Vast lakes and emerald pastures make the Lake District a beautiful location for a relaxing break.
The Lake District boasts an array of stunning scenery, quaint towns and marked-out trails. It’s a region packed with picture-perfect vistas and wide open spaces, speckled with chocolate box villages and what your dog would likely describe as a lots of giant drinking bowls (or lakes to you and I). There are plenty of walking routes around the National Park, meaning you and your four-legged friend will be spoilt for choice where to explore first.
The sublime area is packed with eye-catching and awe-inspiring views, dazzling the senses as you enter a world far removed from the larger towns and cities of the UK. The infamous Lake Windermere is well worth a visit; as the largest natural lake in Britain, it spans over 11 miles in length and is a popular landmark for water sports and leisurely boat trips. Around the lake many attractions and villages can be found, including the popular location of Ambleside, and the tourist town of Bowness-on-Windermere, home to The World of Beatrix Potter. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs around the area too, which means when you’re tired after a long day of discovery, your four-legged friend can join you in the warmth of a cosy pub to rest their weary legs too.
There are several castles and gardens dotted around the region, perfect for a hit of culture, whilst the Cumberland Pencil Museum can be found in the market town of Keswick – you can look at lead, while your dog is looking at their lead!
A haven for walkers, the Lake District has some outstanding walking routes for both you and your pooch to enjoy; immerse yourself in a world of beauty that’s perfect for you, and pawsome for your pet. Browse our fantastic selection of dog-friendly holiday cottages to find the best fit for you.
