award 2015
Here is the fantastic award we were give for winning best B&B in the South West at Weston Super Mare Grand Pier,,It caps off what has been a wonderful year for us at Elmdene. We will have to get a bigger shelf for this one. We hope all our usual guests will again stay with us this year and help us celebrate this fantastic achievement.


Absolutely delighted to announce that Elmdene was a gold winner at the South West tourism awards at Weston Super Mares Grand pier last night. The opposition came from Gloucestershire all the way down to the Scilly Isles. There were a couple of silver and bronze in our category (best B&B / INN) and only one gold winner. Sometimes you are scared to dream but as the others were called out and we were left until last it was an amazing feeling. We will post some photos and a picture of the fantastic glass award in the next couple of days. What a sensational year for our little family run business. Thanks to everyone who has stayed with us, supported us with online reviews and made this dream become possible. A lovely boost for our town as well. Torquay beating Cornwall and Dorset is a major plus for us. Lets hope the sun shines and everyone has a fantastic season

Visit Devon B&B of the year

accountsWe would just like to show you our gong for winning the above award. It takes pride of place at the front of our guesthouse. We have also been put forward into the south west finals at Weston pier on the 12th feb. This covers the whole of the south west from Gloucestershire to Lands End so the opposition will be pretty tough to say the least. It is an achievement to get as far as this so we will be going there and hoping we have done enough to get on the podium for a third time. Heady Days at the Elmdene
