We stayed here for 2 nights, the comfortable room and en-suite bathroom were spotless. The food was excellent and the price included breakfast and a 2 course evening meal. There is a nice bar area with an open fire and an excellent pint of Loweswater gold. Must mention Jeff and all the staff at the Yewdale Inn who are all...

Many thanks for your review Nadine. We are pleased that you and your family had a great stay in Coniston. The noisy fan has now been replaced. As for the church bells, this issue has been with the church to rectify for some time now and should be dealt with soon. Most of the locals have accepted this for years...

Stayed for two nights at the Yewdale on half board basis from the Isle of Man.. Room 6 was good, clean with very comfortable bed. Breakfast and evening meals were delicious with very pleasant staff. Having hiked up Scafell Pike on the second day it was a delight to return to the Hotel on the second night knowing it would...

We ended up in the Yewdale Inn as the Black Bull was busy. I am glad it was ! We had a perfect evening at Yewdale. The bar staff and restaurant staff were attentive, but not intrusive. The food was amazing. In comparison this restaurant looked far better than our first choice. We would definitely go again. We had a...

We picked this hotel on the recommendation of TripAdvisor reports. We had been there some years ago just for a drink, and since then it has been improved greatly. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and shown up to our dual aspect room, with a good view of the Old Man. Parking is a little tricky as they only have...
