I'm vegan - the breakfast was gorgeous, with fresh smoothies, veggie sausages, tofu scramble etc. It was lovely coming back in the evenings to the fire and comfy sofas and people to chat with. My room was lovely - a four poster bed and a nice bath tub in the bathroom. I didn't book a deal with Fellinis and Zeffirellis... More

Don't be put off by 'vegetarian'. The breakfast is very substantial. Having ordered eggs, (veg) sausages, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes etc., you can help yourself to a wide range of cereals and grains, smoothies, juices and fruits, in order to prepare for a good days hiking in the surrounding countryside or simply relaxing in this beautiful Victorian house. There is a... More

The welcome at the Yewfield was warm; our room was elegant, spacious and comfortable; and the vegetarian breakfast was excellent. Cooked breakfast followed by home made bread, home made damson jam (it still had damson stones in) and a generous buffet of cereals, yogurt,... More

Friendly people, delicious vegetarian or vegan breakfast (and I am not even vegetarian), pretty country walks nearby, comfortable spacious room, lovely relaxed surroundings. The building is very impressive and there are lots of interesting bits and pieces dotted around inside. The only negative is it's a little bit hard to find. We really enjoyed being there.

Perfect location - just a short walk from the beautiful Tarn Hows. The accommodation was great for just the two of us - very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, also ended up with a bathroom each! Bed upstairs was very comfy.

Stayed again on a three night offer with two vouchers for Zeffireli's and Fellini's. You will be amazed at the tranquil setting of this wonderful vegetarian bed and breakfast hotel.
