B&B and Self Catering Apartments

Yewfield hosts classical and contemporary jazz concerts with exceptional musicians from around the world. Most of these evenings are free and open to all with just a collection at the door or with a pre concert supper option.
Lake District Walk to Tarn Hows
Yewfield is situated in 80 acres of private grounds with lovely walks from the house to Tarn Hows, a well known and popular destination in the Lake District.
The extensive grounds around the house include native woodland, rough fell pasture, a small tarn and a stream. The grazed pasture is carefully managed giving priority to ecological considerations, which qualifies it to be part of the Environmentally Sensitive Areas Scheme.
Organic vegetable gardens
Newly developed ornamental areas closer to the house include organic vegetable gardens, orchards, a herb patio and a mixed border. We are also experimenting with naturalistic styles and plantings such as a coppice garden, wildflower meadows, a fern corner and a wildlife pond.
A nature trail through the land and gardens guides the visitor through the grounds.
All the heating and hot water for the Yewfield estate is provided by our own woodland, which is thinned by using horses to bring out the wood.
Our vegetarian breakfast
We offer a continental vegetarian buffet including fresh fruits, muesli, cereals, home baked bread, yoghurt, preserves, coffee and teas, and a full cooked vegetarian breakfast using locally sourced organic produce and ingredients where possible.
