Nanny Brow sits majestically on its own private crag just west of Ambleside with unrivalled views down the River Brathay to the Lakeland Fells beyond. We have direct fellside access for walkers and are minutes from the stunning scenery of the Langdale Valley.

We have sought to combine the relaxing air of a family home with excellent levels of comfort and service.

Many of the original arts and crafts features have been retained and complemented with antique furniture and contemporary fabrics, as well as modern touches. You will find our accommodation spotlessly clean, warm and spacious with friendly service and an award-winning breakfast.

Our king-sized beds exude comfort and the rooms are complemented by armchairs, flatscreen Free-sat television, internet access and hot drinks trays, all designed to relax your senses. All rooms are en-suite with a powerful shower; the two main suites also have roll-top baths.
