What a wonderful experience afternoon tea at this hotel is. The food is amazing, with little surprises here and there, all beautifully presented and plentiful. The owners cannot do enough for you and are attentive and friendly, really lovely people. The place itself is beautiful, we were there for over two hours just having the best time. We have had afternoon teas in many, many places including top London hotels but this is one of the best! Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

Food, service, value for money, all perfect. Caroline is really lovely, very friendly and helpful. Only minor issue which took almost nothing away from the whole experience, was the music playing which was just generic instrumental, when an actual song came on it only played for about 10 seconds before going back to random sounds. This is only said to justify my ambience rating, the overall experience was still amazing.

This was a beautiful country hotel and the owners were very friendly and offered fantastic service. Their afternoon tea was exceptional and had a few extra little savoury surprises at the start of the tea. The cakes were superb as was the pastry. 10/10 from the moment we arrived. Thank you.

Best afternoon tea in the Lake District. We were treated to a mini soup and fish and chips to start with, followed by yummy sandwiches, cakes and warm scones. We couldn't quite finish it all (we really tried!) so took home what was left in a little cake box. This could be dangerous as we only live 20 minutes away!! Thank you Cedar Manor Hotel :)

A lovely afternoon tea, one of the best we have had anywhere. The food was delicious, especially the fish and chip taster and the lemon meringue tart. The scones would have been perfect but for my taste needed to be more crisp on the outside other than that it was perfect. The service was excellent and the setting is peaceful and lovely, we will certainly return.

We had an incredible four nights at the Cedar Manor and was just what the doctor ordered after a very difficult 18 months! The hosts were a delightful mixture of being attentive and entertaining and nothing was too much trouble. They showed a genuine interest in us and our experiences. The food throughout was faultless as were the high standards of cleanliness and relaxing surroundings. We thought that we really got value for money and so much more. We had afternoon tea there (I have had a few in my time) and it was by far superior to any that I've had. Everything was simply perfect. We will definitely be back and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who asks! Thank you so much, Cedar Manor.

My wife and I had never done afternoon tea before and we decided this would be the last thing we did before heading home after our 3 day break. It was a great experience, the owners were very pleasant and helpful. In the 2 hours we were there we felt stuffed afterwards. The food was great, even in small amounts and there was a wide choice of different teas to drink. This is definately a place you should try.
