Welcome to Longmoor Head Bed & Breakfast


It is with a heavy heart  that I have to write this. The health, safety and welfare of my customers has to be a priority. In light of the UK government's latest advice and due to the ever changing circumstances surrounding the coronavirus and the uncertainties that come with it, I hope you understand that I have no choice but to close the bed and breakfast for the foreseeable future.  I am so sorry and hope you would consider visiting us sometime in the future. 

Please look after yourself and keep safe.

Longmoor Head, Ennerdale is a distinguished Grade II listed farm house on the western edge of the Lake District World Heritage site with easy access to the Western Lakes and fells. Dating back to the early 16th century the house looks out to wonderful views across the countryside and fells. It is situated in a secluded, peaceful location on the edge of the village of Ennerdale.

For Coast to Coast walkers the property is located at the bottom of the Cole Fell Road at the end of the first days walk.  At the bottom of the hill turn left walk 50 yards over the first cattle grid and we are on the right.  Look for the two large cobbles at the top of the lonning.  We are a 4 minute walk away from the village centre where you will find The Gather shop and cafe together with two local pubs.

The house has many traditional features including cobbled yards, graduated slate roof and dovecote openings at either end of the property.

The interior has stop-chamfered beams, inglenook fireplace, slate flooring and stone newel staircase. The property has been extensively and sympathetically restored with every comfort in mind, it has been decorated in period farrow and ball colours to give a unique look creating an inimitable vibrancy and life in every room.  With comfortable and stylishly furnishings it has an informal and relaxed atmosphere to ensure you have everything you need for a relaxing and pampered stay with us.

Facilities include a drying room, private parking and lock up indoor storage for bicycles and backpacks.

All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with luxury showers and toiletries, Freestat TV, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk and homemade biscuits. Rooms have a seating area with a supply of local maps and guidebooks for your comfort with beautiful views of the garden and the Ennerdale fells.
