Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely well equiped apartment in an idyllic setting. Have really enjoyed our stay. Peaceful but enhanced by the antics of the golfers on the 18th - free entertainment. We will be back.

An absolutely fantastic venue wiyh everything you would want. The location is central to so much for the kids including super beaches and a great adventure park. Our two just loved it. Geoff and Linda make excellent hosts - charming, pleasant and always keen to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.We will definitely harbour fond memories of our stayand hope to return. A huge thank you. Nina Panesar Solihull



We enjoyed this luxurious apartment with its excellent open views. Near to the centre of Watton with shops and eating places and within easy reach of many lovely places to visit - it was the ideal holiday location. So often holiday lets do not meet expectations - this one certainly did.

Excellent self catering accommodation in a peaceful location.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for four people, although we were only two. Quiet location with a lovely view over the golf course from the lounge and garden. We saw beautiful sunsets, deer crossing the golf course on two occasions, and plenty of bird song (late May, early June). We would go there again and will certainly recommend it to friends.

Only disappointment, and nothing to do with the accommodation, is the nearby Club House at the excellent Richmond Park Golf Club. It would have been a short walk away for an evening meal, but the menu looked very basic and they stop serving food at 4.00pm.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carole and Martin for your comments on the enjoyable stay that you had. The Golf Club restaurant opening times and menus vary a great deal depending on other bookings they have particularly in the evenings as most of the trade is during the day. Luckily there are some nice restaurants in the town within walking distance as well as others in nearby villages. Thank you for recommending Fairway View to your friends and family and I look forward to meeting you again on your return visit. Geoff

Property was perfect for us. Spacious, warm and facilities complete.

We stayed for 3 nights mid-week and had a great time. The accommodation had everything we needed (Sky TV; space; comfort; facilities; and location).

Owner's Response: Thank you John for your very positive 5 star review. I was very pleased that you, your wife and two children enjoyed your stay. Before you booked you asked for the speed of the internet (approx 35Mbps) which was very important for you and your family. I trust that unlimited downloads also helped!! Geoff

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three night break with our parents, one who has a mobility issue, so the walk in shower and bedrooms on one level were ideal. Geoff was a great host and a font of local knowledge. The facilities and location were excellent and Geoff's restaurant recommendations were spot on. We would definitely book this accommodation again and would recommend it to friends and family. Well done Geoff, however the photos do not give the accommodation the credit it deserves.

Owner's Response: Thank you Shilpi for your generous comments. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us. Your children told me that they had a great time at all the places they visited and particularly liked the dinosaur park although your son(nearly 2) said it was scary!! Hope to see you again. Geoff

Comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and comfortable apartment on the edge of the village - easy to relax - especially in the garden overlooking the golf course. Several restaurants / pubs within 15-20 minute walk. A great base for exploring the area.

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Another perfect stay

This must be around my sixth or seventh stay at Fairway View.

As usual I’ll repeat one takes the photos with a pinch of salt and you expect worse in reality, but in this case what you see is what you get. It was beautiful, spotless and smelt nice and fresh. You can park your car under a car port right outside, so if raining you don’t get wet getting luggage in.

It was spotless and fresh accommodation with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, each with plenty of storage (wardrobe space and drawer space). Bathroom had a lot of towels provided, 6 if I remember. Sky TV with lots of channels. Nice touches like milk in the fridge, packet of chocolate biscuits and tea / coffee, and the kitchen and appliances were spotless and worked like they would at home. Drying rack and baby cot are also provided (very rare), along with baby booster chair. 6 seat dining table

Comfy leather couch with recliners each side, and two arm chairs provide comfy seating for 5 in the lounge, dishwasher tablets and laundry powder. Stunning setting right on the golf course, spent each evening enjoying glass of wine reading the papers watching the sunset and dusk golfers.

Two sets of patio doors that can be opened out on to the golf course. There is a table outside with plenty of chairs for alfresco dining. Decent 10MB wifi (for Norfolk)

Can’t recommend enough.
