Cumbria is dominated by the Lake District, one of the definitive spots of natural beauty in the UK and a must-see for many people. Famous for hundreds of years for its beauty the Lake District has inspired countless works of literature from Beatrix Potter to William Wordsworth.
The Lake District is unsurprisingly dominated by lakes, the largest of which is Lake Windermere- also the largest lake in England.
This large, beautiful and serene lake has countless walks around its perimeter and is the basis of Arthur Ransome’s classic novel- Swallows and Amazons.
Derwentwater is another iconic and charming English lake.
Surrounded by wooded fells it is fed by the River Derwent and just like Windermere has an extensive network of footpaths around the lake, meaning a dog-walker can enjoy the beauty of the lake and tranquillity of the surrounding forest.
Keswick offers plenty for the weary walkers and many of the cafes and pubs here are more than happy to accept dogs.
Cumbria is not just about magnificent lakes, it is also home to Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Famously built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian to keep out the Celts, this wall stretches 73 miles from sea to sea and cuts through wild landscape and rolling hills.
Cumbria is a beautiful county and one of the best places to bring a dog in the whole of the UK. With Farm Stay dog friendly cottages and B&Bs you can holiday in this stunning county alongside your pet, in high quality accommodation.
