A very comfortable house, with a warm welcome and excellent breakfast. Also an outstandingly efficient drying room, which we really appreciated.
Lots of homemade jams available for sale - shame we couldn’t carry any extra weight!
We walked from Grasmere to Patterdale via Hellvelyn (quite an experience) and arrived at the Old Water View Inn in the late afternoon. Ian, the then-proprietor, was greeting people for his final night owning the place. He greeted us, asked us about our walk, provided...More
Stopped over on 30/9/17 for one night, after a very wet walk at Haweswater. From the minute we arrived, the hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. This is a little gem for walkers. Drying room, great rooms with very comfortable beds, bar, packed lunches available,...More
Iain was an excellent host, who was super friendly and helpful and a font of information about the C 2 C walk. Though we understand he is no longer the landlord, the hotel itself was comfortable, clean and breakfast was fine. Its a short walk...More

I would strongly recommend your ring/e-mail Dave the new owner of the OWV with your question. I can never remember seeing any dogs in the times I have stayed at the OWV but Dave might have a different policy than the previous owner. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Sorry - but not having dogs, I don't know the answer to that. I certainly didn't see any there. Having said that, the owner at the time (June 2017) was about to conclude a sale of the property and emigrate to the USA, so the new owner might have a different policy anyway. Suggest you contact them directly and ask the question. The number was 01768 482175 in June, but could also have changed. Hope that helps.
