“"Wonderful New Year break"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We recently came home from Nanny Brow's after our amazing New year break of 4 days.. we were made to feel, as always, so special and such a part of the family.We stayed in the Langdale suite which is stunning with breathtaking views and the breakfasts are devine. We throughly enjoyed our relaxing stay and had plenty to keep us amused whilst in the beautiful Lakes and Ambleside especially. Sue, Pete and Mark made our stay even more enjoyable, they are amazing at what they do and how at ease they make you feel whilst staying with them. We have never been away for New Year before so this year was extra special for us staying at our much loved "Nanny Brow" Sue, Pete and Mark made sure we had an amazing time whilst with them starting with with mulled wine and mince pies in the lounge and finishing with a beautiful firework display and champagne. Already booked our 5th visit in just over a year and this time we have chosen our wedding Anniversary to share at "Nanny Brow" we could'nt think of a nicer place or with nicer people to spend our special weekend with xxx

Room Tip: All rooms at Nanny Brow are individual and simply stunning

We booked the Nanny Brow as it looked luxurious and welcoming.We were not disappointed.The views from the room were spectacular and the facilities were superb.As we had decided to eat in Ambleside on both nights,we needed a taxi and the staff /owners were only too pleased to help with the booking.The breakfasts were superb with nothing being too much trouble.The quality of the food was exceptional.The only downside was the small window for breakfast 8 to 8 .30 a.m and as the booking out time was 10 .00 a.m,the final morning was a little bit rushed,and we needed to relax.! At night we ate in the Glass House in Ambleside and it was excellent.Very tasty food,exceptional serive and reasonable prices.

Simply A - M - A - Z - I- N - G !!!
We recently had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful bed and breakfast in Ambleside. The welcome, accommodation, service, breakfast and location were all second to none. We will be returning as soon as we get the chance. Thank you.

Simply the most beautiful room we have ever stayed in (Whitwell Suite), with an intoxicating view; packaged with the attention to detail and welcome that is usually the reserve of the 6 Star Dubai hotels at 5 times the price.The owners really made our New Year's Eve extra special; we made the right choice to stay in that night - why go out when you have paradise on hand?! The superb breakfast was simply the icing on the cake and made leaving even more traumatic! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Book direct - stretch to the extra for one of the suites - ...and relax

You don't need to search any further, this place is just wonderfully AMAZING. From the moment we arrived the welcome was warm and friend, the accommodation was just beautiful and the breakfast was just wonderful. Do your senses a favour and stay here.

Room Tip: The BRATHAY SUIT had the most amazing view... Oh and beautifully furnished

This luxury B&B is set in a lovely valley with amazing views from the bedrooms down the valley. The staff were very helpful and efficient and go out of their way to make the stay memorable. The rooms are very well equipped and the breakfasts are amazing! Even tho the weather was miserable the welcome and the peace and quiet of this beautiful place made it a very memorable experience. Ambleside and all its amazing restaurants is within walking distance or a short taxi ride. It is worth every penny! Would definitely go again.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front with view down valley
