About Fairfield House

Nestled in seven acres of beautiful woodlands and gardens, Fairfield House is one of Nelson's most prestigious historic homes. Its spacious verandas and unique observation tower have gracefully overlooked the city since 1872. Now, lovingly restored to its former glory, Fairfield House stands as a unique tribute to community activism. Fairfield was blessed as a place of peace by His Holiness The Dalai Lama when he visited here in 1996.
