Reasons Why Your Dog Will Love Travelling with You to the Lake District

With a wealth of outdoor activities, including hiking and boating, it's easy to find activities for you and your furry friend to enjoy together. Among the many options, highlights of dog-friendly holidays in the Lake District include:

  • 1. Scafell Pike

    England's highest mountain is a beautiful destination for experienced hikers. The climb is craggy and steep, but the view from the peak is well worth it. The trip up and back takes about seven hours, so bring snacks for both people and pooches and be sure to check the weather.

  • 2. Windermere Lake Cruises

    Windermere Lake offers several options for dog-friendly boating. Departing from Bowness Pier, well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome on both guided sightseeing cruises and self-guided rental boats. Though dogs travel free, they get their own "Well-Behaved Dog" ticket as a souvenir of their lake experience.

  • 3. Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway

    Bring your dog and jump aboard the train at Haverthwaite Station for a nostalgic ride through the Lake District countryside. The journey ends at the edge of Lake Windermere, near The Lakes Aquarium. Note that the 2018 season for the railway runs from 24th March to 28th October.

  • 4. Brantwood at Coniston

    Consider a visit to this historic estate, former home of 19th-century artist and agriculturalist John Ruskin. The house is open to the public, but the real attraction for dog owners is the extensive system of lovely gardens, where canine friends are welcome. You can even bring dogs on leads into the coffee house for a snack.
