Picturesque Property

  • 5 of 5

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...

Fordwich Folly is a dream. It is a beautiful house surrounded by vines. The house is beautifully decorated, the furniture is fantastic and all three bedrooms are equipped with luxury linen. There are two beautiful decks where you can sit and enjoy this little paradise. We highly recommend this beautiful house, it truly feels like you are in paradise.

Beautifully renovated house in a picturesque spot

  • 5 of 5

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.

A stunning property with glorious views and pool!

  • 5 of 5

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!
