About Breaks in the Lakes with Dogs

If you have ever been on a quiet and relaxing holiday in the Lake District before, then you’ll know it’s a wonderful central location for some dog walks in the Lake District and countryside vistas this end of the country has to offer. Lake Windermere in itself is perhaps the most majestic spot for you to visit on your holiday trails, however, you should also make a point of exploring Coniston Water and the local village scenery. You might even find a few quaint dog friendly pubs close to your location, too!

Holidays in the Lake District are made that little bit more special when you specifically book a lodge holiday that enjoys a peaceful location. Holiday lodges and chalets really do match the wonderful lakeside aesthetic! What’s more, a lodge holiday close to the glistening waters and countryside trails in the region will really be magical for dogs in search of new things to sniff out.

The Last Word

If you really want to get up close and personal with the great outdoors, then the Lake District is always going to be your ideal breakaway. Even more so, of course, if you have pets and want to stretch their legs in a truly beautiful location. The walking routes here go on for miles and miles, meaning that even the most energetic pooch will find plenty to see and do here.

You should also make a point to book yourself in for a log cabin break. The lakes have this fantastic, natural beauty to them that’s made all the more special with an authentic cabin. However, just because you’re staying in a cabin on the shores of Lake Windermere doesn’t mean you get to go without all mods cons. Far from it, in fact.

We’ve hunted down stylish chalets and cabins that boast Wi-Fi, smart TVs, modern kitchen essentials and more besides. We’ve made sure to find rustic properties that are modern and convenient, while still within walking distance of the best that the lakes have to offer.

Dog friendly lodges in the lake District are truly magnificent. They have plenty of room, offer lots of easy access to the great outdoors, and will also give you and any other humans you bring with you plenty of home comforts! It’s also amazing how much peace and quiet you can get out here, too – even in the heart of the Lake District, it’s always really easy to break away onto walking routes where you are far from the madness of the cities and towns beyond.

However, do also take the time to explore the local village and town scenes! The Lake District is about more than just – well – lakes. Whether you’re staying in a secluded lodge or are based in a quiet holiday park, you might want to take a look out at the town of Keswick, or Bowness on Windermere itself, which offers all the sleepy village essentials you’ll likely be reading about before you depart!

Above all, we’ve gone to the effort to find dog friendly holiday spots in the Lakes that we know you’ll want to come back to again and again. Dog friendly lodges are popping up more and more around the shores of Lake Windermere and beyond, so now really is the time to take full advantage.
