We all had a fantastic time.. The place was in the perfect location with so many walks on our doorstep meaning we didn't have to drive if we didn't want to. The dogs loved it. We look forward to booking again soon.

One of the beds in the twin room was broken upon arrival- this caused us some inconvenience and disappointment..

Really enjoyed our weekend at White Moss.. The accommodation was very clean, warm & cosy. Fantastic views over Grasmere water & only 10-15 minutes walk downhill into Grasmere. The Alcock tarn walk was directly behind. I would definitely book this again, it was perfect for five of us & our dog.

This was a fabulous apartment really big and airy with fabulous views of the lake, we took our two little dogs and the walks around were great right from your door.. We loved our week even though the weather was not great we will definitely come back to this apartment.

Our holiday cottage suited us brilliantly as a family with 2 very young children.. Having a large dining and kitchen area where my 3 year old could play safely while we cooked was great. The master bedroom was large enough for us not to feel cramped sharing it with our newborn baby. Finally, the view of Grasmere lake from the living room window was spectacular.

We had slight misgivings when we arrived in the dark, having taken a side-turning recommended by the SatNav before we got to Grasmere.. However, up we climbed, eventually finding White Moss. First impressions were that it felt very remote - not filling us with confidence given we wanted to eat out and use Grasmere as our base! BUT.... As it turns out, White Moss is only a 10 minute (downhill) walk from Grasmere centre - though a slightly longer uphill trek back :) This has the major advantage of White Moss being quiet, tranquil and blessed with the best views from any self-catering apartment we've booked. White Moss is the basement apartment in what was obviously at one time a huge and very beautifully appointed traditional slate walled house overlooking Grasmere and the fells beyond. Huge sash windows make some of the rooms full of light, with incredible views over the terrace. The bedrooms vary considerably in space - the twin relatively small (though fine), with one of the doubles absolutely enormous. The high ceilings give the place a real sense of space, which is good. The kitchen is very well appointed for self-catering, and the open plan dining room (part of the same large room) is great for a meal with friends or family. The decor is fine, if a bit tired in places (the bathroom could do with some modernisation for example, though is very adequate), but it's clean and certainly not something to put off visitors unless you want a perfect boutique hotel-type experience. For a good sized group of walkers wanting a comfortable, quiet and well-positioned retreat, it's perfect. Other amenities include wi-fi and a well-stocked cupboard full of board games - as well as the normal TV and DVD player (which we didn't use!) Our only two very small negatives were that we didn't have any hot water (from the taps) for washing up or hand-washing (the shower was electric thank goodness) and one of the twin beds had popped a slat (which I fixed). Otherwise, we were all very happy with White Moss and would happily book again.

We really enjoyed the big rooms, the family/living room was specially confortable to spend family time in the afternoons.. Kitchen was fully equipped for any cooking you may want to do. Hot water stream was a little weak and internet connectivity outside of the living room was also not so strong, this where really minimal inconveniences.

Fantastic location, easily accessible walking trails, comfortable beds and well appointed kitchen..

Beautiful property.. Much bigger than we expected and extremely clean and comfortable. Very homely. The views from the property were gorgeous. Little touches were very much appreciated such as the milk in the fridge on arrival and tea and coffee. Very welcome not to have to make a trip to the shop so we could have tea after a long journey . Beds were very comfortable. No complaints. Had a great week and would recommend you to friends and family.

The only two things which were a bit of a problem were that the drain was blocked outside and noise coming through ceiling and party walls.. Otherwise we made an excellent choice!
Mr Smith, July 2019

Had a lovely time at White Moss.. The views from the cottage were amazing. It was very comfortable and had everything we wanted. The ONLY thing we would change was that there was no direct access to the outside space other than walking around the cottage but it didn’t spoil our stay. The gardens are beautiful and our dog enjoyed exploring them! Would definitely return.

The apartment was exceptional with all its high quality fittings and furniture.. It was very clean and had everything we could want. However and its a big however. The noise from the other apartments disturbed us every night. One night the couple up above had an argument late at night. The apartment upstairs sounded as thought they were moving furniture round late into the night. It sounded as thought they were showering late at night this meant we were disturbed by the water running through pipes in our bedroom? The apartment next door had a loud dog that seemed to bark uncontrollably. We accept that the noises we heard were just the people moving round and not from unacceptable noises however we were disturbed every night and this tainted our holiday..

Really well-presented and well-equipped apartment, very comfortable and just right for four people with a dog! The location was beautiful with views over Grasmere, and it was great to be able to walk up into the hills or down into the village, without needing to rely on the car! Will visit again!
Mrs Kinsella

This place is amazing, outstanding views and everything you need in a holiday home.. Easy walk to Grassmere and bus route! ( with a hill included) set in beautiful grounds with visiting deer. The apartment exceeded our expectations, absoloutly stunning very high class with everything you need and more!

The flat was clean and the beds were comfortable.. I think the pictures of the outside area are very misleading. The approach to the White Moss door is very scruffy and quite dirty and there is no easy access to the terrace at the front - no useable outdoor space to enjoy the georgeous view. You can climb out of the sitting room window but obviously that was not satisfactory. Noisy neighbours started at 6:30 am, the insulation is poor. Even at this time of year the storage radiators were barely adequate. We arrived back from a hard day on the fells cold and wet and didn’t really warm up until we went to a warm pub! Some strange omissions - only one toilet roll for 5 people!! and no hand soap in the bathroom. There is nothing drastically wrong but in general as we have spent many weeks and week end in the lakes it was disappointing and not good value for money compared with any other place we have hired. Adequate but not much attention to detail.

What a wonderful week we just had at White Moss.. The setting just above Grasmere with views across the lake was perfect. The weather was amazing so lots of walking and swimming in Grasmere and Rydal Water. The property was lovely and had everything we needed. We are already planning our next trip.

The cottage was excellent, clean, spacious and warm.. The location was good, just 15 minute walk to Grasmere village. It was all on the one level which was perfect for our group of mixed ages. I will certainly be booking again

Very well turned out property, with a well appointed kitchen suitable for self catering. Views are stunning!! However this property should NOT be rented from November to April, due to the heating entirely inadiquit. It is preset to 19 degree mornings and evenings and 12 degrees the rest of the day (which it doesn't even click on during the day as it's standard set temp is so low). The rooms are large in height and single glazed, although there is a fan fire in the lounge which can heat the room comfortable, the kitchen and other bedrooms are very cold! So much so that we had to purchase a fan heater to purely heat the dining room/kitchen areas during mornings and evenings. The hoover we have used quite a few times in our stay, but it smells terribly on usage and needs cleaned out and washed which isn't for us to do.

Lovely, well equipped apartment in a great location close to Grasmere.. All on the ground floor, suited us very well as our party covered four generations of our family. Clean, comfortable and well furnished. Great for exploring the Lakes, very close to Dove cottage and well located for seeing all that the Lakes has to offer. Really enjoyed our stay.

This is an exceptional apartment with the highest quality furniture and fittings. It is in a quiet location very well placed for walking into Grasmere, the Wordsworth Museum and close to the route up to Alcock Tarn and the Coffin Trail. We would certainly go back there.

A lovely apartment in a multi occupied large old house. The scenery overlooking Grasmere lake was superb and the garden was in full bloom with rhododendrons. There were seats on the terrace where one could relax with a glass of wine after a day in the fells. There are good pubs locally, serving good pub food. The quality of the furnishings was exceptional and I would certainly recommend this holiday let.
