Yet another wonderful few days in beautiful surroundings. Astra and Ian could not be more welcoming and we have yet to find anywhere better than this guest house. The bedroom was very comfortable, with everything that a traveller might need provided for. The most delicious cooked breakfast alongside cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast etc did not disappoint, we had been looking... More

My husband and I recently toured yorkshire for 10 days staying at B & B's. Elmfield House was by far our favourite. From the moment we arrived we felt like family. Astra welcomed us with tea, home made cake and a friendly chat. The house is in a really beautiful area and a perfect location to visit the surrounding countryside.... More

We stayed at Elmfield House and can't rate it enough! It was perfect from moment we walked through the door to moment we left. The room was immaculate and attention to detail was amazing.

After the most thoughtful hospitality on arrival by Ian who offered us liquid refreshment and cake we were taken to our lovely clean and comfortable room with 4 poster bed and stunning views. The breakfast was superb and both Ian and Astra were very friendly, and we were sorry when it was time to go. They advised on good places... More

What a wonderful reception we received from Ian on arrival. Tea & homemade cakes were a lovely touch. The rooms were homely, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was a full meal in itself, from the quality produce to the homemade bread nothing could be faulted. Would definitely stay again and recommend for a peaceful break and a good location...

This was a weekend walking break for my partner and I, and a treat for my parents. Things got off to a fantastic start when we arrived at the lovely, peaceful place. A warm welcome from Ian with a nice glass of chilled wine to start the weekend after a good 10 mile walk before arriving. After Ian's advice on... More

We booked two nights as a combined birthday/Christmas gift and are so glad we did. Astra and Ian were delightful hosts who instantly made us feel welcome, relaxed and totally looked after. We soon felt like we'd known them for years! We had the Field room with an extra fold out bed for our daughter. The room is huge with... More

This is a lovely B&B in a very peaceful countryside location but close to the A1 and very convenient for the lovely market town of Bedale.

I stayed here due to work commitments, but it was fantastic and I'd be very happy to return for leisure. The hosts, Ian and Astra, were very friendly and easy going.

Really nice people who made us feel very much at home. Good local knowledge means you're never short of a recommendation for somewhere to visit or dine. My breakfast included black pudding, fried bread and a perfectly fried egg - the holy trinity of an excellent weekend fry-up (bangers and bacon were great too) - making it a terrific start... More
