Absolutely fantastic weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for my 30th birthday and a weekend away with friends. We all had an absolutely amazing time, the house itself was wonderful, such a beautiful house and we all felt very at home. The kitchen was well equipped, as was the lounge with TV, DVDs, plenty of seating and large dining room. The garden was beautiful and we all had such a great time in the heated swimming pool, playing golf on the putting green and going out for bike rides. The trampoline was also so much fun and took us back to our youth! We had a great BBQ in the evening and the BBQ area was also well equipped. All in all it was a lovely peaceful location, a beautiful house and a 30th birthday to remember. Thanks to Michelle for all your help and for making the booking so easy and our stay so enjoyable!!

Amazing weekend away with friends

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here in September and I have to say it was much better than we hoped for. My dealings with Michelle leading up to our stay was faultless. Always responding to my emails and providing answers to any questions I had. Having arrived, I realised I shouldn’t have bothered as much as I did, as the house had everything we needed and much more. There were eleven of us, all friends, and it turned out to be a wonderful reunion. The boys were keen on watching a boxing match which would only be shown on one of the pay per view type channels so I asked Michelle if it was possible, she said yes without any hesitation and booked it for us. The house was spacious and welcoming and there was enough space for 11 adults to eat together and move around freely. We enjoyed cooking with the Aga as well, it was the first time for a lot of us but we soon got used to it! The games room was exceptionally good – we had a good time playing table tennis and snooker. Because it was a slightly damp weekend, we didn’t get to try the heated pool but we had an amazing barbecue in the “Grill House” as we daubed it. Feeding the fish was an evening delight; I had to be careful not to overfeed them though. We only left the house once, to visit the nearby Great Chart Golf & Leisure centre on Saturday. All in all we totally enjoyed the stay and would recommend the house to anyone as it is suitable for groups of all ages.

A lovely weekend spent in a gorgeous rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

A large group of friends stayed at this house for a long weekend. Our dealings with the owners in the run up to our stay were easy and upon arrival we found the property to be as good as we hoped. The game's room was an excellent bonus and provided hours of entertainment for us. We would recommend this place to others and may well return ourselves.

Another great holiday at this lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit for 3 generations of the family & we'd recommend it for a wonderful family holiday! As before we all enjoyed the excellent sporting facilities and the 5 children, aged 3 - 10, loved the trampoline. The house and garden are spacious enough to have organised a nature walk around the garden, treasure hunts and mini-olympics. The roomy lounge areas, dining room and games room enabled small groups to engage in different activities undisturbed, although the swimming pool and barbecue area were the focal point throughout the week. As in August 2009 we did not leave the premises all week except for a celebration dinner at the White Horse, Bilsington.

Highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Fairfield House was wonderful. Ten friends comfortably fitted and we made great use of the huge kitchen (and Aga!), games room, pool and beautiful surrounding Kent countryside.

The house was immaculate and welcoming, with some really nice personal touches throughout.

We will be going back next year if it's not booked up!

Many thanks!

60th birthday family weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property and garden were all we were hoping for and more. The weekend was spent with everyone playing games - there was plenty to do for the grandchildren (aged 3 and 4) as well as the adults. The house was well equipped and comfortable and the owners very pleasant and helpful. All in all we enjoyed the stay immensely and would recommend the house to anyone looking for a venue for a family party
