Maple Bank Guest House Welcomes Canine Guests With Tara’s Treats

Maple Bank, a magnificent, detached Edwardian house set in an acre of beautiful gardens near to the town of Keswick is set to welcome it's four-legged guests with their own box of goodies: Tara’s Treats. Each box contains a small bottle of dog shampoo, a roll of bio-degradable pooh-bags, a BedTime Bone, a funky little bow tie and a Maple Bank Holiday Dog-tag.

The BedTime Bone - from Lakeland Pet Treats - is additive-free, preservative-free, gluten-free and dairy-free, made with 100% natural ingredients and 100% love. The Maple Bank Holiday Dog-tag can be clipped on to each dog’s collar for the duration of the stay. The tag says, “I’m on holiday at Maple Bank Guest House”, and includes both the House’s phone numbers, just in case our furry friends run off. The tea-tree and aloe vera dog shampoo is gentle on the most sensitive of skins whilst being extremely successful in getting rid of all unwanted muck. The biodegradable pooh-bags come in a handy roll, which fit easily into a trouser or coat pocket. Finally, the bow tie is a bit of holiday fun.

“A happy dog means happy guests and to many of us, our dogs are our furry-family-members”, says Kate O’Donovan, owner of Maple Bank Guest House and affectionately known as the Sausage Lady. “We pride ourselves on being dog-welcoming, not just dog-friendly. ‘Tara’s Treats’ was inspired by my own wee Tara, our resident Border Terrier. There’s a big box of dog-towels and doggy-dressing gowns by the front door and all our rooms have washable bedspreads and throws when our four-legged guests check-in.”

Right in the heart of the Lake District National Park and close to all its many visitor sites, this stunning bed-and-breakfast is ideally placed for walking, climbing, cycling and water sports, as well as visiting the many excellent attractions for visitors to Cumbria. Maple Bank prides itself on making their guests feel as if they are home-from-home, with a few little extras added along the way, which includes looking after its four-legged guests. Cumbria is renowned for being particularly dog-friendly, and Keswick - 2.6 miles away – has plenty of dog-friendly restaurants, cafes, and shops.
