Activities & Things To Do

Lingholm Kitchen and Walled Garden

On the north-western shore of Derwentwater, this attraction is ideal for the whole family, Fido included. This is the very place where Beatrix Potter and her family spent their summer holidays, and little has changed since the early 1900s.

The original kitchen garden is thought to be the inspiration of Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Once you’ve tucked into an afternoon tea here made up of homemade cake, jump aboard the Keswick Launch from the garden’s private jetty to sightsee on the lake.

Stone Circle Walk from Keswick Town Centre

This is a delightful four-mile walk to a Castlerigg, one of about 1,300 stone circles in the UK and France. Thought to date back to 3,300 BC, a plateau forms the raised centre of a naturally formed amphitheatre to see some of the highest peaks in Cumbria.

Put two hours aside for this scenic walk that leaves from Keswick’s town centre, taking you through woodland and over the River Greta and up a moderate incline that is suitable for all fitness levels.

Whinlatter Forest, Lake District National Park.

Some dog-friendly cottages are close to this, England’s only true mountain forest just above Braithwaite. It has a visitor centre where you can start your day off by planning a trail with your dog in tow. All the routes are waymarked and are suitable for all ages and abilities.

About Holidays In Keswick With Dogs

All of these dog-friendly cottages are at the gateway to the lakes, where outdoor activities are the order of the day. If you are a thrill-seeker, then you won’t have to look any further for activities that are not for the faint-hearted. You might have to leave Fido with a more sedate family member as you do a day of ghyll scrambling. This type of “canyoning” involves navigating a rocky mountain river, climbing up rock faces, and jumping into elevated pools.

Your staycation doesn’t have to be hair-raising, however, as there are straightforward walks from the front doors of these dog-friendly cottages that will take your breath away. Derwentwater is on the Keswick’s doorstep and if you and Rover enjoy a good ramble, then lakeside walks have to be on your to-do list.

A walk through the gardens of Hope Park, along the lake, past the boat landings up to Friar’s Crag is a popular option. Keswick town boasts numerous shops upon your return and afterwards, why not reward yourself with a pint of local ale, perhaps from the Keswick Brewing Company, in one of the many dog-friendly pubs around the square.

There is always something happening right in the town centre with its enormous square thought to have the best market in the Lake District. You have to stay central for this on a Thursday or Saturday. About 60 traders set up their stalls all the way from the top of the market square down to Bank Street. Stock up on local produce such as fresh fish, meat, preserves and artisan bread. If you are not in the mood for cooking, there are a few stalls that do take-aways. If your holiday pad has an open fire, don’t forget the marshmallows.

The Last Word

The accommodation is varied from Victorian mid-terraced houses to town centre apartments. There are even barn conversions that offer all the accommodation on the ground floor. Some have an open fire or wood-burning stove and all have gas or oil central heating.

Whether you are looking for a petite cottage garden, an open fire, swimming pool, hot tub or a local golf course, these homely holiday cottage rests have it all. The town boasts numerous independent shops full of local arts and crafts and fresh produce, such as the famous Cumberland sausage.
