We stayed five nights at The Elmdene, and enjoyed every minute. Tracy and Dave were very welcoming. This was luxury at it's very best. Very high standards all round. An excellent breakfast selection as mentioned by others. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be going back!

All of the luxurious touches are appreciated: choc brownies and fresh coffee on arrival, fudge, high quality biscuits and ground coffee in the bedroom, the softest bath robes and... More
