Freshly Cooked Breakfast

An important part of your B&B experience, we pride ourselves on offering a hearty breakfast that will set you up for the day ahead. Chestnut’s philosophy is simple: ‘from farm to fork’, all ingredients are locally-sourced and sustainable; supporting local farmers and artisan suppliers wherever possible. While your cooked-to-order breakfast is being freshly prepared, you can enjoy the Continental buffet, or simply sit back and relax with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

Chestnuts is an easy 5-minute walk from Windermere centre, and 10-minutes’ walk to Bowness and Lake Windermere; making it an ideal location for the scenic Lake cruises and mainline train station.
