Peaceful location but within easy reach of local towns and villages. We received a warm friendly welcome together with tea and home made cake. Large comfortable bed rooms with high quality furnishings, spotless clean and attention given to detail. Astra and Ian are very knowledgeable about places of interest and dining out, nothing was too much trouble. Superb freshly cooked... More

Thank you so much for your review. It is a pleasure to see you use the phrase "Yorkshire hospitality at its best" as it is that phrase describes what we aim to deliver. North Yorkshire is beautiful with many lovely attractions and restaurants, some well promoted and some less well known, and we are really happy to discuss them with... More

Elmfield House is a 10 minute drive from the town of Bedale in the Yorkshire Dales. The spacious accommodation is separate to the main house providing privacy and a quiet retreat. Modern ensuite bathroom facilities are provided with each room. On-site parking is free. The full English breakfast was most enjoyable. There are three or four pubs at nearby villages... More

A truly excellent resting place, completely re-charged. Clear directions and a most pleasant welcome including a pot of tea and freshly made biscuits. Very clean facilities. Most comfortable bed in idyllic surroundings.

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

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
