Visitors to the Lake District will surely agree that come rain or shine getting out on the fells is a must when visiting the Lakes, and with 214 official fells recorded by the famous Alfred Wainwright, there is simply enough to keep you going for a lifetime. A walking break in the Lakes is a fabulous time, taking in Britain’s finest scenery, built up of lakes, woodlands, fells, beautiful valleys and gorges, it’s an experience that should be shared with friends and loved ones. For many of us, dogs are considered part of the family so why should they have to miss out on all the fun… bring them along too!
Officially the UK Dog friendly capital… If you’re looking to book a family holiday but don’t want to leave your furry friend at home, the Lake District is the ideal destination. Keswick, a picturesque market town, was voted the UK’s most dog friendly town in 2014, by the Kennel Club’s ‘Open for Dogs’ annual awards. Keswick has become such a popular holiday choice for dog lovers, that 2015 will see the second year of Keswick Scruffs Dog Show, due to take place on June 21st with classes for the shortest legs, waggiest tails and best biscuit catcher.

Dog friendly Hotels… At Lake District Hotels we understand that dogs are part of the family and for this reason we allow well behaved dogs to stay in all of our hotels with a small supplement per dog. Dog beds and bowls are also available so you don’t have to fill the car with all the extra baggage. Our guests can even take advantage of free walking boot hire from George Fishers, in Keswick.
Stay and capture the memory!
