“Absolutely wonderful!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We stayed here in late June on our way to Glasgow from London, and it was the highlight of our trip to the UK. It was easy to find, situated on the main road through Windermere, and a short walk to the lake edge. So many flowers in bloom...the rhododendrons were gorgeous! The manor itself is quite comfortable, and we especially loved the cozy bar area. Don't miss out on the restaurant. Although breakfast is served, the dinner is to die for! Jonathan and Caroline are excellent hosts. We plan to return someday.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bowness room, which was apart from the other rooms and very quiet.

When we were looking for a hotel in the Lake District we selected Cedar Manor due to the reviews on Trip Advisor and were very glad we did. Cedar Manor is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Our room, Windermere, was very large and well appointed and looked out over the pretty garden. It rained on one of the days we were there so it was also nice that the hotel had a cosy lounge to relax in.

The hotel is well located, just a short walk from the village of Windermere and there is a pleasant stroll down a public footpath to a quiet part of Lake Windermere.

We had dinner in the restaurant one night which was very enjoyable with great food and excellent service. We also enjoyed the freshly cooked breakfasts using local produce.

Jonathan and Caroline are wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome - it was like staying in a lovely private home. We would definitely recommend Cedar Manor for anyone looking for a little luxury in the Lake District.

A lovely hotel in a beautiful position near Lake Windermere. A period house converted into an atmospheric experience. The owners Jonathan and Caroline went out of their way to make it a very pleasant stay for you and this was also reflected in its fine accommodation and its fine food and restaurant, using locally produced ingredients. What pleased us also was this it has an eco-friendly standards policy and it takes it very seriously. We would recommend it highly and we intend to return there soon again!
It is an ideal base from which to explore the whole of the beautiful Lake District and it is only a
5 minute walk to the pretty town of Windermere, where all services are available.

Room Tip: A nice room overlooking the garden

A wonderful hotel and restaurant. The hosts, the Kays, attend to every detail to make your stay perfect. They are always available to assist with any request. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms have been newly refurbished to a very high standard. The restaurant offers excellent food that is varied and excellently prepared. The service is impeccable.

This was the second time that we've stayed here, and again we were extremely impressed with the room, food, surroundings and excellent service. The room that we stayed in (Wansfell) was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities that we required. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast on both mornings which filled us up prior to some excellent walks easily accessible around Windermere. We were lucky enough to have some beautiful sunshine in the afternoon so could enjoy a drink on the beautiful lawn just outside. We treated ourselves to dinner at the hotel on one of the evenings which was such an enjoyable experience.

The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home. Thank you for the nice touches that you added to make my husband's birthday even more special. We hope to be back one day soon!

We have just returned from a relaxing two night stay at the Cedar Manor and as before, we stayed last September and was so impressed we booked straight away for this June and brought my mother-in-law for her birthday, it was fantastic. Johnathan and Caroline were equally as attentive as before and made us feel part of the family. We had the same room - Orrest - as this has a separate sitting area, which was wonderful after a day out, for the three of us to sit back and have a coffee and a slice of lemon drizzle birthday cake, which I ordered with Johnathan before we arrived, and talk about our day. The food is wonderful and their fresh homemade bread, which is differant each night, is heavenly. Nothing is to much trouble and they are extreemly helpful. Was sad to leave but we will return.

Recently my wife and I stayed at this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a smile. We arrived early so they were happy to store our luggage and offer suggestions for those activities we were interested in. Their assistance was very helpful and added a great deal to our experience. The room was very comfortable and clean. If you stay here you must experience their dinner menu. It was wonderful...we were able to relax in the lounge and given a great deal of attention prior to being seated. The menu was excellent and the meal itself was to die for...
