English Lakes is proud of it’s pets welcome policy and guests have been bringing their pets to our hotels in the Lake District and Lancashire for many years. Today we have received a special guest blog from a four legged friend, Max who recently visited The Wild Boar…
Me! Max the Dog
I was so excited to be going on my first holiday, as only being six months old I had only ever slept in my bed at home, so to be going away and sleeping somewhere else, what an adventure!
We arrived at The Wild Boar in the lovely sunshine (my favourite type of weather as I find that the rain spoils my beautiful curly ears) and at Reception all the staff made a fuss of me and said how cute I was, which of course is the truth but I never get tired of hearing it! We were shown to our room by Adam, and it was a doggy dream! There was plenty of room for my bed on the floor, and even French windows leading straight outside so I could be let out quickly when there was a call of nature and didn’t have to cross my paws at all!

On Twitter we follow the adventures of @CumbrianBlondie (A.K.A Gina) who was attempting to complete her list of 40 new things at the age of 40.

As part of our recent Showcase event at Low Wood Bay it was a pleasure to welcome Jan Walker, PA to Kevin Roberts, Saatchi & Saatchi. It sounds as though our invitation arrived at exactly the right time …
After a crazy five weeks of working flat out and living in cramped temporary accommodation whilst our house is being renovated, my husband Alex and I, didn’t take us long to realise how much we craved some very special relaxation!
We’re not a million miles from the Lakes, so frequently use the main road through Ambleside to get to Grasmere and beyond, though I can never recall seeing the exact same vista twice as you hit the views from Low Wood Bay! On approach, it’s difficult not to let your lower jaw drop open to the amazing colour and the light reflecting the mood of the lake with the backdrop of the fells. Already the feeling of ‘calm’ is beginning to kick in and I’ve only just arrived in the hotel car park!
