Dog Friendly Cottages in the Lake District

With its abundance of walks, hills and lakes to explore, what better place to take the family pet than in the majestic Lake District?

The largest National Park in England, the Lake District needs no introduction. The majestic mountains of Scarfell Pike and Helvellyn are famous the world over for their rugged beauty and the lakes of Windermere, Grasmere and Ullswater attract thousands of visitors each year. Wordsworth immortalised the region in his poems and Beatrix Potter drew inspiration for her books from the wildlife she saw whilst living there.
