We stayed at The Ferns for a 4 day break and we were most pleased. We arrived tired and stressed after a long journey and were offered a pot of tea in the lounge by David, which was most welcome. We were in room 3, which was adequate in size, although the on-suite shower was rather cramped. The shower itself was fine with plenty of hot water, but the step up into the cubicle itself was higher than we have usually found, which could be a problem for the less able; also the cubicle door didn't open fully due to the position of the sink.We were at the front of the house, and although we live in a quiet rural road, we didn't find any problem with road noise at night. The bed was very comfortable - neither too hard nor too soft, so we slept well.
The cooked breakfast was very good, but we had to choose our option when we arrived. I changed a couple of items for the next morning after breakfast twice with absolutely no problems. Lynn whized around serving breakfast with great efficiency and a huge smile! There was a choice of cereals, porridge, prunes, grapefruit, apricots, yogourt, but no choice of juice - just a very good orange. They have a time-slot of 8.00 - 8.30 for breakfast, with no variation, but that suited us just fine.
Parking was available on the sloping drive, and if there were more than two cars they request that you move off the drive each morning onto the free road parking to avoid blocking anyone in.
It was only a few minutes walk from the varied food options of pubs, hotels and restaurants.
