Welcome to Mosscrag Guest House, a cosy little bed and breakfast situated in the heart of Cumbria. Perfectly positioned at the start of one of the most popular pathways to the summit of Helvellyn via the iconic Striding Edge, our guest house is minutes away from the shores of Ullswater Lake. Here you can hire boats, take sailing lessons and ride on the Ullswater Steamers. Mosscrag Guest House is the ideal base from which you can explore all the best that the Lake District has to offer.
Located in the centre of the historical town of Glenridding, you have access to a choice of shops, bars and restaurants on your doorstep. During the summer evenings we are happy to provide you with glasses so you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer whilst listening to the bubbling Beck from the front courtyard.
We hope you choose to stay with us at our B&B in the Lake District, and look forward to welcoming you to our guest house.
Built in 1914 from local slate, Mosscrag has been running as a guest house almost continuously for over a century. On winter mornings you will be welcomed into the breakfast room by a warm log burning stove. Our breakfast options include a traditional hearty cooked choice made with locally produced sausages and bacon. Bacon, sausages, eggs, milk and yoghurts are bought from a neighbouring farm and even our electricity comes from a local provider who uses 70% renewable sources. Our accommodation is cosy and comfortable and by 2021 all rooms will have been fully refurbished and refreshed as part of our ongoing improvement program. Every room also has free WiFi access.
