About Cedars House

Jan and Jonathan Knibbs welcome you to Cedars House which they have lovingly restored over the years. They married in 1992 and bought the house a few years later. It provided a lovely family home for their children Jake and twins Alice and Matt and gave them the space they needed to run around and play many games such as "hide and seek".


"A lovely place to meet with our friends for walking and eating. Plenty of space and such quirky decor, only wish I had had 50's clothing with me! Had everything we needed and was very clean."
