“Birthday treat”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

We have just returned from a three day break at the Cedar Manor,what a lovely place. The stay was a birthday gift for my husband , from the friends who joined us at the Manor. We knew it would be good as our friends are regulars at the hotel, but just how good was a nice surprise. The rooms were a very high standard, well appointed and very clean. The bed was so comforable a very big. Our hosts, Jonathan and Caroline are great, nothing is to much trouble, and I am sure even the most demanding customers will be accomadated without question. We have stayed in alot of hotels in Great Britian, the Cedar Manor is by far the best, the food was very good and the menu was a good mix of new and contempory dishes. We will return and enjoy another stay and this first class hotel.

I was taken here as a surprise for my 30th by my boyfriend, and it was wonderful. The hotel is gorgeous, with a cute little bar area and lovely, spacious bedrooms. We ate in the restaurant the first night and the food was to die for! Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. In a great location with lovely little walks on the doorstep, and just a short drive to longer walks.
Would love to visit again!

Stayed here 2 nights 5 - 7 April 2013
I booked the cosy Claife Heights room - wish I had upgraded as it was a double bed, and we are used to a King - but my fault !
Jonathan and Caroline are amazing hosts, and nothing was too much trouble
We booked for dinner on the Friday , and the meal was amazing! the little extras were very surprising !
Breakfast menu was more than we imagined, so much that we didn't need to eat again until the evening !
A fantastic hotel and hosts - I recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: if you are used to a king bed then dont book Claife Heights - cosy room ( means small) very warm th...

Waiting years to experience the lake district, I was not disappointed, it is a beautiful place, with breath taking views. My partner and I stayed at Cedar Manor over the Easter weekend, the service we received was fantastic, Caroline and Jonathan are both very friendly, down to earth people with interesting stories to tell, the room we stayed in was very clean and had fabulous views of the lakes and mountains.

My partner planned to propose to me over the weekend, he had asked Jonathan where the best view points were, recommendations on restaurants, organised flowers to be delivered to the room through the hotel and provided him with good guidance on when and how to avoid the crowds to make the proposal private. My partner/fiance proposed to me up on Orrest Head, which is a beautiful view point near the hotel.

On the evening we dined in the hotel's restaurant, which I would highly recommend as the food is delicious, not forgetting the yummy breakfasts provided every morning. The staff had made the effort to decorate our table with small pretty congratulations decorations and hearts, making the table look very nice and when we returned home they had sent us an engagement card, which was very thoughtful.

I could not recommend a better place to stay, the hotel, the location, the food and the staff are all fantastic, we had an amazing time, which we will never forget and one day we will return as a married couple.

Thank you Caroline and Jonathan, we look forward to staying with you again soon.

My husband booked cedar manor for my 40th birthday, over easter weekend. Within half an hour we both decided that we would definatly like to return. Caroline was very informative with local info and what we needed to know about the hotel. What a perfect retreat for a couple of days. Our room, crinkle crags, was perfect, wonderful views. I don't think I ever been in a shower as powerful as this one! We dined on one night and it was wonderful food. The chocolate dessert was delicious! Presentation of every course was superb. Only wished we had longer here.
