I stayed at this Hotel in the early 70's as a Boy of 14 or so. We wanted to have a weekend break this March, in the Lakes, and decided to stay at Nanny Brow. I and my partner, who had never stayed at Nanny brow, were not disappointed.. The Manager, when he heard of my association all those years... More

My husband and I had stayed at Nanny Brow in November 2013,we were very impressed and were determined to return, so when my husband suggested we celebrate my 50th birthday weekend there I didn't need any persuasion. There were 12 of us all together and we were able to take over the whole house for the weekend. On arrival everyone... More

My husband and I stayed at Nanny Brow at the end of March and so enjoyed our four-night break. We were made to feel very welcome by Sue and the house has a very friendly, informal atmosphere. The furnishings are beautiful and the attention to detail in the Arts and Crafts style is impressive, yet the house does not feel... More

This was our second time to this beautiful hotel and it was just as perfect as the first. Sue and her staff are so very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are to a very high standard with all the finishing touches being spot on. It really is a gem of a find and we... More

My husband and I took 24 hours off from a busy life to celebrate my birthday and began with a night at Nanny Brow. It was the perfect start to our time away. The accommodation is clean, beautifully presented, yet homely, and very relaxing. There was yummy home-made cake to enjoy with the drinks we made once settled into our... More

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend of three nights (Thursday night to Saturday) in March 2014. It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted somewhere a bit special. Nanny Brow fitted the bill superbly. The house has been restored to its former glory by the current owners, who were really enthusiastic and rightly proud of their achievements.... More

Really enjoyed our 2 nights at Nanny Brow. Sue was great and Mark extremely helpful, the service was excellent. Room clean, cosy, warm and copious amounts of hot water. Sues cake was delicious. Breakfast very good. Pre dinner drinks in the Lounge before we went out for dinner and opportunity to meet the other guests was very relaxing. We hope... More
