Bring your dog to England’s largest national park, the Lake District, for a glamping break that’ll take you up hill and down dale – with more shimmering water to dip tired paws (and feet) in than you can shake a walking stick at. The wild, radiant beauty of the landscape will get tails wagging and spirits soaring – there’s a reason so many poets and painters have been inspired by the rugged fells and epic lakes. Take a look at our dog-friendly glamping places in the Lake District.
We don’t just list dog-friendly glamping places, we personally visit each one, stay overnight and get to know the owners. So when we recommend cabins, barns, bothies and huts for you and your pup, you can rest assured that we’ve tested the beds for comfort, taken our own dogs on local walks and tucked into a cheeky Cumberland sausage and local ale around the campfire. Once you and your pup have experienced a life more wild among the lofty peaks, you’ll want to come back again and again.
Stay in the heart of the wild at one of our glamping spaces in the Lakes and you’ll have easy access to some of the most beautiful spots for adventuring. Take a look at some of the great activities you can get up to with your faithful friend.

Who we are Canopy & Stars are an employee-owned, certified B Corp based in Bristol. We’ve been exploring woodlands, hiking up hills and navigating coastal paths for more than a decade to bring you incredible glamping holidays in areas of spectacular natural beauty. We promote responsible travel and have a charitable trust that donates to environmental causes.
Our dog-friendly glamping breaks in the Lake District We’ve got barns and bothies, cabins and yurts and a smorgasbord of shepherd’s huts (all those Cumbrian sheep) for a dog-friendly glamping break in the Lakes. If you’re looking for something extra special, check out Hansel and Gretel at Hinterlandes, two off-grid luxury cabins in the trees with top of the range wood-fired hot tubs, and not a wicked witch in sight.
What to do with your dog in the Lake District Forget strolls in suburban parks and trots round the block, the Lake District is somewhere to show your pup how to do walkies in style. Set off from the front door on invigorating hikes with glorious views, stopping for lunch and dog treats by sparkling tarns. The sheer scale of the landscape is majestic and the overwhelming sense of peace will rub off the most excitable hounds. Dogs are welcomed at many pubs and restaurants in the picturesque towns and villages dotted throughout the national park.
