There’s never a bad time to walk your dog to or from a pub, however Autumn is definitely our favourite. The season of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ holds the promise of crisp conditions and the added interest of leaf piles for inquisitive hounds.

If you are one of the people visiting the areas surrounding Troutbeck who are looking for dog friendly walks, or better still a dog friendly Hotel with nearby walks, then look no further than Queens Head Hotel. Use us as a welcoming base from which to get into the great outdoors, enjoy some fresh air and start or finish your walk with a pint or a meal from our excellent selection of menus.

Walking your dog in English Lakes

Given our position in the heart of the English Lake District we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to dog friendly walks. Although, if you’re going to go onto the fells, please do make sure you follow our basic advice below.  If you’d like a more relaxing stroll then why not try out the National Trust’s ‘Townend & Troutbeck Valley’ walk, which starts just down the valley in Town End and takes a circular route between the village and Lake Windemere at Ecclerig.

If any of that sounds tempting, then why not have a think about visiting us.

Seasonal dog walking tips

Whenever you are planning to walk, there are a few tips you should follow to make sure every adventure is a happy one. On shorter, darker days; Invest in some high viz for you and your dog and carry a dedicated torch.

When the days eventually get brighter and warmer, replace the high viz and torch with sunscreen and water (for you and the dog). Then, whenever you go remember that having a charged phone is a modern day essential, as is keeping your pooch on a lead, especially in open countryside.

Enjoy the walk and we’ll look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.
