About this property

Located on the shores of Coniston Water with sensational lake and fell views, the dog-friendly Coniston Inn, part of the Inn Collection Group, is the perfect base for you and your pet to explore the Lake District National Park. Set against the backdrop of rugged fells, this pet-friendly classic Lakeland slate building has recently undergone a full refurbishment and offers a stunning location to stay in the Lakes.

Steeped in over 100 years of rich history, The Coniston Inn once welcomed well-known figures, including Victorian artist John Ruskin. Many of Ruskin’s visitors, including Charles Darwin, would stay as guests at the hotel! Coniston village served as the retreat for poet Alfred Tennyson’s honeymoon and provided the backdrop for Arthur Ransome's book series 'Swallows and Amazons,' adding a touch of literary magic for any bookworms.

No dog-friendly holiday is complete without a pub, and The Coniston Inn has its very own!  Your dog is welcome to lie by your side in the cosy bar or on the terrace for alfresco dining. The pub has been serving up quality drinks to guests for over a century. You'll be sure to feel the history as you enjoy a cold pint of hand-pulled beer, local ale or cider, or an aromatic barista coffee.

What your dog can expect at this dog-friendly hotel

Your four-legged friend will struggle to find a warmer welcome than The Coniston Inn. One of the best dog-friendly hotels in the area, your canine companion will be allowed everywhere in the hotel, living like a truly pampered pooch. A mini tub of doggie ‘bedtime bones’ will be in the dog-friendly room on arrival and there is also a Sir Woofchester’s dog menu for four-legged friends, so your dog can indulge in culinary luxury at the same time as you!

The local area

A paradise for four-pawed travellers, The Coniston Inn is surrounded by natural beauty and truly magnificent walks around the private grounds and among the surrounding fells. The Coniston Inn is a popular base for avid walkers and climbers scaling one of the largest fells in the Lake District, The Old Man of Coniston, providing breathtaking views of the landscape from the top. This walk is dog-friendly and is a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon before relaxing back at the inn, just a convenient 7-minute drive from the base of the fell!

Another great activity that welcomes dogs is embarking on a dog-friendly Coniston Launch lake cruise, just a 5-minute drive away, where you can explore the water with your furry friend. You can even go on a themed ‘Swallows and Amazons’ cruise, or explore the gardens of Brantwood, John Ruskin’s historical home.

Dine with Your Dog

You are welcome to bring your dog with you to the inn’s cosy bar area of the restaurant, which offers the same top-quality menu. Alternatively, opt for the dog-friendly terrace in the warmer months where you can soak up the fresh air as you enjoy a cold local ale.  You can also enjoy a full Cumbrian breakfast, light bites, or more hearty meals for dinner. The Sunday Carvery is unmissable, serving generous helpings of hand-carved meats with all the trimmings.

Bow wow factor

This is one of the best dog-friendly hotels for walks, surrounded by fells! And for the more adventurous furry friends, the hike to the Old Man Coniston will give you magnificent views.

Dog-Friendly Nearby

The Inn features fabulous views of the Old Man of Coniston so we recommend you hike up this fell! This can be a circular route of approximately seven miles. From the summit, there are excellent panoramic views of surrounding hills and fells including Black Combe around the Pennines taking in the Scarfell group to the North. You will then go on to explore Dog Crag, Buck Pike, and Brown Pike on your descent back to Coniston. Or both you and your canine companion could walk around the Lake which is a 16-mile circuit or just walk part of the way along the Cumbria Way! Visit the dog-friendly Bluebird Cafe with views onto the lake.
