The popular south Lakes resort town of Windermere is often seen as the ‘capital’ of England’s largest National Park, largely because of its excellent transport links, in particular the train station, from which the resort was built around.
Many of our guests return time and again to Windermere because of its superb transport links – road, train, boat and foot – which allow for very easy and convenient exploration of the south Lakes as well as popular northern villages and towns and breathtaking north lakes scenery.
Travelling to and from Windermere is so easy in fact, you may choose to go car free, which we know goes down a treat with dogs who love a trip on the scenic 599 open top bus and Windermere ferry!
Let’s take a look at some of our dog friendly cottages in Windermere and the surrounding area and we’re sure that tails will be wagging with joy at what you find.

Dog friendly self-catering accommodation in Windermere

The bustling Lakeland town of Windermere, only a three hour train journey from London Euston, attracts a multitude of visitors each year, with 1.2 million sailing on the lake, and is one of the most popular UK holiday destinations, quite simply because it has so much to offer – unrivalled scenery, including England’s largest lake and some of the highest peaks in the country, unique attractions, history and culture.
And we know that you’ll want to bring your whole family along with you on a holiday to Windermere, including your cheeky four-legged furry friends, which is why with Lakelovers pets stay free. And also why we have worked hard to make sure we offer a large and unique selection of the best pet friendly cottages across the Windermere region.
Lakelovers have over 40 years experience as the Lake District’s premier self-catering holiday and we pride ourselves on offering some of the finest properties in the region. Only properties that are independently rated 3-5 star by VisitEngland are accepted into our portfolio, which includes the largest collection of Gold rated self-catering cottages in the region. So, you don’t just have to take our word for it when we promise uncompromising quality. And we know how important pets are when booking a relaxing holiday away, which is why this quality is not compromised in our range of dog friendly self-catering accommodation in Windermere and across the Lake District. The best in the Lake District, for you and your pets, guaranteed.
A happy owner means a happy pooch, which is why our pet friendly properties have features designed to go above and beyond in delivering a truly relaxing self-catering holiday – WiFi, private parking, al fresco dining areas, open-plan sociable spaces, luxury bathrooms including power showers and roll top bathtubs, designer kitchens and stylish, plush interiors.
For ‘man’s best friend’ there’s secure, private gardens, cosy log burners and walks straight from the cottage door for evening ‘walkies’ and early morning run-arounds.

Choosing a dog friendly holiday in Windermere

Dog friendly cottages in and around Windermere put you in a perfect location for lots of doggy activities and treats.
About a half an hour walk from Windermere town centre gets you to the lakeshore or you can hop on the regular 599 bus. Here, at Bowness Bay you’ll find plenty to do including several ‘Miles without Stiles’ walks, ideal for less active pets and owners. A great one is the amble from Bowness to the National Trust sign-posted Cockshott Point. This circular route makes for a perfect slice of evening of fresh air. Here you’ll enjoy the tranquil lakeside views and wildlife (short leads for dogs during breeding season, from March to July).

For a shortcut to Windermere’s ‘secret’ western shore, catch the car ferry, carrying up to 18 cars and over 100 passengers, which you can walk or drive onto, with your pooch in tow. Here you can head to Grizedale Forest, a particularly great day out for dogs, as well as catching the minibus service during the summer months to Hawkshead and surrounding countryside, enjoyed by famous Children’s author Beatrix Potter and her much-loved working Collie Kep.
Head north of Windermere town to Brockhole Visitor Centre, half way to Ambleside, which is also perfect for some fresh air with pets as well as kids. There’s a covered outside space at the well-serviced café for dogs to enjoy a spot of lunch.
If it’s attractions that draw you to Windermere and the south Lakes, then both Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway allow dogs, as does the Lakeland Motor Museum.
Whilst staying in Windermere you should not miss the uphill, but short ramble to Orrest Head, which rewards you with panoramic views of the lake, over to Coniston and the Langdale peaks. You can extend this walk north to the quiet valley of Troutbeck (don’t miss dog friendly pub, The Mortal Man in the Troutbeck Valley) and even up to Ambleside.
As expected in such a popular holiday area, there’s a healthy choice of dog friendly eateries in both Windermere and Bowness, including Coffee Bar 7 in Windermere.

Dogs are welcomed to ‘drink responsibly’ at The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant at Windermere Marina Village and traditional pubs The Royal Oak and the Ship Inn in Bowness.

With the superb Booths supermarket, stocking lots of local grocery products, as well as a Co-op, Windermere is a perfect self-catering holiday town and don’t forget to nip into Lakeland Pet Supplies on the main road running through the town for some doggy treats.

Jump on Windermere Lake Cruises – dogs travel for free all year round – heading south to Lakeside or up to Ambleside, where you’ll also find plenty of dog friendly walks and eateries.
If you’re looking for a busier scene, we also have over 40 dog friendly cottages in Bowness, a former fishing village and now a bustling holiday resort sitting halfway along the shore of Windermere and under 1 ½ miles from Windermere and its excellent transport routes.
If you’re flexible on location, why not browse Lakelovers pet friendly cottages across the Lakes, or get in touch with our excellent Customer Service team who would love to help by calling 015394 88855 or emailing enquiries@lakelovers.co.uk.
