You love antiques, but you do not want the rooms to feel ‘old’. You want a warm room in winter, a cool room in summer, a good breakfast, space for your luggage, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer, a small fridge, good quality coffee in your room, a firm mattress, percale linen, good quality pillows - that is essential. At Fairview Historic Homestead you’ll find all of that and more...

This authentic Cape Georgian house (circa 1861) sympathetically restored as a boutique B&B, targeting guests with an appreciation for gardens and history.
