Fairfield for meeting and musing
Fairfield is a wonderful place to get together; for holidays, business, learning and contemplation. Whatever your reason to meet, the house can adapt to meet your needs.
The house is available for short breaks, Monday to Friday and Friday to Sunday for much of the year.
During high season it is available for full weeks, Friday to Friday.
At certain times of year, on Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays, it is possible to book the house for the day.
The location is accessible but tranquil. It is easily reached by car, bus and rail
yet feels ‘away from it all’.
Fairfield is welcoming and practical, offering a unique venue where you can be comfortable and work efficiently. The warm atmosphere of the house invites you to feel at ease, encouraging creativity. There is peace and privacy here.
The generous proportions of the interior and grounds give you room to gather and space to think. There are places indoors and out where groups of up to 14 can sit together.
If you need to group round a table but the boardroom is too boring; the dining room could be ideal. The high ceiling and dual aspect contribute to making the room light and airy; as does the opening through to the kitchen. This also ensures the tea and coffee is handy! The Rayburn cooker always radiates a reassuring heat and on cold days there is the option of lighting the wood burning stove too.
The first floor lounge offers soft seating for 14; a perfect place for discussion and sharing ideas. The elevated position and triple aspect enable you to enjoy the delightful countryside views and appreciate the open surroundings.
There is a table outside where 14 can sit together if the occasion and weather are suitable!
In addition to the gathering spaces for up to 14 there are areas inside and out where smaller groups can sit. Inside: the sitting area in the dining room and the conservatory. Outside: the coffee deck and summerhouse.
To complement the accommodation offered, equipment is available to help you get the most from your meeting, it includes:
- Free wi-fi amplified throughout the house and garden.
- 50 inch TV on lounge wall - connect to your laptop to display content.
- A sturdy flipchart / whiteboard.
- A projector
- A portable screen

- Two vacuum dispenser flasks for hot drinks.
