The expansive natural surroundings of the Lake District are what makes it such a perfect place to take four legged friends on holiday. Meanwhile, a steady supply of dog biscuits make it stand out for its dog friendly hotels. From roaming Beatrix Potter scenery and returning to dine by wood burning stoves with fido at your feet, to the hotels that supply dog bowls and beds, in the Lake District hospitality means giving pets as much of a warm welcome as their owners. Surrounded by one of the UK's largest National Parks with mountains, lakes and thriving communities, the Lake District remains one of the country's most popular places to escape. In no small part that's because of the exemplary hospitality at its hotels. Farmhouse hotels surrounded by acres of woodland, to B&Bs where rooms have private terraces, you might even find a retreat where there's a doggie dinner or breakfast in store. On occasion a furry host may also be there to greet your dog on arrival and show them around the grounds!
