John & Shelagh pride themselves on their attention to detail, and rightly so! Everything we could wish for was provided, the breakfast was sublime, and nothing was too much trouble. We were given a huge amount of advice of places to visit and lots of local knowledge (such as visiting a steam engine display which was amazing and you would...

We stayed at Fairacres for the first time in November 2013 & again on the 21/22 March, 2014. John & Shelagh are the most amazing hosts.

My husband and I recently stayed at Fairacres for two nights. We cannot praise the owners, John & Shelagh highly enough. From helping us in and out with our bags etc., giving us a raft of information to help us to decide what to see in this lovely county, to recommending places to eat, they couldn't do enough. Their home...

My husband and I had originally booked to stay for 5 nights but unfortunately we had to cut our trip short as the area was hit by the October storm and power went out in the village. However, during this time John and Shelagh worked tirelessly to make their guests stay as comfortable as possible. Luckily they cook on a...

We went to stay at Fairacres for the first time this August and had a wonderful time. We had the Garden Room which feels very secluded & quiet at the back of the property with stairs down to the large garden. Our room was very generous in size, had lovely complimentory items such as daily chocolates, and daily re-filled port...

We had never before experienced such gracious hospitality and sheer perfection in a B&B. John and Shelagh were amazingly generous in thinking of everything possible to make our stay a memorable one. The outstanding breakfast menu will be remembered for a long time, as will their lovely large beautiful home and garden. Their 5 star Gold rating was justly deserved....

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.”
