Yewfield is situated at Hawkshead Hill, close to the famous Tarn Hows beauty spot, in 80 acres of private grounds with lovely walks from the doorstep.

We offer vegetarian Bed & Breakfast and self catering accommodation. There are 15 superbly appointed bedrooms and three self catering studio apartments.

Whether it’s a gentle stroll or a good hike to the high peaks, Yewfield offers many opportunities for exploring this unique area of Lakeland. 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.

The informal gardens comprise a patio garden of roses and perennials, vegetable gardens, wildflower lawns and an orchard of local apple and damson varieties. A network of paths leads through and around the gardens with benches placed in ideal locations, allowing you to take in the beautiful Lakeland views. We sell plants that we have raised ourselves, with the proceeds of the sales going back into the garden. The flowers and shrubs we grow are chosen especially to attract pollinating insects including Yewfield’s bees.

On the land we have two hay meadows that are some of the finest in the National Park. In June and July these meadows are a tapestry of species featuring yellow rattle, various orchids, knapweed, oxeye daises, eyebright and harebells. Have a look at our brilliant Gardeners’ Blog

We offer a continental vegetarian buffet including fresh fruits, muesli, cereals, home baked bread, yoghurt, preserves, including our own honey when available, coffee and teas.

This is followed by a full cooked vegetarian breakfast with a choice of free range eggs cooked to order, baked tomatoes, fried mushrooms, vegan sausage and organic baked beans.

Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.
