Stayed 3 nights at Chestnuts and received a warm welcome from new owners Suzy and Paul, who are fantastic hosts and have given the place a makeover which looks amazing. Our room was lovely and comfy and a great choice at breakfast (the best poached eggs ever!). We will definitely be visiting again! Julia & Rob (Scarborough)

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
