Dogs are permitted on the ferries as long as they’re kept on leads. Windermere is over ten miles long. It has various settlements, boating and activity centres along its length and is admirably suited to holidays accompanied by dogs.

One of the Cumbrian lakes is a real star when it comes to walks with dogs. Lake Coniston despite being smaller is great for people visiting on holiday with their dogs. The shores of the lake are sandy, there is a bit of beach at one end and paths that lead over a wooden bridge to fields and the village.

People come to exercise their dogs and allow their pets to splash about in the shallow waters at the edges of the lake.
Picnic tables are set by the edge of the lake where it is nice to sit and eat lunch.
