Welcome to Yew Tree Farm
We look forward to welcoming you to Yew Tree Farm. Come and escape for a few days, relax, walk in this beautiful unspoilt valley ideally placed in the very heart of Lakeland.
Stay with us
Welcome to our home. Take in the views, the wide open spaces and then relax and unwind in one of three en-suite guest rooms. It’s a world you won’t want to leave.
Long before Beatrix Potter adopted the Herdwick sheep they roamed freely over the Lakeland landscape for over 1000 years and to this day enjoy a full life growing on the beautiful fells of Borrowdale.
Yew Tree Farm, Rosthwaite, Borrowdale, Cumbria
Situated just six and half miles south of Keswick in the awe inspiring Borrowdale Valley, Yew Tree Farm has much to offer. If it’s a few nights peace and relaxation you are looking for then why not try our Bed & Breakfast? Or, if you happen to be passing why not pop in for light refreshments at our Flock-In tearoom, where we also stock our delicious range of Herdwicks – raised and prepared here on the farm.
And if it’s something a little different you would like to try then why not book on one of our Fellfarm Experiences where you get to spend time with Joe, a third generation Fell Farmer, the Herdwick sheep and the farm dogs, learning all about a year in the life of the farm. Don’t just admire the scenery – be part of it!
Yew Tree Farm offers very much a traditional, personal service in, and on, a traditional Borrowdale farm, set in just the most amazing location. Although we prefer the sound of conversation and phone calls to the silence of email and text, this rural idyll is not completely without technology as WiFi is available in the B&B rooms of the farmhouse and we are quite happy to answer any email query if that’s what you prefer to use.
We are retiring in November 2015
Due to Retirement this will be our last season at Yew Tree. We’d like to extend a Huge Thank You for the support we have had from our Friends and Staff (who have become friends) – we couldn’t have done it without you. Truly and finally to all our Guests at the B&B, customers in the Tearoom and Herdwick Fans we ‘Thank Ewe’ for making the last 30 years full of amazing memories. Joe and Hazel.
Rosthwaite in Borrowdale
The village of Rosthwaite has a local pub and a number of excellent restaurants within a very short drive, but if it’s the bright-lights of town-life you are seeking then just six and a half miles north in Keswick, there are many pubs, restaurants, take-ways, a cinema, the wonderful Theatre by the Lake, museums and retail outlets galore. There’s even a regular local bus service – great for travelling out so you can, perhaps, walk back.
