We had a wonderful weekend at Fordwich Folly. It's a beautifully restored cottage, with every need catered for, and is in such a peaceful and tranquil location. The views are magnificent! We'll definitely be back :)
Fordwich Folly is a beautifully renovated house! They have kept many of the original features whilst ensuring you want for nothing during your stay. The views from every window and door is what really makes you feel that you've escaped the city and it's now time to sit with a cuppa and a good book! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back...

Beautifully renovated house in a picturesque spot
We had a wonderful Easter weekend at Fordwich Folly. Tony and Judy were consummate hosts: they provided wine from the vinyard and eggs from the chickens, made us delicious espressos and shared some stories. The house was cozy and lovely, with a verandah perfect for dining and relaxing and a pool that kept the kids entertained.
Perfect for 3 couples. Plenty of space. Great verandah, plus Bbq area for relaxing and taking in views. Very well-appointed and clean!
A stunning property with glorious views and pool!
A group of us stayed at Fordwich Folly over the weekend as a work retreat and could not have been more pleased with the quality of the finish and the friendliness of the owners. We were greeted with a bottle of wine each and enjoyed the comfortable furniture, two bathrooms and eat in kitchen immensely. The gorgeous lap pool was a bonus. We will be back!
