You can visit the Victorian seaside town’s ornamental gardens, walk along the historic promenade and have a game of fetch with Fido on the beach. The village is only two miles from the village of Cartmel itself, a village on the southernmost tip of the Lake District. The shores of the Lake District’s Windermere are a mere 15-minute drive and to travel to the bustling town of Bowness on Windermere should take you about half an hour.

Before you venture into the Lake District proper, you will likely spend a good portion of your time in picture-perfect Cartmel, a chic destination characterised by a dizzying maze of lanes and bridges crossing the river. Here you can head for a dog friendly pub such as The Pig and Whistle.

Most Cartmel pubs are partial to pooches of any size and have riverside beer gardens. The architecture of this charming village is enhanced with traditional Lake District stone and lime-washed buildings with the priory rising above them.

Train and Trek to Grange Over Sands

Most of our four-legged friends can’t resist a good scamper on the beach. The Lake District is not known for its beaches, but take the train to Grange and let your little beastie blow out the cobwebs on the shoreline.

After a walk along the Victorian promenade, start your trek back to base. From Grange, walk up to the Fell, then down to Carmel, which is just under three miles. Return to Cark through the Cartmel Racecourse to clock up an extra two paw miles.

Cartmel Priory

It is only a two-mile walk into the pretty village of Cartmel, with its quaint streets lined with independent shops. You and your pooch will be more than welcome into Cartmel Priory, one of the few churches that remain intact after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1500s.

Walk through Cromwell’s Door, still marked with bullet holes fired by villages when the Roundhead troops attempted to stable their horses in the knave. Take a selfie against the original stained glass medieval window.
