Susan Robinson moved to Nanny Brow in 2009 and since then, has worked tirelessly to create an establishment that fully reflects her desire to create a luxurious and peaceful boutique location in the heart of the English Lake District.
Set in five acres of grounds, Nanny Brow sits on its own crag, with unrivalled views of the Brathay Valley, the hills behind Tarn Hows, Wrynose Pass and the high fells of Langdale. Built in 1904 by renowned local architect, Francis Whitwell, Nanny Brow is an Arts & Crafts property in the Lake District and attracts guests and visitors from all over the world.
With 17 bedrooms, 14 of which have undergone a complete refurbishment, Nanny Brow caters for those seeking a five-star experience and can also cater for special occasions, such as intimate weddings, being fully licensed.
Period oak panelling and beautifully crafted furniture are offset by luxuriously modern en-suite bathrooms, beds, free wireless internet and digital television.
Their award-winning breakfasts are served in the original dining room. They use the best ingredients the region and season have to offer and are proud to source most of what they serve within 20 miles of Ambleside.
Built using traditional Lakeland stone on the solid rock of Nanny Brow, this imposing boutique country house boasts many subtle features characteristic of the Arts & Crafts movement, including gentle motifs of animals and flowers in the plasterwork, oak panelling and leaded oak picture windows facing the valley and the hills.
