Lake District

Thorpinsty Barn, Lake District

Emerald green hills, crystal blue waters, gorgeous towns and villages, a plethora of marked-out walks; it’s no wonder so many people choose a holiday in the Lake District with so much on offer to suit everyone’s tastes. There is something for all ages too, whether you’re a family that needs attractions to keep little ones busy, a group of adrenaline junkies, or exploring the captivating landscape solo, just you and your pooch.

The famous Lake Windermere will look like one giant drinking bowl to your four-legged friend, whilst Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, is just begging to be climbed by intrepid explorers. There’s also plenty of tranquillity to be found though, as author Beatrix Potter can testify, having lived and written the famous Tales of Peter Rabbit in the Lakes.

With fabulous properties throughout the Lake District, humans and hounds alike are guaranteed a glorious stay, no matter what the season. Many cottages boast log fires and wood burners, perfect for your pooch to curl up in front of after a day of discovery, or if it’s a grand celebration that needs an equally grand property, Thorphinsty Barn is hard to beat.
