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. We booked to stay three nights, and they recommended so many fabulous nearby places that we ended up staying six nights with them, and shall definitely return. Their close proximity to the gardens of Great Dixter and Sissinghurst makes Fairacres a treasure. We couldn't thank them enough.
