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.
A snowy stay in a beautiful hotel
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!!!
A gem of a hotel
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.
Great, friendly hotel
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.

... them and they were very good "tour guides" - Trevor is a wealth of information! I left the McConnells and drove north to "Alnwick Castle" (pronounced An-nick) - famous for many reasons, but most recently as the set for some famous scenes in "Harry Potter". There I met up with Max's tour again for a short time. We had beautiful autumn weather for most of the week, but here it was wet and cold - more like the weather we'd been expecting! Max's tour bus continued south ...
07:45 and the rain woke us up bouncing off the roof. Jayne opened the window blinds to see a queue of people waiting to set up for a car boot. Blimey, fair play to them. By the time we had dressed and had breakfast the rain had stopped so we had a quick walk around the tat on display. After that we took off and stopped off in Windermere for a quick look around. Busy for a wet Sunday. A couple of miles down the road ...
... over Morecambe Bay. We still couldn't find a site we liked the look of so continued on towards Kendal. 1.5 miles out of town and there it was Grate Farm. A little CL that was totally empty. So another night in a lovely location with views over the surrounding hills. As an added bonus for Jayne the farm hosts a car boot on Sunday mornings. Hope it doesn't start too ...
What a fabulous morning we had. The breakfast at Lingwood Lodge was wonderful, a made to order cooked breakfast and a large pot of tea! After breakie we checked out and went for our bush walk up Orrest Head. We had to drive the short distance to Windermere itself and park near the start of the walk. It took about 20 minutes up a well marked track to get to the top of the Head. We had a beautiful 360 view up the top. We could ...
... houses on the sides of hills. We spent the late afternoon relaxing in our room, enjoying the sunshine. We headed out to The Albert for dinner and once again enjoyed a pub meal with lots of locals. A 'bush walk' of sorts is planned for the morning before the drive to Edinburgh, the last leg of our trip. I am feeling a little sad it is all coming to an end. Love and smiles, ...
