The Best Pet Friendly Holiday Cottages in Ulverston

On the Furness Peninsula, just a five-minute drive to the beach, there is a great selection of holiday cottages in Ulverston for dogs, as well as pubs serving ales, many independent stores, and things to do.

With names of villages and hamlets such as Buckabridge, Buttermere, Coffin Walk, Shap and Penny Bridge, and magical scenery on every turn, you will be forgiven if you imagine yourself in a fairy tale when you visit this southern tip of Cumbria.

About Holidays In Ulverston With Dogs

You will be in the South Lakeland district’s enviable position on the edge of the stunning National Park. Whether it is a cottage in a small hamlet or even one in the centre of Ulverston, there are views of the fells over Coniston on the one side and the coast.

If your dogs love a good shoreline scamper, then you have a few options to explore in this area. Morecambe Bay is an obvious choice, but if you are prepared to walk a little further, you will come to Bardsea Beach, one of the lesser-known bits of coastline near Ulverston. It is part shingle and part sand, making it ideal for some bracing walks with your beasties.

Ulverston is a great base for walking and mountain biking, but if you are partial to sitting back and enjoying the views, then a drive across to Lake Windermere will only take half an hour. An alternative to driving is a scenic steam train ride right into the heart of the Lake District National Park, with dog friendly activities abound.

A short trip across the “border” into the Lake District National Park should include a stop at Hawkshead where you can visit the National Trust’s Hill Top Farm, where children’s author Beatrix Potter lived. If you really want to wax lyrical about this picturesque village, then take time out to explore the gardens and woodland at Graythwaite Hall. Designed by Thomas Mawson, a Lake Windermere landscaper, the six acres are thought to have been the inspiration for Potter’s “The Pony Caravan” and poet Wordsworth was a regular visitor here.

Closer to Ulverston and just across the peninsula, you can visit Grange On Sands, a picture-perfect Victorian seaside town, or take the seven-minute train ride to the small village of Cartmel, renowned for its quaint shops and racecourse.  

Make for Morecambe Bay

If you are in the market town of Ulverston, on the southern tip of the Lake District, take a walk along the shortest canal in England that in just over a mile will find you and Fido on the coast. It is flat all the way as the canal takes you towards Morecambe Bay.

You can stop for refreshments at Canal Foot at the dog friendly Bay Horse pub and closer to the shoreline. You might catch a glimpse of cormorants drying their wings in the trees. It is a gentle half-hour ramble that is wheelchair friendly too. Then you can retreat to your Ulverston cottage.

Bowness on Windermere in the Lake District National Park

You will be in the South Lakeland district, so it would be rude not to take the short drive into the heart of the Lake District National Park from Ulverston to the iconic Lake Windermere. Make for Bowness on Windemere, the most bustling of all the towns in the area.

Stock up on provisions for a picnic in the market town of Ulverston and take the half an hour drive to Lake Windermere. Here you can take the dog friendly ferry across the water to Fell Foot Park for your picnic.

Full Steam Ahead on the Haversthwaite and Lakeland Railway, South Lakes

If your little terrier is a trainspotter, then this is a great way to see the Lakes in all their glory. At the most southern tip of the South Lakeland District, near Ulverston, you can catch the train and will you to and through some of the prettiest parts of the region.

The charming Haversthwaite Station, with its gift shop and tearoom on the platform, is just six miles from Ulverston. If you have all the time in the world, then there is dog friendly woodland beside the station to explore.
