Desmond (a medical doctor, keen angler and passionate gardener) is at the helm of an ever-evolving garden & Philda is responsible for the guesthouse. We bought Fairview (circa 1861) in 1996 and took up the challenge to restore the original Bergsig farmhouse - bearing in mind that the real challenge in restoring & maintaining any old building remains staying true to the authenticity of the structure. After all these years we still enjoy sharing our garden and welcoming guests into our home.

Probably because of the foliage, but had a couple spiders/bugs but nothing serious. Could use a better heating system or maybe I didn't know how to work it.
Nice room, comfortable, very good wifi. I would most definitely stay here again! Nice people and very good breakfast.

The house is very old and furnished with a lot of antiques. It makes for a very special stay. The garden is beautiful and I loved Juno, the most placid and friendly dog in George!
