We arrived earlier than I had expected but they were so helpful letting us in to drop off. The bedroom was comfortable. The breakfast was good with various options including scrambled egg and smoked salmon. I would visit again. Probably not for really small children.

Family had a great stay at Chestnuts Guest House. Had a very warm welcome, rooms were beautifully decorated and well thought out. Extras in the room like hot chocolate packets, water and biscuits were a nice touch. Full English breakfast was great as well! Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

I stayed at Chestnuts Guest House for 2 nights over the weekend with my wife and what a real treat it was, we’ve stayed at many guest houses and B&B’s before but I can honestly say none of them come close. The décor throughout is beautifully done and lovely and fresh, the room was spotlessly clean with a nice view...

Friendly staff, and a beautiful room at a budget cost for me and a friend to stay a couple of nights. Fantastic breakfast! The location is actually ideal! It is perfectly centered between Bowness and Windermere with a short walk from each.

A little gem! Nestled down a leafy street, with FREE parking, & within easy walking distance into town. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Paul & Suzy, a real home-away-from-home' vacation. The bedrooms are comfortable, bright & airy, & the breakfasts are delicious; especially the poached eggs! We'll be back!

We found this little gem of a guest house nestling on the corner of a tree-lined avenue just off Lake Road, conveniently between Windermere and Ambleside. Greeted by enthusiastic host, Suzy, we were shown to a beautiful, recently refurbished room which was enhanced by the double aspect which flooded light into the room. All amenities were excellent. Breakfast was served...

Just back today from a lovely weekend at Chestnuts. Superb location and the owners were so friendly and hard working. Poached eggs at breakfast were top drawer. Give this place a go it's fabulous. Parking on site and a leisurely stroll into Bowness. Perfect location.

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
