Allan Bank is dog friendly

Two people walking a dog at Allan Bank in Grasmere

We know that there is no better companion for a walk than your dog and the Lake District is the perfect place to explore, on four legs or two. Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome at Allan Bank, inside or out, even muddy ones.

Our woodland grounds are great for dog-walking and dogs are also allowed anywhere in the house, so everyone in your party can relax and have a lovely time. 

Some handy hints and tips for a hassle-free dog walk in the area

  • Don't let your dog chase wildlife or farm animals
  • Keep your dog on a lead
  • Watch out for local notices. There may be restrictions in woodland or farmland at sensitive times of year, such as during lambing season
  • Please always pick up after your dog
