We stayed in Yewfield B&B for three nights in June, and it was among the best long stays we had taken in a long time. The place is just beautiful, peaceful and given the long days, enabled nice long walks soaking the beautiful sun and the greenery all around. The food was completely vegetarian - wholesome and GREAT! Just wished... More

Yewfield is a sizeable operation but rather than being impersonal, it is characterful and well run. The large main house is surrounded by lovely gardens, where time and thought is clearly going into the plantings and design. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely, with a good choice, (all vegetarian of course.) The owner has supplied an excellent walk... More

The place is lovely, clean, quiet with a good simple breakfast and beatiful gardens. My only niggle was that there was no one on reception when we arrived, just a key left in an envelope. This was ok, although I do like to at least say hello to someone when I arrive. There was no welcome pack in the room... More

Many many bed and breakfasts in the uk, all trying to achieve a standard that will hit the spot with their guests. I do not like gushing reviews.....get ready....The Yewfield is a near perfect experience. A beautiful location in a smart building well kept, surrounded by lovely gardens, clean, quiet, interesting and well judged decor. Staff are available if you... More

We stayed at Yewfield for four nights last week and we were so impressed we returned this week for a five night stay. The staff are fantastic they are so friendly, nothing seems too much trouble for them. Breakfast is very good (thank you Anna) and the accommodation is very clean. One of the best things about this B&B is... More

Stayed for 2 nights june 15th and 16th. Once we found it by car from Ambleside we couldn't get over how peaceful and quiet it is. Deep in the countryside and high in the hills from Ambleside there is no traffic to disturb you. The rooms are well furnished and the breakfast very good for veggie eaters. We spent both... More

Stayed here before the Coniston marathon, which involved being out of the B&B at 5am. The owner sorted out leaving things for breakfast to get me started....so not only was the room we stayed in large, well-appointed and very clean, but the people running the place go out of their way to help their guests (and were very friendly)

Yewfield has a country house hotel ambience in a beautiful location looking out over the extensive grounds across the valley to the fells beyond. We took advantage of the excellent value mid-week deal, combining a 3 night B&B stay with 2 dinners at Fellini's and Zefirelli's, the excellent vegetarian restaurants in Ambleside also owned by Derek. Everything is done well... More

Had a couple of nights over the May bank holiday and it was so peaceful and relaxed. Slept solidly both nights - a rarity even at home - and woke to birdsong and gentle rain. Rooms are warm and comfortable with good soft furnishings. Staff are friendly, polite and consistently cheerful and welcoming. Atmosphere is calm and serene with gentle... More

beautiful building decorated with beautiful furniture! When you walk in and pass the reception, you immediately feel the warmth of the place with a cozy fireplace! The walk to Tarn Hows started just two minutes from the B&B which was perfect. There were other walks closely as well.
