Hotel Nanny Brow Ambleside
Nanny Brow stands majestically on the steep fell side of Loughrigg on its own private crag just west of Ambleside with unrivalled views down the River Brathay to the Lakeland Fells beyond. A short walk through semi ancient woodland takes you to a superb lookout to watch the sail boats on Windermere and a further pull takes you to Lily Tarn, Ivy Crag and miles of superb walks over Loughrigg Fell.
The house is an Arts & Crafts gem built in 1904 by the distinguished architect Francis Whitwell FRIBA.
Whitwell, who practiced with Guy Dawber in London, came to Ambleside to settle and built his family home using traditional Lakeland stone on the solid rock of Nanny Brow. This imposing country house boasts many subtle features so characteristic of the Arts & Crafts movement including gentle motifs of animals and flowers in the plasterwork, oak panelling and leaded oak picture windows facing the valley and the hills.
