In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Lake District Hotel Group has launched a very special offer for the Queens favourite dog – Corgi’s get to stay for free in all their hotels throughout June!
22% of British households include a dog, though not many include up to eight corgis that the Queen keeps. All the Lake District Hotels welcome dogs, but this is the first time the hotel has waived bed and board cost just for Corgi’s. And as a special treat when they arrive – their owners will be given a free copy of the Lake District Hotel Walking Guide so the dogs can make the most of the area.
Kit Graves, Director of Lake District Hotel Group said “We are very patriotic and we also love dogs so we thought this would be a fitting tribute. Welsh in origin, there are very few Corgi’s inCumbria, but when they visit they will feel right at home. We invitedFerguson, the only Cumbrian Corgi we know to join us for afternoon tea with owner Jen Cartmel fromClever-DogTraining School. ‘Ferg’s’ was a fantastic model for our photo shoot and enjoyed sitting in front of the fire, running in the gardens and admiring our afternoon tea. Certainly very well behaved!”
The Borrowdale Hotel close to Keswick is one of the groups most popular destinations for dog lovers, with riverside walks and craggy fells right on the doorstep – it also has a covered walkway by the downstairs bedrooms which is ideal for drying off dogs www.lakedistricthotels.net
