Its quiet location, modern fixtures and spacious living room were perfect for our family Easter break away.

Fern Cottage is a superb cottage. It was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. In a wonderful rural location but still close to all the places in the area that we had earmarked to visit during our stay. The hosts were lovely, friendly and helpful. This is certainly a property we would use again if in the area and one we would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Very many thanks.

The best cottage and facilities that we have had the pleasure to be able to use. There was beautiful scenery in all directions. The owners were on site for any advice you may require.
