We had a four night stay at the end of August because of a cancellation and really enjoyed it. Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds - we had the first two nights in the twin bedded room although at 6'4" tall the bath is on the tight side. The middle room is the nicest with a good sized en suite and... More

As someone who normally stays in camping barns and hostels, I don't feel qualified to properly judge the accommodation, other than to say I thought it was well presented and very nice overall. It is most certainly an old cottage with character though, so don't be surprised by low ceilings, doors that don't quite shut properly, and anything else you... More

Yew Tree Farm B&B in Borrowdale is an ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE of mine! I have stayed here 8 times in the last 7 years, as I find it is such a wonderful place to escape to, and I’ve met a number of fellow guests who have also been paying return visits for the same reason. The setting of the B&B is... More

Its difficult to enthuse about Yew tree farm because we barely got to know it. We slept in the bed, and had breakfast, but there was no real interaction with our hosts, the introduction to our room was cursory and we saw no one until breakfast, - we were told what time breakfast was, in contrast with most of the...

This home was adorable. The rooms were quaint and cozy. The bed was incredibly comfortable - slept like a baby. The staff were very accommodating. This place was great value - by far the best place to stay in Borrowdale.

We stayed for 3 nights in June. Carole greeted us on arrival and instantly made us feel welcome. We missed the pub food by 5 minutes but she made us a hearty snack with home made cake and rolls from the tea room opposite. The Riverside Bar stops food at 9pm so after a 6.5 hour drive from surrey this... More

We just spent a very relaxing weekend here, on the way home we felt like we'd had a week's holiday we were so relaxed! Very welcoming, very comfortable, lovely farmhouse bedroom, en suite shower and WC, great breakfast, I'm on a special diet, which was no problem whatsoever. Big area inside the front door for leaving muddy/wet footwear. We're definitely... More

The title says it all. We enjoyed a two night stay and this fitted the bill. Our room was a wee bit cold but the bed was superb and once in we were as warm as toast. The comfortable lounge downstairs with it's natural look 'gas' fire was great for catching up on emails/browsing the web on the free WIFI.... More
