If you are planning a stay at White Moss House ( once owned by William Wordsworth!) take a look at the Dove Cottage website to see what special events are on there that you can visit during your stay.
From April to October, leading poets read their own works in Grasmere church, alternate Tuesdays.This week we are delighted that Annie Freud,who is reading her poetry in Grasmere tonight, has chosen to stay with us at White Moss House for her visit to the Lake Distirct.
Other poets have also stayed here!
Dove Cottage wants to keep poetry alive, rather than just be known for William Wordsworth and the Romantic poets. A brilliant and very successful concept. Take the chance to stay in the only house Wordsworth ever owned ( White Moss of course) on your visit to Wordsworth's Lake District.
Tulips finally out and looking good
