Why not take a short break to rejuvenate your mind and body, bagging a few Wainwrights and enjoying some local food and drink. Or, stay for a week and you’ll have the time to fully relax and take to the outdoors. Or, a peaceful Christmas break or a New Year getaway to the heart of the Lake District with your family and your dog will be an unforgettable holiday.

Out and about with the dog

Dogs have long been a feature of Lake District culture. Border Collies tending flocks of sheep, hounds and gun dogs for hunting. And of course the Lakeland and Border Terriers, arguably the best company on a long walk in the fells. Did you know that the sport of hound trailing is pursued only in Cumbria? This is where a scented aniseed trail is laid and the hounds run after it. The hounds can reach speeds of over twenty miles per hour! The relationship between man, dog and the land is ingrained. Making the Lake District a particularly special place to spend time with your canine pal.

Lakelovers proudly support Lake District Mountain Rescue Dog Association, a volunteer-run charity who save lives on the fells and lowlands of the Lake District National Park all year around.

Exploring the Lake District with your dog can be as varied and exciting or as relaxed and peaceful as you want it to be. Circumnavigate one of its many waters, Ullswater or Coniston for example are a good-sized walks. Most people and dogs can undertake without too much effort. Once en route, you’ll find yourself drinking in the countryside and fresh air that’s all around you. Walk to the top of one of the famous fells, such as Helvellyn or Cat Bells and challenge yourself and Sparky to a grand adventure. At the end of a long day of fun, treat yourself to a well-earned drink in one of the region’s many dog friendly pubs or bars. Then head back to your dog friendly accommodation in the Lake District.

Dog friendly pubs

Some pubs and bars are more welcoming to dogs than others. So here’s a taste of some of the best dog friendly pubs in the Lake District.

The Watermill Inn is located in Ings, to the east of Windermere. The Inn has an excellent reputation; it’s suitable for families and is dog friendly. Enjoy a hearty pub meal and enjoy one of the many real ales that the Inn offers. Including some brewed on site in the Watermill Brewery.

Meanwhile in Cartmel, the 450 year old Cavendish Arms is another great option for dog owners. It also has a good reputation, boasts a menu that pays homage to Cumbian produce and serves a wide range of beer, ales and wine.

The Drunken Duck is one of the most famous gastropubs in the region, and deserves this reputation. It has excellent food and great beer brewed on site at the Barngate Brewery. They name many of their ales after pet dogs, including Tag Lag, Red Bull Terrier and Cracker!
