Time to book for autumn!

It's looking like being a very busy summer here at White Moss House.  The weak pound is helping, as we've had loads of European visitors plus a healthy dose of Australians who've never had it so good as far as the Aussie Dollar goes. We'll be putting off our trip down under for a while though!
If you're planning an autumn visit, to enjoy the lakes at their best , once the children are back at school, then now is the time to book. September is already pretty busy, and everyone loves to come in October, so don't leave it too long.

July already!

Here we are in July already. The lavender is looking amazing at the front of the house. We have the annual decision- do we leave it for guests to enjoy, or cut it and dry it so that we can all have the memory of it in pot pourri throughout the year.

Half and half is probably best. Last year I left it too long, and all the lavender got soaked one night and became useless for drying. There are photos and information about White Moss Lavender here.

I know, in the scale of world events , worrying about whether to cut the lavender or not is not a major decision along the lines of  "will Greece leave the Euro and send our economy crashing". It's a nice little problem.Just thought I'd share it.

By the way, if you want to book for September and October, now's the time, as bookings are coming in thick and fast. You can email me,
