Despite the address being Elberry Lane the farm is NOT in Elberry Lane, I know, I walked the Lane twice looking for it! You must print off the map on their site or like us you will take an hour to find it. When we arrived no one was in. There was a note on the door with a telephone number but when we rang, it was switched off! After quarter of an hour their daughter arrived and showed us to a nice on suite room that was spotlessly clean and well decorated.
At breakfast I queried the price of breakfast, I had booked with Late Rooms at £60 a night and was then asked by Late Rooms if I wanted breakfast at £8 for my room. I ticked the yes box and was billed £76 !
The explanation I was given was that they pay a large fee to Late Rooms and it would have been cheaper if I had booked from their web site, (which when I booked I did not know they had!). However although I had given my card details to Late Rooms she informed me that was to protect my booking and that she required the £76 now in cash. (Probably because of the shocked look on my face she magnanimously reduced it to £75).
Probably a 1/4 of a mile (as the crow flies) is a beautiful twelfth century hotel called Churston Court. Go for a drink in their bar and ask yourself would you like to stay here for £1 LESS than staying in a private B&B.
There is nothing wrong with Elberry Farm if you get it a a good price, but watch where you book.
