“Most Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stayed at Elmfield over the may bank holiday. We usually stay in hotels but this looked so nice, we were not dissappointed. The room was large, spotlessly clean and the four poster was very comfortable. We were greeted with a pot of tea and two slices of delicious home made cake.
The hosts Astra & Ian made us feel very welcome with friendly chatter and advice. The breakfast was superb, freshly cooked to order and tasted wonderful. The guest section of the house is seperate from the hosts, so you never felt you were imposing in someone elses house. We ate at two recommended places and had very good meals. I would recommend this as a good place to stay for a relaxing break and look forward to returning in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Field room which was very large with a four poster bed

I have stayed in many B&Bs up and down the country and can safely say that Elmfield House is certainly up there with the best. Friendly atmosphere, excellent service, clean and very cosy rooms with views over looking the Yorkshire Dales and a fantastic breakfast spread. Big thank you to Astra and Ian and i look forward to coming back again real soon. Neil

Looking for accommadation near to Bedale,to join up with family who own a 2 bedroom cottage in Crakehall, I discovered Elmfields Country House who were doing a 3 night winter deal and what a discovery it turn out to be.From the moment we walked through the door after showing us to our luxurious room we were served a pot of tea and whiskey fruit cake,and a chat with our friendly helpful hosts.Everywhere was very clean and tastefuly decorated,the cooked breakfast was freshly prepared for us and was amazing and set us up for the day.My wife and I have stayed in many B&B guest houses over the years,and I think this rates as the best.When meeting up with the family in Crakehall next time it will definitely be Elmfields Country House for us.

Room Tip: We had the kingsize room, but all the rooms are a good size and very quiet.

Stayed here before in 2010 and decided at last minute to have a few days break. It was just as good as we remembered it, that is excellent. The large rooms are beautifully furnished, beds very comfortable and everything spotlessly clean. A very nice breakfast completes the picture and would recommend anyone to stay here . Thanks, Emma and hope to see you again without such a long break.

Emma, thanks so much for the warm welcome upon our arrival. The room we had was beautiful and spotless. During our two month tour of the UK and Southern Ireland, Elmfield House was without doubt the best accom we had throughout our holiday. Emma booked a lovely local hotel for our evening meal.
Breakfast was something else. Surperb and the black pudding was to die for.
Regards, Kay and Muz Fisher New Zealand

We arrived late in horrible weather and were warmly welcomed by Darren the owner. He had stayed up to meet us. The large room was very clean and welcoming. The bathroom was clean and had an excellent power shower (however they say they are changing the suite soon). The place is in the middle of fields with sheep and horses, the views great. The breakfast is prepared to order and excellent, made by Emma. We found both of the owners interested is us and our visit. Both nice to talk to, without being imposing. We came for a wedding and they even took another couple to the church when the taxi was late. Would we go again, hell yes. We would be daft not to. Thanks for looking after us.

Room Tip: We only saw ours but I imagine they are very much the same.
