Award-winning licensed Grasmere B&B overlooking Rydal Water. Once the home of William Wordsworth. Delicious breakfasts and luxurious en-suite bedrooms. Tranquil floral gardens.
Few properties here in the beautiful Lake District are so linked with its beauty, culture and history as White Moss House B&B by the edge of Rydal Water. Our guest house stands between Windermere and Grasmere in the heart of the Lake District, and was once owned by poet William Wordsworth whose best-known poem 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud', also known as 'Daffodils', describes the beauty of the region. Wordsworth bought White Moss house for his son in 1827, and it was the home of his family for over a century. Now, we provide a warm welcome to guests looking to enjoy the inspirational beauty of the area, a short drive from Ambleside, just a mile from Grasmere Village and close to the Lake District's most beautiful fells including Fairfield, Loughrigg and Silver Howe.
White Moss House is a licensed B&B complete with a beautiful floral terrace on which to enjoy drinks from our well-stocked bar. The Wordsworth Lounge houses a cosy wood-burning fire, sofas, magazines, games and books as well as a baby grand piano, and we have five guest bedrooms all with en-suite facilities and top-of-the-range luxury beds, as well as TVs and DVD players, hospitality trays and organic complimentary toiletries. Award-winning breakfasts are served in our dining room and include organic muesli, Aga-cooked porridge, fresh juices, locally-sourced full English breakfasts and kippers, as well as hot drinks and fresh juices, toast and preserves, and we have a pretty woodland garden with benches overlooking the lake.
White Moss House features a free on-site car park. Book all five rooms for a house party, and we'll serve a gourmet five-course dinner on a night of your choice. Free WiFi is included, you'll have free membership for a local leisure club and we provide free fishing permits for local lakes. For further information about our beautiful B&B, please call us today. We'll be happy to take your booking, and we look forward to seeing you.
