Yew Tree Farm with its distinctive ‘spinning gallery’ is in the beautiful Lake District, in a stunning picturesque setting, it is ideally located for all Lakeland activities. The farmhouse was built in 1690 and is one of the most photographed farms in the North.
Yew Tree was owned by Beatrix Potter in the 1930s and is still home to many of her furnishings. Yew Tree Farm featured as ‘Hill Top’ in the movie ‘Miss Potter’ starring Rene Zellweger.
We are now offering luxury self catering accommodation in the main farmhouse. This means guests will have the unique opportunity to experience the famous farmhouse as a holiday cottage with all the charm, character and attention to detail you would expect from a Yew Tree Farm accommodation offering.
Unfortunately this means there will no longer be Bed and Breakfast accommodation available.
You can take a break from the modern world and enjoy relaxing in this historic holiday cottage as if you have taken a step back in time. Yew Tree is a working farm so expect to be surrounded by animals and take advantage of the delicious home grown produce.
At Yew Tree Farm we offer a very special experience, a warm welcome awaits.
You can now book a 'Herdwick Experience'. An exclusive opportunity to go to parts of the farm not accessable to the general public and spend time with a special little flock of Herdwick sheep who genuinly love fuss and attention. And feeding!
