Yew tree farm continues it's standard of excellence. The rooms are comfortable, the welcome warm and the breakfasts are delicious. There is free Wi-Fi available (a boon as the phone signal is poor), the location is great, with stunning views of the Borrowdale valley

Fantastic stay as usual, a peaceful escape from the rat race. I see some other reviewers complaining about the set breakfast time - but this is after all someone's house not a hotel. Travelodge will give you breakfast any time - but here it is actually worth waiting for.

Beautiful location; perfectly maintained, charming house with lovely en suite guest rooms. Breakfast was delicious and the proprietor very helpful. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. Will return soon!

We stayed on route of our coast to coast walk. A beautiful farm house comfortable bedroom and plenty of hot water for the bath. The breakfast was the best ever with delicious proper thick bacon and tasty sausages with black pudding in them. The breakfast room was high class with lace cloths and china and the service at breakfast great.

We stayed one night on our C2C. The location is good, the home is stunning, the breakfast lovely. The mattress wasn't the comfiest otherwise the stay was great. The WiFi didn't work at all but to be honest, it's quite nice being away from it all anyway :)

Just spent 2 days at this great B&B in Rosthwaite in the lovely Borrowdale Valley. Lovely, comfortable, spotlessly clean accommodation. All rooms are en-suite. Breakfast was a real treat and the owner and staff (especially a lady called Andrea) were very friendly and welcoming. Easily walked to the local pub for a delicious bar snack in the evening. Also ate... More

We actually went there 8yrs ago. As an extension to our honeymoon and the setting was as scenic as it gets. You can see the great gable from the front garden and the sheep graze on the slopes. The owner is v friendly. The breakfast is good and we need to revisit to relive the memories.

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
