It could have been a clear 5 points - everything was very nice, but the breakfast affair spoiled it for us. Our young daughter had a rather small bowl of porridge, 1 egg and a spoon full of baked beans - equivalent of 1,50 pounds . She liked the porridge very much, so we asked for a second bowl. "No...

We booked fairly last minute at the Fairhaven Country Guest House. We stayed last September (2015) and always said we would return. We were over the moon when I enquired that Liz and her family could accommodate us for 4 nights from the 12-16th September 2016. Me and my mum and dad shared a large family room for the 3... More

Helpful and hospitable from the moment we arrived. In fact, from the moment we phoned to book. Excellent tea and cakes, and breakfast specials. Very elegant Edwardian house in wonderful condition. Easy walk to Mallayan Spout for good meals.

This superb place has the most amazing service. You are treated as a friend as soon as you arrive. Nothing is too much trouble. The owners are full of information and suggestions to make your visit as interesting as possible. It helps that it is situated in the most beautiful surroundings of the North Yorkshire Dales, but without the warmth... More

A return visit for a longer stay due to the wonderful hosts and location. Members of our family have also made return visits. A big recommendation as we come from Australia. Hosts have become family friends and keep in contact.

We stayed one night at Fairhaven as part of a tour through Yorkshire. The location and house were beautiful, very well decorated with comfortable bed and lovely views. The owners were attentive, generous and really made you feel welcome. Great cake, breakfast and refreshments plus a real log fire. Would absolutely stay again.

The only word to describe Fairhaven Country Guest House is "perfection"! From the moment you arrive you know that you have found something special. The old country house itself is impressive, but it is the family who own and run Fairhaven which are it's living soul. In every room you can sense their passion for the house and it's guests....

Awe it's lovely! I just can't add to all the positive reviews - what's not to like? From a great Yorkshire welcome with tea and yummy cakes ... to lovely rooms to wonderful views and, last but not least - a great fresh breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble - if you need something, you just have to ask and... More
