Good Hotel Guide Review
Guide readers this year continue to be ‘impressed’ by the balance of ‘informality and great efficiency’ at Paul Davies and Andrew Hetherington’s ‘lovely, quiet’ small hotel down peaceful country lanes. ‘We felt well looked after and “at home” here.’ ‘Excellently located’, the 18th-century Georgian mansion stands in ‘lovely grounds full of wildlife’; wander round to find the ornamental lake, the old orchard, wide-spreading trees for reading under. Inside, the house is ‘beautifully furnished and maintained, without being fussy’. Settle into ‘comfortable, cosy’ bedrooms: each is individually designed; all are thoughtfully stocked with organic teas, home-made Welsh cakes and ‘loads of gadgets’. The tables are set with white linens and fresh flowers in the restaurant, where chef David Whitecross’s modern British dishes are praised. ‘We ate in, over six nights. Though the menu didn’t change, there were daily specials and adequate choice. We loved the sea bass with samphire that one of the cooks collects from the salt marshes. The wine list is vast, but we were well advised by one of the waiters.’ ‘Good breakfasts, too.’ In late 2016, Fairyhill was bought by a company that specialises in wedding.
