A friendly welcome for your four legged friend

Jo Spencer - Thursday, January 28, 2016

The British are a dog loving nation. Our pet pooches are a big part of our lives – and our families. That includes holidays, so what a relief that the Lake District is renowned for welcoming our four legged friends with open arms. Enjoying a pint in a cosy pub with a roaring fire is the norm up here and luckily, we have a few recommendations for pubs where you can bring your dog:

The Kings Arms, Hawkshead:

Be transported back in time at the Kings Arms in the charming and historical village of Hawkshead. You will be greeted with original oak beams, an open fire and friendly faces. What more could you ask of this 500 year old inn? The inn is relaxed and informal and welcomes both children and dogs.
For further information, see:

Tower Bank Arms, near Sawrey:

The Tower Bank Arms is located in the heart of Near Sawrey, an attractive hamlet between Hawkshead and the western shore of Lake Windermere. Next door to the pub is ‘Hill Top’, the famous and former home of Mrs Heelis, better known as Beatrix Potter. The Tower Bank Arms will be familiar to generations of children as the small country Inn in ‘The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck’, so a visit is well worth it if you have the time. In addition, they are very doggy friendly, with pooches allowed in both the bar and garden areas.
For further information, see:

The Screes Inn, Wasdale:

The Screes Inn is a traditional village local and a great base for walking and climbing. Based in the small hamlet village of Nether Wasdale in the beautiful Wasdale valley, the Screes Inn is a ‘stones throw’ from ‘Britain's Favourite View’, the deepest lake in England, Wast Water, and the highest peak in England, Scafell Pike. The inn offers a relaxed and informal environment, with food cooked using only fresh local produce, a roaring fire, live music and dogs welcomed!
For further information, see:

The Priest Hole, Ambleside:

Sit and watch the world go by from the terrace of the 16th Century priest hole in the heart of Ambleside. On a sunny day, there’s no better spot. Part of Kelsick Old Hall, one of the oldest buildings in the village, the Priest Hole has been lovingly restored with oak panelling, floorboards and original fireplaces. The menu is a mix of British and Mediterranean dishes, all of which can be enjoyed in the company of your dog!
