Turning off the B3165 you pass fields of solar panels following in the directions through quiet country lanes to the secluded Fairwater Head Hotel. Hawkchurch with its community shop is about half a mile distant from the hotel. The hotel takes a deposit of the first night’s accommodation when they confirm the booking within seven days of arrival. We received...

The public areas of this hotel are fantastic. A nice library area and lounge. Breakfast was superb and great owners/staff. A major problem was the low temperature in the bedroom. There was a heater in the wardrobe, but only discovered it on the second evening. The hot water pressure is also a bit low meaning that the shower is a...

Booked somewhat on spec from reviews on TA. Very pleasantly surprised, room was very spacious (room 4) and clean. Excellent little touch was a welcome pack for our little dogs - really neat. We had dinner in the restaurant, and i have to say it was amazing - really special. Service was impeccable too! 5 stars well deserved!!

A smart hotel and our superior room in the main house was a good size. The furniture in the bedroom was a little dated/shabby although the bed was good. The was very poor water pressure on the shower. The main lounge and dinning room were well furnished and smart. Overall a good hotel if a little over priced.

Beautiful scenery, quiet and peaceful. The room was basic but clean. The staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. A very nice weekend away for our wedding anniversary, thoroughly enjoyable.

This was our third visit, we love this hotel, especially as we can take our dog. Rooms are great everything you need, food and dining room 1st class, breakfast to die for. Rural location is just ideal.
