Before booking our dog-friendly Lake District Hotel:
In the interests of hygiene and the comfort of other guests, we would appreciate it if you could kindly adhere to the following guidelines when visiting this pet friendly hotel in the Lake District:
What to consider for a dog-friendly Lake District trip?
Dogs are a fantastic addition to the Lake District and there is so much to explore in the towns, tarns and mountains that dominate our beloved region. However, if you are planning to bring your pooch to the Lakes, there are a few factors you should consider in terms of both the environment and the hotel you stay in.
Planning on taking your dog up a mountain?
Every year, people try to force their dogs up some of the biggest mountains in the Lake District. While some dogs are working breeds well accustomed to exercise, others may not enjoy long walks and the hazards of hillwalking. If you are going to bring your dog to the Lake District, try easier walks such as Sale Fell rather than Scafell Pike – and ensure they are properly protected against the elements. Doggy boots and other pieces of equipment may be necessary.
Can you protect your dog from the cold?
Dogs in the Lake District are often exposed to harsh temperatures, especially when taken up into the mountains. If you are bringing your dog for a walk and it has a short coat, it is always worth bringing some extra weather protection – just in case.
Can you keep your dog on a lead?
With lots of wildlife around, it is often necessary to keep your dog on a leader when walking in more populated areas of the Lake District. Even in ‘wild’ areas, it may still be a good idea to keep your dog on the lead to avoid accidental wildlife attacks, slips or even falls.
Can you dry your dog off properly?
We are no strangers to rainfall here in the Lake District, so it is always wise to come prepared whatever the forecast. A wet pooch can take a long time to dry, so always bring a towel with you. When looking for a dog-friendly hotel in the Lake District, consider one that offers a doggy hairdryer like we do, so you can get your pet warm and dry quickly.
