Top 5 Dog Friendly Pubs in the Lake District - Posted 24 Apr 2017
We truly are a nation of dog lovers and we’ve come to expect that our beloved pets can join us on holiday. There’s no better place to bring your four-legged friend than the Lake District, an inspiring landscape of majestic mountains and glistening lakes, all to be explored whilst throwing a few obligatory sticks for the dog.
Every good walk should, naturally, end with a well-deserved pint in a Lakeland pub or a hearty meal in one of the many welcoming hostelries our area has to offer. The great news is that there’s an abundance of pubs that will welcome your dog with open arms… and maybe offer them a treat or two for good measure. We’ve listed some of our favourites below.
Cavendish Arms, Cartmel – This 450 year old coaching inn in the centre of the charming village of Cartmel is the perfect place to while away a few hours. With quaint low-beamed ceilings and a roaring log fire in winter, it’s quintessentially English.

JOHN & CLARE SERGINSON
During our early careers in the advertising industry, based in London, we loved coming to the Lake District to refresh and recharge. The contrast between the buzz of London and the serenity and sheer majestic beauty of the lakes and mountains a real tonic. With long walks during the day, simply taking in the landscape, returning to a cosy cottage or hotel for the evening we could think of nothing or anywhere more perfect. In 1993 we decided to move to the Lake District for a whole new life, with an idea of creating our own cottage agency, one different from others, one that would offer visitors an exceptional experience, where quality not numbers mattered. We hoped our skills, John an advertising still life photographer and Clare head of various Ad Agency print and art buying departments, would benefit home owners and holidaymakers, presenting holiday homes in an exciting manner, along with lots of information about the area, the attractions and just why, like us, once visited you to will fall in love with this unique part of England. Come - enjoy.
