A wonderful B&b with great hosts, heavenly breakfast and lots of love to tasteful and welcoming details in the room. John and Shelagh are enormously helpful and gave us great tips to explore the surrounding.

Fairacres is a blessing and a wonder in a world whereby medicority is accepted by so many much too often. I can not stress enough how lovely our stay was.

If Carlesburgh made guest houses they would have chosen this one for their mold! Probably the finest example of British guest houses and certainly well worth a visit. John and Shelagh are perfect hosts and will impress anyone with their willingness to help. Best breakfast menu in the UK and meals are not cooked until your order has been taken....

I have not stayed in a British B&B for decades but was happy to learn that the best still far outshine the hotel experience. Both Shelagh and John were very friendly (rivalled only by their counterparts in Newfoundland), went out of their way to meet every need and included so many thoughtful touches in the room amenities. Highly recommended.

Yet again they managed to go that little bit extra and make our stay as welcoming as possible, from the extra little touches in the room to the fantastic breakfast.They really are the best hosts you could ever hope to meet and we will...

We stayed in the magnolia room which was full of lovely extras, from the chocolates, sweets and drinks to the huge en-suite. We had a warm reception and a tray of much needed coffee after a very wet journey. Thanks to John and Shelagh for a very welcome break. It's a lovely place to stay if you're in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Charming 300 year old cottage of architectural and historical importance, in the village of Broad Oak, approximately 6 miles from Rye, 7 miles from Battle and 7 miles from Hastings. The house is full of beam and Inglenook fireplaces, with superbly furnished and decorated rooms, which are full of character. We have a sumptuous four poster bedroom with en-suite shower room. There is also a charming garden room with its own balcony and steps to the garden - this also has a superb en-suite shower room. And finally the delightful Magnolia Room with its vaulted ceiling, a large luxurious en-suite bathroom with separate shower. All rooms are well equipped with color TVs, videos, DVD/CD players, radios, hospitality trays, small decanter of port and sherry, hair dryers and trouser presses, safes and, of course, the bathrooms contain all of your toiletry needs. Breakfast is served at the family table in the Inglenooked dining room, which adjoins the resident's sitting room, with direct access to the "Italian patio" with its delightful features adjoining the main gardens and orchard. Our delicious breakfasts are made with local produce wherever possible and feature freshly squeezed fruit juices and home baked bread. We are more than happy to arrange themed visits, for example arranging itineraries for visiting places of your interest, such as gardens, castles, fishing trips and especially walking tours. There is ample secure parking at the rear of the house. ... more   less

“The Magnolia room was very comfortable and had a lot of old world charm.”

“All the rooms are lovely but we enjoyed the Magnolia room with its large bathroom and two comfortable chairs to watch telly in.”

“Be aware the Garden Room is two single beds! Our room was booked for us as a lovely engagement present so we were a little surprised to arrive and find there was no double bed in that particular room! The Garden Room is the quietest as it is at the back of the property. However, there are stairs down to the en-suite bathroom which could be difficult for a less physically able person.”

“If you want comfy armchairs then the Magnolia room fits the bill buts thats just my experience as am sure the other two rooms are just as comfy. Having a large bath and an independent shower was fab. Any of the three rooms are luxurious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The little extras replenished daily such as port and sherry in mini decanters and mints and luxury chocolates add to the wonderful ambience that Jon and Shelagh seemingly effortlessly provide.”
