Romance is in the air

I was just chatting to a lovely young couple at check out, asking them where they were going to next, and talking about their stay when he cleared his throat and looked very serious. Oh dear - was there a problem?

"We got engaged yesterday" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! Exceiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They got engaged by the shore of Grasmere, down by the rowing boats and the ducks. He handed his lovely lady what she thought was a handful of feed for the ducks, and it turned out to be a diamond ring.

Isn't that great? Who says that romance is dead? How wonderful !

One night available Saturday 11 August

Rarer than hen's teeth- 1 night on a Saturday! Usually in the Lake District we expect to let a 2 night minimum stay at the weekends, but our special 3 night offer has been so successful that we've filled rooms during the week, and guests are leaving on Saturday morning, so we're happy to offer 1 night stays this weekend.

We've got room 1 ( now with new improved private terrace) for £118, and we also have rooms 2 or 4 for £98. This is for two guests, for 1 night, including tea and home made cakes with our compliments on arrival, our award winning breakfast, free parking, White Moss Walks, free fishing (bring your own rods) etc etc.......

Lots going in the the Lakes right now

If you can tear yourself away from the Olympics, there are lots of good reasons to visit the Lakes right now.The Lake District Summer Music Festival is on now and runs until 12 August. You can hear wonderful music in beautiful venues. It's a real treat.

Also, running though the whole of July, is the Lake Artists Summer Exhibition in Grasmere Village Hall. This is an annual event which attracts over 10,000 visitors. You can buy a piece of very special original art work, or just browse and be amazed.

Now would be an excellent time to visit the Lakes, and stay at White Moss House, in the heart of Wordsworth's Lake District, as we have some great special offers for you. From now until 17 August, our room rates have been reduced by £20 per night! For more details, please take a look at our Special offers page on the White Moss House website. You can also email me, for our best quote for longer stays.

If the sun shines you could be sitting here enjoying afternoon tea and our home made Lakeland tea bread- free to all our guests on arrival.
