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.
