We stayed with our two small children at the Elmfield over New Year 2012. Despite the miserable weather that would have made any family holiday torture, we all had a wonderful time. Mostly helped by the warm welcome of Zoe & Matt who are great hosts. The house itself has a great charm to it, the rooms are cosy, lovely furnished and well kept. There is a great play room for the kids with a huge choice of toys for any age. Adjacent to it is a comfortable lounge for adults to relax around a cosy fire. If the toy room runs out of novelty value, there is always the heated pool to visit or a movie to watch. Endless kids entertainment. Don't miss to visit the 'Playhut' by the Tunnel Beaches if your kids need to burn off further energy (during rainy days). Matt & Zoe have a great list of local eateries which are all worth a visit. Most notably the Gendarmerie for a romantic candle light gourmet treat (Zoe has a lovely baby sitter on hand) or the Rock Inn for great quality gastro pub food in a kids friendly environment. Loved our stay! Big thanks to Zoe & Matt. PS: Zoe cooks up a mean breakfast that's worth alone a trip back.
