Maximum average, rooms okay, but with old furniture, we had to fix the slattet frames in the beds, tv didn't work properly, host was not there at all, wants to sell the house, which makes everything clear, housekeeper was okay but not very firendly, breakfast okay but everything hat an careless touch

We were part of a group of 3 couples doing the C2C. We had the room on the upper floor with two single beds which were extremely uncomfortable.The mattresses were extremely soft and better suited for children.Our wet hiking shoes were left in the hallway overnight and remained wet in the morning The breakfast was wonderful

We stayed at Yew Crags on the coast to coast walk and we were well looked after. Wet clothing was dried and somewhere to dry boots. A few minor things could be improved but generally everything you need.

Lovely B&B, great breakfast. Stayed here in late September 2012. We arrived wet after a rain soaked walk. Boots and coats were taken away to dry. Only 5 miniutes walk into the village. Very friendly beautifully situated next to the river. Free WiFi in the breakfast room. Would certainly be my choice to stay here again when in the area

Not the easiest place to find. This has everything you need but there is nothing special about the place. The guest house is up for sale maybe that is why. I can't complain about anything at all, but I wouldn't chose to stay there again. The staff who came in, in the morning were lovely as was our hostess. But... More

As we came off our second day on the Wainwright Coast-to-Coast, we were stopped in the road by a woman in a car who was from Yew Craggs - it was Lucy and she wanted to offer a ride to save our tired feet for the remaining few miles. We declined and she went up to the Honister hostel in... More

Lovely location on riverside at edge of Rosthwaite village and only a short stroll to venue for evening meal. Excellent and hospitable accommodation. Very good sized room and wonderful shower. Very comfortable and great breakfast and packed-lunch. Understands requirements of walkers. Highly recommended.

Bed and breakfast were ok. Less so the staff and in particular the landlady - hence only average

We stayed there while walking a short day on the Cumbria Way - given the distance we probably should have gone straight through to Keswick (only an extra approx 3 hours). However the stay at Yew Craggs was excellent - welcoming host, large comfortable room, nice bathroom, nice breakfast. The pub is just down the road for dinner - had... More
