My husband and I stayed at Fairwinds for four nights at the beginning of September and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Everywhere was clean and comfortable and we had what appeared to be a super kingsize bed.
On arrival we were told to help ourselves to a welcome drink set up in the bar area which was a decanter of whisky and another of sherry which we thought was a very nice touch. Also as mentioned previously each day on the tea/coffee tray was something homemade and delicious instead of the usual packet of rather dull biscuits often provided.
The breakfasts were very good indeed....a delicious array of fruit and plenty of choice of cooked dishes. We booked dinner as well and they were very good indeed.Three courses of quality food (mmm that venison fillet!) cooked extremely well and served very nicely and often with quite a bit of humour which really added fun to our stay.
Alison and Lindsey were great hosts and on our wedding anniversary they presented us with a beautiful iced cake complete with ribbon and a candle which we thought was very kind and was certainly appreciated.
Another highlight of our stay was their little dog Lucy who was an absolute delight. A gorgeous little ball of white fur with the most appealing nature. We absolutely loved her!
All in all we had a very good time at Fairwinds and would definitely recommend it to other visitors.
