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.

Take the UK's most scenic bus journey!

It's official! In a recent poll the 840 Coastliner route from Malton to Whitby has been voted the UK's most scenic bus route - and it goes right past our front door! The Coastliner provides the perfect way to see the coast and moors without the stress of driving. Leave your car in our secure and private car park and explore the area with ease both on this spectacular bus route and not forgetting the timeless North Yorks Moors Railway - the station is an easy 10 minute walk from Fairhaven. With summer finally here you can sit back and enjoy the view!
