Cormorant at Mockerkin TarnFor a cottage allowing dogs look no further than Jenkinson’s Place. This superb dog friendly luxury cottage has lake views to die for and beautiful accommodation to match. Jenkinson’s Place is at the head of a lovely walk through ancient woods to Loweswater village and the welcoming Kirkstile Inn. The beer garden at the Kirkstile is the perfect place to marvel at Mellbreak. This magnificent fell is a great walk from Loweswater with fantastic views. It is not too high or too arduous making it ideal for this time of year when they nights are starting to draw in. It can easily be climbed in a day and you can enjoy a namesake pint in the Kirkstile afterwards.

Loweswater and fells
There are plenty of great walks by the lake in Loweswater. The area is a red squirrel strong hold and you will often see them scampering through the trees and the undergrowth around the lake. There is a high path above the trees to take in the beautiful view or several trails in the woods where you can watch the birds and squirrels.
