Hawkshead Hill LA22 0PR 01539 436 765
The owners of Zeffirellis and Fellinis vegetarian restaurants in Ambleside also offer guest rooms in their desirable Victorian Gothic mansion, a couple of miles outside Hawkshead and set in its own mature gardens, woodland and grounds. It’s an extremely quiet, secluded spot, with some lovely rooms, while the house decor reflects the owners’ worldwide travels. Gentle walks lead straight from the door (they have their own nature trail, wildflower meadows and ponds) and there’s a big veggie buffet breakfast to set you up for the day.
Despite being slap bang in the middle of tourist territory, Yewfield is set in its own large grounds atop a hill, so feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. Luxury accommodation is either in the house or in attached self-catering units. Large lounge with comfy sofas and real fire in the winter. Delicious cooked vegetarian breakfast. Wander down the hill for dinner, or better still, drive to one of their two veggie restaurants nearby. Lovely walks from the door. Highly recommended.
