Almost a year ago now since we spent a few nights at John and Shelagh's place. Forgot (or didn't find the time) to write a review, which is a shame, because they deserve a good one. Now that it's springtime again, our fond memories are stronger than ever and we really can't find any excuse nor postpone any longer.
What a great place it is! And how hospitable they are! We loved the talks, we loved the garden, we loved the cats, we loved the two rooms we slept in and we still dream of the superb breakfasts and especially of John's heavenly poached eggs, which are inimitable (believe me, we tried several times. What's the secret, John?). If we come back to the South of England, Fairacres is absolutely on the top of our list of places to go back to. So, John and Shelagh, hope to see you soon.
All best, from Finn (and 'Ice'), Jacqueline and Nico
