The Lakedistrict


The Nuthatch is conveniently located for adventures and exploring the Lake District with your dogs by foot, cycle, car or public transport.  Positioned in the quieter, relaxing and more peaceful Northern area of the Lake District National Park and UNESCO World Heritage site, The Nuthacth is an ideal base for an amazing holiday.   There is a huge variety of easy to challenging walks that take in the magnificent and breathtaking views.  The town of Keswick is less than 10 minutes away and has a range of attractions, parks, galleries, individual shops, cafés, pubs, restaurants, markets and events.  More and more facilities are beginning to be dog friendly and with thanks to the local pet shop ‘Podgy Paws’ there is a list of ‘dog friendly’ pubs and cafes in the Welcome Folder in The Nuthatch.


The availability of my dog-friendly cottage is shown below. Simply use the Left & Right arrows to move through the months. Please note I do charge an £80 Returnable Damage/Responsible Dog Owner Deposit to cover cleaning beyond the usual, damage or breakages of smaller items.  This is returnable 10 days after your departure date. I’m pleased to say that there is still no extra charge per dog per night and they are more than welcome.  If you have any enqueries at all then, please, do not hesitate to contact me – details on the Contact page.
