What a smashing welcome from liz when we both arrived in the afternoon. A lovely tea tray filled with hot beverages,and homemade cakes. Good start to our few days away. My husband had surprised me, (celebrating a rather big birthday),with a trip to heartbeat country. We enjoyed our meal at the guesthouse on the first night. Cooked beautifully. Breakfast each...

Without doubt the best Guest House we have stayed in. Liz, Keith and Kelly made us very welcome on a special occasion. On arrival we were welcomed with a hot drink and cake and given plenty of help and advise throughout our two night stay. The food was excellent. We were sad to leave but will definitely visit again.

We have stayed at the Fairhaven on a number of occasions over the past 7-8 years.Liz, Keith and Kelly are always ready to help and advise on anything. As always there was a welcoming pot of tea and biscuits, the whole house is so clean... More

Fairhaven is an oasis of calm, old fashioned service, good food, company and comfort. We spent New Year there with about a dozen other like minded people who wanted a congenial break. Liz, Keith and Kelly are so attentive to your every need but not "in your face", a skill which is hard to achieve! Tea, coffee, home made cakes,... More

You simply haven't lived until you have stayed at 'The Fairhaven' Luxury Guest House and sampled their unbelievable hospitality, food, bedrooms and amenities in general, with a lounge for guests to relax in while Keith just keeps your glass topped up all evening from the bar, and if you're not watching your favourite program on the huge flat screen television,...

Keith, Liz and Kelly are devoted to taking very good care of their guests. They offer nine rooms in this beautiful home-away-from-home in the quiet country town of Goathland within North York Moors National Park, just 38 miles or so North of York, drivable in an hour or less. We had a wonderful, comfortable, pampered stay and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Third time of visiting. Clean, comfortable and so welcoming. All rooms we've had have been really good. This time we had one at the front with amazing views over the moors. Looking forward to our next stay. Wonderful.
