Thank you for taking time to write a review of your stay with us. It is fantastic to hear that your second visit was as good as your first. You had a long journey behind you and a busy, active day ahead so it was lovely to be able to help you relax and give you great food with a great nights sleep.
We do hope you will make the trip to Yorkshire again and we would be delighted to see you for a third time.
Regards, Astra and Ian

After a long journey, we had a very warm welcome from Ian and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. We had a lovely room with a 4 - poster bed which was very comfortable. It was a very quiet place, just what we needed and in a lovely spot. Ian spoiled us with dinner on the 1st night and exellent breakfasts every morning and was very helpful with planning our days out and local pubs with excellent food in the evenings. We were very reluctant to go home and thoroughly recommend Elmfield House and Ian and Astra's hospitality. We will be back as soon as we can......

We stayed here with our teenage children and had a lovely relaxing time. We were greeted with cake and a cup of tea and then shown our rooms. Our room was very big with a gorgeous bathroom, the kids room was also a great size with twin beds. We were left to our own devices which suited us brilliantly - wifi worked great for the kids. Breakfast was lovely - fresh fruit salad and cereals - followed by a cooked breakfast - we all wanted different things but Ian had no problem with this. Best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel/b&b. Lots of places to visit locally - will definitely return if in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Your family had an action packed visit to the area taking in some of the more adventurous activities on offer - hardly surprising that, after all that, a comfy bed and peaceful surroundings resulted in an outstanding nights sleep! We are delighted you had that experience here.
We will be happy to see you all again on a future visit to the area and hope that will be soon.

Elmfield House met all the criteria for an excellent b&b and then some! It was spotlessly clean,we had a lovely big room with a comfy bed and a fabulous locally sourced breakfast cooked by Ian. Astra and Ian thoroughly deserve their number one status.We would have no hesitation recommending Elmfield House. Indeed we have already done so to friends and family. We had a lovely time and were made very welcome.We will be booking again. Thankyou.

We chose Elmfield because of good reviews and its peaceful location. We made the right choice. After an afternoon driving through mist on the dales, we were a bit frazzled, but when we arrived Ian came out to greet us, and then sat us down with tea and cake to have a chat. How often does that happen? Comfortable, spacious room, nicely decorated. Excellent homely supper. And a breakfast with locally sourced meats, and the best black pudding in years. Oh, not to mention the fruit salad (fresh figs for breakfastt?!), which was completely fresh, and therefore ten times better than the putrefying pulp you so often get. Keep up the good work, Ian and Astra. True professionals with personality.

Thank you for this review of your stay with us and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and what we have to offer.
We really enjoy meeting our guests and seeing new arrivals start to relax as they begin their break here is a big part of what we enjoy about our job.
Breakfast is a big part of what we do so we work hard to keep it as fresh and current as possible - figs were in season when you stayed so were an easy luxury to offer. At the moment Apple Compote is making an appearance as we use up the last of the apple glut.
We hope to see you again in the near future

What a fantastic B&B! The room was very spacious and well decorated. The whole place had a warm and welcoming atmosphere and Ian was a wonderful host. Great location for many racecourses, especially Catterick which we visited on our stay. Lovely comfortable bed in a room with beautiful views of the countryside. Room was well stocked with tea, coffee, hot chocolate & biscuits. Great breakfast. Can't wait to stay again.

We thank these guests for reviewing their stay with us.
It is good to note that our location - away from busy roads but easily accessible from some of the major roads in the area- was a positive aspect of their stay.
We do offer wifi, which is not always easy in such a rural location, and we were delighted these guests found it easy to access and use.
We hope to be able to greet these guests again on a future visit.
