Cedar Manor

Located within the Lake District National Park, the hotel is ideally located for guests looking to explore world heritage site and enjoy nature. The hotel is just a five-minute walk from the centre of Windermere, where guests can enjoy a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops, with excellent connections throughout the National Park to attractions like Beatrix Potter’s house and Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage.

Occupying a stunning Victorian country house, the hotel has been renovated to an excellent standard, featuring a lounge, bar and dining restaurant, and 10 luxury bedrooms.  Cedar Manor is a very well-known destination in Cumbria, and its excellent reputation has earned the hotel multiple awards, including the Silver award for “B&B and Guest House of the Year” at VisitEngland’s Awards for Excellence 2023.

The hotel has been owned by Jonathan and Caroline Kaye for the last 17 years, who are now selling to pursue other business interests.

Jonathan comments, “I fell in love with the Lake District in my teens. I became a keen fell-walker and trained to be a hotelier after visiting many smaller hotels in the Lakes for family holidays. After meeting Caroline in London and taking her on a few trips to the Lakes, she was also charmed by its rugged beauty.  When the opportunity to invest in a small hotel became available, we jumped at the opportunity. 

“Moving our young family to Windermere was the beginning of a new adventure and love affair with Cedar Manor. The time is right in our lives to pass on this wonderful, historic and beautiful property for someone else to enjoy. What a fantastic location for the hospitality business and also to live with cosmopolitan Windermere and Bowness but also connections to Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh and London just a few hours away.”

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a thriving boutique hotel in a world heritage site, the Lake District. A new owner may wish to build upon the hotel’s success, and add a full fine dining experience.

Joel Osbourne, Negotiator at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well-established, award-winning Boutique Hotel in the heart of The Lakes. Under our client's current ownership, Cedar Manor has been tastefully renovated and transformed with an exhaustive and extensive list of improvements, providing luxury in the Lake District National Park.”
