We stay in B&Bs a lot while touring on our motorbikes and I have to say Liz, Keith & Kelly run one of the most friendly, well run places we've ever stayed at. The location is wonderful, the bed was really comfortable, the cream tea served on our arrival was unexpected and most welcome after a long ride up. I... More

We had a lovely long weekend here from the moment Keith appeared in the car park to welcome us and collect our luggage, to the moment of departure, when he got his car out of the garage so we could jump start our ailing Classic from it. I can't imagine a better place to stay. The room was excellent: comfortable... More

My Husband and I went to stay at this guest house for a long Weekend, I have never been to such a friendly welcoming guest house before. The owners Liz and Keith along with their daughter Kelly made you feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. When you arrive you have a cup of tea and cakes and... More

Cannot thank Liz, Keith & Kelly enough for their hospitality. This felt like we were staying with old friends or family, rather than staying at a B&B. We were met and shown to the parking spots, given keys (we couldn't get in the room, buts thats our tendancy to arrive early no fault of Fairhaven) and some recommendations as to... More

This is the third time we have stayed here at the Fairview now and it just gets better and better. The hospitality is absolutely second to none and the way in which the whole family embrace you as a valued guest is exceptional to say the least. The bedroom is amazing and the views are stunning, and the breakfast, well... More

A first-rate country guest house. Run by a wonderful family - Liz, Keith and Kelly (superstar). Gorgeous breakfast. Very attentive to detail. Wonderful views across the moors. Nothing too much trouble.

We would recommend the Fairhaven to anyone, it's a great mix of a comfortable friendly, and ideally located place to stay with very friendly hosts, Liz, Keith and Kelly.Not to mention wonderful views! Nothing was too much trouble. A rare mix of being there when you need them without being OTT. Felt like coming home, my second visit and the... More

This was our second visit to Fairhaven and it was such a thrill to come back. Our last visit had been in 2013 and the welcome again was just as warm as previously. Thank you Liz, Keith and Kelly for making my partner's 60th birthday such a fantastic day. From the moment we arrived on Friday being greeted by Keith... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Fairhaven and it was just perfect. Keith, Liz and Kelly just did everything they could to make our stay wonderful. We have stayed in Goathland for about 20 years, sometimes twice a year and I did not think it could get any better, but it just did. We have booked again for next... More
