  • "It was a lovely home we will remember for every."

    We loved the garden and playing golf in as a family. This home had a vibe with it totally worth very penny with big and spacious house and huge garden. Just a friendly suggestion if they put a clock on the wall somewhere, that would make you it easier to keep track of the time other then that it was a lovely home.

  • "An amazing house, with a fantastic garden!"

    We were a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) and we absolutely loved FairWinds. We had everything we needed. The photos of the garden do not do it justice! It's huge! We cooked for 5 out of the 7 nights and loved eating in the Dining Room, looking out at the garden. I enjoyed snuggling in the Conservatory, reading my book, sipping wine or having a cuppa. The bed in the Master Bedroom was so comfortable and both showers were great for us all getting ready. The neighbour Peter was very helpful, sharing his feedback about local restaurants and places. We went to Alton Towers for the day, only half hour drive through beautiful countryside and amazing views. We visited Monkey Forest, which was so good and again, in a beautiful area. We went on a Steam Train in Rudyard, which was a great day out too. And finally decided to pay for a National Trust pass and used the opportunity to go to Little Moreton House, only half hour drive away. A good meal out was Holly Bush Inn - we felt like we were in Emmerdale! Everywhere we went, we appreciated coming back to the beautiful house of FairWinds.

  • "The property was large and had plenty of room the bed in the second bedroom was extremely uncomfortable."

    The heating took a very long time to make the property warm and the hot water only was enough for 2 showers and then we had to wait for it to warm up again. We did know about this from previous reviews so we’re prepared but for a large house and the cost it really should have a more adequate hot water arrangement. Overall the property was good. Peter the neighbour was very helpful but not overly intrusive. The garden was lovely.

    Thank you for your comments . However I am quite bewildered about your comments regarding hot water availability for showers ! Fairwainds has two showers ! One is supplied by heated hot water and the other is Electric with a non stop supply. You obviously did not use the second shower ! .The second shower was installed due to previous customer feedback . There is an abundance of hot water available for 6 people . I would not expect any complaints about this Property Owner

  • "I stayed here with my sister, 2 nephews aged 4 and 8 and my 12 year old daughter."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fairwinds- although set back from a main road we didn’t hear any traffic. The house was perfect fro what we needed- large with ample room for us all. The 2 lounge areas came in handy when the kids wanted to watch different films from me and my sister. The kitchen had everything we could of needed and is perfectly fine for cooking up meals in the evenings. We experienced no problems with the water system- we all had showers/ baths one after another with no issues- we liked that the bath and shower were separate and also there is a new shower room that will be available from our checkout date- this is particularly handy for saving time when getting ready. The garden is very big and the kids loved running around in it. We would love to stay at Fairwinds again and are already planning our next break...the only thing we would love more is if it had 4 bedrooms but that’s no fault of the property. The smart TVs were great and we loved the mix of modern/ more original features. There is a co op within walking distance and restaurants/pubs which is great. We probably would have also loved the addition of another throw blanket for the chillier evenings as there is only 1 in the wardrobe. All in all we are looking forward to another break away at Fairwinds...it was the perfect location for us to see some of the sights and only about 30mins away from Alton Towers which we visited on 2 days.

  • "Fairwinds is a sizable property on a main road."

    It has good links to all the main places to go locally and for shopping/eating. However the property is in need of some investment. The kitchen is functional but dated (except extractor fan which was broken), the hot water system is old fashioned (one shower and then a 20 min wait for another one) and there is NO access through the main front door. The conservatory door at the rear is openable (however this was after we requested this) as normally is is locked and has a metal bar over it. This was a great disappointment to us. However the owners parents (who are keeping it for their son) were lovely people and came out promptly to sort out concerns. The main road is loud (especially in the mornings) but there is secondary glazing. Just be warned some of the windows are old and appear to be nailed/sealed shut. Do take a fan (if in the summer). The garden is a super size for children to run around and play. There is a sectioned off area where there is a bees nest currently which was a concern. Also there is a gardener who visits daily, which was unexpected. Overall we had a good holiday, enjoyed the brilliant garden to play in and relax and found some new places to visit locally. If you have young children I would say unless they are confident walkers and can manage stairs this may not be the place for you.

    I was dismayed to read your negative feedback concerning your stay, especially after you had written such a nice note for my parents stating what a lovely time you have had, and what a lovely house it was! I would like to address your points; 1. We have had no complaints regarding hot water availability in the previous 12 months from any customer. However, at the end of the season we are planning to add a second bathroom, to make it more comfortable for guests. 2. No access through front door , There is absolutely no need to access via the double front doors, as there is another front door at the drive way, which gives easy access from your cars. 3. The bolt on conservatory door, this was removed immediately on request so why mention it at all? 4. The bees at the bottom of the garden are Honey Bees, and are so far away from the house that there could never be a concern. I also feel its not right to kill these bees, when there is a shortage of Honey Bees in the UK. As you said the garden is huge as you can see from photos 5. Stairs .. Your comments would apply to any set of stairs in any 2 storey house .. In fact for anybody looking at the photos, they would see that the stairs are split with a little landing and are the lowest flight of stairs that you could possibly find. Finally, we've had nothing but good comments from customers and we understand that we need to renovate part of the house, but as you can see Fairwinds is a dated property which retains much of the original features from the 1930s.

The spacious rooms offer themselves fantastically to a family get-together with a seemingly endless garden for the children to play in, and for you to relax.

Passing through the original wood-panelled hallway, you come through to the sitting room where the classic decor continues, and you can take up a good book in the window seat while the fireplace warms you from across the room.

Gather in the dining room which overlooks the delightful garden, before taking an after-dinner drink into the conservatory on those chilly nights, If the sun is still up, then you can go out onto the patio to make the most of the summer evening.

The stunning feature window leading up the stairs takes you to the first floor which contains three good-sized bedrooms; a super-king and two doubles along with a bathroom with a bath, shower and basin, and a separate WC.

To the outside there is plenty of room for five cars in the driveway at the front of the house, and the back the garden will be a haven in the summer time for children and adults alike.

The nearest Co-op is 0.5 miles away, nearest Golf club, Greenway Hall GC open to public with driving range and restaurant is 1.0 miles, nearest restaurant is Ego at the Hollybush and is 0.8 miles,stafford Arms Pub is an 18th century building and is 2.5 miles.

The Caldon Canal runs through Endon so is perfect for a spontaneous walk and lunch at one of the canalside pubs, or take yourself over to Rudyard Lake for a boat trip to take in the almost untouched natural scenery.

For the thrill-seekers, you won't be able to resist popping over to Alton Towers, being just a 30-minute drive away, this is one of the best theme parks in the UK so take the opportunity to test your limits!
