Our Dog Friendly Hotel In The Lake District

As one of the premier dog friendly hotels in the lake district you can expect lots of treats and a big welcome for your pooch - at check-in you will receive a pet information pack which has some bits you’ll need for your stay including a water bowl and some tasty treats.

Our Dog Friendly Fabulous Rooms

Our ground floor fabulous rooms have been refurbished for those guests who want to bring a 4 legged friend to the Lake District. These rooms are spacious, light, bright, airy and truly fabulous with super king beds and luxury amenities.

We know that dogs are bound to get muddy - in the Lakes this is unavoidable! There will be a dog blanket and a dog towel in your room. Up to 2 dogs may stay in a room, but please check out our doggy house rules before arriving!

Dog Friendly Cottages

Looking to bring the whole family? We have made some of our beautiful holiday cottages (or nests as we like to call them) dog-friendly. Suitable for 2 to 8 (humans that is!) plus up to 2 dogs, our nests all feature:

  • A private terrace with outdoor fireplace
  • Super king beds
  • Roll top baths
  • Double walk-in rain showers
  • Indoor log burners

The luxury Lake District cottages come with central heating and fully equipped kitchens with range cookers, fridge freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, irons & ironing boards. There is also a supply of tea towels, oven gloves and a full log basket!

You have use of the full amenities at the hotel including the pool and health club area (subject to booking).


Dog House Rules

  1. Only specified rooms have been furnished for dogs, so all dogs must be declared when booking. We allow up to 2 dogs per room and each dog is charged at £35 per night
  2. If a room is damaged or super messy, there will be a charge for cleaning or repair costs at check-out
  3. Please be mindful of other guests and keep dogs on a lead at all times whilst in the property
  4. Dogs are welcome everywhere in the hotel apart from our brasserie, function spaces and health club area (as much as your pooch might want to test out the pool!)
  5. Dogs cannot be left unsupervised in the rooms other than for very short periods if you want to eat in the brasserie or visit our health club. Never leave the dog in the room if you intend to leave the hotel premises.
  6. There will be a dog blanket in your room but we know dogs like their own beds so please bring your dog bed with you.
  7. Please keep dogs of the beds and soft furnishings
  8. Dogs are bound to get muddy - in the Lakes this is unavoidable! Your room will have a dog towel but please bring an extra dog towel if your dog is particularly large or likes to get very muddy.
  9. In order to ensure our other guests have a peaceful stay we have a right to terminate your stay immediately due to any excessive barking or unsociable behaviour.
  10. Your room will not be serviced whilst a dog is in situ
  11. Dog blankets, bowls and towels are for use throughout your stay, please do not take them home with you, they are available to purchase should your dog take a particular liking to them
  12. And it goes without saying that you must pick up after your dog. Reception will always have a spare poop bag if you need one!
  13. Dogs can dine with you in The Swan Inn, but not in the Brasserie - and dogs will not be permitted to be left unattended after 8pm.

We aim to the be one of the best dog-friendly hotels in the Lake District, to achieve this we hope that you'll respect our dog house rules, thank you.
