York is rich in history and historical buildings and Faversham House is the centrepiece. Not an imposing building but rather one that beckons you to come a little closer. Once in the grounds her charms become apparent. We were only overnight guests and had chosen the courtyard rooms which were perfectly adequate.... but sometime we must return to sample the piece de resistance, the house itself. The dining room where breakfast was served was a taster. Host Nola gave us a special glimpse into the origins of Faversham House and Richard fascinated me with his passion for dry stane walls and bricklaying. My wife and I played Petanque (Boule to francophiles) on the front lawn as the sun was setting serenaded by birds seeking a roosting place for the night. We are not ones for dissecting the intricacies of whether the bathrobes were white or red; taking photographs of the cuisine and discussing the lack of croissants etc. Atmosphere, ambience, call it what you will is more memorable than a good steak, or under floor heating even. We will return. When, I do not know but I hope that Nola and Richard are still there and that old charm is not messed with.

I took my partner to Faversham House for her birthday weekend and it was spectacular! The accommodation was the highlight of our entire trip. We visited Avon and Swan Valleys and by far the best thing about the weekend was our stay in the Hotel. We booked the Mount Brown suite and it was definitely worth it. The access to the balcony and views of Mount Brown from the suite's bed was very scenic. The cooked breakfast was amazing in the morning and highly recommend it. Thank you so much for the excellent hospitality and we will be visiting again soon!

Room Tip: Book the Mount Brown Suite

Hi Ben Great to hear both of you enjoyed the stay. Isn't it lovely to give a gift that you get to enjoy as well!! Thanks for the comments on the breakfasts - poached eggs are such a lovely way to start the day, especially when the eggs are so fresh and natural.

Please come back soon - such a pleasure to have our home shared with gorgeous folks.

We had just one night but it would have been lovely to stay longer. Nola and Richard were excellent hosts, the cooked breakfast was fantastic. The courtyard room is snug and the whole place has charm and history.

thank you for taking the time to place your review online. I trust the rest of your trip was just as lovely as your stay here. Glad to have someone to share the figs with!

Please come back again, and perhaps enjoy a stay in "the big house".

All the positive reviews of Faversham House and hosts are true. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our first 2 night stay so came back for an overnight stay on Saturday. Everything still had that feeling of being a “little bit special”. Friendly but not intrusive welcome and service, with everything and more that you need of a B&B. We only regret that we couldn’t we stay longer again! We will be back yet again, perhaps when York is at its best and not so dry.

Thank you Daniel. Lovely to see you both again. Don't forget our winter opportunities, with the log fires to enjoy with a glass of something special.
