Luxury woodland lodge for 10 guests with access to the shores of Lake Windermere
About Lois King
My husband, Jon, and I fell in love with the Lake District some years ago. For me, it was all about the views and the afternoon teas, but I am gradually coming round to the idea of climbing mountains. Jon has been known to 'avoid the traffic' by taking the kayak across Lake Windermere to the pub at Watersedge. Our two young children love joining us at 'our holiday home'; we will have them climbing Helvellyn before too long!
Lois King purchased this House in 2014
Why Lois King chose Ambleside
As frequent visitors to the Lake District, we fell in love with the location of Pullwood Bay, the tranquility of The Cedars' woodland setting, and the ability to wander down to the lakeshore.
What makes this House unique
Wake up to sound of silence, start up the built in coffee maker, and wander down to the lakeshore to watch sunrise over Ambleside. After a day's walking in the nearby fells, kayaking on Lake Windermere, either stop to sample the food and beverages at the renowned Drunken Duck or fire up the BBQ and retire to a position by the cosy log fire.

Fab stay small glitch
Property lovely could not check in till 4pm and when we got in, the Lodge had not been cleaned, beds not changed kitchen not cleaned the bin was overflowing with rubbish. I gave the owner a call, who I have to say went above and beyond to rectify the situation. It did delay our start to the weekend, which did mean we had to change our plans, but Lois the owner was brilliant, and the Lodge was amazing and would of been perfect if not for the start, which meant we started the weekend late.
Jayne you’ve been a lovely guest and thank you for understanding our situation with the cleaning companies error. We aim to make sure our guests have a reason to come back and so thank you for your review. We hope you visit again soon.
Woodlands all around house.
Family weekend holiday
Had a wonderful time at the cedars cottage, will definitly be booking it again for next year!
We had a wonderful time in the Lake District. The house was perfect for our family time together.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. You must visit us again some time.
Beautiful property in stunning location
Wonderful location on the beautiful banks of lake Windermere, but the star of the show has to be the property itself. You can tell a lot of effort and thought went into the design and it really makes for a relaxed and comfortable stay and a base to explore. Our party ranged from 8 years of age, to 70 and we could all take advantage of the hiking trails and views all on our doorstep. We loved it and will definitely be back. A special mention to Lois who was so helpful and patient throughout the booking process. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much Julianne. I am always happy when guests ask me questions about the place and happy to help in any way I can. I am so pleased you enjoyed the property. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
Fantastic location with everything you need for a relaxing stay in the Lake District
The whole process was very efficient throughout
The Cedars is located in the heart of the prestigious Pullwood Bay estate, with easy access to the shores of Lake Windermere just 200 meters or so from the front door. Guests can use the estate jetty, either to launch a boat (if desired) or simply for a refreshing swim.
As The Cedars is located in its own acre of private woodland within the Pullwood Bay estate, it provides a secluded and peaceful location. You may well spot deer through the large picture window.
The property's position in the heart of the Lake District provides easy access to all of the facilities of nearby Ambleside, as well as to some of the region's best hiking and walking, and to attractions such as nearby Wray Castle, and the Aquarium. Windermere Lake Cruises will (subject to advance arrangement) collect guests from the Pullwood Bay pier, providing a picturesque route to Ambleside, Bowness, Lakeside, Brockholes and beyond.
