Nanny Brow, Ambleside Bed and Breakfast


Welcome to Nanny Brow, a luxury B&B in the Lake District.

Nanny Brow sits on its own private crag just west of Ambleside with majestic views down the Brathay valley. With direct fellside access for walkers it’s just minutes from the stunning scenery of the Langdale Valleys.

Sue and Peter have researched and uncovered the origins of Nanny Brow and have compiled a book which is available to all guests, that explores the history of this Arts and Crafts gem. Architectural drawing, photos and painting can be found hanging on the walls including a copy of Whitwell’s detailed painting which depicts the house he wanted to build before searching for the land in which to build on.

The main house bedrooms all enjoy a beautiful antique bed, period furniture complimented with modern fabrics. Complimentary hot drinks tray, easy chair, flat screen digital television with radio. Ensuite with walk in power shower and luxury bathroom products.

The residents lounge and bar which has recently been re-built in the old courtyard to the rear of the property is a lovely place to sit and relax whist looking out towards the sun trap patio and the rhododendron covered fell side.
