Jill and Paul were great hosts and gave us welcomed advice on "watering holes". Fairwinds was immaculate, our bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were to die for. We would return tomorrow if we could. Thank you both, Doug and Brenda x

Stayed here for two nights with friends, the guest house is very clean and tidy and the breakfast is excellent. Cannot really find any fault with Fair Winds apart from one minor niggle which is very trivial, the Heinz & HP sauce bottles had been refilled with inferior quality sauces (faded labels a giveaway) apart from that the hosts were...

We are really glad you enjoyed your stay. With regard to your comment on our use of inferior tomato and brown sauce I am afraid your amateur detective work falls way short of the mark. It is a perfectly acceptable practice to refill the sauce bottles which are cleaned thoroughly first but we only ever use Heinz Tomato And HP... More

Despite the fact that we were turning up quite late (21:00) The owners were very pleased to welcome us, leaving us a space on the drive for our arrival and being there to greet us when we finally arrived. Room had been recently renovated and had some quite nice features. Bathroom was a comfortable size, but could have done with... More

We stayed at Fair Winds 8th-12th September for our Honeymoon. Paul greeted us on arrival and checked us in. We chose the superior double when booking direct with Paul as it is actually a self contained one bedroom flat, with a little kitchenette but based on a bed and breakfast rate so we were able to join the other guests...

We booked the Sundowner suite which proved to be a good decision as it is above average size, light and airy and is situated at the rear and you cannot hear the noise of the busy main road. We were greeted by Paul and Gill who made us welcome with a drink and homemade biscuits. The breakfast menu is varied... More

Went to Fair Winds for few days convalescence after illness. Our room, Santa Ana, ground floor front, was described as "King Room" but we found it cramped and stuffy in the Summer heat with intrusive road noise when the windows were opened. We would not agree that this room is suitable for people with limited mobility. It would not accommodate... More

Thank you for your review. My apologies. You did request decaf on your booking form but due to personal circumstances ( see response to davebolton4 review 2 reviews down. These guests were here at the same time. ) this was overlooked. It does say on our web site that this room is suitable for people with limited mobility. This is... More
