We spent one night at the hotel staying in a room at the cottage situated just at the back of the hotel (last rooms available). Nice room, it was a bit chilly when we arrived probably caused by a little temporary fault on the termostat...but we said it at reception and when we got back from dinner a nice and... More

We booked here on a three night package, on a recommendation from a friend. We are not vegetarian. Rooms were nice, as were the views, the communal areas and gardens. Breakfast was very nice, help yourself to yoghurt/ fruits etc and order your choice of cooked breakfast. Road up to the hotel is small and winding, a bit scary for... More

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend in Rowan room, which isn't in the main hotel building - it's on the ground floor of the annex. Fabulous room that has been furnished to a high standard. Huge king size bed with built-in wardrobe & furniture. Sofa & TV also in the room on a slightly lower level than the... More

The room was clean, quiet and had a modern feel to it. There are not many facilities on site but we weren't looking for 5 star service and luxury. There are so many options for walks from your room or just simply explore Tarn Howes. Breakfast was an excellent continental style selection both vegan and vegetarian as you'd expect. Although...

We have just returned from our 5th visit to Yewfield which probably says it all! Staying in the Rowan Suite (which has started to feel like home) we love the friendly and welcoming nature of this beautiful place with its friendly team and glorious views which give you a sheer sense of peace and tranquility. Breakfast is plentiful and vegetarian... More

We stayed in a pleasant room at the back of the hotel, with a view overlooking the gardens. We were thankful to have a bath as well as a shower, to have a soak after long days spent walking. The breakfast buffet was lovely, with plenty of choice for us (two vegetarians). There was also gluten free toast available. It... More

A really nice setting in a pieceful area. Walks direct from the hotel to the tarn and surrounding fells. The breakfast buffet had lots of choces and the cooked breakfast was well prepared. The home made bread was excellent and the coffee good too.

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
