Covid 19 information
This page gives information relating to Coronavirus precautions for guests staying at Crummockwater Cottages. The cottages and grounds of Foulsyke are well suited to facilitating social distancing measures: the properties have their own private entrances which are situated well away from each other and they each have their own separate outdoor sitting area. The car park is open with plenty of space for considerate parking. There are no interior communal areas.
Nonetheless, as with all areas of life, some changes have been necessary in order to reduce the risk posed by Coronavirus.
Arrivals and Departures
Please see the document below for the revised arrival and departure processes:

As the information files are no longer in the cottages I am including some local information here which I hope may be of help to guests.
I am also very happy to provide guests with any further local information, walk suggestions or details of places they may wish to visit.
Risk assessment and cleaning schedule
I have followed the Government Guidelines for re-opening issued on 24 June, “Working safely during coronavirus: Hotels and other guest accommodation” and have prepared a risk assessment based on the template provided by the Professional Association of Self Caterers. I have also used their self-catering Covid cleaning guidelines for cleaning protocols, equipment and PPE, a cleaning checklist was part of this. I have also achieved the AA COVID confident and Visit England Good to Go accreditations.
There are several changes to enable the cottages to re-open safely for everyone; guests, cleaning staff, myself. My cleaning staff are excellent and we consistently score 100% for cleanliness on our Visit England annual inspections. However, the way we need to operate is different from what we are used to and the staff are having regular staff training in this. We provide a signed checklist for guests to confirm the cleaning that has been done:
