More about Fairfield

Fairfield has an informal garden of great variety, surrounding the house which dates from the 12th century, but was largely rebuilt in Elizabethan times.

The 18th century park has fine trees and views of the Quantock Hills and the sea. The woodland garden is particularly interesting in spring, with many naturalised and unusual bulbs including snowdrops, crocuses, cyclamen, daffodils, fritillarias, wood anemones and bluebells among flowering Shrubs and Trees.

The walled former kitchen garden now includes interesting small trees, shrubs and grass, with a rose garden and herbaceous border

Children and adults can enjoy the small paved replica of the original maze.

There are many kinds of apple in the traditional orchard with daffodils planted in the grass, leading on to more woodland and pleasant walks.

Fairfield has much to enjoy whether exploring or relaxing.
