The room was spotless, comfortable and spacious with fantastic views. We had plenty of seating in our room to choose from - a sofa, chaise and a chair - so much more than B&Bs usually offer.... More

The weekend of the Tour de France was perfect and it was a delight to see happy and excited guests here. The reviewer is correct about our geographical location - very central to so much of what North Yorkshire has to offer and easily accessible. The Tour de France has made us even more keen to see cyclists here and... More

There are three things to experience in a guest house, hospitality, food and environment and The Elmfield is excellent in all these areas. Ian and Astra are both friendly and helpful,... More
