“A fantastic spring getaway”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

As regulars to the Island we had need for larger accomodation and we were not disappointed by our stay in such a lovely setting and the most well equipped and clean holiday let! Ferndale was a fantastic base for a great week seeing the island (and of course everywhere is close!) easy to find and the booking was dealt with super-easy and the information provided both pre-holiday and in the property for potential new holiday-makers was superb. Second to none for a home from home holiday! We will be back!

“Great weekend in a superb family property”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our family had a wonderful long weekend in Ferndale in the February half term. The house has a lovely open fire, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen, super large dining table and all in a great location. Our kids LOVED the walk that we did straight from the house (helped by the mud, tree climbing and paths covered in water!). We also took a very blustery but beautiful walk along the coast and the kids enjoyed a trip to the dinosaur museum which was perfect for a rainy day. We would love to return in the summer to make proper use of the garden and the beaches. We would highly recommend a pub called The Buddle Inn, which was welcoming to our large family party and served delicious food. Thank you to the owner Patricia for all her local knowledge and recommendations, we can't wait to come again.

“Lovely Place, Wonderful for Families”
Reviewed May 10, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely weekend at Ferndale, travelling as two families. The house with its four bedrooms and large garden is perfect for a large family or two families travelling toegther. The house had everything we needed, plenty of towels, crockery, a wifi connection and the owner even left a welcome bottle of wine and a pint of milk (thank you, Patricia!). It's in a great location with walks leading straight from the cottage into the countryside and the beach is a short drive away.

“We had the most comfortable stay with delightful gardens and a lovely view.”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our large family group was very comfortably accommodated in Ferndale . We really liked the traditional furnishings and comfortable bedrooms. Our elderly parents were particularly delighted with the main bedroom with beautiful views over the valley The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cater for a large group with differing needs - including a 90th birthday meal! The most delightful aspect of the visit was the large garden and surrounding views, As a base to visit island attractions it was perfect and a we would love to visit again.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I am very pleased to hear that you all had a good time and especially that your parents enjoyed the main bedroom. It was my grandmother's room and she too loved the view! I look forward to welcoming you back to Ferndale in the future.
