Lovely rooms, very clean, great views, gorgeous breakfasts, and very helpful and friendly owner. Also good value for money. We've stayed there twice over the past couple of years, and will be staying again this weekend for a friend's wedding. The first time we went, we arrived in the dark, and awoke to the most amazing view of the fell opposite. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when I'm the area! Can highly recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Villa. Mike is a great host, and very helpful. Really enjoyed talking with him. A lot of effort has gone in to making the rooms and dining/lounge area very comfortable. The breakfast was good. Only suggestion would be to improve wifi.

From the moment I stepped into Chestnut Villa I felt warm and at home .

Mike is the most genuine , warm person you will ever meet and his bed and breakfast is testament to his loveable nature . His attention to detail is second to none and I can put hand on heart and say , it is the best bed and breakfast I have stayed in .

I am slightly OCD with regards to cleanliness but no need to worry at chestnut villa . It is spotless , so much so I was walking about in my bare feet , something I never do ,

The breakfast was superb and cooked to order . Plenty fruit and cereals and coffee .

I will return without hesitation and it is a hidden gem .

Thank you Mike for a wonderful experience .

Lots of love Joanne xxx

Mike welcomed us on arrival and was a lovely and extremely helpful guy throughout our stay. We had a choice of two very clean and tastefully decorated rooms, of which we chose the one in the attic with a beautiful view. It was by far the most comfortable bed my girlfriend and I slept in over the 7 days we spent in the Lakes. I was also a big fan of Mike and co. bucking the trend of having pictures of the Lake District everywhere (yawn); instead they had lots of herdwick sheep pictures everywhere. Very cool and amusing.

The breakfast arrangements were very neat and forward-thinking; each guest filled out a little card choosing different items they'd like for breakfast the following day and what time they'd be expecting to go downstairs, this was then left by the reception. When you went for breakfast you just told the host when you were ready to eat. It was simple but a really great way of organising breakfast and making sure food didn't go to waste. The food itself was nice and there was plenty to choose from.

Off-street parking was a bit of a squeeze but not too problematic. All in all it was a great stay and we hope to return in future as it's a good base in the centre of the Lakes. Grasmere too is one of the quaintest and most picturesque villages we saw while there too. Highly recommended!

Mike and his team were simply geat. I have been to Chestnut Villa in the past, Mike and his team have done a wonderful job in modernising the rooms as it states on the website. The breakfast was superb as usual. Looking forward to my next stay already .....

Room Tip: Room number 9 for great views, Room 5 for a very modern Shower-room

We stayed there last night (A Saturday night in August 2013). On arrival we were met by Mike who was super friendly and gave us some great advice about our stay in the area. As we were first there we also got the choice from a couple of immaculately clean and well decorated rooms. We went with RM 8 which was at the very top of the house and we were very happy with our choice!
The bed was comfy and the breakfast next morning was worth getting up for and included one of the nicest cooked English breakfasts I've ever had. Superb!
So if you are looking for a nice B&B which is friendly, well looked after, great value for money, within a short walk of Grasmere AND with a breakfast to die for this is your place! Excellent!

Room Tip: Room 8 Was Nice!

Newly renovated B&B with bright and light rooms. You might want to opt for a room on the backside as the road can be a bit noisy. The host is super friendly and makes you feel welcome. The lounge area is rather dull and could do with a loving touch.. But breakfast room cosy and the food tasty..
