About this property

Built in 1866, dog-friendly The Borrowdale Hotel in the Lake District is a four-star hotel nestled at the foot of Shepherds Crag in the pretty Borrowdale valley. It makes the perfect location for a pet-away for you and your canine companion with an abundance of Set in the heart of the Lake District, and with fabulous Lakeland walking on the doorstep, The Borrowdale Hotel offers the perfect escape for you and your dog. After spending a day taking in the natural delights of this stunning location, cosy up in front of the roaring fires with an afternoon tea or a well-earned drink in the bar and lounges while you plan for tomorrow's walk. With open fires, the oak-panelled lounge bar and conservatory are open for light lunches and afternoon teas, with terraces overlooking landscaped gardens, you and your best furry friend will be spoilt for choice and comfort.

Dine with Your Dog

Dine with your dog in the bar or the side lounges that also offer a more informal menu. Or if you wish to leave the dog in the room you can eat in the elegant dining room which offers an exciting selection of dishes, each carefully prepared to make the most of the finest locally-sourced produce – some of which are even smoked at the hotel itself. A delicious lunch menu and luxurious afternoon tea can be enjoyed by you with your pet by your side next to a roaring fire in the lounge.

Bow wow factor

Your dog will love the gated meadow across the road where it can run off the lead. The hotel will even provide towels, as we know some pups like to get mucky now and then.
