The Lake District has been named the most dog-friendly place in the United Kingdom, and dogs aren’t just welcome here they’re loved. With so many great places to walk your four legged friends we thought we would share a few of our favourites.

Grizedale Forest Grizedale Forest Park - set in the heart of the Lake District, is a wonderful place to walk your four-legged friend. There are 8 different marked routes to enjoy; ranging from a suitable for all 1 miler through to the Silurian Way, a strenuous 5hr walk. Grizedale is most famous for its many sculptures that can be found dotted throughout the forest.


Cartmel Fell This circular route is just over 3 miles long, enjoy the open hillside, woodland and two endearing tarns.



A trip to the Lake District would not be complete without walking the circumference of the region’s most picturesque lake.



The lake is the second largest body of water in the Lake District, and some say the most scenic.


Scout Scar Enjoy one of the best views across the entire southern lakes, Scout Scar offers an incredible panorama views. There is a popular circular walk (1.5 miles). For those that want to head a little further afield the walk can be easily extended.


If you have your own favourites we would love to hear about them, share your adventures with us for the chance to be featured on our website.

Please remember much of the land in the Lake District is used for grazing and farming, so when walking in open spaces please be aware of livestock and that dogs need to kept under control.
