In the Devon village of Northlew, Elmfield lies around 11.3 km from Okehampton and the Dartmoor National Park. With a spacious garden, this bed and breakfast offers elegant rooms with free parking and WiFi.

All rooms have a TV, alarm clock and ironing facilities. Rooms have either shared or private bathroom facilities with slippers, bathrobes and toiletries supplied.

The Elmfield cooked breakfast includes bacon, eggs, sausage, mushrooms, black and hogs pudding, tomato and fried bread. Alternatives include smoked haddock and poached eggs, and there is homemade bread, jam and marmalade as well as cereals, juice, tea and coffee.

This bed and breakfast is a short walk from the village pub, and Okehampton offers a wide range of restaurants around 15 minutes’ drive away. The ruined Okehampton Castle was once the largest castle in Devon, and the site now has a riverside picnic area and woodland walks nearby.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.1 for a two-person trip.The old farmhouse is left with just an acre of land for guests to relax and enjoy. Weather permitting we have been known to serve breakfast under the lime tree! It is a traditional Georgian style dating from 1836 and stuffed with antiques and memorabilia due to my magpie nature.

I was a director of the Conservative Party and then a Political Secretary to a number of MEPs I have been known to describe myself as a 'salesman' - very often of an inferior product! However it has resulted in a fascination for all things political mostly from the nineteenth century and earlier. I am also a theatre and opera addict.
The advantages of Elmfield include the easy access from the A30, the proximity to Dartmoor and we are almost equidistant from both north and south coasts. The village itself is remote and night clubs could be difficult to find! However the local pub (the Green Dragon) gets quite lively from time to time! (I declare a pecuniary interest!)
