We arrived through blizzards to a scene reminiscent of a Christmas card, and quickly settled into our beautiful and comfortable bedroom thanks to the warm welcome provided by Ian and Astra, not forgetting Ozzie and Sam the dogs. Our room was lovely, with ample supplies of tea and coffee and the toiletries in the bathroom added that personal touch.

After a great nights sleep we enjoyed the best poached eggs on toast along with freshly brewed coffee and orange juice to round of our short stay on a high note. We will definitely be back to see Elmfield house when the fields are green again.

I stayed at Elmfield House in June 07 with my father - at the time we were aged respectively 21 and 48.

Had an absolutely lovely visit - I'd been struggling to find somewhere to stay that had even just basic wheelchair access in the area of Richmond, short of nasty roadside chains, and boy oh boy did Elmfield ever come up with the goods. Outstanding physical access made my stay blissfully easy as a wheelchair user with loads of space to move around and a properly kitted out wetroom with roll-in shower - perfect.

No cutting-edge style, just proper comfort, well-thought-out and attentive service, a comfortable room and a generous welcome from friendly staff and an absolutely wonderful resident dog alike - who, might I add, was also most respectful in staying well away until we made it clear we were 'doggy people' - dog-fearing visitors would have no problems here.

I hope I can make it back to stay there another time one day.

I arrived on a Sunday In November having booked by telephone. Arrived at 3:30pm only to be advised by an elderly resident that I could not check in until 4:30pm as Sunday was the only day the owners had off! The house looks nothing like the photo on the website. and I had to check I was at the right place. My room was plesant but very cold as the heating had not ybeen on. No food is available on Sunday evening which is something I had not hoisted in. I use hotels of some sort on average 3 days out of every week so do have high expectations which were certainly not met and I was very disappointed. I await breakfast in the morning.

We are sorry this guest felt disappointed.
This appears to be caused mainly by an earlier than expected arrival and that they had booked a family run guest house rather than a hotel with the wider range of services required. We did assist by turning the heating early and providing an electric heater to help out until that had kicked in.

All our confirmations, both verbal and written, are clear that we are available for check in from 4.30pm unless special arrangements have been made. This ensures that we are ready to see guests in, the heating is on, kettle boiled and cake or biscuits are ready for guests on arrival. It also protects my elderly mother in law from having to see unexpected guests into the house as her health is frail.
The guest did receive our standard e mail confirmation.

At the present time, and in November 2009, evening meals are available by arrangement at the time of booking but Sunday night is excluded. The availability of evening meals is made clear to guests where they ask about them at booking.

First class comfortable, relaxing hotel in quiet rural location at the end of a drive. An ideal base to explore the moors, dales and surrounding area. Excellent breakfast with local produce. Evening dinner menu by prior arrangement, otherwise a selection of pubs and restaurants are available in the surrounding villages.
