“A fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at The Chestnuts. Lovely room, great breakfast (Nigel makes the most perfect poached eggs!!) great location and great hosts.

We stayed in Room 2 (buttermere) which is one of the four poster rooms. The room was perfect for us, a comfy bed, lovely and clean and a lovely hot shower. Yes the shower is small as has been mentioned but it wasn't a problem for us. The little touches in the room also make a great difference especially the fresh coffe pot and coffee, perfect for after a day out in the cold!

The chestnuts is perfectly located, 15 min walk to Bowness where you will find the main part of the lake and pier and 10 mins walk from windermere.

A great stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again if we were off to the lakes.

Received a lovely welcome on arrival and could not fault either the service or accommodation during our stay. The guest house is ideally located between Windermere and Bowness offering the ideal location for old and new visitors to the Lake District.

The room was wonderful. Booking on website was very easy and there was lots of information. Heather was very friendly and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The breakfast was delicious with a lovely variety of things to choose from. My partner and I were in need of a relaxing weekend break and this hotel provided the ideal location for us. We will definitely be returning.

Having just returned from a weekend stay at the Chestnuts, I can honestly say what a great place to spend a few days. Out host was extremely welcoming, and the room was just as descibed. Everying you could ask for. The little touches of a 'proper coffee pot', fresh flowers in the room, and all the other small touches made it feel a 'home from home'. The breakfast choice was great, well cooked, and was probably the nicest we have had in all the years of visiting the lakes. Keep up the good work, as we plan to return to Room 5, later this year !!!

Great hotel visited late april 2012 10min walk from the lake, staff were very accommodating and even found storage for our bikes. Parking was not a problem either. Room was modern with little luxury items modern tv with DVD.
Breakfast was nice mixture of things from cooked breakfast to toast and ceral with juices or tea and coffee
Very competitively priced would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Very nice B&B- good location (with parking), friendly and helpful hosts, lovely breakfasts. We'd definitely stay here again if we come back to Windermere.
Just a couple of suggestions- it would be nice if the bath was given a quick clean every day (since all the exercise meant we got fairly dirty), or at least some cleaning equipment could be left in the bathroom for the guests to do it themselves if they wish. And my husband was a little disappointed that there was no black pudding for breakfast, but I appreciate there probably isn't much demand! Apart from this, it was an excellent stay overall.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 6 at the top of the house. Nice 4 poster bed, but the angles of the roof meant you...
