This is a wonderful property and in beautiful location on great grounds. The staff are very kind and helpful. The breakfast is some of the best I've ever had. It is expensive, but well worth it. I would love to stay there again.

Nanny Brow was the best place we have stayed. Emma gave us a good welcome when we arrived, she showed us to our room ,where each day on the refreshment tray there would be two slice's of cake. The room was excellent and very clean. The breakfasts each day was also excellent. We loved Janet she was the best.

The guest house is set in wonderful gardens in a beautiful location just outside Ambleside - I was able to walk into the town in twenty minutes - it is along a road without footpaths for some of the way, but it is fine. Plenty of buses for those without cars. Our room had a beautiful view and was furnished... More

Just arrived home after staying 3 nights at this wonderful B&B. We stayed in the Rydal room whilst my brother and his wife stayed in the Sawrey room which also has a shared lounge making it perfect for family/friends on a break together. We could not fault ANYTHING about this place, the staff were amazing and made us feel so... More

We spent 5 nights at Nanny Brow, in the Whitwell Suite which was wonderful, beautifully appointed and luxurious, with fabulous views towards Elterwater and delicious homemade cake for us everyday ! The breakfasts were amazing, we hardly needed to eat until teatime. Sue and her staff could not have been kinder, even helping with a birthday card and ice bucket... More

The team were fantastic from the minute we arrived until the day we departed. We stayed in the Kentmere room which gave you wonderful views over the valley . The house has been restored with attention to detail and you must ask for the restoration book. The homemade cake in the room each day was an excellent example of the... More

My husband and I stayed at Nanny Brow for two nights at the tail-end of our England trip and honeymoon. It was our first proper bed and breakfast and it was the most amazing experience. Everyone is friendly, laid back, and helpful. The room was spacious, bed comfortable, and we got treats each day along with our tea. They had... More

Coming to Ambleside anticipating an intense academic schedule at the nearby campus of the University of Cumbria; the stay at Nanny Brow significantly enhanced the visit. The facility was the first and last observations in such a beautiful part of the world. The proprietors and staff were very kind, generous, and seemingly passionate about a host of customized services provided;... More

Best views in the lakes and set far away from any bustle. Great couples b&b and they did an amazing job at accommodating my gluten free diet. A few rules but mainly in response to people who have complained about things I imagine as in room book was very detailed, just be proud of how good you are as you'll... More

A beautifully restored arts and crafts house with fabulous views. We stayed here for 3 nights as our daughter was swimming the Great North swim. We are so pleased we found this lovely B &B although that title hardly does it justice. The breakfasts were fantastic, it's a shame we weren't here longer to try everything on the menu! The... More
