We just stopped off here having read reviews of the quality of the Herdy meat. Lovely spot but did not have time to explore. Ian ,who does the butchery, was extremely knowledgeable about the produce ( Herwick lamb and Galloway beef reared slowly on the lakeland pastures)and also showed us the boxes that they use, lined with herdwick wool insulation,...

Didn't stay, but did call in for some sirloin steaks and hoggett steaks - all of which were delicious. Locally sourced, and the barn and farm are so atmospheric - a beautiful spot keeping the Lakes alive. Long may it continue!

We enjoyed our stay at Yew Tree Farm while walking the Coast to Coast. Lots of history, and very quaint. Our room was comfortable, and the bathroom a decent size. Advice on where to have dinner was appreciated, and breakfast the next morning was very good.

You will be welcomed as one of the family as soon as you appear at the door. The rooms are well appointed and homely. Breakfast has plenty of choice including a belly busting Full Cumbrian. An excellent stay.

For several years walkers could stop at Yew Tree Farm for refreshments in the garden of the cottage. This facility was withdrawn a couple of years ago for some reason and is a great miss to many. It was an ideal stopping off point if walking from Coniston either as a resting stop before proceeding up to Tarn Hows or...

The main feature of this B&B was that the rooms had been upgraded to include en suite facilities, even though the room wasn't large enough to accommodate them; indeed we barely had room for our cases. Breakfast is provided, as is packed lunch on request (expensive and very ordinary sandwiches) but for other meals there is a pub in the...

Still a bit niggled by the huge mark up that the letting agents place on school holidays, however the house and setting are wonderful. Clean, well equipped and warm and cosy. A few simple things such as bin bags, loo rolls, logs could have been a little more plentiful considering the price - however returning each afternoon to the cottage...

Unfortunately the cottage is looking tired the soft furnishings need cleaning and the cushions and pillows have lost their plumpness. The single beds are okay for a child to sleep in but not for an adult as the mattresses are very thin and lumpy. The farmer has control over the heating and was reluctant to put it on thus leaving...

I've known this place for over 30 years and never imagined I would stay here. The historical associations with Beatrix Potter are everything and no doubt inflate the rental price, but it is worth it. Things you need to know: 1. Parking good for a couple of cars. 2. No public transport and Coniston is 2 miles away. 3. Great...

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful historic house nestled in the glorious lake district hillside with fabulous walks right on the doorstep. The house was very atmospheric and warm and the hosts John and Jo extremely helpful. The meat from the farm (especially the lamb chops) was first class. It was wonderful to walk around the farm and...

“It's an old house, it's going to creak and groan no matter what. The road is quiet, it's way out in the country, any of the rooms should be fine, but read about their differences on-line and then decide.”
