Chestnuts Guest House
Ranked #9 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2010

Very clean good size rooms with 4 poster beds. We took 6 of the 7 rooms and were very well looked after. One spacious room on the ground floor if you don't like stairs. Other rooms had baths or showers. Breakfast ,very high standard and beautifully served by a bubbly young lady.
The guest house is in easy walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness.
I don't think they will have any problems with their occupancy rates

Our first impression of this beautiful, well cared for, house and garden was WOW. The surrounding area was equally impressive and it was indeed within walking distance to both Windermere and Bowness so ditching car and eating out in evening no problem. Our second impression was how clean and tastefully decorated the Hotel was and we knew we could relax in our lovely bedroom, where everything you could need was already in place and of a very high standard. Staff were very friendly and attentive and the breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed our stay and made use of the facilities at Windermere Manor. We would highly recommend this Hotel for anyone looking for a well situated, competively priced Hotel with extra facilities close by for a break in the lovely Lake District.

Beats a Travel Lodge or Best Western hands down!
When we arrived Heather welcomed us with coffee and home-made cake (delicious!) while she told us about the hotel - we admired all the natural wood and the atmosphere it created.
Our room contained a lovely wooden 4-poster bed, and next morning when we said we were too hot under the quilt, Heather gladly changed it for a lower-tog blanket. And the extremely-filling breakfast was delicious!
Chestnuts was ideally-situated, 10 minutes walk from the lake at Bowness and 5 minutes walk from Windermere town centre.
We would strongly recommend this lovely guest house and will go back again whenever we are in the area.

The owner of this b&b was very talkative, full of information regarding walks and the local area. Which turned out to be very useful for our day's walk. The b&b was comfatable and relaxing. I had read a previous review that very nearly stopped us staying at this b&b. That review was unfair and not so the case for us and our stay was a nice pleasant one.

Heather and Nigel took over The Chestnuts Guest House on 27th May 2010 and thank you very much for your review. We enjoyed nearly eight years as the owners of The Ravensworth Guest House in Windermere where we were continually making improvements and intend to do the same at The Chestnuts.
