“Lovely hosts and setting. Room needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

Stayed here on a Saturday night whilst attending at wedding at a venue across the road. The staff, the two owners were very friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere on walking in from the cold air was cozy and relaxed. The setting was stunning, the views breathtaking. The breakfast was also lovely. The reason we have only rated this average is that we felt although the room had a rustic cottage feel and charm in some aspects which we like, at the same time the bathroom was in desperate need of updating. Although it looked clean, the oldness of it made it look worse for wear. The room was also freezing. I was cold in the night and whilst getting ready in the morning, the radiator was not on and it was well under freezing outside. Other than this, a really enjoyable stay and we would return if only for the lovely hosts and amazing location.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Mosscrag.

We booked Room 4, the 4-poster room. It was a lovely room at the front of the house, with views of Ullswater and the surrounding fells. There was a large shower room with a bidet too!

The house was extremely clean and Mark and April made us feel very welcome. There is a cosy residents' bar/lounge for a pre-dinner drink with plenty of books to read. The breakfast was perfectly cooked and we also had enjoyable packed lunches.

Mosscrag is only a few seconds' walk from the centre of Glenridding and its hotels, bars, cafes, shops and bus stops. We were able to set off walking straight from the front door.

Room Tip: Try Room 4

My wife and I recently stayed for a few nights at this B&B and we felt right at home, Mark's local knowledge of the area for walks and history was second to none, the breakfast was just right for the walks ahead of us and the B&B is well placed only a few minutes walk from Ullswater lake and situated right next to a picturesque water stream and close to the local tourist information centre.

We would highly recommend for coast to coast travellers and even new starters to walking such as ourselves.

Mark the host was very welcoming. The rooms on the upper floor were a bit small but nicely appointed.

I went to a wedding at the inn on the lake in July. I booked into the mosscrag as a more budget friendly option. Mark was very welcoming.
The b&b was very cosy. The bed with its multitude of pillows was comfy. The ensuite shower room was a little dated. The location was good and convenient for the wedding.
Breakfast (with Veggie option, hurrah) in the morning was fabulous.

Mark the owner, is very welcoming and a good host. Helpful tips on walks, and the breakfast is just the ticket.
We had a room without en suite but with a comfortable bed, hand basin in the room, meant not too much hassle for the shared bathroom.
Excellent location and easy to find and good access to the town and walks.
