Just spent 2 nights at the Ferndene. We had a room in the annex. The bathroom was a bit basic, but I understand that will be renovated shortly. I personally found the bed a bit too soft, and we have a king size bed at home, so I nearly fell out of the bed a couple of times! The bed linen was lovely quality, as were the bath towels. The curtains were lovely and thick as well. The parking could be a pain, but we parked outside next to the church so it wasn't an issue for us. Christine and Richard were a lovely couple, we told Christine we were going on the boat trip around the lake, and she recommended a couple of places to stop off at which were very nice. The breakfast was huge and good quality, I really liked the way the cereals were laid out and the bowl of chopped fresh fruit changed in variety the 2 days we were there. There was loads of recommendations for pub food, we tried the George at the bottom, I had the half a 'cow pie', never seen so much meat! As we left, they also suggested a route for us on the way home through Buttermere, which was very scenic. All in all, a good time!
