Catering And Accommodation

Well-known for their award-winning food, Fairwater Head specialise in combining locally-sourced food with stunning high-quality produce from further afield. From the eggs, which are sourced on the neighbouring Blackdown Hills, meat supplied from nearby Axminster and Bridport, and fish brought in from across the South Coast, they use the best that Dorset and Devon have to offer.


The Fairwater Head Hotel contains 16 fantastic ensuite bedrooms, all of which are available to your guests at a special rate when you book the hotel exclusively for your big day. A total of 36 guests can be accommodated, and there is also a lovely bridal suite.
