Meet The Team

A Big Family

Peter and Sue Robinson‘s ethos is simple, to provide the relaxing air of an elegant family home with excellent levels of comfort and service. Peter and Sue work within the business, supported by a close and long standing team.

The team also includes our four legged companions, Myffy and Josh our two border collies and Kiwi the cat. Myffy is tricoloured and the older and more knowledgeable one, who will play a game of fetch with you for hours whereas Josh, our playful youngster, will try and give you a kiss and persuade you to take him for a walk. Kiwi, our outdoor cat enjoys a good cuddle and giving guided tours around our grounds and woodlands.

Sue and Peter Robinson fell in love with Nanny Brow the first time they saw it, in their hearts, they could see the potential of this tired and neglected old house. In 2009, Peter and Susan Robinson became custodians of 'Nanny Brow' and it's sculpted history and began restoration work to breathe life back into the building. The restoration was a labour of love and it took two years for Peter and Susan to accomplish their vision of a luxury bed and breakfast, with 14 individually designed en-suite bedrooms that embodied the creativity with which 'Nanny Brow' was originally built.

In recognition of their accomplishments they have received the following awards:

  • Top Finalist for Family Business of the Year 2016
  • Ranked in Top 20 Hotels in the North West of England, 2015 by Trivago
  • Top Five Finalist for Front of House Manager of the Year, 2015
