Fodor's Expert Review Nanny Brow

Clappersgate, , LA22 9NF, England

Outside Ambleside toward the Langdales, this smart guesthouse feels more like a hotel, with a huge lounge, named rooms, antique furniture, and award-winning breakfasts. The imposing building has original Arts and Crafts features, such as old fireplaces, which have been uncovered and restored by the owner. The house's extensive grounds give direct access to Loughrigg Fell.
