Breakfast finished at 9.15 so felt rushed in the morning when we wanted to lay in and relax.(most other places are about 10.30 on a Sunday)..... When showing us the room there was too much of stating the obvious(we could see where the bathroom, door, bed , TV etc. were. A bit too familiar
Quality Breakfast, stylish room, very nicely decorated,
Car park was full.
Relaxing comfortable stay with fantastic breakfast and stunning views of local area. Loved the roll too bath!
Pretty much everything, the welcome the breakfast the homely feel.
Absolutely nothing as it was all perfect for us.
Peace and Quiet Stunning views Lovely staff Beautiful rooms Comfy bed Power cut (like the old days)
Could not fault anything.
Staff very friendly and helpful ! We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay, breakfast was excellent. Treasured every minute.
Stayed here with my partner in March 2015 for two nights.. Our room was lovely, very clean and the bed was so comfy. The staff were very friendly, especially Janet (the housekeeper). Breakfast was delicious. Views from our room where amazing. Would definitely recommend this place to stay.
There was nothing to fault and I loved the restoration of the house to its former arts and crafts glory.
Very relaxing and friendly environment. Great views of the valley and easy access to the fells.
the place it self was just right for my wife and i
Can't find anything to complain about, it was wonderful.
Friendly and helpful staff Excellent breakfast
There's nothing we didn't like everything was excellent and very homely .
We loved every minute of our stay at nanny brow it was a perfect superb homely hotel and we will be back in the summer .. loved it x
Location & setting. Tasty homemade cake on arrival!
The breakfast was served early (8.15am) if you are hoping for a lie in. However we had a couple of action packed days ahead and simply went down in pj bottoms and a sweatshirt then showered and got ready after!
The service was fabulous, the breakfast amazing. The rooms are stunning and cosy. Had a fabulous nights sleep and the freshly baked cake in the room each day was out of this world!!! The view is stunning, so peaceful.
we only stayed the one night, not long enough.
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.
Large rooms, great food. High quality and friendly service. Highly recommended.
Didn't like having to leave!! Already planning our next visit!
Wonderful warm welcome by our hosts John and Emma. Outstanding accommodation and delicious breakfasts. Faultless service throughout our three night stay. Thoroughly recommend.
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.
Lovely room, excellent breakfast, and great helpfulness from Sue the owner!
I would have prefered a bath rather than shower room but understand this is in line with their environmental policy.
Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms spacious. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. Home baking in the room a nice touch.
Having to leave
Lovely warm welcome, gorgeous surroundings and views. Fabulous suite and cake! Nothing too much trouble for anyone and seriously could not fault a thing.
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.
