The Westmorland Gazette: One of the luxury guest suites in the Cedar Manor HotelThe boutique hotel offers ten luxury guest rooms and suites, a privately accessed Coach House Suite, lounge, bar and a dining restaurant.

The property also includes self-contained 2/3 bed owner's accommodation and secluded walled gardens.

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 said: "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."
