Hotels can be notoriously difficult when it comes to our favourite four-legged friends, but not all.

It's universally known that we Brits love our pets and like to involve them in everything - including our holidays.

For example, if you're venturing on holiday to the Lake District then it's just downright cruel not to let them tag along and enjoy the weekend. For it is positively a dog's dream.

Thankfully, there's a whole host of dog-friendly hotels in the UK that cater for pampered pooches and one in Cumbria has been highlighted among the very best.

For a small extra charge, you can take your four-legged friend on a country escape or coastal retreat, and they'll be provided with plenty of treats, from dog beds and bowls to personalised gift bags and special pet menus.

The Forest Side, Grasmere, Lake District

Good Housekeeping had this to say: "Everything's a little bit spellbinding at the Forest Side, from the magical location in the Lake District landscape to the fairytale-worthy Gothic mansion.

"And the best bit? Your canine companion doesn't have to miss out on the magic, as this dog-friendly hotel has a warm welcome for four-legged friends.
