About Our Cosy Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage near Kendal, in the Lake District

Built in 2012, in a perfect location to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Joiner’s Mews is a lovely, comfortable holiday cottage for three guests, in a double or twin room and one single, all on one floor. Well behaved dogs are welcome, the area surrounding the cottage is secure – once the gates are closed – so your dog will be safe.

To help you have an enjoyable Lake District holiday, we provide all you will need to ensure your stay is as memorable as possible.

The holiday cottage has unlimited Wi-Fi provided throughout the accommodation. The combined sitting and dining room has a log burner for cosy evenings in, watching a film or DVD on the 39-inch Smart TV which is Netflix enabled.

The kitchen has a breakfast bar for three people. There is an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. You’ll find all the pans, crockery and equipment you need if you wish to cater for yourselves. We don’t believe that our guests should have to shop for dishwasher or washing machine liquid while on holiday so we will provide enough of both for your stay.

The cottage is located a two-minute walk from the Heversham Hotel, which we can recommend for a reasonably priced pint and a bar meal.

The village of Milnthorpe is just five minutes away by car, there is a Booths store (known as the Waitrose of the north), a Spar and petrol station, newsagents, independent butchers, chemist, post office, vet, two pubs, numerous takeaways and a day time and evening restaurant. There is a small market in the village square every Friday.

Bringing your dog on holiday to the Lake District

The Lake District is the ideal doggy holiday destination! The Lake District offers an abundance of walks to take in the beautiful scenery, and with so much space to run around, your dog will have a great time. As a holiday destination you will also find that in towns such as Cartmel, Grasmere, Keswick and Ambleside dogs are welcome in many shops, cafes and some pubs. You are welcome to bring one well behaved dog. There will be an extra charge of £20

Peter has mapped out some local walks in the immediate area and has collected some from other parts of the Lake District, these can be found in a folder in the cottage.
