I can't fault our stay at Cedrus Lodge, it was wonderful! Elaine was really helpful before we booked, then welcoming when we arrived with some cakes from their cafe. The lodge was SO clean, and so well stocked, it made life really easy - we could just get on with enjoying the holiday. There was some washing up liquid and cloths, dishwash tabs and even a bit of laundry detergent. Oh and loo rolls! Plenty of nice towels too. The washing machine and dryer were a godsend and easy to use. There's an airer too, iron etc. The kids were straight outside to play in the garden every day, which is mainly lawn, with some trees and a nice little path round the side, fun for exploring. The beds were amazingly comfortable - we've had some hideous beds in other places, but I slept like the dead. Showers great, bathrooms very clean. Lots of storage in bedrooms. Overall just a lovely feel to the place. Penrith is no more than 10 mins away, and you can cut across country to join the A66 and nip across the top of the lakes in no time. We felt it was really well located, yet once you're there you don't feel like you're a few minutes off the motorway, it's proper rural. We will definitely be back, wonderful place: thank you for having us!
