Choose a pet-friendly Lake District holiday beside Lake Windermere and take your pick of fun activities, from boat cruises over the lake’s 10.5-mile stretch of water to a trail around Orrest Head, sure to blow the cobwebs away and reward you with views of the whole lake. Explore the pretty town of Bowness-on-Windermere or visit the quaint, cobbled town of Ambleside at Windermere’s north end. From there, venture through woodland to discover Stock Ghyll Force, a 70-foot waterfall. If you and your canine companions like a more glamorous day out, you could take a tour of the castles whose imposing forms decorate the landscape. The lakeside estate of Wray Castle is particularly scenic, or take a stroll through 70 acres of rolling grounds and woodland surrounding Muncaster Castle.
