Dog Friendly Cottages

When you choose a self catering holiday cottage, you want to really make yourself at home. No hotel staff. Full control over what you eat. No maids trying to change your bed before you're ready to get out of it. But you might feel there's something missing. Something that gets in the way of that ‘home away from home’ feeling.

If you're a dog owner, your pet is part of the family. Maybe even your favourite family member. So it's fair to say you could never really feel at home without them nearby.

The Lake District is a fantastic place to take your canine friend. And that's official according to the voters of the Be Dog Friendly awards . All these rolling hills and ancient forests waiting for you and your dog to explore would be a bit of a waste if there was nowhere to stay.

Fortunately that's not the case. The Lake District is teeming with places to stay. Many of them are dog friendly, too. But, it can be time consuming trying to find out whether or not a cottage or b & b accepts pets. It's more than a little disheartening to think you've found the perfect place, only to see somewhere in the small print ‘no dogs allowed’.

Luckily, we've made things as easy as possible for you. On this page you'll find a list of all the Absolute Escapes cottages that offer a warm welcome to your four-legged friend.

If you opt for a dog friendly country cottage, you ensure you have the best time. Being close to your dog means you may worry if they're not with you. Taking the dog along means your mind will be at rest, and you can truly relax. What's the point of a holiday if you can't unwind?

Cottages that accept dogs also help you squeeze some more valuable exercise into your stay. Dogs need walks. That's just fact. If you're able to bring your pooch along you get a four-legged personal trainer that won't give up until you've taken them out into the beautiful Lakes.

Pet friendly properties will save you money too. If you've no one to look after your dog while you venture to the lakes, you could end up paying hundreds in boarding kennels fees. Taking your pet with you means you avoid this and you won't have to worry if they're being treated properly.
