  • "Lovely cottage,nice quality furniture and appliances."

    Wine and scones a lovely surprise. Scenery outstanding,surrounding area adjacent to farm great and very peaceful.My wife loved the horses! A few suggested maintenance issues to sort, that the owner may not be aware of. The bathroom extractor fan is very noisy and runs for ages! Suggest a note by the bath to explain that you cannot have a hot bath with the hot tap on full.You need to reduce the flow otherwise the water is ‘luke warm’ The temperature in the bedroom was very hot when we arrived and difficult to modulate.Both upstairs and downstairs underfloor heating is on 24/7.This is waste of energy and adds unnecessary expense for the owner. Overall a brilliant place for a relaxing holiday.

  • "Lovely stay."

    Great location. The boiler was leaking and no hot water for two nights but the owners arranged a plumber and made a gesture of compensation at the end of our stay, which was appreciated. Good quality fixtures and fittings, really well equipped. Think there could be a little more attention to detail. Chipped plates, dripping kitchen tap, a tile piece loose around the base of the shower tray but the welcome of wine and scones, was a nice touch. Even had a knock on the door and the offer of some candles, during a power cut. I would highly recommend a stay. Thank you Sue and Ross.

    It is in a great location for exploring the northern lakes with good access to Cockermouth, Keswick, many good walks and pubs with good food nearby. It deserves its 5* rating as everything inside was high quality and very comfortable. Thank you for sharing it.

  • "We had a fabulous week at Cedar Nook and whilst the listing is totally accurate, the whole holiday exceeded our expectations."

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly but also respected our privacy. The weather for us was pretty grim, but the cottage is spacious and very comfortable, with everything you could possibly need, so we would have been perfectly happy staying indoors if we'd wanted to. However, the location is equally magnificent, with plenty of walking from the door and stunning scenery, not to mention a few very good pubs in close proximity. We would highly recommend a stay here.

  • "We have just enjoyed the most wonderful week at Cedar Nook."

    The accommodation is excellent in terms of its location and facilities. Sue and Ross are extremely friendly and helpful and it was lovely to receive homemade scones and a nice bottle of wine on arrival. Cedar Nook is a short 10 minute walk to the Kirkstile Inn that we would highly recommend. It is also located close to some excellent Lakeside walks on Crummock and Loweswater. We absolutely loved our stay so much that we have already booked for next year.

    Right up there with the best properties we have ever stayed at. The hosts were exceptional and helpful.
