Old Courtyard Bar

Enjoy a locally sourced drink in our residents lounge and bar

Old Courtyard Bar

The Bar

Nanny Brow is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on or off the premises.

We offer a small selection of modestly priced local drinks including spirits, wines, traditional soft drinks, mixers, lager and real ale for you to enjoy whilst at Nanny Brow.

A residents lounge and bar has recently been re-built in the old courtyard to the rear of the property. We have retained much of the character of the original building with an outlook towards a sun trap patio and the rhododendron covered fell side.

Reclaimed Interior

An inglenook fireplace with Arts and Crafts mantlepiece and fire-screen, pews reclaimed from Ambleside Parish Church and reclaimed period tiles for the hearth.

Hand-made oak leaded windows, Shapland and Petter mirror with original copper inlay, Knoll settee and original tea canisters beautifully converted into table lamps.

Original Arts and Crafts chairs, Art Deco three-piece suite and an elegant bar cunningly disguised as an exquisite Japanese altar table.

If you would like a bottle of Champagne or Wine in your room for arrival, please let us know with as much notice as possible and we would be delighted to fulfil your request.

Rooms & Suites

Dream the night away in any of our individually designed rooms. Comfortable king beds and armchairs with flat screen television, complimentary Wi-Fi and hot drinks tray, all designed to relax the senses.
