Bringing your dog on holiday to the lake district
Pet friendly self catering cottages in and around Hawkshead.
The Lakes are a great place for a holiday with your dog and at Hideaways we offer a wide selection of pet friendly self-catering holiday cottages. Simply use the search for pet friendly properties on our home page to narrow your search.
Most of us hate the idea of leaving pets behind or at the kennels. Some pets, especially dogs, will grieve for the entire holiday and often sulk for days following your return - and who can blame them! The idea of being able to take your dog on your cottage holiday sounds attractive.
Dogs are generally used to travelling in a car and can be taken on holiday without too much bother. You will need to ensure a supply of drinking water and occasional stops for your pet on the way.
The area around Hawkshead offers plenty of low level walks, as well as high mountains nearby. There are plenty of lakes and tarns which dogs love. Also many of the pubs welcome well behaved dogs .
We also would like to point out that as we have ticks in the area, in the fells and farmland, we strongly recommend that you Frontline your dogs before your holiday.
Most properties accept one or two dogs ..for larger groups of dogs please give the office a call to discuss your requirements.
There is a charge of £20 per dog per week and the conditions for the dogs are (failure to do so may result in you being asked to leave without compensation).
• Dogs must be under strict control at all times while on the property.
• Any fouling of lawns etc., must be cleaned up without delay.
• The owner must bring the dogs bed or basket for sleeping in.
• Dogs must not be left alone in the property.
