I needed a place to stay while visiting relatives around the corner, and my wife found this. What a find! As usual one takes the photos with a pinch of salt and you expect worse in reality, but in this case what you see is what you get.
It was beautiful, spotless and smelt nice and fresh. You can park your car under a car port right outside, so if raining you don't get wet getting luggage in. As I was settling in Geoff (the owner) who happened to be staying upstairs at the time popped down. A friendly guy, who showed me around the property, pointed out where things are.
Do not confuse with the accommodation at the golf club itself, as those are very substandard compared to this place.
So, the plus points:
It was spotless and fresh accommodation with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom. Bathroom had a lot of towels provided, 6 if I remember. Sky TV with lots of channels. Nice touches like milk in the fridge, packet of chocolate biscuits and tea / coffee, and the kitchen and appliances were spotless and worked like they would at home. Comfy leather couch with recliners each side, dishwasher tablets and laundry powder, along with a wash basket and drying rack (very rare in these places). Stunning setting right on the golf course, spent each evening enjoying glass of wine reading the papers watching the sunset and dusk golfers. Two sets of patio doors that can be opened to enjoy the air and a friendly owner who doesn't intrude at all and a pleasure to talk to. Also has 10MB wifi, which for Norfolk is like the CERN accelerator.
The cable on the iron was exposed, but I mentioned that to Geoff who said it would be replaced straight away and offered me his if required. They outsource the cleaning and weren't informed hence they didn't know, otherwise I believe it would have been replaced already.
Overall 5/5 and I'm already booked it again and taking my wife and daughter back in a few weeks to escape the Hong Kong summer (where we live).

"Peace and Luxury in Norfolk"
What a discovery! This appartment was a real find. Situated on the edge of the golf course, it was a real joy to sit peacefully and watch the golfers go by or just admire the lovely views and birds n… More
Julie thank you for your very complementary comments. It was a joy to have you and your very active 82 year old mother, Glenys, stay with us. You both took advantage of the area and it's many attractions during your seven day stay. We were delighted to hear you planned to return again in the future and hopefully look forward to seeing you again.

"A beautiful apartment with a great view across the Golf Club"
We found our accommodation at Fairview View an excellent choice as the property is beautifully presented and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we could have wished for as we prepared our evening meal. We enjoyed the view over the golf course from the living room.
The accommodation is well placed to explore the Norfolk towns and countryside, we visited Norwich, Thetford and Bury St Edmonds also the Broads.The owners were kindly attentive and provided plenty of literature about the area.
Thank you Judi and Anne for your encouraging comments.It was a pleasure to have two long standing friends stay and see you both have a great time exploring Norfolk and Suffolk. We are also pleased you found the apartment and the facilities to your liking.

"Very comfortable property, fulfills every need"
Feeling very welcome in this comfortable and very well equipped and spacious apartment. Geoff and Linda were great to rely on whenever necessary. All rooms high quality furnished and excellent kitchen and bathroom. Enjoyed great variety of TV programs and we loved the carport. View over the golf course is really nice and relaxing. Watton town centre is nearby with all amenities. Norfolk area offers great variety of activities for all. Bus to Norwich twice per hour.
Maria and Adriaan
Thank you for your complementary comments.As you drove here from Holland it was interesting to hear that you had always thought Norfolk was very flat and almost treeless like the West coast of your country. You were amazed how scenic and different it was. Even though you stayed for two weeks you commented that you needed more time to visit everything you wanted to see.We are pleased you enjoyed the apartment and the many Sky TV channels.

"fantastic apartment in a stunning location"
we stayed in Fairway View for a week and were impressed by everything the property had to offer. We were travelling as a couple and also had a baby staying with us during the days and the apartment had everything we needed and more, the apartment was immaculate and very well equipped with modern fixtures and furnishings. There was adequate space in the apartment for a group to have dinner and host and the well equipped kitchen would ensure that you had everything you needed to prepare that dinner.
the location is fantastic with a view looking out over a challenging par 4 hole on the golf course, and we spent a few hours during the week sat on the patio watching the golfers. Also at the bottom of the garden there is a bird feeder that attracts some very nice wildlife (including hedgehogs at night as we found out by literally bumping into them) and the golf course itself is host to deer and a whole variety of birds.
The apartment has everything you could possibly need from a holiday let such as free WIFI and sky TV with all the movie and sport channels and also the finishing touches were nice with a stock of everything you could need for a short stay like tea, coffee, biscuits, washing powder, dishwasher tablets and the list goes on.
during our stay we also got to meet the owners Geoff and Linda who were lovely and asked if everything was ok with the apartment and also checked that the travel cot had been put up for us as they knew we would be having a baby at the apartment.
Thank you Zoey and Barry for your complimentary comments.
It was lovely to have you here and little baby Joshua was a joy.We hope to see you all again in the future.

There were four in our party including 2 teenage children so the free wi-fi and sky tv was very popular. They did lose the internet signal at one point which didn't bother us but it was a must fo… More
Thank you Julie and Paul for your review of the apartment and your holiday experience.
The Sky+HD tv and wifi is very popular with both adults and particularly teenagers.Anne and Chris who look after the apartment when we are away are excellent and we are glad they got your boys back on line quickly after the internet hiccup.
We are pleased that you hope to return at sometime in the future - you will be very welcome.

"Peacefully quiet and relaxing."
Well, what can I say. Such a relaxing chill out place to be. The quiet location is one of the things that attracted us to choose Fairway View.
Geoff and Linda were very attentive hosts and helped by recommending places to visit and eat out. The villa is very clean, very well equipped and very, very comfy beds!
Great to have the full Sky package and the WiFi so teenage daughter could keep up with her buddies.
If you want to chill, this is the place to go and if you want golf, it's on your doorstep.
Thanks again Geoff & Linda, see you again sometime.
David, Susanna and Jess.
Thank you David and Susannah for your complimentary comments. You were ready for a break from a busy schedule and we are pleased you all found the apartment and area fitted the bill.

Ian and Iona thank you for your encouraging comments.We are pleased you and your daughter enjoyed the apartment and setting including the wildlife (golfers included!)Your observation to us how the climate in the East is considerably better than your home in Wales perhaps explains why we get quite a number of guests from there.

From the moment you arrive Geoff & Linda look after you. Tea, coffee milk & biscuits are waiting for you to ease you in to holiday mode. The apartment is like a home from home with everything you could ever need! Beautiful kitchen with dishwasher and full size fridge freezer. You also get included a Sky package + free Wi-Fi. Great place for golfers as your on the golf course and you get a discount.
Philip and Ann thank you for your kind comments - it was a pleasure to have you stay. Your very sprightly octogenarian mother,Jean, who has an amazing passion for aircraft and particularly helicopters was a joy. Even though none of you knew much about golf you thoroughly enjoyed watching the frustrations of amateur play from the patio on returning from your many excursions.

"home from home"
Received a very warm and informative welcome from the owner Geoff.
The property is a lovely ground floor appartment with a great location on the 18th fairway of the local golf course that as well as providing entertainment from the frustrated golfers also creates a haven for the many birds that visit the garden as well as the deer that roam the fairway in the early morning.
Every need while away from home is catered for including free wi fi, sky + tv, excellent kitchen facilities and bathroom.
Watton town centre only a 15 min walk away and has many shops, pubs and palces to eat if that is what you need.
Location is good for Norwich and Thetford and places like Newmarket(for the races) and Cambridge are 30 mins or so away.
Thank you Wayne and Louise for your encouraging comments. It was a pleasure having you and your daughter stay and we were pleased that you had a successful time at Newmarket races. You said that you will bring your golf clubs on your next visit- the wildlife will then be able to watch you in action! Geoff and Linda
