Hello all
In June I will be going from Norfolk to the wear coast of Scotland for a holiday. Itís a bit of a drive so we are looking to stop somewhere near Carlisle on the way up and possibly Edinburgh on the way back. Are there any recommendations for nice dog friendly places to stay in those areas? Thanks in advance!

We have stayed a number of times at the Westmoreland Hotel at Tebay Services on the M6, but not recently as we don't travel so much nowadays.  It is a lovely location even though just off the motorway. Food has always been very good and rooms comfortable.  There is now a charge of £10 per pet per night - dogs and cats were free when we first started to stay!  Be aware there is a duck pond at the services and a water feature around the hotel dining room which can be rather too attractive to some spaniels......

Coming south on the east side, Callander is about one hour from Edinburgh and nice town with good walks by the river. lapaich lives in the area and although he has not been on the forum for a while, I'm sure if you give him a PM he will reply.  Alternatively, LMB travelled south on the east side in October so you might get some suggestions there.

Ah, how wonderful for you to travel up there !  We so much treasure the memories of our unforgettable UK trip in October -  England, Scotland Mainland, then Isle of Skye (LMB's cradle), Isles of Harris and Lewis.
On the entire trip we had absolutely no problems with LMB in the hotels. She was always welcome.

As Enid said, we spent the first night in the UK at the Westmoreland Hotel at Tebay Services on the M6, the place we had stayed at almost five years earlier when we got our puppy from Skye. The big hotel is indeed very convenient as it is next to the motorway and yet it is quiet and there is a restaurant and the next day it is easy to drive up to Bonnie Scotland.  Tebay is definitely our choice for the "night on the road" when driving up North - hopefully again soon. For fun: they have just sent us an email inviting us back and telling us that they now have new beds and mattrasses in all their rooms   he he

If you are interested in other places we stayed at, you may want to look at our post of 28 Oct 2017 in which we named some of these hotels.
Happy New Year and look forward to a great trip !

Thanks all! I will look into them and get something booked. We usually go to Scotland once every couple of years as my Mum is Scottish, but the drive from Norfolk is a bit daunting with Alf being the restless spaniel he is!

Let us know what you book & how you get on as it helps when others find dog friendly places Grin
