Avoid this place.
At GBP200 per night, this place should be avoided. Bed uncomfortable, location inconvenient but the main issue is the stupid rules they impose (not mentioned at the time the property was booked, I might add). Breakfast only served within a 30 minute window (0830-0900) on weekdays and 45 minutes on weekends (0830-0915). Takeaway food is totally forbidden on the premises (penalties and expulsion threatened). Yet they don't offer food themselves after breakfast. They do offer to serve you a drink from the bar but you have to ring a number as the place isn't staffed most of the time. These people should not be hospitality sector operators. On the plus side, bathroom great, wifi decent but it should only be used as a last resort. Definitely not wheelchair friendly for those that need that.

Mmm it was alright ....
The bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever NOT slept in, as I didn’t sleep due to the bed. Place is clean, breakfast was alright - but I don’t think it was 5* but then again sleep is a massive thing for me.

Can't recommend this beautiful Arts and Crafts guesthouse highly enough. We were made very welcome and enjoyed our chats with Sue during our stay. Room was lovely, comfortable, beautifully decorated with lots of thoughtful touches that we appreciated. Breakfast was delicious and all the team working at Nanny Brow were delightful. Thankyou - we really enjoyed our stay with you.

Amazing B&B with very nice suites and just at the right distance from the nearby cities. In short it is the perfect place to have some rest.
