Why Helen Smith chose England

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.

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 Tesco.com 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.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

After extensive research for a special family getaway location, we chose The Cedars. We were not dissapointed and were thoroughly impressed by the location, the quality of accommodation and the 'home from home' feel. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and rural (but not too remote) location then this is perfect. Helen the manager was extreemly helpful before and during the stay. Well worth a stay (even if it just means you get to use the coffee machine!).

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights with our children and grandchildren at The Cedars in celebration of my husband's 70th birthday. The property is beautifully located in the middle of the woods and is very well appointed. It is spotlessly clean and all linens and kitchen equipment are of an extremely high standard. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms were all lovely and clean and there was loads of hot water. The property is very spacious and living together (10 people) was absolutely not a problem. There were lots of board games provided - all in tip top condition. The area surrounding the property and leading down to the lake is absolutely beautiful and we would definitely revisit The Cedars.

We took lots of food with us and also had an on-line shop delivered by Tesco on the afternoon of our arrival. This worked out perfectly and we certainly turned out some fabulous meals in the well equipped kitchen! #We greatly enjoyed the bean to cup coffee machine as we're all coffee fanatics.

Our overall impression was that it was even better than shown on the website. Thank you Helen for all your help beforehand.

Beautiful settings, well equipped, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

The Cedars facility is a beautiful one on the Pulwood Bay estate. In the estate there are couple of houses far from each other & allow full privacy for the guests. The Cedars house looks new & it is well equipped, furnished & set for families. Plenty of rooms, bathrooms, TV sets, nice small fireplace & all the other small stuff which makes your vacation lovely.

The washing machine & the dryer are in a facility room just next to the main door which makes it very easy to use.

The area is beautiful & the distance to the main attractions of the lakes district is short.
