    The house itself is beautiful however the lock on the front door is faulty and we were advised to leave unlocked for the duration of our stay! As we were travelling with young children this was not satisfactory. The hot water and heating did not work for the majority of our stay and we actually left earlier than planned as we got sick of taking cold showers. Also, whilst the house is in a nice spot there are no local amenities nearby and you need to drive to the nearest shops which were in Shap. Hence, I would most definitely NOT recommend this property.

    Overall very good and suited our needs very well. However ther were a few criticisms- log fires produced a lot of smoke in the rooms; a number of lights did not work esp in kitchen; the toaster only half worked; the armchair in our room was broken; a mattress needed replacing; some window catches were broken. In spite of these issues all our party enjoyed our time at Yew Tree Farm

    Lovely cottage with stunning views.

    Fantastic place for a family get together. Spectacular views. Lovely place although a few things need looking at. The general upkeep of the place needs more attention.



    out of 10

    Wonderful and unusual house but it is much in need of a makeover. It was very cold when we arrived and took several days to warm up - even then some rooms remained icy. The lounge did not benefit from underfloor heating like the rest of the ground floor and relied on a wood-burner. The main problem however was no hot water in several rooms and despite discussing this with the owner and the maintenance man it was not resolved so we left early.

    The house is a brilliant size for families and not too far from Shap and Penrith. We loved being out in the countryside although the animals woke us up early!! The rooms were a great size and lots of equipment. But there were a few things that didnt work properly like a couple of lights and the some of the toilets were dripping! My one main negative though is that my daughter contracted folliculitis from the hot tub. Just something for the owner to bear in mind! Overall a good stay. I'm not sure I'd recommend when it's very warm as we had to deal with hundreds of flies due to the warm temperature in the middle of the house. Would be lovely and cosy in winter though!
