Just wanted a handy Guest house for a short weekend break in the Lakes and fortunately chose the Chestnuts. Ideally situated just off the main road between Windermere village and Bowness it just what we wanted. The owners couldn't do enough for us even to providing a nice late morning pot of tea in the sunlit garden after a stroll...

We have just returned from a last minute weekend away in the Lakes and decided to stay somewhere different to previous visits. The Chestnuts was a little gem. The staff were lovely and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was sourced locally and tasted delicious. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.

Easter break, returning to the chestnuts a couple of years since our last visit. The property has been recently taken over, and I'm happy to report that standards remain high as always. Some degree of modernisation has taken place, and the breakfast is excellent. Wish Suzy and Paul every success in their new venture.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sympathetically updated throughout January 2017, Chestnuts is an attractive Victorian B&B offering seven individually styled bedrooms, many with original period features. With a choice of doubles, four-poster rooms and a twin room, all guest bedrooms have en-suite showers or baths, and plenty of little luxuries from free Wi-Fi to a hot drinks station. The house itself is over a century old, and sits in a quiet area, surrounded by a secluded garden, and ample off-road parking for guests. The dining room is an airy room, with high ceiling, and benefits from an original fireplace, perfect for an early winter’s morning. Chestnuts is an easy five-minute walk from Windermere centre, and ten-minutes’ walk to Bowness and Lake Windermere; making it an ideal location for the scenic Lake cruises, England’s highest peak Scarfell Pike and a mainline train station. ... more   less
