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.

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
