Excellent self catering accommodation in a peaceful location.
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.
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.
Cosy and warm with lovely view
Lovely cosy, warm and clean apartment with pleasant views across the golf course. We all slept well in the comfortable beds, and I am sure we shall be back for a return visit in the not too distant future.
Thank you Deidre for your positive comments.
It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family and learn about some of the family's history in Norfolk.
I look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
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).
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!!
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.
Thank you Wendi and Mitch for your very kind comments. Travelling from Wales to visit your family in Norfolk you decided to come here at short notice to treat your parents to a surprise short family break away which was lovely. It was a real,pleasure to have you all stay and I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Geoff
Very good size property with a beautiful garden
Lovely 3nights stay at this property. This ground floor apartment has all the necessary amenities. It shares common boundary with the beautiful Golf course. Very helpful owner.
Thanks Geoffrey for making our stay very comfortable....
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.
Comfortable and relaxing.
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.
Tim,Wendy and Edward

It was also nice to here your good comments about the restaurants and pubs that you could walk to and from the apartment.
