Dog Friendly Cottages in Grasmere

Grasmere is a small and perfectly formed village in the very heart of the Lake District. The lake sits on the River Rothay, with its own lake only 0.5 miles from the village. The little gem of Grasmere lies conveniently on the main ‘vein’ running through the Lakes, the A591, between Keswick in the north and Ambleside to its south.

Dog friendly self-catering holiday in Grasmere

Dog friendly self-catering accommodation in Grasmere doesn’t come better than this. The astonishing Lake District views start in your cottage, from your morning coffee enjoyed at your very own private veranda to gazing out of the window before an evening soak. When staying in Grasmere you really don’t have to wander far to find yourself amongst this splendid scenery, making it perfect for a holiday away with pets with lots of get up and go.

Let’s take a look at some of the doggy-friendly treats a self-catering holiday in Grasmere holds. Grasmere to Rydal is a 5.6 mile circular walk and a must when staying in the area. It takes in some important historical sightseeing, including Wordsworth’s graves at the beautiful St Oswald’s Church and former home, Dove Cottage, as well as The Wordsworth Museum next door, and then on to part of the famous old Coffin Road. This walk circumnavigates Grasmere Lake as well as Rydal Water, with plenty of opportunities for dogs to refresh and enjoy a splash. Just take care crossing the busy A591, which you have to do at both ends of the walk.

Follow in the footsteps of William and Mary Wordsworth who loved the route up to Easedale Tarn above the village which gives splendid views worthy of a major summit, without the effort!

If you’ve got dogs with lots of energy, take on the more challenging Fairfield, Silver How or Loughrigg to name a few great easily accessible peaks from Grasmere.
The famous Helm Crag walk is a perfect early evening ramble or good for days when you and your dog need a blast of exercise and fresh air but the weather doesn’t look like it’s on your side! On this exhilarating walk look out for the famous ‘Lamb and Lion’ stones that can be seen from the village.
For non-walking days, Grasmere is a charming village itself with plenty going on right on your doorstep and its location on the A591, running the length of the National Park, gives easy access to busier Lake District hotspots. For stocking up your self-catering cottage, Grasmere has a Cop-op mini market and fab delicatessens. There are plenty of dog-friendly tea rooms, great restaurants and pubs as well as an art gallery and shops.
Tweedies Bar in The Dale Lodge Hotel is a particularly great dog friendly pub to end your day at. With great food, real ales and open fire, this is a proper village pub with a very warm welcome to both holidaymakers and dogs. As well as its location in the centre of the Lakes, Grasmere is a popular holiday destination for its history and namely its link with the Romantic poets, in particular William Wordsworth, who wrote some of his most famous works whilst living here.

In Spring when the daffodils and bluebells are in full splendid bloom, Grasmere is a popular place with many visitors heading to the most popular literary shrine in the UK, Wordsworth’s grave in St Oswald’s Church, as well as his ‘Rock of Names’, which can be found off the path behind the centrally-located Wordsworth Museum, and is carved with the initials of William, his sister Dorothy and brother John as well as Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
The 17th Century church is on the banks of the River Rothay, which is an extremely desirable location for holidaymakers, passing right through Grasmere and we have lovely properties sitting right on it.

Larger Lakeland towns are only a short drive or bus ride away from Grasmere. The 599 is an open top bus service running in good summer weather and taking you to Ambleside and Windermere where dogs in particular enjoy an elevated seat with a view!

The 599 stops at must-see attractions such as Wordsworth properties Rydal Mount and Dove Cottage as well as the National Park Visitor Centre, Brockhole, which is a particularly excellent trip out for families with pets. There’s lots of open space, informal gardens and wooded grounds for dogs to enjoy whilst on a lead. And whilst pets are not allowed in the extremely good cafe, they are welcome in the adjoining orangery and outside terrace where there is cover for any drizzly moments. Lots of families use Brockhole so be mindful of picking up dog mess, there’s lots of bins scattered about.
Plus dog-friendly Windermere Lake Cruises make a pickup at Brockhole and boat-confident pets and their owners can hop on and take in more of the south Lake District.

Heading north, it is about a 20 minute drive (13 miles) trip north to Keswick, voted the UK’s most dog friendly town in 2012, 2013 and 2014 by the Kennel Club’s annual ‘Open for Dogs awards’. Hop on the 555 bus.
Open seven days a week, Doggy Paws in Keswick is a superbly stocked dog supply shop and the staff are extremely knowledgeable so if you’re looking for a new harness or accessory for your favourite little hound they look forward to offering a ‘fitting’ service. Now that’s some real doggy retail therapy!
Our Grasmere dog-friendly cottages are hand-picked for their enviable locations and uniqueness and Lakelovers don’t charge anything for bringing your dogs along with you. So enjoy taking a look at our collection and we look forward to welcoming you.
