We will be ready to welcome guests again in our large super-king-size room with virtual en-suite, from 20th July!! 

We are unable to offer our other 2 rooms under the current COVID-19 restrictions, so guests using the double room will be the only guests in the property, thereby reducing the chances of infection from others.  We also have a professional grade COVID-19 destroying disinfectant fogger which will be used as an effective addition to the usual cleaning between guests. 


Enhancing your experience
of the Lake District!

Morris (M) and Judith (J) - hence 'MJ'! run a Bed and Breakfast in Patterdale in a gorgeous part of the the Lake District,

along with guided mountain walks, especially the famous Striding Edge of Helvellyn.   

We can offer bespoke arrangements which can include any or all of:   

Bed and Breakfast in Patterdale, at the foot of Ullswater in the Lake District

We have 3 rooms available in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District.  The route up the famous Striding Edge on Helvellyn is accessible straight from our front door.  The Coast to Coast path also goes past our front door, as does the famous Howtown walk down the side of Ullswater. 

There are loads of other local attractions too (Ullswater Steamers, hiring motor boats, Aira Force etc). 

Guided Mountain Walks, Lake District (especially Helvellyn)

Morris is a fully qualified and insured Mountain Leader with over 30 years of mountain walking experience throughout the UK, including climbing all 284 Scottish Munros, in all weathers.  He has over 20 years of winter walking experience, including completing log-book and course for the Winter Mountain Leader Award (an injury sadly prevented him from taking the assessment).  He is a keen ice-climber, member of the Mountain Training Association, a probationary member of the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team and a Community First Responder.  He is available to guide you safely up Helvellyn (including Striding and Swirral Edge), or any mountain or Grade 1 scramble in the Lake District (weather dependent). 

Map and Compass/Navigation Training, Lake District

Morris has spent 30 years walking in every mountain area in the UK, in all possible weather conditions, and in the most remote areas of the UK.  He has plenty of experience of needing to know exactly where he is!  In this world of GPS, it is still essential to know how to read a map and compass properly!  Morris enjoys passing on tips and knowledge that come from 30 years of experience, and which you won't find in a book!  Morris tailors his navigation instruction to the needs and expectations of clients, offering bespoke packages which can include climbing your favourite mountain(s) whilst learning to navigate at the same time.  He can also teach night navigation - again essential for any serious mountain walker in the UK.
