Chesters sits by the River Brathay and by the old stone bridge from which Skelwith Bridge gets its name.
The Brathay, a tail race from the Langdale Pikes, flows through Elterwater, past us at Chesters, down through Clappersgate and eventually makes its way to Windermere, a couple of miles away.

Tucked away at the start of the Langdale Valley we are in the middle of the Lake District National Park. Situated between Ambleside and Coniston on the Langdale Road, we are an easy walk from Elterwater.
