“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.” -Groucho Marx

As dog owners ourselves, we understand how important it is that, as a member of your family, your dog should be able to come and enjoy the delights of a relaxing holiday with you;  especially a holiday in the Lakes! 

The Lake District has been voted winner of the 'Be Dog Friendly' Great Outdoors award, due to it's excellent accessibility and perfect destinations for dogs, and their owners to enjoy long walks up on the Cumbrian fells.  

This is why we ensure that your four-legged friend is made to feel as welcome as you are!   The majority of our team are dog lovers and our regular canine guests become very well known by our staff! 

What you'll need:

A well behaved dog that's OK around other dogs, people and children.


A lead for your dog whilst in the public areas


Your dog's bed, food and favourite toy to help them feel more at home!


For this reason, all of our rooms are dog friendly, as well as many other areas of the hotel.


It's easy to have your dog stay with you, just notify us before you arrive!  


We simply charge a one off fee of £10, per dog that comes to stay, whether you're here for one night or 10, to cover cleaning!


You are more than welcome to have your dog sit with you during breakfast and your evening meal.  All you need to do is let us know when you'd like them to sit with you and we can arrange a table in the bar. Please let us know as soon as possible upon arrival, so we can make the necessary arrangements.  


We hope you understand but we cannot accept dogs in the conservatory, lounge or in the breakfast room, to ensure that we are also people friendly for those guests who may have allergies or be wary of dogs.
