We have had an absolute blast at Fairfield! The house was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated and had everything we could have asked for. The grounds were spacious and picturesque and the whole house, despite being grand in size, was welcoming. We loved the hot tub and used it the entire weekend and loved the huge lawns for photos and selfies! It's such a special place and we would happily come back. In fact, many of the hens that attended said they would be planning to stay here for birthday celebrations etc. The staff have been great throughout the covid crisis. Dan was more than willing to refund the hens most of their money which was really reasonable and Tracey... Don't even get me started! She was PHENOMONAL and is the epitomy of hard work, pride and dedication! This place is her pride and joy and you can see why she's so proud of it. The support, help and above and beyond attitude that Tracey displayed in the lead up to the event was exceptional and she really really looked after us. From arranging an earlier viewing ahead of lockdown to getting the house ready earlier on the day of our arrival to help make things easier for us. A fantastic experience had by all! Thanks again, Fairfield!
Good communication during the booking process - house was even better than the pictures on the website. Great handover from the house keeper on arrival - very informative and helpful. Really well equipped house and was spotlessly clean. Ideal for our birthday celebrations - 20 guests.
As a family we have been to many holiday homes. This is by far the best house we have ever been to. The house was very spacious. There were nine adults and five children aged 7 months to 11. We all had more than enough space.
The bedrooms were all big with their own en-suite-all exceptionally clean.
The kitchen and utility room were very well equipped with two dishwashers,three fridges and more than enough utensils and plates etc-all with plenty of storage.
The gardens were excellent and very well maintained.
Everyone was more than happy with the movie room, games room, tennis court and of course the large hot tub.
We had Avery warm welcome.
I would recommend to anyone.
17 family members, ranging in age from 8 to 85, and two dogs, stayed at Fairfield House for the weekend to celebrate multiple birthdays and an engagement, and we could not have had a nicer time. The house has been designed and set up so well, every room is beautifully furnished and the bedrooms are so spacious. The jacuzzi, games room and tennis court kept everyone very well entertained, and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. There are so many choices of activities in the house and locally to do that the weekend passed in a flash.
We had caterers from Melbourne Place, who provided and served amazing tapas on the party night, which we held outdoors on the decking. Everyone agreed it was the perfect evening. We also had Sunday lunch at the Black Bull in Frosterley, which is a friendly traditional local pub and the food was lovely.
I would thoroughly recommend the whole experience, and we would all love to go again.
Fabulous house which was very tastefully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Fantastic huge space for a family get together whilst still ensuring everyone had their own privacy with multiple ensuites and bathrooms and multiple rooms to use if you wanted some quiet time to read or to watch tv. Hot tub, BBQ area and games room were a big hit. As was the very large garden and tennis court for the kids to play in. The huge well equipped kitchen was the central hub. All in all a fantastic house which met everyone's needs.
We all had a great time during the stay but there was a miscommunication between myself and house parties (not the owner of Fairfield House) where the original booking was for 18 and then we amended it to 20, but the house was only set up for 18 when we arrived. There was a very high additional cost to make up two extra beds (£220). Otherwise the house is amazing, and perfect for a hen do.
