    All basic necessities were available. Large fridge and freezer and stove, electric kettle and microwave oven and plenty crockery and kitchen utensils in the communal kitchen. Good friendly atmosphere. I stayed 5 nights and had no problems.

    We had a short but pleasant stay in Fairy Knowe. The location is quiet and pretty and activities are available onsite, as is a bar and meals. The kitchen and bathrooms need a complete makeover in the old farmhouse. Bring mosquito repellant.
