Very friendly and warm welcome, great location (easy to walk into both Windermere and Bowness), clean and comfortable room (with a teddy!), DVD selection available to watch in room, excellent breakfast (you order the night before and it is fully customisable - e.g. sausage, bason, beans, fried bread, no mushroom etc etc). The poached eggs to die for!

We spent the first four nights of our 14 day trip to England and Scotland here. We found it to be a very relaxing and welcoming stay and in hindsight, it was our favorite place out of the 8 places we stayed at: the bed was very comfortable and we slept wonderfully there. The room was clean, quiet and offered... More

This very charming guest house is cozy, comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness. There are lots of breakfast selections including fried bread (yummy) and eggs benedict which the owners prepare and serve themselves.

We had a lovely warm welcome when we arrived & were shown to our room. Our room was spotlessly clean (as was the whole property) & quite charming. We had tea, coffee & chocolate making facilities along with biscuits. An LCD TV ,DVD player & iPod hub were in the room also a hairdrier. We also had ample wardrobe storage... More

Situated half way between Bowness and Windermere the Chestnuts is within easy walking distance for both. Spotlessly clean and with lovely breakfasts it offers the ideal location in the southern lakes. With a warm welcome and excellent facilities we are happy to recommend it to future visitors.

Good place to stay, very comfortable and welcoming. It is right in between Bowness and the Lake and the village of Windermere. Rooms are spacious with a plentiful ensuite. Breakfast was great, cooked and served well.

We stayed in Chestnuts guest house for two nights and will definitely be back. Situated just a ten minute walk from Windermere town or Bowness town, it couldn't be better located. When we arrived there were chocolates on our four poster bed, and after being shown our room, we had tea and cake in the dining room... Perfect after a... More
