About Ben Fairn
This is us.
Ben Fairn purchased this House in 2017
Why Ben Fairn chose Somerset Village
I love historic houses on Big properties, and this one, origionally built and completed in 1789 with 2.5 acres, is one of those. Its fully modernized, new appliances, air con etc, premium memory foam beds etc. We bought it not just to rent, but to live in the off season, if there ever is one.
What makes this House unique
Location is superb, close to stores, and across the street from the beach. Lots of flowers and some new fruit trees, another one of my new hobbies. If your a rose affictionado, read up on the finding of the famous Belfield Rose in 1953 right here on the property. It was found by Mr. Richard Thomson, Chairman of the Old Rose Committee of the American Rose Society . Its positive identification by Richard was completed in 1956, The R. chinensis semperflorens or “Slater’s Crimson China”, better know to Bermudians and now around the world as the “Belfield” rose. http://rosesinbermuda.com/?page_id=31

A week at Belfield Estate
Our stay at Belfield Estate for our family gathering of nine, from a todler of three to the Old Man of 70 (me) was just right, and a pleasure, for all of us. What a location, what a house (and cabin) with character and history, and with excellent modernizations that made our stay quite comfortable, and what a fine owner/manager of property in Mr. Ben Fairn. This was our first visit to Bermuda, and we hope to return—and to Belfield Estate—some day.
Michael, it was a pleasure to host you and your wonderful family at Belfield estate. Your were a great guests and left the house in great shape. You are most certainly welcome back at anytime, and at a special rate for sure. Glad your home safe and sound, and look forward to your return.
Great.Our family of three generations including babies really love the estate. Hope to come back.
I love nature and there are beautiful fruit trees, flowering bushes, papaya, banana trees all around the house. The picture of the house in VRBO doesn't serve the justice because the inside of the house from comfort to decor is up to date. The house location is great for young kids. Next to the park with play ground and beach. A short walk to the market and close to the world best horseshoe beach.
Hey guys, glad you enjoyed the property. It's definately become recogized as a great family house. Hope to see you again soon, and thanks for leaving the house in such good shape.
Next time perhaps rent a couple of twizzies to get around.
Next to the beach with a playground and minutes from the grocery store. Excellent location.
Thanks for the stars and glad you enjoyed your stay.
