Retreats & Hideaways - Luxury Self Catering the Lake District

Dog Friendly Properties

At Retreats and Hideaways, we understand that your four-legged friends are part of the family. Not only this, but there is no better place to be a dog than in the Lake District! 

We offer a stunning selection of homes that are well equipped for your dogs as well as providing all the luxuries you would expect from an R&H holiday. 

New Stickle Cottage

If you fancy getting lost deep in the heart of the fells, escaping the hustle and bustle of the working week, and embracing the true nature of Lake District holiday, look no further than New Stickle Cottage. Located in the Langdale Valley, an isolated hamlet, heavy in Lakeland charm, rugged landscapes and Herdwicks around every corner. 

This property is a dream come true for any adventurous dog, with endless options for hikes, strolls, runs, and even swimming. Outside there is an extensive garden that backs onto the hillside, with ample space for activities. The internal space is beautifully finished, with stylish furnishing and cosiness at the heart of its design. After a long day exploring, your little companion can curl up by the log burning stove and dream about the next day’s adventures. The best feature of this property is the outdoor dog shower – so mucky paws will never be a problem!

Beech Rock

Who says dogs can’t appreciate a little luxury? And, Beech Rock has it in swathes. Situated above Bowness, nestled amongst the treetops, this property is a slice of heaven, for humans and dogs alike. Just a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere, and footpaths leading straight to Brantfell, there’s plenty to keep your furry friend busy. Whilst you’re relaxing in the hot tub on a warm summers evening, the rolling lawn provides a perfect playground for a game of fetch or a snooze in the sun. The open-plan living area also offers the perfect opportunity for any pooch to enjoy the toasty warmth of the wood burning stove, whilst also keeping an eye on any food action in the kitchen.


The sister property of the stunning Beech Rock, this imposing home offers an incredible opportunity for the whole family to enjoy a Lake District escape. Sleeping up to ten guests, we can guarantee your pups won’t miss out! Located in the heart of Windermere, set back behind tall hedges, this large, enclosed garden is a dream come true for any dog owner. With a large flat lawn, herbaceous borders for shade and stunning patio for basking in the sunshine, your little pal will be spoilt for choice. Indoors, the large home offers two living spaces, both equipped with cosy fires. The kitchen is large and floored in stone, perfect for keeping paws cool. 

Helm View

The village of Grasmere is a paradise for humans and dogs alike. Teaming with wildlife, walks, streams, fellsides and lots of cafes for coffees (and sausages!) With breath-taking views across the mountainous landscape and an abundance of walks for all abilities, Grasmere provides something for everyone. And there’s no missing out for the dogs either. The gorgeous country garden provides a lawn for ball games, a patio for relaxing and even a little river to cool off in. Inside, the property has a spacious living/kitchen area so there’s never any missing out. At the end of a busy day exploring, shed the lead and collar and relax in front of the wood burning stove. It really is a dog’s life!
