Poetry Readings at Dove Cottage- a great way to spend a Lake District Evening

If you are planning a stay at White Moss House ( once owned by William Wordsworth!) take a look at the Dove Cottage website to see what special events are on there that you can visit during your stay.

From April to October, leading poets read their own works in Grasmere church, alternate Tuesdays.This week we are delighted that Annie Freud,who is reading her poetry in Grasmere tonight, has chosen to stay with us at White Moss House for her visit to the  Lake Distirct.

Other poets have also stayed here!

Dove Cottage wants to keep poetry alive, rather than just be known for William Wordsworth and the Romantic poets. A brilliant and very successful concept. Take the chance to stay in the only house Wordsworth ever owned ( White Moss of course) on your visit to Wordsworth's Lake District.

Autumn in the Lakes

The leaves are beginning to turn, the log fire is being lit in the lounge, and autumn is on its way. The creeper on the front of White Moss House looks glorious.
If you are planning to visit us for an autumn break, do try to visit during the week, rather than at weekends if you possibly can. We are offering 10% off our usual rates for stays of 3 or more nights midweek.
Please email me, sue@whitemoss to com, to make your reservation.

Blackerry time ! A great White Moss blackberry recipe for you.

The hedges are bursting with blackberries around Rydal Water and Grasmere right now.
Our Grasmere Apple and Blackberry crumble recipe is a perfect way to use the blackberries.
What is the Grasmere part of this recipe? Well, you've heard of Grasmere Gingerbread, and this recipe has a hint of ginger in it, which just adds a little extra something to the usual recipe.

This is an up market crumble!
You are welcome to use this White Moss recipe- please leave a comment on the bottom of the page if you enjoyed it.
