Lake District Bike/Dog Holiday - Quality Places To Stay?

The wife and I are planning a trip up to the Lake District in May and would like to take the dog we got a few months ago so she can take him on long 'windy walks' (by herself) and I can tool off on my road bike and hopefully tackle some of the climbs in the area :)

Specifically, I'd like to stay around the Buttermere area and was wondering if anyone had any advice of a good quality/luxury cottage or similar that welcomes pets? We don't have kids so something small is fine and preferably not a park or similar which would likely be full of other peoples kids!

All input greatly appreciated :)

Thanks, Gary.


  • Hi Gary,
    My parents have a self catering cottage in Ambleside. I've used it many times for bike trips, it has a cellar suitable for bikes. I think there are a couple of available weeks in May, I shall be up there myself for the Fred on the 13th.
