After days of research for potential locations to hold my husbands 30th birthday weekend we came across The Elmfield. Zoe was really helpful and answered all of our questions promptly and was very accommodating. We were a group of 9couples the bedrooms were spacious and all ensuite which was a massive bonus, and something not many houses offer. The house... More

The owner was great, we felt very relaxed and had a hearty breakfast. The rooms were comfortable and the bar provided us a few nerve calming tipples. Would definitely recommend to other wedding parties. We felt at home from the minute we arrived. Thank you again

We hired this lovely big house to have a family get together over the christmas holidays. The house was great for us as we had a range of ages from 5 to 78. The older ones in the group really enjoyed having our own cocktail bar and the younguns loved the little play room. We all had a TV in... More

To celebrate the wedding of my partner's daughter, we were a party of up to a dozen family and wedding guests We were warmly welcomed by Zoe, the co-owner with her husband. When the bride-to-be arrived with her fiance, they were given a drink on the house. The bar, incidentally, is an 'honesty bar', which reflects the general informality of... More

Tv reception rather unreliable in the room but not a big deal. Zoe very helpful and knowledgeable about the area giving us great advice on suitable walks. The breakfast was superb,... More

Excellent couple of nights at the Elmfield. Zoe and Matt made me feel very welcome from check-in. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. All-round a terrific stay - highly recommended.

The Elmfield is an imposing house, overlooking a small valley and set at the end of a private driveway. A former B and B, the present owners have revitalised the building and there's not a single prune or grapefruit segment in sight. There's a lot of space and facilities including a swimming pool in the terraced gardens, a children's play... More

Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Going up two flights of stairs raised my fitness levels, but the view and large bathroom were worth it. The breakfast was superb and our young children were well entertained in the playroom. If we would have had more time we would have enjoyed the indoor pool facilities, but instead we enjoyed a...

We just stayed the one night and had a wonderful stay. Both Matt and Zoe were very helpful. We stayed in the four poster bed room, and it was beautifully decorated and very homely. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would revisit for sure.
