Dog-friendly Lake District Holiday Park in Award Finals

A dog-friendly Lake District holiday park has romped into the finals with the Rex Factor. Lake District Estates, which puts pooches on a pedestal has been nominated for four top honours in the Dog Friendly Awards 2023. The holiday park, has earned its place in the finals by demonstrating that it operates some of the most dog-friendly holiday parks in Britain.

Their facilities include a complimentary doggy gift pack on arrival, a supplied dog bed, wooden dog door gates, and guides to nearby dog-friendly walking trails and places to visit.

Now the parks group must wait until the end of November this year to see if their parks have triumphed in the awards which are decided by a public vote.

The glittering awards ceremony will take place at the Kennel Club headquarters in London.

Glittering Awards for Dog-friendly Lake District holiday parks

Hoping to romp home in the awards is Woodclose Park in Kirkby Lonsdale with its dog-welcoming glamping facilities and a dedicated “dog park” for lead-free exercising.

Also in the running is Hill of Oaks Caravan and Lodge Park on the shores of Windermere which provides a range of luxury properties accepting four-legged friends.

Further north in Cumbria and also with picture-perfect lake views is Waterfoot Park on Ullswater near Pooley Bridge which also promises to get tails wagging.

Finally, Tewitfield Marina near Carnforth aims to take the lead with its selection of self-catering apartments and stone-built cottages, all boasting the Rex Factor.
