Keswick, in the north Lakes, is one of the most dog friendly holiday places in the UK. You just have to look at the dog bowls and ‘dogs welcome’ signs along the busy high street to see this. It is also one of the most family-friendly places too, what with two excellent public parks and amazing fun swimming center. Then there are the superb walks of Catbells, Blencathra and Skiddaw. And not forgetting the beauty of Derwentwater. In fact, we think that Keswick is simply the most welcoming and friendly place for a holiday!
Let’s take a look at what’s on.
Ooh, and also we’ve got some information on the luxury Keswick Bridge lodge development, featured in the image above, too. Yes, they really are like staying in a tree house with all the mod-cons and comfort of a luxury holiday cottage.
Keswick is an award-winning dog friendly town. The centre is pedestrianised for starters and spilling out onto the town centre streets are cafes and pubs with doggie treats and water bowls galore. Most shops will let you bring your well-behaved dog in so you can also happily browse the superb range of shops with pooch in tow, until he gets bored that is!
Plus, you’ll find Podgy Paws, the best shop for dogs in the Cumbria. A cruise on Derwentwater with Keswick Launch is dog friendly, as is Lingholme Kitchen and Gardens at Portinscale. Whinlatter Forest is easily accessible from Keswick and ideal for a day out with pooch.
