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.

Pam and Rick Maude. Leeds.

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.

Ground Floor apartment overlooking golf Course. Walking distance to town centre
average rating of 4.875 based on 17 reviews

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

Owner's Response: Philip and MaryJane thank you very much for your generous and positive review of your stay in Fairway View. It must have been very frustrating watching all the golfers pass by and being too busy to play. A large percentage of our guests do not play golf but still enjoy watching them play - maybe you will have a chance to play on another occasion. Best regards Geoff Severn

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

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
