You can choose from either Thanet Well Lodge Retreat or Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat for blissful pet friendly holidays in the Lake District. Both of our resorts have their own unique character with stunning views and plenty of opportunities to get out and about in the countryside. Read on to find out which of our destinations would be most suitable for your pet and their human companions.
Dog Friendly Lodges in the Lake District at Thanet Well
Situated on the edge of Greystoke Forest, Thanet Well Lodge Retreat is a secluded location ideal for those looking for a holiday escape surrounded by the stunning Lake District countryside.
We have a range of dog friendly log cabin style lodges in our Lake District retreat which can sleep up to six people and are fully-equipped with all the self-catering facilities you would need to give you that ultimate luxurious home from home feeling. In your accommodation, you’ll also have access to widescreen TV’s, Wi-Fi access and an abundance of entertainment facilities perfect for those cosy nights in.
And if a lodge with a hot tub is what you’re looking for, then at Thanet Well we have plenty to choose from. So not only can you enjoy a getaway with your beloved pooch but you can also relax and unwind in style in the comfort of your own lodge.
In order to maintain the peaceful and tranquil location of Thanet Well the parks on-site facilities are limited, however you can find convenience stores, bars, shops and restaurants just a short drive away and our reception on-site is also home to a small essentials shop.
This countryside resort is surrounded by endless mountains and beautiful landscapes, giving you plenty of opportunity for countless walks, which are not only great for pets to explore but also for the owners to unwind in complete tranquillity. Greystoke Forest is one of the main scenic walking routes around Thanet Well but another must-visit destination is Coniston Water, which is home to the third largest lake in the Lake District and is just a short drive from the resort. If you don’t fancy walking the five mile long route then there are also options for boat hiring for those wanting to take to the water (your fur baby may not be so keen though).
So if you’re looking for a UK break that will provide you with the ideal opportunity to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, then our dog friendly lodges in the Lake District are the perfect choice.
Dog Friendly Lodges with Hot Tubs in the Lake District at Keswick Reach
Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat is a fairly new addition to the Darwin Escapes portfolio. Recently opened in 2017, the Award-Winning park was named Best in Britain at the Hoseasons Awards in 2017 and is already drawing in holiday goers, pet owners and their furry friends from far and wide.
We have a number of dog friendly lodges in the Lake District available for hire here, so make sure if you are intending on bringing your pooch with you on your holiday to add a pet to your booking form to ensure you’re allocated one of our superb pet friendly lodges.
All of our luxurious accommodation options here are fully equipped with all the self-catering facilities you would need such as dishwashers, washing machines and an abundance of cooking utensils, pots and pans. Each lodge is also equipped with a range of entertainment features including flat screen TVs so you can still enjoy the luxuries despite being in the heart of the Cumbrian countryside.
As well as offering pet friendly lodges with hot tubs in the Lake District to help you relax and unwind in the comfort of your own accommodation, Keswick Reach also has a range of on-site facilities that you can also take advantage of. Our first class gymnasium is ideal if you’re looking to keep yourself in shape whilst on holiday or you can book a treatment at our Ammara Spa, where our trained therapists will be able to talk you through a range of treatments suitable for your needs and leave you feeling rejuvenated.
Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat has already gained a great reputation amongst pet owners for its dog friendly lodges and superb pet-friendly facilities on-site such as the dog wash area and the fact that the four legged members of your clan are always welcome into the bar area.
The resort is also perfectly located near to some of the best pet friendly attractions in the region. Derwent Water which is just down the road from our retreat, is home to wonderful scenic walking routes with forested areas and routes running along the lake too. Another must visit is Whinlatter Forest Park which great for family outings with the dog, as it not only offers woodland walks, but also has an adventure playground to keep the children entertained. One thing which is sure to appeal to animal lovers is the Lake District Sheepdog experience in Crosthwaite where you will have the opportunity to herd sheep with a little help from fully trained sheepdogs.
Idyllic Lake District Holidays with Dogs
Here at Darwin Escapes we understand that finding pet friendly accommodation in the Lake District can often be a challenge and that leaving your dog behind is something many pet owners don’t like doing. So we’re hoping with both of our Lake District parks that we can address this problem and offer luxurious pet friendly holidays suitable for the whole family; even the furry ones.
