During our C2C-walk, we stayed for 2 nights in Chestnut Villa. The stay was relaxing, the room was just great. Although we couldn't get the Wifi work, we enjoyed our stay.

We had a great welcome at Chestnut Villa. Richard and Mike were extremely helpful, moving cars to enable us to park in the drive, helping with luggage and providing local information about where best to eat etc. The room was newly decorated and spotlessly clean with a beautiful view over the surrounding hills. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast delicious. My only reason for not giving the room the highest marking is because the en suite was a little small but that did not detract from our pleasure in staying there. Richard and Mike are working hard to establish their business and deserve to be successful. All in all Chestnut Villa proved to be an excellent choice of B&B and we would gladly stay there again.

Richard and Mike are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Brilliant breakfast. Well on the road to completing refurbishment, will rate excellent when completed. Look forward to visiting again soon to see the finished project. We wish them well, they deserve success.

Lovely clean comfortable suites, and relaxed communal areas. Convenient location is a little way from lake but close to pub and village, with great view from room. Richard and Michael made us very welcome indeed. Comfy bed. Tasty breakfast. Great B&B!

Chestnut Villa is situted just on the edge of Grasmere, ideal for leaving the car in situ and walking the fells directly from the villa.

Perfect Hosts, Mike & Richard, brilliant breakfast, spacious dining room with views of the fells. Warm bedroom and a comfortable sleep, very quiet, even on the main road.

The Travellers Rest a short walk away does excellent food, and in Grasmere - do go for tea & cakes or even at salad at the Miller How cafe.

At the end of a long wet day it was great to arrive at the friendliest and most helpful place we stayed at during our walking holiday last July. Our hosts seem to have got it just right. We felt that our comfort and enjoyment really mattered to them and we loved our top floor room with a view. They helped us in practical ways (like finding lost medication, drying wet boots and even giving us an emergency lift to Ambleside!). This business deserves to thrive.

We had a wonderful time staying at Chestnut Villa. Richard and Mike were so welcoming and cheerful that it was like staying with friends. The house was comfortable and warm and the lounge area was a welcome surprise; not many B&Bs have this on offer. We had considered staying in a youth hostel but this was far better value for money. Breakfast menu was brilliant and I was well catered for as a vegetarian. There is absolutely nothing negative to be said about our stay here, except that we were sad to be leaving. I look forward to staying with you again soon!
