Things to do in the Lake District with your Dog
Here are a couple of walks right on our doorstep, it's great to leave the car behind and head out onto the hills... You will find further information on what you and your four-legged friend can do in your Windermere Cottage Information.
Cockshott Point: approx 30 mins walk
Leave WMV by rear entrance, cross the road into the car park turn left and walk towards the lake, on your right hand side there is a path leading off, after crossing the small bridge take the swing gate on your left to walk along ‘Cockshott Point’. When you come to the main road turn right and walk along the road, the swing gate on your right after the farm track leads you back to the car park across farm land.

Pet Friendly Lake District Pubs
The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant at Windermere Marina Village opens it's door to well behaved dogs as well as their well behaved owners! The Royal Oak on Kendal Road and the Ship Inn on Glebe Road in Bowness both welcome well behaved dogs.
