A Special Place to Stay. Award Winning Bed and Breakfast in a Wordsworth House
Situated at the northern end of beautiful Rydal Water, between Grasmere and Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District, this historic house, has been the home of Sue and Peter Dixon since 1981. During those years they have gained many accolades for their award winning hospitality.
Dating from 1730, White Moss House was bought by the poet William Wordsworth in 1827 for his son, and was home to the Wordsworth family for over 100 years. White Moss House is the only house that William Wordsworth ever owned, making it a special place to stay on your visit to the Lake District. Wordsworth’s sister Dorothy wrote in her Journal on Wednesday 2 June 1802 “White Moss- a place made for all kinds of beautiful works of art and nature…”
The five en-suite bedrooms are individually furnished in keeping with the historic nature of White Moss House. Guests can relax in the large,beautiful Wordsworth Lounge with its woodburning fire, flowers, games, books, magazines, comfy sofas and a baby grand piano.
On warmer days sit outside on the flower filled terrace. Perhaps enjoy a bottle of wine or a drink from our well stocked bar. Recommended by the Good Hotel Guide, Karen Brown's Guides, and other leading guides. << less Peter Dixon is a maestro of British cooking - The Sunday Times.
