My partner booked Fern Cottage as a surprise for our 2 year anniversary and from the moment we arrived Sue and Pete greeted us as though we were long lost friends. The location was perfect, just 15 minutes each way to either Bath or Bristol and the accommodation itself is set in a beautiful, quiet setting, complete with horses, chickens... More

My wife and I had a short stay (2 days) at Fern Cottage Bed & Breakfast this July - and WHAT a stay! The room was was very nicely equipped (and shiny clean!), had a really nice bath room and a great huge bed. The surroundings were nice and quiet and excellent for relaxing. Note: If WiFi is important to... More

My husband and I have recently returned from another wonderful three night break at Fern Cottage. Once again we selected Rosemary Room as we especially like its lovely sun porch/conservatory, it is so nice to sit in there with a glass of wine admiring the garden if it is too chilly to actually sit outside. The room and en suite... More

Anyone looking for a wonderful B&B convenient to Bath should seriously consider this wonderful place. Hosted by Sue and Pete it offers warm hospitality and delicious breakfast. We will certainly visit again and strongly recommend it. A fantastic addition to our vacation.

Fern Cottage by far has been my favorite place to stay in the UK! We stayed for three nights and wished it could have been three months! The rooms are clean, comfortable and you feel right at home. Rooms are private, quiet and includes an ensuite and sitting area. Breakfast is amazing, you get to choose from a menu of... More

After many years of staying in hotels across the UK I have found Fern Cottage. It is outstanding. It offers genuine hospitality from owners that care about the quality of accommodation they offer. It is situated close to the major road links but is an oasis of calm. The welcome after a long drive is exceptional, the room spotlessly clean... More

We have slept, in the beginning of June 2015, for 2 nights in this accommodation. If you searching for peace in combination with a nice view of one valley against the backdrop of an Abbey and want to see in the distance Bristol this accommodation is an absolute must! The reception is very kindly, you feel right at home but... More

Superb, just superb!! There is nothing more to add to the recent reviews - delightful, warm hosts who just go the extra mile all the time - the most fantastic food, really comfortable accommodation with a lovely garden and a great base for Bristol, Bath and surrounding National Trust locations. We shall be back!! Julia and Mike

Sue and Pete had thought of everything and they both were extremely helpful. We were two Norwegian couples who stayed for two nights. Breakfast was the best we have ever had in G.B. Garden was lovely and so were the surroundings. The only minus with this place is the distance to pubs and restaurants. We took a taxi one night,... More

Sue and Pete did their best (actually, I think it comes naturally to both of them) to be the ultimate host and hostess, both in our accommodation (charming) and breakfasts (yummy and elegant). Also, very interested in what we were planning each day and offering advice and helpful tips as well. We loved our long week-end there and hope to... More
