Beautiful gardens, great pool and lovely bedrooms

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay in the property and got full use of the gardens and swimming pool in lovely, sunny weather. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. The bedrooms were beautifully kept and spacious. The accommodation comfortably hosted 4 children and 7 adults. I would recommend Fairstowe to others.

Excellent location and condition of property

5 of 5
We found this cottage an ideal location for exploring the local countryside. There are a number of footpaths nearby and the property's deck/balcony makes you feel right in the heart of the natural landscape. The cottage is well furnished and equipped and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We fully intend to return.
