This inn matches the surrounding countryside in its beauty and serenity. The rooms are clean, modernized, and beautifully and uniquely decorated. The location is central to many places of interest in the lake district and beyond. The breakfast is delicious -- entree's are made to order. I enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, and locally made jam and berry compote. Jonathan and...

Have just spent a few days in the Lake District and stayed at this lovely small hotel. Convenient for Windemere and Bowness. Rooms beautifully fitted to the highest standards and meals excellent. You could not ask for more for a perfect stay. Would highly recommend.

This hotel more than lived up to its already established reputation. We stayed for five nights in the Orrest Head suite which was tastefully furnished, extremely comfortable, with the added bonus of a Nespresso machine (a must for the other half) The owners really have thought of everything, nothing is too much trouble and their attention to detail shows.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cedar Manor Hotel & Restaurant is located on the outskirts of Windermere in the heart of the Lake District. Built in 1854 as a private country house retreat, the hotel now provides luxurious accommodation and a fantastic restaurant featuring the best local produce, with a seasonally changing menu. An ideal base for those wishing to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, wonderful walks and wealth of leisure facilities Windermere and the Lake District National Park have to offer. Set in mature walled gardens dominated by the ancient cedar tree, the hotel feels peaceful and secluded, yet is just a short stroll away from the shores of Lake Windermere and the centre of Windermere village. ... more   less
