Spent a couple of nights there on a short break, and were mightily impressed by the owners, the accommodation, and especially the breakfasts. The location, set back from the road, was very peaceful, but easy to find, with a sign indicating the turn-off. The room was a good size with a four poster bed, a real novelty. The bathroom was...

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here within the last year and we absolutely love it. Can't wait to return again in August. Ian and Astra are a lovely couple and are super welcoming and friendly. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Why go for second best when you can have THE BEST

A very pleasant family run establishment, everything you could need was supplied in the accommodation down to every little detail, the welcome was warm, tea or coffee and cake was offered. Breakfast was excellent and no fuss about our earlyishh start on a Sunday morning. The place has land that can be walked including a small lake. It is very... More

The location of the farm where Elmfield House is located is just beautiful. Astra & Ian were wonderful hosts and very helpful with their suggestions. Our twin room upstairs was very spacious with a great bathroom. Twin aspect windows meant the sun shone in morning and afternoon and the views were lovely.

One of the best B&B's I have stayed in. The hosts were amazing and nothing was any trouble for them. Breakfast was amazing which the food coming from local resources, even Ian & Astra making their own bread. The views and the surroundings were breath taking. We will be back that's for sure especially as we got engaged here. North... More

This was our last stop over on our way to Scotland & the B&B was very good. The reception area was not too well signposted but it was situated in the conservatory so we weren't sure if we were in the right place. We had a four poster bed which was very comfy, the room was very pleasant & breakfast... More

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.
