Taking a Dog to the Lake District

Home to the highest mountain in England, it is not surprising that the Lake District attracts its fair share of walkers. Whether you are a serious hill walker, or looking for a more leisurely amble in some beautiful scenery, the combination of the dramatic mountains, ancient forests and wooded shorelines means that every walking ability is catered for. Whilst dogs are welcome to join you for the rewarding hike to the top of Scafell Pike, those (dogs and humans!) less accustomed to rocky fell walking might prefer to explore one of the many walking trails in Grizedale or Whinlatter forests. See how many of the unique sculptures you can spot amongst the trees, hire a bike, admire the rare wildlife, swing through the trees on a high ropes course or simply admire the views.

No holiday to the Lake District is complete without visiting one of its stunning lakes. Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and pretty villages, the largest, and perhaps the most well-known is Lake Windermere. Explore one of the many picturesque bays, take a dip or enjoy a gentle lake side stroll. If you fancy getting on the water, both you and your dog can enjoy a cruise down the lake with Windermere Lake Cruises. The Walkers Ticket allows you to combine a walk across the western shore of the lake before boarding a boat to take you back to your starting point. Alternatively, hop on and off a boat to enjoy one of the many dog friendly attractions, such as the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway or Wray Castle, that are dotted around the shore.

Any adventure seekers will be pleased to know that at West Lakes Adventure in the Eskdale Valley, both you and your dog can take part in a variety of adventurous activities. They even have dog buoyancy aids so your four legged friends can join you for a trip down the lake in a canoe! History and garden lovers should explore the hidden gardens at Lowther Castle and Gardens near Penrith or the wild woodland garden at Muncaster Castle and Gardens near Ravenglass.

Whether you are looking for a cottage to rent with a cosy wood burner, large enclosed garden or walks from the door, we have a huge selection to choose from. Grab your walking boots, pack your camera and Kendal mint cake and set off on a Cumbrian adventure!
