About this property

Providing the perfect complement to the stunning Melmerby Hall, the dog-friendly Stag Cottage is a splendid locale with charm to spare. You can book the cottage in conjunction with Melmerby Hall or on its own for a relaxing getaway - separated from the cottage by a large, lockable oak door, you’ll have plenty of privacy. Sleeping six across three en-suite bedrooms, families and groups of friends are guaranteed a comfortable stay. Complete with exposed wooden beams, log-burning fire, and ornate furnishings, the charmingly-traditional decor is a real treat, and there are plenty of modern facilities to indulge in as well, including a fully-equipped kitchen. Four-legged guests will feel right at home and can make use of the private garden, but the real highlight has to be the wonderful location. Nestled at the foot of the Pennines, you’ll have endless opportunities for relaxing walks right on your doorstep. Scale Cross Fell with your canine companion in tow for majestic views or head to High Cup Nick for a serene stroll. Alongside the picture-perfect Pennines, the stunning Lake District is less than half an hour away, providing endless opportunities for fun-filled family days out and picturesque walks.

Dine with Your Dog

The handmade, fully-fitted oak kitchen provides everything you’ll need to craft delicious meals. You’ll have all of the essentials, including a SMEG range, microwave, fridge freezer, and more. You’ll also have a barbecue at your disposal - ideal for summer months. Enjoy your meals at the breakfast table, in the dining room, or out on the terrace, where you can drink in the sunshine while Fido roams the garden. And to top it off, you’ll receive a delightful welcome hamper chock-full of goodies and breakfast items to enjoy, including organic eggs, fresh bread, homemade jam, fruit, cafetière coffee, wine, and plenty more!

Bow wow factor

Dogs will adore the Pennines, which provide marvelous views and superb walking routes, and they’ll love the nearby Lake District, perfect for relaxing walks.

Bedrooms & Suites

Stag Cottage sleeps six across three spacious en-suite bedrooms. Each room features unique decor and furnishings, but all retain the cottage’s rustic aesthetic. Although all three rooms guarantee a comfortable stay, the Master bedroom is a real treat, featuring a gorgeous, ornate oak bed. Open and spacious, dogs will have plenty of room to stretch their legs, and they’ll love exploring the enclosed garden. Complemented by a large dining room, you’ll have a handmade oak kitchen, as well as a sizable lounge area. With its open fire, deep leather sofas, and exposed wooden beams, the lounge is the perfect place to spend a peaceful evening. There are plenty of creature comforts to indulge in as well, including complimentary Wi-Fi, a flatscreen television, barbecue, and more. Separated from Melmerby Hall by a large, lockable door, large groups can book the two properties, or you can book Stag Cottage separately for a relaxing getaway.

Dog-Friendly Nearby

Stag Cottage’s great location provides easy access to some fantastic sights. Nestled at the foot of the Pennines, you can scale Cross Fell with your canine companion for unparalleled views, or head to High Cup Nick for a leisurely picnic. The stunning Lake District is less than 30 minutes as well, giving you plenty of options for scenic strolls. Hop over to the shores of Ullswater and follow the ‘Ullswater Way’, a peaceful walking route, or climb aboard a famous steamer and cruise across the lake. History buffs can revel in the grandeur of Lowther Castle and will love the bustling gardens. Lowther also features a huge castle-themed playground for children and big kids to enjoy, making it an ideal spot for family days out. After a day of adventure, return to Melmerby and enjoy a home-cooked meal in The Shepherds Inn, a delightful dog-friendly pub that’s right around the corner.
