Sue and Pete paid great attention to detail in order to make our stay as comfortable as possible with lots of little thoughtful touches such as a sewing kit, spare toothbrush etc. Our bedroom in the old stable block was beautifully decorated and had a great amount of charm. The en-suite shower room was a good size and the views... More

The rooms in Fern Cottage are beautiful and Sue and Pete could not be more welcoming. I have stayed quite a few times in Oct - Dec last year and every stay was absolutely lovely. I just wish I had more time to enjoy Sue's delicious cooked breakfast in the mornings (as I was in Bristol on business, not holiday)!... More

Based on Passion, Food, Flexibility and Customer Focus this establishment could not be given anything less than its justified ratings on TA. Passion , we have stayed at over 100 guest houses and have never met anyone as passionate about what they do as Sue and Pete, they are genuinely interested in making sure you get the most out of...

I thought my wife had written a comment about Fern Cottage as she did all the research and found it and made the booking - she hadn't and so I thought I should as it was such a wonderful place. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay - excellent room and food to die for - recommended to anyone who wants a great... More

We stayed at Fern Cottage this last weekend on a birthday treat for my wife. We really enjoyed our stay and the owners Pete and Sue excelled themselves. The Rosemary room was fantastic with a lovely comfortable bed, a small conservatory with views over the length of the garden to Siston Hall, and a lovely clean en-suite. The breakfasts were... More

Lovely welcome, clean and well appointed room/en-suite. Superb views from our room, quality bed & bedding. Breakfasts to die for, lots of choices, great attention to detail, you'd be silly to stay anywhere else when travelling in this region. Puts a few 5 Star Hotels to shame. You can tell why they have so many awards. Thanks Sue and Pete.... More

Recently stayed for 2 nights while attending our daughter's wedding. Perfect from start to finish, could not of wished for better accommodation or choice of breakfast, devilled kidneys were awesome. Very friendly owners, excellent value for money.

Stayed at this B&B back in September last year, and it was truly excellent. The room was clean, cosy, with stunning views across the paddock and countryside. The breakfast was outstanding, everything sourced locally and cooked to perfection. The owners couldn't do enough for you, even letting us keep our champagne in their fridge to keep cool. They were so... More

The best use of a pin on a list of B&Bs ever. We arrived at Fern Cottage late afternoon to a warm greeting from Sue. My wife and I were shown to our room(Rosemary) what a delightful room. The attention to detail was amazing. Sue's local knowledge came in handy when choosing a restaurant for our first evening meal. Breakfast... More
