Why Helen Smith chose Windermere & Central Lakes

The Cedars is a timber clad lodge nestled in Pull Woods in Ambleside, its the perfect setting for a truly memorable holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of the Lake District National Park. The nearby village of Ambleside has a wide array of restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops and galleries. The Cedars has lake access and is surrounded by the woodland and it's extensive wildlife. The Deer can be spotted wandering through the woods most days.

What makes this house unique

The Cedars is a really unique property, its a converted tractor store, lodge and offices. With its timber clad exterior The Cedars sits perfectly in it's woodland setting. It has direct access to the Lake and Pull Woods, its the perfect property for a family holiday. If you are into walking many footpaths are accessible on foot from the property, we are also a short 2 min drive from the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn! Please note the property has access to Pullwood Bay Estate grounds and the Lake but is not lake fronted.

Fabulous property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from our third annual family holiday in this property - our grandchildren aged 9, 7, 5 and 3 love going to 'their holiday house'. The outside space is extensive and only yards away from a jetty onto Lake Windermere where they go kayaking and swimming. The accommodation is perfect for our family of ten - it is very well stocked and everything we need is there. The decor is really nice and it is always very clean and well cared for.

The location is ideal and a good starting point for visiting all of our favourite places.

Customer care is excellent and Helen is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with - we are already planning next year's visit to this property.

Exceptional cottage quietly located near the lake

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property maintained to a very high and modern standard within a stone's throw from the lake and a short drive from lovely Ambleside town. Extremely well located for all the key Lake District attractions. The bedrooms are well equipped and bright. The living area is really the winner here with a cozy kitchen table and double height living area with open views of the woods. Heating, hot water, parking, kitchen appliances worked well! We had no complaints and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning some day!

Truly Magical In The Woods Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property throughout, Helen really has a kean eye for interior design. Amazing place and more than enough room for 10 people.

The lodge is set in the woods so you really do need a car to get put and about.

If i had the tiniest niggle it would be to rearrange the living room area to provide enoug seating for 10.

But the photos really do not do this place justice.

If your after peace and tranquillity then load your car up with enough supplies of food and drink , turn your phones off and just enjoy the gorgeous scenery. You'll soon feel recharged.

Fantastic property and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Great property, well appointed, very stylish and high quality finishing's. The location was great and very private. You can walk around the grounds and there are walking paths to Wray Castle which is about 1.5miles away. The coffee machine was great in the kitchen, freshly ground beans. The fridge is a bit on the small side for a large group, we did a delivery which worked out really well. There are no condiments in the house so make sure you take your own salt and pepper and oil etc if you are cooking. We all had a great time and will plan another trip. Great base for exploring the lakes and getting the family together.
