The Lake District is the ideal location for pet friendly self catering holiday cottages in the Lake District with all the family; dogs included! Miles and miles of footpaths and many dog friendly attractions and pubs make the Lake District unbeatable for you and your four-legged friend.
The Lake District has a history of being a great place to bring your dog, regularly winning awards from The Kennel Club for Best Great Outdoors Destination, and containing towns like Keswick that have been previously crowned as ‘Most Dog Friendly Town in Britain’. Because of that, Windermere Marina like to make sure that your holiday cottage is just as dog friendly as the great outdoors, with properties that boast gardens and fantastic walking routes that can be accessed right from the door.
Here at Windermere Marina Village, we are dedicated to providing dog friendly cottages in the Lake District, ensuring you have everything that you need in your self catering accommodation, even down to the dog bowl. There is a charge of £30 per dog staying in a holiday cottage or apartment. Each property is limited to accepting 2 well behaved dogs by prior arrangement, and you can view the full range of suitable properties right here.
We also have a number of Windward Apartments that are pet friendly, as featured below.
Things to do in the Lake District with your Dog
There are a couple of walks right on the doorsteps of our cottages; it's great to leave the car behind and head out onto the hills... you will find further information about what you and your four-legged friend can do in your Windermere Cottage Information.
Cockshott Point: approx 30 mins walk
Leave WMV by the rear entrance, cross the road into the car park, turn left and walk towards the lake; on your right-hand side there will be 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.
Far Sawrey: from 30mins to 2 hrs walk
Leave WMV by the rear entrance, turn left and walk towards (and take) the car ferry. Once you’re on the other side of the lake walk, along the road and a gateway on your right leads to the lake edge. Various footpaths leave this path along the route; all are well signposted.
Pet Friendly Lake District Pubs
The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant at Windermere Marina Village opens its 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. The Watermill at Ings is a little further afield, but is a treat for both man and dog with its own micro-brewery.
