Good morning, yes you will have to notify the hotel about your dog. There are plenty of pubs that will welcome your dog. The lakes is a very dog friendly place.

personally no. The hotel is a distance from the nearest station (long walk with cases). public transport - again I'd say not if you've a short time to visit. We travelled around the area and I can only recall 1 bus. It's something I haven't thought about. To make the most of this beautiful area a car is a must. Stopping off to take in the fantastic scenery around every corner.
