Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Our holiday was fantastic, made even better by wonderful facilities, wonderful weather and wonderful hosts. The cottage was stocked with everything you needed. There was so much to do that one week just wasn’t enough to fit everything in. The swimming pool was amazing. Idyllic, secluded, luxurious. There are not many places as good as this; it would be very hard to beat! Sept 2011.
  2. The property surpassed our expectations. All rooms were clean and comfortable and the kitchen well appointed. The dining room was perfect for our morning get together for our full English breakfast. The brochure did not do justice to to the gardens etc. The putting green,barbeque area and especially the swimming pool were over and above what we had imagined. It was a perfect hide-away for the family celebration. Aug 2011.
  3. Excellent house and garden, everything we expected and could have wished for. We enjoyed feeding the Koi. No negatives. Michelle and Dennis were very welcoming. We were able to arrange a balloon flight for our son (Merlin balloons, based nearby). We were lucky with the weather that day and he really enjoyed the experience (not cheap though). Aug 2011.
  4. The property is really suited to large family groups. The beds are comfortable and there is great storage space. The house is in good order. The pool is great. June 2011.
  5. Wonderful property. Loads to do if it rained, but the weather was great. Sainsburys delivered, they had no trouble finding the property,(a problem we have had in the past at other properties). Our ages are 2 to 60, and we all enjoyed ourselves. April 2011.
  6. Spacious and generally in good condition. Sept 2010.
  7. We liked the countryside position, the quiet, the exceptional sport and play facilities, and the overall comfort of the house. Sept 2010.
  8. There were many addional facilities that helped to make the holiday especially the warm swimming pool. Aug 2010.
  9. The facilities for entertainment ie trampoline, pool, putting, games room and box of games in the porch were excellent. Even feeding the koi carp in the fishpond became a source of pleasure for them. We all had a very enjoyable time using these facilities. June 2010.
  10. Lovely house with superb facilities for all the family be they young children or grandparents.Good position with easy access to city, sea and countyside. May 2010.
  11. Everything about the place was thoughtfully prepared. The rooms, the garden, the games room. It was just lovely. March 2010.
  12. A really warm and comfortable property, the facilities were superb. Very welcoming owners. Jan 2010.
  13. Fairfield House provided a wide range of amenities and activities for our 3-generation family holiday - we had a wonderful time! The garden, pool, games room and house all exceeded expectations and we amused ourselves without leaving the property for the whole week. The 5 children, aged 1 - 7, especially enjoyed the pool and trampoline, as did we all. Aug 2009.
  14. The gardens and pool were a great assett to the property. July 2009.
  15. This was a truly wonderful holiday for my family. The house was better than described. In the mornings we drove to different castles, beaches and many quaint little villages. The house was so convenient and a short drive to the attractions. The outlet centre in Ashford gave us lots of designer bargains, a real must for the serious shopper. The afternoons were spent by and in the pool. The local pub’s meals were truly value for money, with a extensive range of large meals. This holiday to us was 5 star plus. The house was very clean and spacious. The snooker room and table tennis rooms were great fun we had to drag the children out of there sometimes. Sorry I am gushing but we loved this holiday. July 2009.
  16. The house was more than you could have dreamt for. Beautiful, clean and luxurious. Sept 2008.
  17. A home away from home. Beautiful, clean and comfortable. Nov 2007.
  18. We were delighted with the accommodation. The owners were exceptionally fiendly and helpful. April 2007.
  19. Owners were extremely helpful and friendly. June 2007.
  20. Fairfield House is very attractive and the garden is perfect for a family. My grown children and grandchildren made full use of the pool, trampoline and putting. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather for the last weekend of the season and, of course, this helped, but the garden really enhances the property. We also enjoyed a nice woodland walk with the children by using the narrow footpath access situated just up the road from the house. Sept 2007.
