          Hi , I stay with friends at Coxwold on a farm, we have passed the Fairfax and always said we would stay there. It would be very nice if you could choose a room for us with a nice view. We will be arriving on the 26thAugust and leaving on the 28th. Many thanks. Going off the reviews we are really looking forward to our stay. Kind regards Steve and Karen
