The guide price for the freehold building and business was £795,0000.
The new owners are Peter and Sarah Garnett, who have made the move into the hospitality trade in the North York Moors National Park after selling their house in Harrogate.
The Fairhaven is an Edwardian property which has recently been refurbished and includes nine en-suite letting bedrooms which sleep 18 people. There is also family size accommodation for the owners; a large private car park; an expansive garden and lovely views from the property.

Many people dream of upping sticks and moving to the country to run a hospitality business and Peter and Sarah have succeeded in their ambition. It is the perfect country guest house from which to enjoy the delights of the North York Moors National Park and other surrounding locations.”
