A most enjoyable stay in this supremely positioned house where the friendly owners are successfully maintaining the Arts and Crafts ethos of combining beauty with function and comfort. Nanny Brow does not do evening meals, but there is a plethora of eating establishments in Ambleside and Windermere. As breakfasts are so delicious, covering the full English to a Continental style you won't go hungry!

Room Tip: All rooms have good views, but the best are on the lst Floor

Would have stayed longer if they weren't booked out - but I'm not surprised. One of the best I have stayed at in the UK. Amazingly helpful and superb rooms, location and the breakfast was to die for, so tasty and plentiful.
Lots of help was provided to the area.
Worth every penny and we will definitely come back.
Thanks for making it so special.

A beautiful Arts & Crafts house, ideally located and with wonderful views. Our rooms (we had friends with us) were excellent and very comfortable, although we wish we had chosen one with a bath to soak in after a hike. Susan was extremely helpful and the staff were excellent. Breakfasts could not be faulted with a wide range of healthy and unhealthy choices. Certainly a must when we return to the Lakes.

The Langdale suite is an amazing room with superb views.
The whole place is extremely well run with super friendly helpful staff and owners!
We stayed for 3 nights and I can honestly say it is the best B&B I have stayed in. It is more akin to a 5* hotel.

Room Tip: Langdale suite. High quality, great views. Luxurious. Bathroom fantastic.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your recent stay. As you said the views from Langdale suite through the floor to ceiling arched windows is amazing. Thank you for the lovely comments about us all and that you felt we are more like a 5 star hotel than a B&B.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

All the best

Nanny Brow sits just outside of Ambleside toward Grasmere, offering terrific views from the inn itself as well as fine walks right from the back door of the inn. Sue was extremely helpful with information about walks and local restaurants and her husband is making a great job with the gardens. Recommended.
