After a lovely breakfast we packed our overnight bags, had a chat with Ian and Deb, owners of Ewich House, and were on our way to Keswick. Ian convinced Kent to take the Trossachs Trail which took us past a lovely waterfall at Killin and then through beautiful scenery. We made a stop at Aberfoyle for a drink and soon after we joined the motorway. It added about an hour to our journey, but it was worth it. We came off the M6 at Penrith and found our ...
... and some ups and downs through nice farmland. We arrived at noon to the welcome sight of Lake Windermere, and strolled down the streets to the beautiful Bowness town centre and lake front. So many people! Probably not as crowded as mid-summer, but after the last few days it was strange to be among so many tourists. We felt relief and a sense of achievement to have made it here.
Our B&B was close by ...
... course, but we still managed to go slightly off course a couple of times. One of these we’re blaming on a herd of cattle we’re sure were deliberately hiding the gate we should have gone through.
Finally we saw Kendal in the distance. The Dales Way actually goes through Burnside, but our accommodation was in Kendal about 4km to the south. Being Sunday there were no buses, trains or taxis so after our 20km day we had this extra stretch before ...
Headed off later than hoped but reached Stratford-on-Avon around 1pm. Full of tourists. Lots of people enjoying the weather - overcast but warm. Found a beaut market and enjoyed looking around. Waited 50 minutes for toasted sandwiches that didn't come, so after waiting that length of time, followed Dave's lead and walked out. Ended up with a sausage in a roll from one of the market vendor's. Not a patch on Tasman sausages and HXUC market day bread! No time to see ...

Soon after Dent a fine drizzle developed, and this steadily increased as the afternoon went on so by the time we reached Sedbergh (England’s book capital) around 3pm we were in full rain gear.A visit to this lovely town would have been nicer in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant Windermere
Lovely Place:- Food superb
Just the tonic for a January grey weekend. A really nice atmospheric Hotel/B@B. Food although not cheap is first class. Dining room a really nicely laid out room with good lighting. Really comfy small bar area to lounge around in. Great location, Well designed rooms, Top breakfast. Really nice place to get away from it all. The only slight down if any is that it could be considered a little pricey for what else you coulf get in an area swamped with hotels etc but all said a really good place to have a break.
This really is a great little country house hotel. We stayed in the Langdale room which was very pleasant, it had a very large and comfortable bed and nice bathroom with a spa bath, everything was spotless. The owners work incredibly hard to make your stay good. The breakfast and evening meal were absolutely superb, we couldn't believe how good the food was and there is a nice selection of reasonably priced wine. It took about 10 minutes to walk to Windermere town and about 20, maybe 25 minutes to walk down to Bowness. We will definitely return, had a fantastic time.
Our room was actually a two room suite, with garden views. We were in walking distance of town centre. The rooms were bright, clean and well equiped. I do wish the bedding was a little lighter for the weather (feather bed), My husband enjoyed early morning jogs on trails down to the lake.
We stayed for two nights in the Orrest Head suite which was a beautifully decorated room and very spacious and clean. The spa bath was much appreciated after a day out walking around the lake and was just about big enough for two! We only dined at the hotel for breakfast which was fabulous and set you up for the day. They had no problems adapting the cumberland breakfast to suit my vegetarian requirements and were more than happy to do this. The owners were friendly and welcoming and this service even stretched to helping dig and push several cars out of the car park on the Sunday morning due to the very heavy snowfall overnight. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it suits families and couples alike. The Orrest Head suite is a must for a romantic break. The hotel is really well placed for both Windermere and Bowness as it's just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Windermere village and it only took about 30 minutes to walk to Bowness.
Very Nice Place
We stayed here for only one night in the small, but comfortable Claife Heights double room. The hotel has great parking facilities compared to some we saw, this is a big priority for my husband as he treasures his car and would never book a hotel that does not provide safe parking.
The weather was atrocious, but the lakes are always lovely whenever you go, so I would highly recommend this lovely place. The breakfasts were lovely but we didn't eat dinner here. We thought £22.50 per person rather steep actually. However it's only a short walk into Windermere. Lovely Hotel!!
The 200 yr old Cedar Tree is something else too!!!
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over Easter with my husband and 5 month old. We stayed in the Orrest head suite which was excellent- the separate sitting area coming in particularly handy for a travel cot. The suite was beautiful, very clean, lovely toiletries and bath robe, with a romantic feel to it, although the views were not that great the room more than made up for it. The breakfasts were excellent but of particular note were the evening meals. The hotel has only just started serving dinner and compared to my other visits to the Lakes I experienced the best food. Fantastic dishes and great quantities. When the baby was settled we were able to enjoy some lovely meals with our baby monitor to hand! Great location, just a 5 minute walk to Windermere with plenty of parking. Would highly recommend.
We stayed 2 nights in one of the executive rooms (Bowness) in the hotel (not the Coach House). The super king size bed was very comfortable and the room was well equipped and furnished and also nice and quiet. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and the breakfast selection was excellent and well cooked. The location is very good within very easy walking distance from Windermere town centre, and the room prices are very competitive in comparison. Private parking is provided. The hotel resataurant looked good and comes with commendations. We preferred to dine out however and very much enjoyed meals at The Lighthouse in Windermere and especially Americana's in Bowness which was absolutely excellent. A great place to base yourself for exploring The Lakes and we shall definitely plan a return.
A lovely hotel set in peaceful surroundings, good food and service. The rooms are splendid. A joy to visit, thanks!
A lovely place, and really nice food
My wife and I stayed in the 'Windermere' room which was absolutely delightful.
We ate in the restaurant (which has only just opened apparently - the hotel is under new management) and it was fabulous!
I'd recommend staying here, taking an early evening stroll down to Lake Windermere and coming back in time for dinner in the restaurant. My idea of heaven!
A lovely, small hotel located in a secluded area. Our family of three stayed in the coachhouse, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The facilities are well-maintained and the room was very clean.
