You can find Chesters at Skelwith Bridge, the gateway to the Langdale valley, in the heart of The Lakes. Encircled by fells and a few minutes walk from a waterfall, the surroundings alone are well worth a visit.

Step inside what was once the timber store for a bobbin mill and that is where the past ends. Inside you can buy anything from a contemporary chair, to a piece of handcrafted local slate. You'll find the latest in home & fashion accessories, furniture & furnishings and design led giftware from all over the world. With so many innovative & unusual items available, what better place to hold a wedding list.

An added attraction next door is Chesters Café by the River, serving lunch, drinks and legendary homemade cakes. In the summer, relax on decking looking out over the water. Combine the both of them to make this a destination not to be missed.
