Mac, Cam and I love to let our two and four legged friends know of any dog friendly developments in Cumbria and the Lake District. Funny how these so often (all the time) focus on holidays and places to eat and drink…..

But in our eyes, we love places to go that are dog friendly and that satisfy the needs of man and mutt. Wainwright’s Inn owner and run by the Langdale Estate have refurbished something we all love and especially at this of the year, the range. This original range is the thing of beauty and does of course provide the open fire vessel for the pub. Country pub, hearty food, real ale, location perfect after a long fell walk with the dogs, dog friendly, PERFECTION!

Collies love the outdoors but are extremely partial to a real fire.

Just like around the treat drawer or tin, dogs flock to lie in front of an open fire, just see Buzz the Collie in the picture above mesmerized by it. They may have run at 100 miles and hour for the whole 8 mile walk which no doubt meant they covered at least 3 times that distance but that doesn’t mean a bit of warmth is not in order.

If you’re not familiar with the Langdale Valley then its a haven for walkers, low and high level, picturesque and arguably the best best views of any location in the Lake District. Wainwright’s Inn is a proper pub with Cumbrian real ales and a menu full of Cumbrian produce. Wainwright’s famous lamb shoulder speaks for itself, no need to look any further.
