As you pull up the drive to Yewfield you leave all your problems behind. We have had the good fortune to be able to stay here on a number of occasions both by ourselves in the main house and with our labrador in the self catering apartments. Both options are wonderful. We love it here not only because of the... More

Beautiful guesthouse with lovely rooms. Excellent vegetarian breakfast. All set in stunning grounds in the most amazing place. Have run out of superlatives now but will definitely return and recommend to others.

This was our third visit to Yewfield and as always we were made to feel very welcome. In a lot of ways we feel we are coming home when we arrive! Breakfasts are fantastic with lots of choice, home made bread, fresh fruit, yoghurt and of course a cooked breakfast as well. It really does set you up for the... More

I have been going to Yewfield every year since 1994, a sort of a pilgrimage for long walks in the lakes. I consider it to be the best B&B place in the lakes. Reasonable prices, wonderful views of nature, lovely walks straight from the house ( check out Tarn Haus), only 15 mins walk away and it is magical place... More

Contrary to another recent reviewer, I found Yewfield to be a really friendly place, with attentive staff who did everything they could to make our stay 5 *****! The place is stylish with lovely furnishings, brilliant bathrooms and views of the wonderful surrounding countryside from most of the rooms. The gardens are beautiful; a place to retreat to with a...

Great location outside Ambleside and lovely hotel with high quality of rooms. Absolutely no issues with the hotel itself as was kept in great condition. Unfortunately the staff were incredibly rude. The first morning we were woke up at 630am to which we complained. When we complained there was no apology, instead they just huffed and puffed as if this... More

I am very sorry some things did not go too well with your stay here at Yewfield. I was away when you visited but I have now had a chance to speak to Sue. Upon your arrival you requested to change to a larger room. As it was a bank holiday the only room available was a suite which would... More

Warm welcome when we arrived, we got very lost so finally found somewhere with signal and the receptionist was very helpful and we got there eventually. Chatted to the manager who was very friendly, explained if we needed anything to press the call button in the lobbey and someone would be with us, did this a few times and the... More

Really nice accommodation, welcoming staff. Room good size with expensive decor. Breakfast very good, but perhaps could be available til 10 instead of 9am? Peaceful location but close enough to drive into Ambleside for the evening.

This is a marvellous place to stay. It is well situated in its own, very beautiful grounds (although personal transport is a must, I think). It's quiet and relaxing; a little haven. The room we stayed in was set apart from the main building, private, comfortable, beautifully furnished and impeccably clean. Breakfast was delicious and it was a delight to... More

Stayed here recently when visiting Hawkshead. We are not vegetarians, but were absolutely blown away by this place. Superb location, fantastic room. great staff and a fascinating house. Tarn Hows is only a short walk and the grounds themselves are good enough to spend time exploring. Breakfast was plentiful with enough choice to keep mpst people happy. Will definitely visit... More
