Fantastic house with plenty of room for all our party, seventeen adults and two children. I think the description of the house ought to mention that the pool is down a very steep path and the photographs do not show the difficulty that older people may have in reaching the garden area or the pool. The bathrooms could do with... More

The Elmfield served as a perfect base for our family getaway. If you ignore the number of flights of stairs and the steep path to the pool, it's pretty much perfect. It has a massive kitchen (it did used to be a hotel), which makes it easy to prepare large dishes for all. The bar room is great for evenings... More
