“Fabulous stay - such a lovely place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

We stayed for one night before my husband started the coast to coast bike ride and it was brilliant. The hosts made us feel very welcome and our two young children were made to feel completely at home. We had a large double en-suite room with another room with bunks for the children. The little one was too small to stay in there with her brother, so we were given a travel cot for her, which was great! Our hosts had a lovely dinner ready for us all, which was very welcome after a long day travelling.

The animals were fantastic and a lovely opportunity for the children - owls, a bearded dragon, bunnies, an African grey parrot and the most popular of all was Rosie - "The Dog Who Could Play Football" (our son was very impressed). The B&B and the grounds are lovely and very spacious, the dinner/breakfasts very impressive and Norah and Bob are just so friendly, it really made a difference to our stay :-)

Will be recommending to our friends who may visit the area and if we do ever return to that part of the coast, we would definitely stay again! Thanks to Norah and Bob!!

Booked "Chestnuts" through the C2C site advice and could not have been made more welcome.
Only person there that night so suppose I was really spoilt by Bob and Norah. Met the many and varied animals which made for a more interesting stay.
As to breakfast being veggie is sometimes frowned upon. Could not have been better, veg sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms etc etc and cerial yoghurts fruit...................
Could hardly manage to bike away!
Would def stay again thanks alot!!!!!

We stayed at Chestnuts back in November 2011 and used it as a start point for the Coast to Coast cycle track.
The hosts were extremely accommodating, waiting up for our late arrival at 11pm and even allowed the boys to store their bikes etc in the hallway overnight. Bedrooms were well appointed with an excellent shower and very comfortable beds and breakfast was delicious and well presented, with a wide range of items on offer.
Located on the outskirts of Whitehaven, we didn't really have chance to explore the town, but the boys had no trouble at all in finding the start to the C2C trail on their bikes straight from the accommodation.
We'd definitely pay another visit to Chestnuts if we're in the area in the future. Thanks!

A belated 'thanks' for a wonderful night's stay.

Beautiful house, very comfortable room (with an amazing shower with a radio and multi jetstreams!), the best breakfast we had all week and lovely hosts. Loved the dogs, cats and owls too.

Bike storage was secure and it was handy to be able to leave our car there all week (for a small fee). Close enough (by bike) to pop to the local pub for a cheeky drink or dinner. Whitehaven is also a short-ish bike ride away so it's convenient to use as a base to start the C2C. If you want to go out in Whitehaven without your bikes then it's a taxi ride away.

Would definitely stay again, if we're ever silly enough to attempt the Coast to Coast again!
