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!

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.
