the whole place was spotless and warm we were treated very well on arrival. made to feel right at home the food was excellent. the room was great and big would recommend this place to any one.
we only stayed the one night, not long enough.
Large rooms, great food. High quality and friendly service. Highly recommended.
Wonderful warm welcome by our hosts John and Emma. Outstanding accommodation and delicious breakfasts. Faultless service throughout our three night stay. Thoroughly recommend.
Didn't like having to leave!! Already planning our next visit!
Lovely room, excellent breakfast, and great helpfulness from Sue the owner!
WOuld have liked a bath rather than just a shower. Would have been nice to have been able to light the fire in the lounge, but not a big deal.
Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms spacious. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. Home baking in the room a nice touch.
I would have prefered a bath rather than shower room but understand this is in line with their environmental policy.
Lovely warm welcome, gorgeous surroundings and views. Fabulous suite and cake! Nothing too much trouble for anyone and seriously could not fault a thing.
Having to leave
The location,the owner,and the house,also really nice breakfast.room was so comfortable it also had a fantastic view
Nanny Brow is a beautiful place with awesome views and our hosts looked after us incredibly well over the weekend. The room that we stayed in was very nice and the cakes left in our room were delicious and a welcome treat after days spent out in the December Ambleside elements. For me, the pinnacle of our stay was breakfast. The 'full English' was hearty and everything that you would expect and more and the salmon and scrambled eggs and the 'drop scones' were amazing! My wife and I like to try different and new hotels whenever we go away but the next time we go to the Lake District, Nanny Brow will be the first hotel we try to book and we cannot wait to return.
Everything, would highly recommend.
Everything & everyone we met we were made to feel extremely welcome
the feel of the house
Myself and my Fiancee stayed here for a birthday celebration - the staff were very friendly and helful and the little touches like the homemade cake and the offer of a beer at 11pm when we arrived were very much apreciated. the owners were very helpful and the breakfast was amazing! all in all a great stay!
Nothing at all !!
- very bad staff - dogs everywhere - room heating was not working - insects in the room - there was a bad smell in all hotel areas - breakfast was horrible - bad location, you will need 40 min minimum to get taxi, and far away from the town
The accommodation and location was amazing.
the only little issue, was the mattress, needs to be changed, otherwise an excellent choice and great value for money
staff were very friendly and helpful.the hotel had a loverly veiw,it was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was top quality enjoyed my stay

No need to get in the car. A walk that starts behind the house which leads to an amazing view of Windermere and then down to Ambleside. Comfortable, restful accommodation. Delicious, generous breakfast, lovely homemade jams....
Such an amazing location, place and even better service. The people working here were helpful and always ready to give any information. Breakfast was delicious and the service was efficient. Definitely will Come back again!!
Welcome. Quality. Cake. Views. Comfort. Breakfast.
Everything was to an impeccable standard. Beautiful surroundings and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere
The rooms were lovely, comfortable and well furnished. Everything worked beautifully. Breakfast was delicious and the welcome gingerbread cake was just that - very welcome.
Stunning B&B with first class facilities. A wonderfully restored Arts & Crafts house in which the owners have created the perfect balance between luxury and informality. The breakfasts are delicious, the rooms offer every comfort and the location is ideal for exploring the Lake District.
We were looking for somewhere nice last minute, this place was right where we wanted. Great staff, lovely rooms and a fantastic breakfast as well as helping us find a restaurant for our night out. Have recommended to several friends.
great stay,lovely room,friendly staff.yummy breakfast.
The house was beautifully restored to it's former glory. Very comfortable and good facilities - large, comfortable guest lounge, breakfast dining for up to 26+ guests in attractive dining room, and wine bar serving wines by the bottle and spirits by the glass. Staff very helpful and friendly.
