The spectacular scenery of the north west Lake District is some of the most stunning and beautiful in the British Isles and sat right in the very heart of it the small hamlet of Loweswater is one of the prettiest in the Lakes. Leave the hustle and bustle behind you as you wind along the country lanes and approach Cedar Nook.
Created from the old hay barn at Godferhead, this once busy farm is now a haven of peace and tranquillity, horses and sheep graze in the surrounding fields, chickens wander through the old farm yard whilst buzzards circle high overhead.
This wonderful Lakeland retreat offers beautiful and high quality accommodation through the seasons and whatever the weather.
Accommodation In Detail
The front door to Cedar Nook opens to reveal a beautiful cottage, steeped in history, oozing with quality and the owner’s attention to detail is clearly in evidence. To ensure guests benefit from the best of the views, this wonderful barn conversion is presented with the living accommodation on the first floor and the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor.
A beautiful oak staircase takes guests to the open plan living accommodation. The very first thing every visitor does is to throw open the picture window and look out from the Juliet balcony at the stunning scenery that surrounds the cottage which perfectly frames the ancient cedar tree from which the cottage takes its name. If you can tear yourself away from the view, now is the opportunity to take in the rest of the room, with comfortable sofa arranged to benefit from the views and also to relax in from of your favourite film on TV beneath the oak beams that are another fantastic feature of this room.
A circular dining table is just the place for a hearty breakfast before a day on the fells or for a romantic dinner for two. The bespoke, handmade, kitchen is well equipped with four ring electric hob and oven, dishwasher and fridge (don’t worry there is a freezer as well –its downstairs in the boot room) and is complemented by a quality inventory.
Back on the ground floor, the luxurious bedroom suite is a real treat at the end of the day, the pretty bedroom is presented with a sumptuous kingsize bed and the superb ensuite shower room with walk in shower, bath, basin and WC.
On a summer’s evening what better place to sit than on the patio, with bistro garden furniture, as the sun sets behind the cedar tree!
Private parking is available for one car.
Loweswater is nestled between the beautiful North Western Fells, offering relative peace compared with the “honeypot” areas of the Lake District, with Crummock Water, Buttermere and Loweswater lake within easy reach.
Melbreak, Whiteside and the mighty Grasmoor offer exhilarating high level walks, or take gentle lakeside and woodland strolls, all from your door.
The famous Kirkstile Inn is a 10 minute walk away, offering a fine, locally sourced menu and Real Ales. The Wheatsheaf in Low Lorton is a 10 minute drive away – another characterful “local” with great food.
