We stayed at Nanny Brow between Christmas and new year for two nights. The building is very nicely finished in a country cottage style. We had one of the cheaper rooms and it was more than adequate. It was a very nice size and done out very nicely. The breakfast was served in the main house (a few yards away)...

I took my partner here for a few nights as a birthday treat. What a great location with excellent rooms. The welcome from Sue and the team was second to none even giving my partner a birthday card at breakfast. Everything has been thought of here so you'll never be asking for more.

This was our first visit to Nanny Brow and there is no doubt that all the plaudits we had previously read about this establishment are well deserved. The warm welcome and friendly atmosphere could not have been bettered and our room was spotless and well heated with hot water at the turn of the tap. All those little extras provided...
