We stayed at Brownber as part of our Coast to Coast walking holiday. Rather than walking 20 miles from Shap to Kirkby Stephen we decided to make that day slightly shorter and instead walk slightly further to Keld the following day. This worked out fine with neither day being too taxing. The hall is a short walk downhill from the... More

I stayed here with a friend for one night whilst on a walking holiday. The house is fabulous, Peter was extremely friendly and helpful. As we didn't have a car and had been walking the hills all day, Peter had made a prior booking for us to eat supper at the local pub and even offered to transport us to... More

We booked Brownber Hall for two nights as part of my 70th birthday celebrations and we were not disappointed. My wife stayed here the one night earlier in the year with her walking group when doing the Dales High Way and she wanted me to experience the peaceful time she had had. We had a lovely room with magnificent views... More

I happened to book this B&B only because of no vacancy at Lake District on Saturday night but I hope I would have more time staying there rather than just a stopover. The property itself is impressively beautiful and tastefully decorated. It is in a lovely farm and you will have stunning view of countryside from some of the rooms... More
