Stayed at Elmdene in Room 1 for 6 nights 31/08 to 06/09. Hosts were great, room was great and breakfast was lovely. Trip advisor classification is totally warranted. Elmdene will be our first choice when holidaying in Devon. Thanks Tracey & David and best wishes!

Tracy and David the owners couldn't have tried any harder to make us feel more welcome - it really is a home from home. The room was immaculate and extremely comfortable, breakfast was perfect, the whole experience relaxing and pleasurable. We cannot recommend The Elmdene more highly.

We stayed in Room 4 which was extremely comfortable and very well presented. Our room, en-suite and the public areas were spotlessly clean. The facilities provided in the room were first class and replenished every day. Breakfasts were wonderful and set us up for the whole day! There is parking for all guests and we took advantage of this and... More

The owners were a friendly, welcoming couple, who were happy to provide information on the area. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, and the BnB had such a comfy vibe with the honesty bar, and the chess board in the lounge room.

Tracy and David gave us such a wonderful holiday. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. The Elmdene B & B is spotlessly clean and each room is tastefully decorated. We can't fault the place or the hosts. We'll definitely return. Thank you so much.

This is our second year with Tracy & David at the Elmdene. Staying here is like being enveloped in a warm hug. Tracy & David cannot do enough to make your stay the best it can be. David's breakfasts are amazing, everything cooked fresh to order & locally sourced. We would not consider staying anywhere else.
