The room was beautfiul and the setting is really perfect, so peaceful with wonderful walks right from the door. Breakfast was really delicious, great choice of smoothies, juices, cereals, yoghurts and cooked breakfast. The atmosphere there is so relaxing, it really does recharge your batteries. Can't wait to go again!

Yewfield Vegetarian Guest House in Ambleside (Check in was at 2). It is down some lovely single tracked country lanes. It is a beautiful building in the middle of the countryside.

Thank you for the review Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, sorry you found the room chilly all I can think is that we had some problem with a motorised valve and room 8 was affected because normally that room is very warm. With best wishes Derek

I'm vegan - the breakfast was gorgeous, with fresh smoothies, veggie sausages, tofu scramble etc. It was lovely coming back in the evenings to the fire and comfy sofas and people to chat with. My room was lovely - a four poster bed and a nice bath tub in the bathroom. I didn't book a deal with Fellinis and Zeffirellis...

Don't be put off by 'vegetarian'. The breakfast is very substantial. Having ordered eggs, (veg) sausages, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes etc., you can help yourself to a wide range of cereals and grains, smoothies, juices and fruits, in order to prepare for a good days hiking in the surrounding countryside or simply relaxing in this beautiful Victorian house. There is a...

We booked the three night mid week break including dinner at Fellinis and Zeffirellis in Ambleside. The welcome at the Yewfield was warm; our room was elegant, spacious and comfortable; and the vegetarian breakfast was excellent. Cooked breakfast followed by home made bread, home made damson jam (it still had damson stones in) and a generous buffet of cereals, yogurt,...

Friendly people, delicious vegetarian or vegan breakfast (and I am not even vegetarian), pretty country walks nearby, comfortable spacious room, lovely relaxed surroundings. The building is very impressive and there are lots of interesting bits and pieces dotted around inside. The only negative is it's a little bit hard to find. We really enjoyed being there.

Perfect location - just a short walk from the beautiful Tarn Hows. The accommodation was great for just the two of us - very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, also ended up with a bathroom each! Bed upstairs was very comfy. Staff were polite and helpful, offering us maps and access to the dvd/book/music library at the main house....
