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.
