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 and 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 home-made 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.
