For the first few months I am leaving gaps of several days to a week between one set of guests leaving and the next arriving. I am rotating bedding/cushions/books on a weekly basis. Re. bedlinen etc. my bedlinen goes to a laundry and is not used for at least another week. I wash towels myself at 60 deg.
Our Inspector's view
Crummockwater Cottages in Loweswater enjoy stunning views of Crummock Water and the surrounding fells including Haystacks and Great Gable. The cottages are the converted barns and stables of Foulsyke, an old manor house. They are grouped around a courtyard, accessed through a carriageway arch dating back to 1797. This beautiful, quiet area is an excellent location from which to explore the north-western and western fells and lakes on foot, by bike or by car, starting straight from the door.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
