Sorry, we are now fully booked tonight, but we do have rooms from tomorrow and for next weekend.

It's absolutely beautiful here in the Lakes today. Guests are heading off up Fairfield ( from the door- no need to find a parking space somewhere). Other guests are just taking gentle strolls along the coffin route starting and finishing here at White Moss House.

You can read my guide to 6 circular walks from White Moss House here.

We have rooms available next weekend. Email me ( and I'll quote you our best rates ( better than booking via an online booking system). Don't miss the autumn colours. Bring your camera.

Dry and sunny in the Lakes this weekend- and we have some bargain last minute rates.

We've been fully booked midweek, but we've got rooms available this weekend. Where's the logic in that?  We've actually welcomed lots of overseas visitors, who are on a trip round Brtiain and are not tied to the weekend. This week we have welcomed guests from Sweden, France, the USA and Australia.
However, we do still have rooms available this weekend, so we've reduced the rates. You can see our offers here on our Lakes Bed and Breakfast Special Offer page.. We even have a room available for a 1 night stay on Saturday 28 September.

The weather forecast really is good- 17 degrees and sunny on Saturday. Don't hesitate- book asap!

The leaves are just beginning to turn. This is the creeper on the front of White Moss House. Some of the trees have turned golden or red. There will be some excellent photo opportunities this weekend to catch the early autumn colours.

Reduced last minute rates until 19 September.

We're a little bit quiet for the next few days, so we've reduced our rates in the hopes that we can tempt you to a last minute visit to the Lakes.

Log Fire, Wordsworth Lounge, White Moss House

The wet weather of yesterday has passed , and (hopefully) we'll be getting some great early autumn days. The log fire is buring in the lounge, so the wonderful smell of woodsmoke and the warm glow of the fire welcome you .Here's one I took earlier (spring, obviously)

Check our rates via our website, or email me (  for our best offer.

The Tour of Britain, day two, on Monday 16 September takes place in Cumbria, starting in Carlise, and finishing in Kendal. Bradley Wiggins and Co. will zoom right past us at White Moss House. The press, the media, the TV and all the assorted cars , vans, bikes, technicians etc will be going right by. What a spectacle!

If you would like to have a spot on the bank of our garden overlooking the road to watch them all fly by, it's yours. All you need to do is to book your room at White Moss House. You could stay Sunday and Monday nights, so that you'll be in place in the afternoon when the riders go by, or for even better value, stay 3 nights.

We can offer rates from as little as £70 per night for two guests B & B if you can stay 3 nights. This is a perfect location for your Lake District accommodation during the Tour of Britain 2013. Please email, or ring me on 015394 35295 to check our rates and availability.
