We recently booked the whole guest house out for a family event with friends and family travelling from all over the country. The family were very welcoming when we arrived and showed us around the place so we felt at home straight away. There is a large residents lounge and the house is licensed so you can enjoy a drink...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Fairhaven and it is the best guest house we have stayed in. Another couple at breakfast said they came every year and would never go anywhere else. I can understand why and totally agree ! The rooms are spacious and comfortable with lovely views over the moors. Superb location in... More

It has been some eight years since my wife and I last visited this establishment. On that occasion, we said we would definitely return and having just done so, we cannot understand why we left it so long !! The guest house is as warm and welcoming as it was on our last visit and the breakfasts are absolutely superb.... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We're glad that your return visit to Fairhaven was so enjoyable, and mum is particularly thrilled with your comment about her 'superb breakfasts!' It would be lovely to see you again, sooner rather than later, when you next have the chance to escape to the moors. More
