Yet another wonderful weekend at this exceptional guesthouse. The welcome was warm and friendly as always and the advice on places to visit invaluable. The location is beautiful and so quiet, ideal for a relaxing stay. Having stayed twice before we were looking forward to the delicious breakfast and were certainly not disappointed, there is so much choice and everything... More

Elmfield House is in a lovely peaceful rural position and offers excellent accommodation and a comfortable bed. Ian & Astra are very welcoming. Breakfast and the packed lunch are excellent. We would be pleased to return.

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

Ian and Astra are very welcoming hosts. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed.. An exceptional breakfast, including fresh fruit salad and a beautifully cooked and presented full english breakfast to follow. Stayed 2 nights and felt it was a very convenient location and very good value. Sue and Jim

My wife had stayed at The Elmfield a couple of years ago and had found the hospitality excellent, it was for this reason we visited and were no disappointed. 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

Sadly husband and I had only booked in for one night. We wish it had been more. This place is so peaceful and welcoming yet so conveniently placed for visiting Bedale Leyburn and Middleham. Astra and Ian greeted us as though we were family. After unpacking we were invited to refreshments in the very spacious conservatory (large glasses of wine... More

Astra and Ian - The perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble from our late arrival to our early starts...the undeniably amazing breakfasts with homemade bread and freshly ground coffee set the scene perfectly for the great conversations had between ourselves, the hosts and other guests. Both Astra and Ian had a genuine interest in our stay and why we... More

Excellent facility, excellent hosts. Fabulous place with generous-sized comfortable room and ensuite bathroom with bath. Tranquil rural setting, with a toasty light-filled garden sitting room. A little out of the way, but this was exactly what we wanted (plugging the coordinates given on booking.com directions into our TomTom GPS led us straight to the door). Good internet reception.

Thank you for taking the time for reviewing your stay with us. We love the phrase "comfortable serenity" as it does encompass a great deal of what we try to offer.

To get lost on the way is not the best start to your stay, particularly if it has not happened in the previous ten years of ownership, but Astra soon found us and guided us to Elmfield House where Ian had prepared afternoon tea (or coffee) awaiting our arrival.

Great reviews are really helpful for us to keep what we offer of a high standard enhanced by our enthusiasm for meeting our guests.
