There's nowhere in the country to compare with the Lake District and now dogs and their owners can enjoy walking across this dramatic landscape with 20 stimulating circular walks chosen and researched specifically for dog walkers. The routes are mainly off-road, with easily passed stiles and avoiding grazing live-stock wherever possible, or warning where you might need to put your dog on a lead. The walks range from 1 mile to an invigorating 8 miles and offer plenty of opportunities to explore the Lake District's soaring fells, stunning lakes, picturesque valleys and forests packed with scent and adventure. There are stunning lakeside walks by Tarn Hows, Elterwater and Rydal Water; scenic woodland walks in Whinlatter and exploring Grizedale Forest with its many trails and sculptures to discover; climbing one of Wainwright's legendary peaks at Dodd Fell; and exploring castles at Kendal and Sizergh. There is also information on warm and welcoming pubs and cafes where you and your dog can stop for refreshments, as well as contact details for the nearest vets.
