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

We stayed at the Chestnuts guest house for a short midweek break and it was lovely. The house is situated in a really nice quiet spot just off the main road but still only a short walk to all of Windermere's amenities. The guest house was lovely and clean and the full English breakfast is highly recommended!! Our room was... More

Don't complain about the cold in the room or you might be given the cold shoulder as we were. Despite a warm welcome from the host, we never saw him again after asking for a portable heater as the room was so cold. Lovely bed and the softest pillow ever plus a well cooked breakfast, but the owner's attitude let... More
