Fair Hill House is adjacent to Fair Hill Natural Resource Management Area, 5600 acres of preserved farmlands for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Big Elk Creek, running through FHNRMA offers fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, sunfish, bluegill, brown and rainbow trout. In addition to nature appreciation, FHNRMA offers limited, by permit only, deer and raccoon hunting. Fair Hill is well known as a venue for FHI Recognized Horse Trials and Three Day Fall Festival, Fair Hill Point to Point, Fair Hill Races, Scottish Games, and the Cecil County Fair.

We are a five minute drive to downtown Newark, DE and the main campus of the University of DE. Restaurants, pubs, bars, fast food and interesting shops abound in the semi-quiet town of Newark, with UD students always offering a colorful and lively backdrop. Tax-free shopping at the Christiana Mall, Target, Costco, Barnes and Noble, and Cabela's is a 10 mile drive.

Fair Hill House is also within an easy drive of Plumpton Park Zoo, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, the Brandywine Valley, and an equidistant hour's drive from Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.

Gettysburg is 100 miles to the west, Delaware beaches 100 miles southeast.
