“We spent a most enjoyable night at Yewfield.”

We have stayed at Yewfield several time previously, but this was the first time we attended a concert too. The supper we had before the concert was delicious, and very good value for money. The concert was excellent, our room clean, comfortable and well appointed and the breakfast was very good.
