My wife chose Nanny Brow for our last minute 3 night visit to the Lake District. I thought it looked good but expensive but within a few minutes, she persuaded me to book 4 nights (last one half price for mid-week say) in the Skelwith room. As it turned out she made a good decision. At the risk of repeating what previous guests have said, the following were excellent:
Cleanliness - pretty close to perfect( rooms cleaned whilst at breakfast)
Room - well appointed, classy & tasteful
View - the view from our room window on the 1st floor at the front was stunning
Staff- attentive, friendly, professional and most importantly showed pride in their work
Owners - rightly proud of their establishment, worked hard and very friendly
We generally never go to anywhere twice, as according to my trip advisor account, I have only seen 7% of the world. With 93% to go, this is the closest I have come to potetially breaking the rule so far, so maybe my wife will persuade me to in the near future?
Overall, I can't overstate my recommendation as Nanny Brow for an upmarket Lake District break.
P.s. I forgot the cake - a different excellent slice a cake appears by miracle ( cake elves) in the room each day
