Martin was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome with tea and home made cake on our arrival. The welcome we recieved was more akin to that of a friend rather than a B&B host! It was great to stopover here whilst cycling from Plymouth to Ilfracombe, and we could stow our bikes safely overnight. The pub in the village does decent food and ale. The breakfast in the morning was excellent, I will be sure to visit again when in the area!
Booked here for one night and stayed three days, the Bedroom room was comfortable and full of period charm. The sitting room was a lovely place for Martins tea and cake after a wet day out side, real fire roaring and fabulous conversation. Great breakfast so much choice.....just a lovely hidden gem
We stayed for two nights on 20th and 21st December '19 for our daughter, Sapphire and Chris's wedding. Martin is a fantastic host, nothing was to much trouble. Good food, comfortable beds, some places the showers are slow not here, powerful and hot. Martin was very acomadating to the fact we were opening champaign, we cleared up after ourselves so not to cause extra work fo him. Thank you so much Martin for being so welcoming.

We needed somewhere to stay due to attending a family gathering in Northlew and ended up with 2 nights at Elmfield. Can’t fault it - the house is old but with it comes a ton of character and the house is full of many interesting antiques to admire. We had the bedroom with en-suite which I recommend for privacy. Both rooms have lovely view of garden. The proprietor, Martin looked after us faultlessly and our 1 year old Labrador even better! We were met with tea and cake upon arrival, which was unexpected and greatly received after a 4hr journey. He also kindly helped us out with a dinner reversation on a Sunday night (eating out in that part of Devon on a Sunday night doesn’t have many options). Breakfast was absolutely delicious - home cooked and clear focus on quality then quantity. We had a great stay and if need to stay in area again, would happily stay again!…
An absolutely Gorgeous House, a fantastic, interesting & engaging Host, then the best breakfast I think I have ever had!! I can't recommend this place enough and I will be back soon I hope. Oh and I forgot, for a 1900's building it had an amazingly good shower too! Call Martin and book soon You won't regret it I assure You :)
