We stayed here for a wedding and a couple of days after the wedding. The venue is beautiful and very picturesque. There are lovely fell walks on your door step. The service is fantastic. The rooms are clean and individual. What more could one ask for? It is a little expensive but it probably costs this much to maintain this... More

Excellent place to stay. Staff really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed in a junior suite which was fabulous and spotlessly clean. We did this as a spur of the moment. But defiantly will be back on a planned visit. Would highly recommend to stay here.

Perfect in every way - we will be back! Lovely room, lovely view - only a few minutes drive from Ambleside so very conveniently located. Homemade cake waiting for us every afternoon on return from walking in the hills - what more could you want?!?!

Feel very welcome throughout. Beautiful and comfortable rooms with tastefully selected arts and crafts decorations. Great breakfast with many choices which suits everyone. Emma, daughter of the family has the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. Looking forward to going back.

Most enjoyable stay at a beautifully restored 1904 Arts and Crafts family home, better than any other B&B or hotel we have stayed in. Our bedroom and bathroom were very peaceful, large, light and airy, with spectacular views from both rooms. The breakfast menu offered a delicious varied selection. Emma was most helpful and friendly throughout, making us feel welcome... More

Well where do we begin, from start to finish our stay at Nanny Brow's was amazing. We were made to feel welcome and at home from the start. We stayed in the Whitwell Suite which had breathtaking views of the valleys and an amazing bathroom. The room was exceptionally clean as was the whole hotel. Breakfast was outstanding, freshly cooked... More

Calling Nanny Brow a B&B, is like calling a Michelin star restaurant a take away. A beautiful Arts & Crafts property, which has been restored to the highest standards by its owners. A real labour of love. Rooms are beautifully furnished with antiques and very spacious. Breakfast is cooked to order and is of the highest quality. Every possible indulgence... More

A fabulous place to stay for our visit to the Lake District. Great access to the fells directly behind Nanny Brow & close to Ambleside. Breakfast & the cake waiting in our room on returning in the afternoon were both lovely. Thank you to our very welcoming hostess Emma & all the team.

What a lovely warm welcome my husband and I received on our arrival from Emma. She has obvious pride in Nanny Brow and was keen to share it's history and beautiful architecture . We stayed in the Langdale suite which is large and comfortable with stunning arched windows and a luxurious deep bath in the ensuite bathroom - very welcome... More

Fantastic from the beautiful afternoon tea and pre dinner nibbles supplied by Janet to the wonderful views from the hotel. Emma, was the most attentive hostess and really made the stay memorable. We stayed with friends to celebrate our and their 30th wedding anniversaries and would most definitely recommend if you feel like being totally spoilt. Go on...you know you... More
