We spent 10 wonderful holidays in Apartment 2 - The Fartings.
The apartment was very clean and much bigger than expected. We had two lovingly decorated bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtube), a large living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Just great! Everything you need for a relaxing holiday was available in the apartment. Between the larger bathroom and the master bedroom was even a walk-in cupboard, where we could stow all the clothings and was so big that even the suitcases could be turned off in it. That was an excellent idea. The master bedroom even had double glazing so no outside noise entered the apartment. Our car was safely in the locked courtyard behind the house. The Farthings are really very close to the fine sandy beach with the wonderful pier and also close to the city center. Still, it was a quiet place for a relaxing vacation. All in all, we can only recommend it and would always spend our holidays again in the Fartings. Many thanks to Stephen and Lya. We had a very nice time!
Our long weekend at 2, The Farthings was super in every way. The apartment itself is like the Tardis, it's huge inside and proved nice and cool in the very hot weather we've had this year. It has everything a self catering holiday maker requires--well equipped kitchen, including a large fridge freezer, and lots of workspace. The main bedroom has a spacious ensuite and walk-in cupboard (I want one too!) where suitcases can be stored well out of the way. The apartment is truly spotlessly clean as other reviewers have already mentioned. As for the street noise, we found that since the apartment isn't actually on the main road itself--it's on a slip road to the side, the traffic is not overly noticeable. At bedtime we blocked any outside noise by closing the bedroom window fully and used our little desk fan to rotate the air. The apartment was already cool though, because we'd opened all windows (including the bathroom skylight) during the evening for a nice through breeze. I should also mention that you can't hear neighbours either, not even a cupboard door closing, and we were there with two other families with small children. We were very pleased to find that we were in close walking distance from town (and there's a bus stop nearby) so we didn't even need to use our car. We'll definitely be making plans to stay at the Farthings again, it was fab--thanks Stephen and Lya!
Lovely and spacious apartment,the beds are really comfortable.The location is excellent;so close to the beach and town centre!Kids loved it!
Just travelling home from a 1 week stay in this lovely apartment. On arrival we found it clean and well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. It’s about a 5-10 minute walk to the pier/beach and same to town centre. The beds were especially comfortable. It was good to have a dedicated parking space in a secure car park but beware the spaces are very tight. Main thing that stopped me giving 5 stars was that it’s close to a busy roundabout so if you sleep with the windows open it can be noisy. Also we were awakened between 4-5am every morning with delivery drivers parking outside on the double yellow lines, I presume delivering to the hotel next door. Not the owners fault but still made for very early waking on what is supposed to be a relaxing holiday.
This is a spacious, well designed holiday home, ideally located just a short walk from the town centre and sea front. Situated in a quiet spot yet only some fifty meters from bus stops serving the rail station and town etc. Attention has been given to ample storage space and small detail like hooks on bathroom doors, so necessary for hanging clothes, yet so often missing. My wife and I have self-catered for many years and this is one of the best holiday homes we have had. Very happy to recommend.
