  • "Fair Place is a beautiful cottage and a hidden gem full of character."

    The cottage was extremely clean and cosy with a lovely fireplace. The beds were really comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved the special treats waiting for us on arrival, plus coffee and tea. The lemon drizzle cake was gorgeous! Our son had lots of fun counting the mice. Although the weather did not allow for spending time in the garden, it is very well upkept and must be lovely in summer.

  • "Fair Place is a gorgeous cottage, the pictures did not really do it justice; it is comfortable and homely, well equipped and beautifully clean."

    The owners have thought of everything to make it a perfect stay. Location is great with lots within walking distance including a good choice of restaurants/pubs/takeaways as well as the seafront, and there are some lovely places to visit within a short drive. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend Fair Place.

    Hornsea is a lovely quaint seaside town with just enough going on to make it most enjoyable, larger resorts are well within easy reach but Hornsea works well for us, we love it and a stay at Fair Place cottage makes for a most memorable holiday.

    Sadly, the bathroom downstairs, bedrooms upstairs and in between was the fireman’s pole very steep spiral stairs going straight up was lethal in the middle of the night.

  • "Amazed at how clean the cottage was, this particularly comforting and put us at ease during covid restrictions (week before Freedom Day)."

    The living room is a little tight and not very comfortable with 2 single sofa chairs and one 2 seater sofa - that is our only complaint! The kitchen space made up for it as it was so light and airy and my two children (aged 7 and 8) were happy to sit at the dining table to play games, cards or get creative. The garden was a fantastic bonus! Used for morning coffees and relaxing evenings - fabulous! And a park and big green space for ball games literally across the road. Well equipped kitchen, lots of unexpected extras such as condiments, tea towels, washing up liquid and sponge, numerous cleaning products and anti-bac wipes. Even the bathroom had shower gels and bath soaks! Do take note of the advertising due to the iron spiral staircase - not a good property for under 5s or people with mobility issues.

  • "There was everything I needed for a lovely stay in fair place cottage."

    It was very comfortable and a lovely private garden to sit and enjoy a drink in the evening and not overlooked. There was ample shops nearby and eateries to accommodate most tastes. I could imagine the spiral staircase to be troublesome to certain less able bodied persons, as it was enough taking a suitcase up the stairs, but I also think it's a lovely feature of the house. I think the upmost care and attention to detail has been made to make my holiday feel safe and enjoyable.

  • "50 years of staying in Gites,Villas and cottages on holidays ."

    We have never stayed in such a well loved and immaculate premises. Every thing you need is at hand in the cottage. Even cookery books. If your staying here there is a large Tesco’s with Petrol pumps less than 5 mins drive all your provisions can be purchased there. Look up the Legendary Local Fish and Chip Restaurant /Takeaway. Pubs within 150 metres in High St but this cottage is away from the High St and does not suffer any traffic or surrounding noise. We hope to return but suspect you will have to get in early for bookings. It is also a short walk to the Hornsea Mere and a larger walk to the Sea Front. Be aware people talk to you in the streets!!!Us Southerners aren’t used to that. Also lovely garden to sit out in with neighbours cat that comes to see you. You won’t be disappointed in booking these premises. Thanks

  • "Fairplace is an immaculately finished, clean and warm cottage for two or three adults."

    We appreciated the central heating plus instant heat of the gas fire and continuously available hot water in a week at the end of October so definitely would be great for Summer or Winter stay. The cottage is truly 'fully equipped' and the owners have taken particular care with bedding and furnishing to ensure that visitors feel comfortable and 'at home'. ( Actually MUCH better than my home!) Potential visitors should note the description of the feature spiral wrought iron staircase- which was no problem for us- and the beautifully presented downstairs bathroom. We were very impressed by the light and airy kitchen diner, too. The cottage is very convenient, only 1 minute walk from cafes, 7 minutes walk from Hornsea Mere and only a few minutes more to the sea front and beach. There is parking in front of the cottage and fast WiFi. We were very impressed by Fairplace and had a great stay. Thank you!

Stairs weren't a problem once our suitcases were upstairs, although we're not as tall as some of the other people who've mentioned them before. All in all, a brilliant cottage.

    There were a couple of things which could be a problem for a group of 4 people. The beautiful spiral staircase could be a hazard for children or any person with a disability. The second bedroom was smaller than the main one and the double bed was against the wall. I emphasise that given these, very small, inconveniences for us we praise the owners for the excellence of the hospitality. Brenda and Malcolm

  • "The cottage is very well maintained and in a pretty location very close to The Mere."

    Shops, including a wonderful butcher and restaurants were a few minutes walk away, no cars needed. We found it was within walking distance of the beach. I did know about the spiral staircase beforehand but by the end of the week I could have done without it!! On a slightly more serious note the stairs are difficult to negotiate with suitcases...soft bags are better and of course the bathroom is downstairs which may be a problem for some. The small bedroom is fine but be aware the bed is only accessible from one side and also had a footboard so no climbing in and out by the foot of the bed. Do not let this put you off, the cottage is so clean and fresh. We found the enclosed garden perfect on warm days for breakfast, coffee, evenings and enjoying a drink at the end of the day. The lovely fresh flowers, coffee machine, fresh milk, tea and delicious homade lemon drizzle cake were unexpected and a very welcome touch. Thank you so much.

    .. located in a quiet little spot but close to the mere and a nice walk to the sea front via the town centre, it is beautifully furnished, beautifully kept and with luxurious towels and an excellent range of utensils pots and pans. In addition a lovely well kept rear garden which was really quite a sun trap and where we enjoyed a cuppa when we arrived, along with the lovely home made lemon drizzle cake and quality biscuits left for us... and breakfast every morning in the sunshine too. Round the corner was a little Italian restaurant, reasonably priced and which exceeded expectations. On an evening when it got chilly we switched on the gas "log burning" stove... very cozy! All in all a great little place...

    Unfortunately, we found it uncomfortable to relax in and should have paid more notice to the spiral staircase and downstairs loo. We both tend to go to the loo at night and navigating the stairs in the middle of the night proved a nightmare. My husband is 6ft 6 and do the low beams etc throughout the cottage became another challenge. We felt a little claustrophobic and so cut short our stay. THe cottage is really well located as is Hornsea itself, I would imagine it becomes a dream in the summer months when you can sit outside.
