We stayed at Fernhead whilst attending a concert at the Tivoli theatre last weekend, and were very pleased with our choice. The Tivoli and centre of town is about a 5 minute walk away.
We booked the very spacious Walford room which was in effect the equivalent of a hotel room rather than a B&B - super king size quality bed, Jasper Conran linen, leather sofa, silent fridge with complimentary water, ample wardrobe space, bookcase with good selection of books and then an enormous bathroom with double shower cubicle, separate bath and two pedestal basins. All fixtures and fittings newish, clean and tidy - all very acceptable.
The breakfast was really topnotch, fresh fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries on Sunday for example), Greek yoghurts as well as ordinary, warm croissants, nice jams and butter, plus good quality hot English breakasts.
The owner/hostess is charming and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and she has certainly thought of everything - down to complimentary Nivea face wipes (and baby wipes) in the bathroom which was a first !
The house is on a main road but there was no audible noise in the house and we slept well even though we live in quiet countryside.
