Dog-friendly cottage, Keswick

Rose Cottage belongs to the Peel family, and we are a family of dog lovers.

We understand that dogs are important members of the family, and that you will surely want to bring your dogs with you on a walking holiday. We make all your dogs very welcome. We make no extra charges for them.

When my parents retired to Rose Cottage from the farm they brought all their dogs with them. Latterly they kept two inquisitive Lakeland Terriers, and had Rose Cottage fenced to keep them in. Although the responsibility for the security of your pets remains with you (and from my experience a very determined dog can escape from just about anywhere!) we do take the trouble to check the fence line regularly with the security of your pets in mind.

There are great dog walks up into the Dodd woods leading directly from the cottage garden. Straight to the very top of Skiddaw without a dog lead!

The layout of Rose cottage is also good for dog holidays. The back kitchen is tiled and warm. It is a good place for dogs to dry off and take meals. The log burning stove is a big hit.
