Certificate of Excellence
Sympathetically updated throughout 2017, Chestnuts is an attractive Victorian B&B offering seven individually luxury styled bedrooms, many with original period features. With a choice of doubles, four-poster rooms and a twin room, all guest bedrooms have en-suite showers or baths, and plenty of little luxuries from free Wi-Fi to a hot drinks station. The house itself is over 200 years old, and sits in a quiet area, surrounded by a secluded garden, and ample off-road parking for guests. The dining room is an airy room, with high ceiling, and benefits from an original fireplace, perfect for an early winter’s morning. Chestnuts is an easy five-minute walk from Windermere centre, and ten-minutes’ walk to Bowness and Lake Windermere; making it an ideal location for the scenic Lake cruises, England’s highest peak Scarfell Pike and a mainline train station.

A lovely warm welcome from Suzy at the door. Room was a little small and chilly but the bed was amazingly comfortable and slept like a dream.
Breakfast was great and a lovely friendly waitress service.
For a 2 night break it was perfect.
