Very nice welcome, well situated for most things. And to have a champion porridge maker cook breakfast is a worthwhile experience. The customer service was excellent, the price was very good, and I won't hesitate to use it again

We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are small with added on bathroom areas. The price is very reasonable, so don't expect an upscale B&B. However, David, the host and cook, was wonderful and shared so much local knowledge with us. He gave us ideas for hiking and he cooks a very good breakfast. My husband even tried the... More

Very relaxed atmosphere, room & ensuite bathroom nice and clean. The best porridge in the morning and a very enthousiast story telling house lord. We were lucky enough to stay two nights. We would definitely advise this B&B to our family & friends.

We spent 2 nights at Fern Villa and were looked after like members of the family by David and Catherine. After a delicious breakfast - the porridge is a must, David gave lots of advice about things to do and see in the area. It was a real pleasure to stay there.

First impressions count ! Open the door to be met by dog sniffing round ankles ugh!. General decoration and furniture dated. Room small, bed uncomfortable and lumpy pillows. Poor shower. Breakfast reasonable - porridge very good - but needed to fill in choices in advance.
