About Witherslack

As dog owners ourselves and fosterers for the Retired Greyhounds Trust South Lakes branch we understand the importance of being with your dog at all times.

Being pet friendly it's definitely a ‘Dogs Life' at Beech Hill House so there's no excuse not to holiday without bringing your dog with you. Our bed and breakfast accommodation is totally dog friendly, welcoming both large and small dogs, and providing a dog bed (if required), a towel, a throw for those who refuse to believe that their bed is the one that's on the floor! a water bowl and a 'Goodie' basket with a few essentials and treats in to welcome them, along with spacious rooms to relax in.

Dogs can stay in any room and our luxury room 1 has a private balcony. With table and chairs why not sit and relax with your Greyhound on warm sunny afternoons and evenings. Enjoy a cool refreshing drink or take a stroll down the steps from the balcony into the small private garden by the side of the house. From this garden there is access to the drive for those wanting a slightly longer stroll!

Situated 8 minutes from the M6 J36 just off the A590 at Witherslack in an unspoilt corner of the Lake District National Park we have walks from the front door and with being in the South Lakes, which is a fabulous dog friendly place to holiday there is the entire Lake District and Furness Peninsulas to explore along with the Yorkshire Dales and even North Lancashire with all their associated mountains, hills, fells and beaches.

There are also a number of pubs in the area where you can take your dog. Our village pub, the Derby Arms is just 50 yards along the road, serves good food and welcomes dogs - ours can often be seen asleep in front of one of the log fires!

Dogs are most welcome to stay with their owners in the bedrooms for a small charge. Please let us know the size of your dog(s) when you book a room with us so we can provide the appropriate size bed(s) if you require any. Because of possible separation anxiety of being somewhere strange, all we ask is they are not left on their own in the room at any time.

Dogs may be walked along one of the three roads nearby, which includes the 'old road'. The 'old road' runs alongside the Derby Arms Pub and used to be the main road prior to the A590 being built and is now a dead end so makes an ideal walk for pet owners. Part way down the 'old road' just past the large layby on the right there is the Latterbarrow Nature Reserve, which is a safe area for walking your dog as it is fenced to keep the deer out.

Places to visit in this area with your dogs

Since July 2004 we have fostered over 150 Greyhounds and are known as the 'South Lakes' branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust (RGT). Bed and breakfast at Beech Hill House has been specially designed to accommodate our guests with their dogs along with our Greyhounds.

In addition to fostering Jenny has written a 71 page book entitled 'Caring for my Rescued Greyhound' (£10.00 plus p & p) which contains useful information about dog behaviour, dog psychology and training dogs in general but she steers it towards the Greyhound. Purchase 'Caring for my Rescued Greyhound'.
Come and say hello to our Greyhounds - Indi (11), Sandy (9) and Solo (6) along with our present foster dogs who we are looking after until they find their forever homes.

Please Note:  As dog owners ourselves we appreciate the importance of being with your dog. However, we ask that dogs are not left on their own in the bedrooms at any time should separation anxiety arise and they become distressed. Unfortunately, should your dog cause damage we will unfortunately require payment to repair or replace the damage caused. Dogs are not allowed in the main garden as this is private and for the use of our greyhounds, some of whom are new foster dogs. Dogs should also be kept under control at all times, and they should also be kept on a lead and under control in the hallway and conservatory.
