We stayed here for a 2 night mini break. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of all facilities in this charming village. Keith had called me the previous day and explained that he was disabled and that sometimes it took him a while to get to the door, which we did not consider a problem. I called him when we got into the village and he was waiting for us when we arrived, accompanied by the very friendly Jess!
The cottage is fairly small, but appeared clean and we certainly got no hint of unpleasant smells, we are also dog owners so may not have noticed any doggy smells.
We had a twin room at the front of the house which was not en-suite so we were sharing a bathroom with one other room.
Some of the facilities were quite basic, the beds were not very comfortable and creaked with slight movements. The biggest issue for me was that there was a skylight that had no blind or way of blacking out which meant that by 5am the room was very light and sleep more difficult. Yes the room is at the front of the house and there is road noise from around 6:30am onwards.
We chose not to have the breakfast, but from what we observed, it looked and certainly smelled good.
We did not experience any problem or rudeness with Keith, his Mother or anyone else at the cottage and cannot understand some of the other comments on here. Jessica is a typical bouncy 6 year old Golden Labrador who is confined to the downstairs. WIFI and Freeview in the rooms worked well.
The only reason that we may not go back is only because we found it difficult to sleep, but for younger travelers and especially ones looking for budget accommodation then Fern Cottage is an option
