    • An English Beauty

      Reviewed 29 September 2019

      We hadn't looked at Trip Advisor before we went, so were in raptures over the view from the front door and our room. Having been to the Lake District many times, this was already my favourite valley, but it still brings a lump to my throat with the sheer joy of it, when I see it: in particular when framed so well by the landscaping of this perfectly positioned typical English county home. The veneered furniture and the period pieces in Art and Craft Style were the icing on the cake. It summed up the very best of English architecture and decor. I speak as an English person.What a labour of love it must have been for Susan and her family to restore it to its former glory. All that would have been enough, but the service was excellent and I loved the selection of homemade preserves at breakfast and the cute little individual butter dish! Also the loose leaf teas were made properly in a china tea pot - even my father would have approved of this cup of tea made in the traditional English way.

      Just got back from our second stay at one of the best B&Bs in the Lakes. Unique Arts and Crafts style mixed with modern hospitality. Lovely rooms, brilliant breakfast and the best B&B front door view looking towards the Langdale valley. A big thank you to Susan and her team.

      Wonderful setting for a beautifully decorated B&B. Staff were fantastic, could not rate Susan and Elliott more. Breakfast was spot on, inlcuding the birthday candle in the sausage for my other half's birthday celebrations! Brilliant access to all walking hotspots and a great room and bed to return to after said long walks. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return.

      just stayed at Nanny Brow what a fantastic place and fabulous location. The staff couldn't do enough for you , polite and very friendly . Very welcoming place . The room we stayed in was a perfect choice, the views from the window were perfect over the valley and the views of the mountains. The bed was very comfortable and the owner made fresh cake each day and brought to your rooms. Can't wait to stay again . The walk across the fell was fab not for the faint hearted but just as they described it . Definitely stay again
