We spent last weekend here and really enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed by Heather with tea and cake and shown to our very comfortable room. The breakfasts were excellent and it was just a 10 minute walk into either Windermere or Bowness. It was lovely to be able to leave the car and go for a nice meal in... More

Well that's a first! Dreary! Since I go out of my way to be friendly and helpful to all our guests I really can't understand this comment. More

What a perfect b&b to return to after long walks in the Lakes. Walking distance to both Bowness and Windermere, parking, wonderful hosts and superb breakfasts. The amount of choice of the breakfast was brilliant and it was delicious and so well presented. Large, warm rooms, perfect after freezing, rainy walks and in the four poster rooms you even get...

Came across The Chestnuts by accident. Probably the best guesthouse we have stayed at in UK....(not just UK, anywhere). Quiet room, comfortable bed, first class breakfast. Hope we come back and stay longer. Central to Windermere and Bowness, on a quiet street, parking, specialty breakfast and excellent hosts, Nigel and Heather.

The owners were absolutely lovely and the breakfasts were delicious!! Our room was right up in the eves and it was fab! Very importantly the shower was powerful and hot!!! Very... More

Stayed here 3 nights to May 22nd. I have paid 3 times the price and not had the cleanliness, comfort and space that this delightful B&B has to offer. Down to the cotton buds in the en-suite, the corkscrew and two glasses in the room, TCMF with great cookies! I couldn't find fault with anything! Great hosted sing from Heather... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location of the B&B is great, it's a lovely looking place and it's really handy with the off the road parking. The first thing I found odd is that I was made to pay within seconds of being there. I felt this was a little eager to get my money. Especially as it... More

Had a lovely visit. Stayed in room 3 which wasn't overly large, but enough for us (a couple on a 2 night stay). Loved the 4 poster bed, found it very comfortable and great pillows as well. Our ensuite was also small but very clean with nice touches such as body lotion, shower caps and cotton swabs. House was in... More
