Situated in 80 acres of private grounds with lovely walks from the doorstep. Whether it's a gentle stroll or a good hike to the high peaks, Yewfield offers many opportunities for exploring this unique national park. The gardens provide a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the stunning views, or on cooler days, sit by the log fire in the lounge and catch up with a good book.

Yewfield Yoga

Yewfield occasionally caters for independent yoga events but we are delighted to announce that we are now offering our own Yoga at Yewfield.

Latest update as of February 22nd 2021

On February 22nd 2021 Prime Minister published a roadmap for reopening businesses and we look forward to reopening self-catering accommodation from April 12th 2021 at the earliest.

Earliest reopening date for B&B based on the guidelines is May 17th 2021.

Both dates are subject to change and will be based on Government's announcments.

If you have a booking with us before announced reopening dates we will be in touch with you via email to rearrange your booking in the near future.

We kindly ask you to book online or send us an email as reception is unmanned at this time. You can book your stay in B&B here and your stay in a self-catering apartment here.

We all look forward to welcoming you back at Yewfield B&B and self-catering apartments!

As of January 5th 2021 England has gone in to a national lockdown, therefore we have been forced to close Yewfield self-catering apartments and postpone reopening of bed and breakfast to a later date.

The bed and breakfast and self-catering apartments will remain closed until further notice, but we are taking bookings for future dates.

We have put in place new system at Yewfield for the safety of our guests and work colleagues.

  • Complying with COVID-19 secure guidelines
  • Deep-cleaning and disinfecting rooms after each stay and maintaining high cleanliness standards throughout
  • Not providing room servicing (unless staying over 3 nights)
  • Substituting the usual breakfast with pre-order of buffet and cooked breakfast
  • Providing hand sanitisers in key areas

We will be sending out information emails 24 hours prior to guest arrival, so please make sure that you check the email you provided during the booking process.

Based on latest Government's guidelines face coverings must be worn in most hospitality venues, therefore we kindly ask you to wear a face covering when you are indoors in all shared public areas of the guest house (in corridors, on stairs, in lounge, etc.). The face covering should only be removed when eating and drinking and sat at your breakfast table.

Please note that we have moved the check in time for both B&B and self-catering apartments to 3:00 PM, you are welcome to arrive before 3:00 PM, leave your car and go for a walk or relax in the lounge. Check out is still by 11:00 AM.

You can find more information on new bed and breakfast guidelines here and self-catering guidelines - here.

As a new initiative we are making 3 new self-catering properties which makes 6 self-catering apartments in total, 3 nights min stay starting from £330.00.

This will offer peace of mind for those looking to have their own environment and yet be able to explore the Lakes.

We look forward to welcoming you at Yewfield!
