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

We stayed here for 2 nights. This is a fab B&B lots of attention to detail and lovely clean rooms. Breakfast was excellent. The owners are very attentive and I even got a birthday card which was a nice thought. the view from our room was really nice. We hope to return.

I was a bit sceptical about the extraordinary high ratings for this guesthouse when we booked for a 2 nights stay but we were most impressed. The Fairhaven is spotless, oozes character and is of a very high standard. The breakfast was superb but most of all the effort made by the friendly hosts made our short stay outstanding.

Short visit in May 2015 and still as amazing as our previous visit. Brilliant welcome with home made cakes and hot drinks. Breakfasts are amazing with a great selection to choose from. We met a couple staying at the same time as us who were on there 17th visit. That says it all.! Wonderful location for exploring the area. Thanks... More

The level of hospitality, courtesy, cleanliness and service at this guest house is first class. From arriving to departing my friends and I were made to feel very welcome. We are already planning our next stay. If you are looking to stay in Goathland, look no further than the Fairhaven County Guest House; you will not be disappointed.
