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.
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!
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.
