An award-winning hotel and spa in the Lake District has officially launched a haven dedicated to dogs.

Armathwaite Hall has launched a new ‘Doggy Zen Zone’, a haven dedicated to spoiling our furry friends.

In partnership with PetsPyjamas, the UK’s No.1 dog-friendly travel experts and Adaptil, a market-leading brand in dog wellbeing, Armathwaite Hall has expanded its offering to become a fully fledged Woof-Wellbeing Retreat, promising a serene and enjoyable stay for both pets and their human companions.

The hotel’s dog-friendly rooms are equipped with a PetsPyjamas wellbeing guide filled with helpful tips and a curated dog-soothing spotify playlist to lull pups into relaxation. Every VIP (Very Important Pooch) room is situated on the ground floor, providing direct access to patio areas and gardens where even the most spirited pups can stretch their legs and play to their heart's content.

Adventurous owners who are keen on exploring the spectacular mountains and fells of the Lake District with their dogs can arrange a guided walk with the hotels expert mountain guide to safely navigate the fells together.

Pups don’t have to miss out on the fine dining experience at Armathwaite Hall either, as the hotel’s A La Canine menu, which has been devised by the hotel’s head chef, is curated especially for dogs’ dietary needs and is freshly prepared onsite using the finest local ingredients.

Making the most of time together, well-behaved dogs are welcome to join their humans in the Hall Lounge from 10am-7pm daily, creating opportunities for both canine and human guests to unwind and socialise.

Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa’s owner Carolyn Graves, said: “We're committed to offering more than just a dog-friendly environment at our hotel; we aim to give our four-legged guests an authentic experience while maintaining our luxurious standards.

"We recognise that our canine companions are cherished family members. Understanding the challenge of finding a hotel that combines pet-friendliness with luxury, we strive to deliver this exceptional experience for both Pet Parents and their dogs."

Dogs cost £25 per night, while guided walks with a mountain expert area available for £75 per hour.
