Pet-friendly cottages & accommodation in Grasmere, Lake District
This delightful Cumbrian village in the heart of the Lake District is powerful dog walking country. With fells aplenty and the popular Lake Grasmere a short walk from the village, there are many scenic experiences to be had. Grab your lead and head out early morning in summer when the mist rises above the lake or during frosty winter months, when bracing country walks are on the agenda. Walk through the village up to Easedale Tarn where dogs of all ages can potter along the trails at the bottom of the valley as well as enjoy a fun splash in the stream. Fitter dogs and owners can head up to the fells and enjoy the spectacular views.
Associations with the Lake Poets have made Grasmere possibly one of the most popular villages in the area. Wordsworth lived in Grasmere for 14 years and called it ‘the loveliest spot that man hath ever found’. While we agree, we think that ‘dog’ should be included somewhere in that phrase as this traditional village gives a cheery welcome to canines from all over the country to its cafes, restaurants and pubs, more often than not with a bowl of fresh water and a handful of tasty biscuits. You're also well-placed in Grasmere to explore other popular spots in the Lake District such as Ambleside, Keswick, Windermere and Coniston.
