Jopplety How- a lovely walk with great views over Derwent Water

The weather has been so good, we just had to get out and walk. With only an afternoon to spare, we went for one of our old favourites, round Jopplety Howe from Lodore, Borrowdale.
You get amazing views of Derwent Water, lovely walking by the Lodore Falls, and in the middle of the walk you can stop at the tea room at Watendlath .
In the Hugh Walpole "Rogue Herries" books, some of the characters live at Watendlath. In the old days, before the trades description act, there used to be signs on the house saying "Judith Paris lived here". If you know the books, you can work out which character lived there.

All good walks should end at a pub. This one ends at the Borrowdale Hotel, where the garden was very popular in the sunshine, and the beer was very welcome on a hot day.

If you can get away before 1 June, we have rooms available at special rates, and Brockstone Cottage is also available from Saturday 26 May for a bargain week or a short break.Please look at White Moss House Special Offers page or email It's quiet here right now, and the weather is spectacluar. You can hear cuckoos and skylarks on your walks, and the azaleas and rhoddies are looking brilliant.
