Welcome to Fairhaven

Our Edwardian Country Guest House is in the beautiful village of Goathland in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

It's the perfect spot to explore the moors, the coast (Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby and Scarborough are all close by) as well as York, Pickering, Malton and more. We’re also lucky enough to have the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway just a few minutes walk away. You can leave the car in our private car park and we also have lock-up facilities for bicycles.

Whatever the reason for your visit, we’re here to make your stay as wonderful as our surroundings. We are delighted that we have an Enjoy England 4 Star Gold Award status and a Certificate of Excellence from our Trip Advisor reviews.

You’ll enjoy beautiful views from all 9 of our bedrooms (8 include en-suite, one has private facilities), with free Wi-Fi throughout the house. You can relax in our large guest lounge with its open fire and enjoy a drink from our bar or you are welcome to use the garden with it’s lovely views across the moors. In the mornings, you can look forward to an impressive breakfast with local produce.

We’re open all year round, closing only for a few days over Christmas. (We think the scenery is as beautiful in winter as it is in summer).

You can check availability and book your room here. However, if you’d like any help or would like to know anything else, please ask.

We are now closed but.......

                         We are closely monitoring government advice and when we are able to welcome guests again                                                      we will be ready for you!

Our already very high standards of cleanliness and hygiene will be further enhanced to include additional sanitising in rooms and all common areas. Social distancing will be observed and facilitated throughout your stay and dining options will be available to ensure you can still enjoy our award winning breakfast. Also bear in mind that if the usual local eateries are not available to you we will be able to offer food in the evening and the bar will be open of course!

If you are considering a booking for later in the year, currently you can do so deposit free. We don't yet know for sure when we will be able to offer your our usual warm welcome but that need not stop you planning and having something to look forward to. Simply give us a call on 01947 896361 to discuss.


Keep safe, hope to see you soon
