The former farmhouse of Elmfield is said to have been built in 1836 and was originally the principal farm in the centre of this Saxon village.
The coach houses and stables have long since been sold off as has much of the land providing much needed housing in the community. Fortunately at that time the owners extended the garden so the house now sits in an idyllic garden of about an acre – overlooking Dartmoor.
Northlew is a quiet, friendly and much sought after village on the edge of the moor yet conveniently sited no more than 15 minutes from Okehampton (and the A30), Hatherleigh, Highampton and Inwardleigh.
We offer luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation from £25 and you can be sure that our extensive breakfast menu will set you up for a day exploring our glorious countryside, visiting the north and south coasts in both Devon and Cornwall or just relaxing with a good book in the garden.

"Quite a sizeable house which a farmer built for himself near
the square so as to be on the spot for Fair Days – early Victorian
I should think
the look of it and well proportioned... "
"I don't say Northlew is decayed now – it just stays put in comfortable peace"
