Fearrington offers many ways to stay active and healthy. Walking paths and trails extend throughout the community, and since we enjoy four distinct seasons without extreme temperatures, they can be used virtually year-round. Walk to the Duke Center for Living, a state-of-the-art, comprehensive wellness facility managed by Duke Health, which offers amenities from the latest exercise equipment to an indoor lap pool to massage and physical therapists. During the summer months, walk to Fearrington’s Swim & Croquet Club, which offers residents and their families a club that includes an Olympic sized pool. Resident clubs focused on activities ranging from golfing to biking offer easy, social and fun ways to pursue exercise outside the community.
And in 2010, The Spa at Fearrington opened, offering relaxing and pampering treatments for residents of Fearrington Village, inn guests and visitors.
Our area offers a number of medical resources. In addition to the Duke Clinic at Galloway Ridge, three miles north of Fearrington is Chatham Crossing Medical Center, part of UNC Health Care. These clinics offer access to the state-of-the-art facilities and specialists at both UNC Heath Care eight miles away and Duke Medicine twenty miles away.
Every week from April to November, there’s the growers only Fearrington Farmers Market, now in its 20th year. The seasonal fruits and vegetables that are offered are often picked that very morning from neighboring farms. Freshly prepared, healthy cuisine is also available at our restaurants, under the direction of Chef Colin Bedford.
