A Devonshire countryside retreat just off the Jurassic Coast, with views over the Axe Valley, including full English breakfast

Located in the rolling and beautiful Devonshire countryside and with two acres of beautiful gardens, you can relax, switch off and breathe in oodles of clean, country air at Fairwater Head Hotel. At home in tranquil Hawkchurch, also known as the Village of Roses, this spectacular Edwardian country house is a ideal base to take in the surrounding panoramic views, go on long walks and explore the coastline of Lyme Regis – the Jurassic Coast and the carpet-making market town of Axminster are both on your doorstep

Indoors, the Main House rooms vary between traditional and modern in design, all echoing the house's Edwardian origins and overlooking the gardens or the serene Axe Valley. Holding an AA Rosette and recently having scored silver in the Taste of the West awards, dinner at the hotel's award-winning restaurant is a must. It's no wonder Fairwater Head Hotel shows off a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

The eggs you’ll have for breakfast here are particularly lovely because they’re local, free range, and supplied by Buckland Farm which sits 1,000-feet above sea level – one of the highest points of the Blackdown Hills in Somerset.
