Stayed here for 1 night. Friendly welcoming owner. Is like staying in someone's house rather than a b&b. Breakfast was superb, loads to choose from and well cooked. The only downer was we did not have ensuite so had to share the bathroom but we knew that when we booked and is reflected in the price which was very reasonable... More

We arrived at Elmfield to be greeted by friendly animals and hosts Martin and Brian. We were made to feel at home immediately with a lovely pot of tea and coffee. Our room was very comfortable and we both slept well on on both nights. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of home made goodies. Nothing was too much trouble which... More

I booked one night as my son was doing the TenTors. Martin is an excellent host and we chatted for ages over a cup of tea. My room was the en-suite with lovely views of the garden. The bed was comfortable and wifi worked fine. The breakfast filled me up for the day and couldn't fault it. Great setting! Peaceful.

Smell of house was foul upon arrival. The dog was even more of a pain when it did not stop barking! Dirty cups given, shared bathroom between everyone! Not a good word to say. Bedding was itchy, and breakfast served cold. Never again.

Thank you for your response but a few facts need to be explained in case this was an arranged vindictive response. Our dog that barked all night was very sadly put to sleep 3 weeks before your arrival. The dirty cups had been through the dishwasher at a very high temperature. The bedding was Egyptian cotton from John Lewis. The... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at Elmfield. We stayed in the ensuite room which overlooked the garden. Martin was taking part in a local production so arranged for his friends Yvonne and Tony to be there to meet us. They made us coffee and Tony is a member at the golf club where we were playing...

Much enjoyed our stay in mid June. Martin proved to be an excellent and entertaining host and provider of delicious breakfasts. The house is lovely and the rooms great. What was particularly good and helpful was the flexibility in terms of breakfast time - as we were working it was refreshing to have a host not bulk at an early... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two night stay at Elmfield. Martin made us feel immediately welcome by sitting down with us on the first night for a lengthy and highly interesting conversation. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Best two nights sleep in a long time. A charming house with a charming owner. Thank you...

Beautiful place and wonderful stay. Recently stayed ther with my family, my Husband, my Mother and my two girls (2 and 4 years of age). The girls had so much fun in the garden and playing with the dogs. My eldest absolutely loved staying in the pink bedroom (and she slept like a log!). Breakfast was absolutely delicious, first quality... More
