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.

Just back from a 3 night stay incorporating the meal deal at zeffirellis for 2 nights. We have been several times and keep coming back due to the quality of the accommodation, staff and breakfasts. A wonderful, relaxing experience yet again although we didn't see Derek this time. Already missing the roasted nuts and eggs!

Anyway we booked two rooms in the outdoor annex because we had Molly & Betty our two Cav's with us. We where showed to our accommodation which... More

My husband and I recently stayed overnight at Yewfield and really enjoyed our stay. We had a pleasant room (room no 15) with a comfy bed and a lovely view. We got a very warm welcome and, as it was quiet (mid week in November) the staff arranged breakfast at a time to suit us. The breakfast was fabulous -... More

We stayed in the Mulberry Self Catering apartment next to the main house, first impressions (not forgetting the amazing view) the apartment was clean, very comfortable, had everything we needed for a 5 day stay. There was a concert the evening we arrived which we attended, a lovely dinner beforehand and a chance to sit with folk, a nice social... More

A lovely place to stay in the heart of the Lake District. Foot paths to tarn Hows straight behind, and also to hawkeshead (1/2 hour). We stayed in the Vale View room which had a fantastic jacuzzi bath and was a lovely big room with a raised bed to give you a view when you wake up. I don't think... More

We stayed in Vale View for 3 nights in October and it was one of the most beautiful rooms we've ever stayed in - large seating area, view over the hills, giant bed and massive spa bath for two. It was a genuine pleasure to come back to this room after long days on the hills. Vegetarian breakfast was lovely... More

This B & B sets the benchmark for B & B accommodation particularly if you follow a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. Yewfield is situated in a magnificent place in the beautiful Lake District. This was our third visit and will always be a place of choice to visit when we are in the UK. The accommodation and breakfasts are first class. Well... More
