We stayed at the Chestnuts for 2 nights on our way back from Scotland, we had a very long journey and were greeted with tea/coffee and cakes which was very much appreciated. Nigel & Heather are perfect hosts. The b&b is very well organised and very clean. The breakfasts are excellent - especially the poached eggs!
The rooms are very clean, and toiletries are provided - also dressing gowns, and a lovely little teddy bear on the bed (nice touch). Tea & coffee (coffee was fab!) making facilites in the room.
The Chestnuts is perfectly located to explore the Lake district, but as we had been so many times before and had spent hours of driving, it was lovely to park the car and just walk to Windermere and Bowness, we had a lovely rest. The weather was even kind to us!
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Chestnuts, and when we are next in the Lake District would definiately stay there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sympathetically updated throughout January 2017, Chestnuts is an attractive Victorian B&B offering seven individually 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 a century 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. ... more less
