Located on a historic farm near Chapel Hill, N.C., surrounding The Fearrington House Inn, Fearrington Village is home to restaurants, boutiques, bookstores, gardens, a farmers’ market anda beer garden. For a delicious farm-to-fork meal, go to The Fearrington House Restaurant. There, you’ll find intimate tables, seasonal dishes and a wine list with more than 800 selections. Arrive early to stroll through the romantic gardens that surround the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant. Be sure to check out the herb beds there — you might see those same spices later in your dinner.
The Fearrington Granary offers a more causal dining spot, and it hosts wine and beer classes once a month. Also in the village is the independent shop McIntyre’s Books as well as the accessories and gift haven Dovecote. Outdoor lovers will want to take a trip to the farm and, of course, stop by The Belted Goat for ice cream. But if nature’s not your thing, you might feel more comfortable spending a few hours at The Spa at Fearrington.
