The Lake District

Sana enjoying the snow on Latrigg
Hello everyone, we hope you all had a loved up Valentine day.
As most of you know we live in Cumbria, right on the edge of the Lake District National Park, we do lots of hiking with Mum and the Lakes is like a big doggy playground!
The Lake District is such an amazing stunning place. It is home to Englands biggest mountain Scafell Pike (3209ft), longest lake, Windermere (11.23 miles) and lake Wast Water (258ft)

The Lake District is very dog friendly, with over 3,100km of rights of way footpaths for you and your four legged friend to enjoy. There are countless landscapes to enjoy, forest to dig up and sniff, mountain tops to conquer and lakes to swim.

As the landscape is so varied it suits any kind of dog. If your dog is very active you can walk for as long as you want reaching several fell summits in a day (if you are very fit!) a walk round the flatter levels for the less active or less brave! One thing to remember though, the Lakes is home to a lot of livestock, especially sheep and it is very important to keep your dog under control at all times around them.

Oh, there are even CAVES to explore!

Once you and your furry friend have hiked, swam and any other outdoor activity, the many little towns of the Lakes are very dog friendly with many of the shops, pubs and restaurants accepting well behaved dogs. So you really can enjoy every moment together. 
Don' mind me Mum, just browsing.
With the Lakes being so dog friendly, it seems only fit that there is accommodation that is the same way, Lake Lovers offers an amazing range of dog friendly cottages to make you visit extra special.
