White Moss House
White Moss House is situated at the north end of Rydal Water.
Wordsworth rented all the houses that he lived in, and it was thought that he never owned a house, but Dove Cottage archives  and the deeds for White Moss House, show that he bought this building for his son, Willie to live in.
The Wordsworth family expanded White Moss House from three miners cottages to a comfortable family home. The Wordsworth family lived there until the 1930s. It is now a guest house .
