We've stayed at Elmswood House a few times, travelling with both our family and with friends, always made to feel very much at home and well looked after. We've stayed in various rooms and always found them to be comfortable & absolutely spotless. Angela and Graham always provide a warm welcome and do a fantastic breakfast cooked to order.
