  • "Yew Fold is a lovely property in a quiet location which is perfect for exploring the Furness peninsula, Cumbrian coast and the Lake District."

    The apartment is very well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, and is very well maintained. The hosts, Caroline and Paul, are very welcoming and helpful. I have already booked my next stay!

    The cottage was extremely clean, cosy and warm. Plenty of storage, super shower and comfortable bed. The cottage is well located to explore The Lakes. Caroline and Paul were very friendly and helpful even providing us with train information. The wine and flowers on arrival was also a lovely touch. Would highly recommend!

  • "We have now stayed at Yew Fold three times - "enough said", but we will add a little more."

    The place is spotless, warm, cosy and comfortable; it has everything you need as a couple and the rainfall shower is fab. Kirkby in Furness is in a quiet corner of the Lake District and it has a rail station which is convenient if you don't always want to use the car. Very convenient for completing the Outlying Fells, many of which are nearby.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at Yew Tree."

    We chose to stay here as we had an animal experience booked at the South Lake safari park during the week so the location was convenient for us to easily get to the park whilst not being too far for us to go exploring other sites in the Lake District. We were able to visit a few National Trust sites such as Wray Castle and Aira Force as well as some of the smaller towns like Ambleside and Coniston, all within a good distance from Yew Tree. The cottage was lovely and clean and the perfect base for us to come back to. The set up is lovely and modern and well equipped with homely amenities.

    Comfortable bed & sofa, excellent very large rainforest shower, huge TV, well equipped kitchen area, clean & modern throughout - everything you could want really. I left the car behind and took the train (Cumbrian Line) most days - you can get on & off all the way up to Carlisle with a Cumbrian Coast Day Ranger. Muncaster Castle is worth a visit, especially the Bird of Prey display & Ravenglass & Eskdale railway too.

  • "Yew Fold cottage is adjacent to the owners' home and was even better than the photos' suggested."

    We were welcomed by our host Caroline and the bottle of wine with a vase of fresh flowers on the table was a lovely start. The cottage was spotlessly clean everywhere with very new,modern appliances ; plenty of storage space for clothes,shoes, cases etc. and was very spacous. The kitchen area had everything we needed for our self-catering holiday with lots of cupboard space,new crockery,glassware, pots/pans etc.and a table & chairs. The lounge area was very comfortable with a large comfortable sofa and flat screen T.V etc . The decor everywhere in the cottage is lovely giving a light,airy feel and the bedroom has very good quality bedding, a comfortable bed and excellent lighting for night-time reading. The bathroom was modern with a large excellent walk-in shower and hot water available at any time of the day which was a plus factor. There is a little private garden area ( for your own private use )next to the cottage which has a table,chairs, BBQ with plenty of beautiful flowers which we used frequently as the weather during our weeks holiday was fantastic. Yew Fold is in a lovely area , near a main road which made travelling to other places on the Furness Peninsular very easy and we enjoyed the beautiful countryside, quiet beaches and the nearby Lake District. On leaving the cottage for home ,we overlooked a pair of walking boots and slippers which Caroline found and kindly packaged up and returned to us by post. We can say that our stay was excellent and would gladly recommend Yew Fold to other couples and hope to be back again in the Autumn. The only point I would make ( which is not a criticism in any way ) is that the cottage has a few steps up to the entrance door which might be difficult for anyone with mobility issues.

    I was therefore somewhat apprehensive about staying in someone else’s house with regards to cleanliness. We have rented cottages in the past which have been cleaner when we left then when we arrived. Of course during the current situation cleanliness is of greater importance then it would have been a few months ago. I needn’t have worried though as Yew Fold was spotless. One of the reasons we chose Yew Fold was the cleanliness mentioned by other reviewers and we were not disappointed as everything was clean and fresh. I was able to relax as soon as we arrived without feeling the need to scrub everything. The cottage is a perfect size for a couple with everything we needed and the lovely email from Caroline informed us they were only a phone call away should we have needed anything further. Kirkby in Furness gives easy access to the southern lakes and the coast, so is in an ideal situation. We shall certainly be booking Yew Fold again.

  • "I had the pleasure of staying here for a fortnight recently and can't recommend it enough."

    From the lovely greeting and bottle of wine upon arrival to the extremely high standard of finish to everything here - the bed was incredibly comfortable - pillows and mattress perfect - the shower has a shower head better than any luxury hotel I've stayed at and the kitchen better equipped than my own. Everything is walking distance - two very lovely country pubs as well as the station and all the locals, as you would expect from such an area, much like the owners, are incredibly welcoming and friendly.

  • "Yew Fold cottage was a treat!"

    A warm and friendly welcome, any information we needed was promptly give. The cottage itself was lovely, clean, and comfortable. It was a great respite for a few days near the end of our UK travels. We will (and have) recommended Yew Fold as a place to stay in the Lake District.

Just five miles away is Broughton-in-Furness, which has much to please visitors, including a cobbled square complete with a splendid horse chestnut tree, enclosed by shops, pubs and homes.
