Vegetarian Bed & Breakfast in the Heart of the Lakes
Yewfield is ideally situated for walking and enjoying this exquisite region of rare natural beauty and inspiration of the Lakeland Poets.
Set in a quiet elevated position with panoramic views over the Vale of Esthwaite, Lake Windermere and the Fells beyond, Yewfield is situated in over 80 acres of its own grounds. The house itself, with its impressive Gothic architecture dates back to 1859.
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.
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.

Gary Primrose who manages the woodland around Yewfield features in a Cumbria Woodlands case study on managing the plantation and explains the long term goal of setting up a wood fuel cycle for the house, providing chip and firewood, while converting the woodland from coniferous forest to deciduous woodland.
