Cedar Manor

The Lake District, England


Boutique hotel in the heart of The Lakes

Cedar Manor is in many ways the definition of a boutique hotel. Up on the hill above Lake Windermere it has just 10 individual and stylish rooms and charming and attentive hosts. Use it as a base to explore The Lake District as well as to relax and recharge in beautiful surroundings

The Location

A short walk from the edge of stunning Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and with views across the fells, Cedar Manor is ideally situated to discover both the historic sights on the doorstep and the wider area. The walking routes nearby are incredible and there are great water based activities available, including genteel lake cruises. For a piece of history you can visit Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage or Beatrix Potter’s Hill Farm. Truly there’s an amazing array of ways to spend your time here.

Windermere is deep into the Lake District national park but only just over five hours from London by car – having one will definitely help get the most out of your time here. However, there are trains direct to the town from Manchester and local buses connect you with some other towns in the area.
