The Elephant's Nest Inn
Very Good8.0
Comfortable room and lovely inn
Very comfortable, would love to return.

The Elephant's Nest Inn
Perfect for walking the moors for peace and quiet
A bit disappointed that the Inn took £40 deposit which I never knew until we checked out today and checked my bank account. We didn't get any discount when the heating wasn't working for both nights. 2nd night we were given a small fan heater. Rooms seem a little run down this time around. Owners moods are very different morning and night so never sure if they will be happy or not. Entrance to car park is full of pot holes but large car park but mostly taken up by staff and owners.

The Elephant's Nest Inn
Great food, room and atmosphere of country pub.
Lovely small Pub B&B (only 3 rooms) but personal service, great quality in bedroom etc. Food was exceptional although would be nice to have the pub open a bit earlier in the evening than 6.30 pm to have an earlier drink before dinner.
