We spent a lovely Easter weekend at Yewfield. We chose this guesthouse because we wanted somewhere that would cater to vegans, and they did not disappoint! There was so much choice for breakfast - we didn't miss out on anything (even getting scrambled tofu in place of eggs!). We were in the Juniper room, which was fantastic - plenty of...

Pleasantly surprised by how nice this place was. We had a standard room and it was a great size, huge bed, large en-suite - the room was beautifully presented. The building itself is huge, clean and spacious and set in lovely gardens. We walked down to Hawkshead in the evening for a pub meal. Nice 25 mins walk, but pitch...

Went for the mid-week offer. Great value for money with the restaurant offer. Great place to stay, friendly staff, good breakfast options. Would recommend to especially vegetarians coming to the area. Would go again.

Yewfield is a gothic grey stone manor tucked into the hills outside Hawkshead. My wife and I arrived on a cold, wet March afternoon to be greeted by the delicious smoky smell of a wood fire burning in the lounge. The small reception desk was unstaffed but there was an envelope marked with our name containing a key and directions...

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...
