White Moss Walks

The powers that be have put nice brown Tourist Information signs either side of White Moss House, pointing to "White Moss Walks". It shows car parking, toilets, picnic area and disabled access. Very nice!
When you get into the car parks, the Lowther Estate (who own the area , and have now taken back management of it from the National trust), have put up maps and suggested walks.

So now it's official White Moss Walks are a top tourist attraction. Stay at White Moss House, and follow the Walk round Rydal Water, and all the other White Moss walks to your heart's content- with no parking charges!

I wonder if there is a money making opportunity here we should be thinking about? Yesterday I got a phone call from a lady who has just passed on a bus, seen the White Moss Walks sign, and wanted to know when the next walk started, and how much would it be or was it free! mmmmmmm I wonder- Peter loves walking and telling everyone about the area- maybe I'll suggest it to him!

Someone is actually reading my blogs!

I write away in the hope that someone out there is reading my blogs, and from time to time people tell me that they have, indeed, read them and enjoyed them
Today a guest has just told me that she loves my blogs, all my articles published on Squidoo, and she produced the print out of my White Moss Walks page. Yes! Fame at last!

If you want to use this guide to walks from White Moss, you're very welcome, whether or not you're staying with us at White Moss House ( the only house ever owned by Wordsworth btw) . It would be really nice if you could leave a message in the guest book for the page.

For a more detailed look at the Rydal Round I've written a walk round Rydal Water, which has lots of pictures and information . Take a look, even if you're not visiting right now. Messages are very welcome , here or on the web pages .

Fantastic foxgloves! Rooms free this weekend.

The foxgloves on the fells and in the fields around White Moss House are looking amazing right now.Great purple heads are pushing up through the bracken all over Loughrigg Terrace, round Grasmere and Rydal Water.
Now that we have an official brown tourist sign for "White Moss Walks" I  wonder if even more people will realise what a great area for walkers this is!

Here is my personal guide to White Moss Walks, complete with my own photos too. I'm off for a walk right now, in the sun ( it's raining at Wimbledon, and the only match on is Venus- I'll give her a miss). I'll be taking some foxglove photos for the next post.

We still have rooms this coming weekend, and the forecast is quite good. Please ring 015394 35295 or email me, for our best quote.

See you soon!
