An amazing stay of three nights, which included two meals at vegetarian restaurants in Ambleside, about 5 miles drive away. Fellini's was especially good! The house at Yewfield has the most amazing peaceful feeling about it which you sense as soon as you enter. Nicely decorated room, lots of space, comfortable bed, hot shower. Breakfast was delicious. My only regret... More

This is a great place to stay in South Lakes, we only stayed for a short break but it would be very comfortable for a longer stay. The house and outbuildings are set in a beautiful area, with pleasant views and plenty of peace and quiet. The atmosphere is laid back and the staff all seemed very friendly and helpful.... More

My wife and I had to find a bed and breakfast establishment very quickly and July is perhaps not the easiest month in the Lakes to achieve this however we were bowled over by Yewfield. We had walked past Yewfield many times over the years but little did we know what a gem it is. Comfort, cleanliness and an immaculate... More

We had a superb long weekend at Yewfield. Our first night was spent in the Tower room - well worth the premium for the unique architecture and vista (its stunning!). We spent our second night in Room 6, which was very comfortable, with an excellent four poster bed, Whilst not being vegetarians ourselves, breakfast was delicious, with a good range... More

We really enjoyed our stay in The Swallows Nest at Yewfield Bed & Breakfast. The cottage is well equipped, and there is a nice walk to Tarn Hows starting at your front door. Derreck was very helpfull and the vegetables from the vegetable garden tasted really good. Definatly a place to come back to.

Since the guesthouse was described as vegetarian, my partner and I where lead to believe that it was more than just bed and breakfast. The website refers to two restaurants both of which are about 4 miles away which we didn't know although careful inspection of the website would have enlightened us. We find it quite strange to put emphasis... More

Hello Stuart Sorry to hear you were disappointed, We only ever advertise that we are a vegetarian guest house and never anything more as we would never want to mislead guests. You asked if you could have dinner at the house to which I explained that we do B&B only, but that evening we had a classical concert in the... More

We recently stayed for the fourth time at Yewfield and the standard is always first class. Derek and the staff always look after our vegan requirements with little extra touches which always make our stay special and they even posted my coat to me when I left it behind! Breakfast is plentiful and delicious with full cooked and continental options... More

Oh wow. A beautiful property, tastefully made contemporary with a superb balance of ancient & modern. The grounds are beautifully kept, with wild areas contrasting with the more formal, giving the appearance of several different rooms that one can enter & enjoy. But that's the outside. You want to know more about the inside: we had a wonderfully warm welcome... More

Me and wife and a couple (our friends ) went for Yoga retreat for 2 nights stay. We had wonderful break. Food was vegetarian and stay was comfortable. Nothing luxurious.Bathroom was small and no attached mirror near our sink and difficult to shave. But yoga and walking was very rewarding and enjoyable.
