White Moss House

Rydal Water, Grasmere, Cumbria, LA22 9SE
This destination restaurant, run by the Dixon family since 1981, also has comfortable bedrooms. The house itself, dates from 1730, and was bought by the poet William Wordsworth in 1827 for his son – and stayed in the family for over 100 years.

For lovers of the poet, and of Beatrix Potter, it's at the centre of things – with plenty of historical places to visit within walking distance.

It's a quiet intimate place, very popular with walkers, and the views over Rydal Water from its wooded hillside location are a real bonus. Guests have use of a comfortable sitting room, with an open log fire in cooler months, and a flower-filled terrace in warmer months.

Bedrooms are full of antique pieces, but all have modern necessities such as TV's, radios, tea and coffee making facilities and en suite bathrooms with showers over tubs.

They also let out a two bedroom (one with a four-poster) cottage, just above the hotel, which also has its own kitchen.

Guests have use of a nearby leisure club (gym, squash, swimming pool), and have free access to fishing (but you have to bring your own rods). Well behaved children are welcome, but the premises are not really suitable for toodlers.
