First off- this place has an incredible location. Great views, amazing walks, incredibly quiet and dark at night. We were in a self catering apartment- basically outfitted, and a little frayed around the edges, but it suffices for a simple base to explore the area. A fresh lick of paint and a better equipped kitchen and it would have been... More

Hello Glad to hear you enjoyed the area, and thank you for the concerns I am not sure which apartment you were in but Swallows Nest did have a leak over the front door which has been repaired so maybe this was the area that could do with touching up, Sorry you found me unfriendly, and not my usual happy...

Lovely magical hotel. So calming and comfortable. Big log fires. Lovely rooms. Extremely clean. We can't wait to go back. Dinner at the related Fellini and Zefferelli's restaurants in Ambleside, only 4. Miles away. Food out of this world.

We simply cannot fault Yewfield upon all counts. This is our fourth visit and as per, within minutes of touching down, the stresses and strains of the daily grind pale into insignificance. The warmth and opulence of the home wrap their arms around you, the views mesmerise and repair the weary soul. The breakfast is plentiful and of a high... More

My partner invited me at the Vegetarian and Vegan Yewfield B&B. It is located on a hill a little bit outside Hawkshead village (few miles from Ambleside). The atmosphere is homey, with a nice and rustic fireplace opposite to comfortable sofas in the living room. We greatly appreciated a warm fire when we came back after a long/refreshing/slightly windy hike... More

This was our second stay in Yewfield and it is a wonderful place to enjoy the peace and beauty of the Lakes. As it is only a 10 minute walk from the indescribably beautiful Tarn Hows makes it a major draw card. Yewfield is a beautiful building set in gorgeous grounds which all added to make for a positive experience.... More

We stayed for 3 nights using the midweek deal. This enabled us to have a 3 course meal in zeferellis as well as a 2 course meal at fellinis plus cinema ticket included. Yewfield is a beautiful bed and breakfast with friendly staff and a stunning location. The breakfast spread was delicious and the homemade smoothie was a nice touch.... More

Yewfield is located on a large rural estate a few miles outside of Ambleside, in the heart of the Lake District. It's a great place for vegan or any travelers, especially those who are looking to explore the surroundings on foot. Town is just minutes away by car via a narrow country road, or, if you're a walker, you can... More

Stayed in the Mulberry self catering apartment. Apartment is of a good size, well heated, peaceful and has a cottege feel. The guesthouse grounds and its proximity to Tarn Hows are great bonuses. We had breakfast in the main house on two days which was good too. The carpet in the lounge/bedroom is stained and the kitchen floor needs attention... More

What a wonderful place. It simply oozes character and tranquility. Huge breakfast room/lounge, wood burning stove, Steinway grand piano ....... so relaxed and peaceful. I cannot find a single negative thing to say - OK, the roads are too narrow for two cars, there! Will definitely return again.

This is a lovely place to stay because it has wonderfully traditional larger sized rooms, even a four poster bed for those lucky few! The staff are both very kindly and caring for guests, so it's very hard not to soon be relaxed when staying here. There are some beautiful walks close by, with some spectacular views, so you really... More
