We had a very enjoyable stay here. The house has lots of character and was tastefully decorated. The communal areas were comfortable and relaxed. Nice touches in the bedroom included quality hand wash and shower gel, and nice complimentary biscuits. Breakfast was generous, and included fresh fruit and an excellent choice of cooked options. Hosts were friendly and helpful. We... More

Every now and then you get to experience a little bit of paradise, which is what The Elmfield felt to us. A beautifully, charming period property situated on a hill with its uniquely styled rooms gives it the edge. Zoe and Matt are delightful, knowledgable hotel owners who together with their sons made our stay a very memorable one, with... More

We had a great 4 nights at the Elmfield. Matt and Zoe and their 2 lovely sons made us very welcome. Our room was great - spacious and comfortable. Delicious food every morning for breakfast (waffles, maple syrup and bacon on the last day a highlight), and the garden, swimming pool, toy/games room and big screen tv/dvd room made it... More

Checking in to the Elmfield for the first time is one of life's wonderful little gifts - this place is like a super-chilled Soho boutique hotel, but in Ilfracombe rather than London or New York. It's a delightful place - family and dog friendly - with a relaxed 'shabby-chic' atmosphere. Rooms are generously-sized, the gardens are lush and there's a... More

Just returned from our second stay at the Elmfield and again, had a fantastic time. We usually like to try out different hotels but the Elmfield has pretty much got it all...warm, friendly & helpful owners in Zoe & Matt and great facilities (swimming pool, games room) that were ideal for us. Our room was lovely, a good size with... More

Stayed here with my wife for 2 nights at the end of July 2014 and was upgraded to a wonderful room with 4 poster bed. Everything about our stay was just perfect. Zoe greeted us and gave us all the information we could possibly need about her guest house and about the local area. She gave us a comprehensive list... More

We just had 2 nights at the Elmfield with our 6 year old son and twin 3 year old daughters, and it was great. They have really thought about what you need when staying in a hotel with young children, and they provide it all. They even let us cobble together a picnic tea for our kids and eat it... More
