We stayed at Fernhead in the Walford and Allen rooms for one night. All i can say is brilliant!!!!!! The rooms were spotless, comfortable and really good sizes.

Then there was the breakfast. Anything we wanted basically, and it was brilliant.

Would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone!!

We give this B&B 10 stars as well......as we were in Wimbourne on such a sad occasion ( Mum passed away) we were rather a sad little family, but Karen made our stay so wonderful . My husband and I stayed there for eleven nights and were made so welcome. We had the chance of staying in all three rooms, all were sumptuous had wonderful beds and the bathrooms were fantastic right down to heated towel rails in that freezing cold weather. The weather at the end of February was really awful for us but the wonderful warm atmosphere and attention from Karen more than made up for it. The meals were fantastic and we sometimes ate a little bit to much....Karen added all the little touches that make a hotel room feel like a home. If you are ever in this area make a point of staying at Fernhead even just for one nights.....it will spoil you for anywhere else. Thank you Karen from your two visitors from South Africa, Tanzania and Ghana, for making our stay such a pleasure.....

Room Tip: All rooms are great but the Walford is the grandest.....super size bed.....double shower...loads of...

I stayed at Fernhead for three weeks while away working and I honestly say I don't think anywhere will ever match it. Karen is absolutely amazing at what she does, and no one could make you feel more welcome than her. The beds are all so comfy, I stayed in the Shakespeare and Allen rooms & the cleanliness is pristine throughout. Breakfast, well, you will not find a better one and the choice was immense. All in all, the best nights sleep I have ever had.

I would like to give this B & B 10 stars !! Nothing was too much trouble , Karen was a wonderful hostess. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean with many nice touches. There was a silent fridge in the room with complimentary mineral water , an extensive selection of teas, coffee, hot chocolate and lovely biscuits. The bathroom was well equipped, with a huge shower as well as a bath and two washbasins, lovely toiletries and soft white towels. The bed was huge and very comfortable with lovely bed linen. Bedside lamps were touch control. Plenty of storage space and loads of hangers. Hairdryer, fan and heater all available as was a hot water bottle! Karen thinks of everything. The breakfast was amazing. Lovely fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries or prunes with a wonderful selection of yoghurts and cereals. Fabulous cooked breakfast piping hot and great coffee. If you need to stay in the Wimborne area I would suggest you look no further for accommodation, this one cannot be improved on. Thank you Karen for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Walford which overlooked the road but didn't cause any problems with sleeping.

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.

Recommended.

We enjoyed three days at the Fernhead Guest House in Wimborne. It's ideally located, just a few minutes walk from the centre.

The breakfasts were fantastic and huge! We didn't feel hungry until late afternoon. Everything was spotlessly clean and there were some lovely little extra touches such as baby wipes for the children, bath toys, night light and blackout blinds, lots of toys, games and books, and little treats for the children included with the hospitality tray.

Beautifully warm room and the bed was very comfortable. Excellent quality towels and sheets too.

The best B&B we've ever stayed in! Hope to visit again!

It was the second time that we stayed at Fernhead Guest House. Definitely one of the cosiest and best kept places I have ever seen! When staying with my family we experienced the warm and friendly atmosphere, the wonderful, abundant breakfast which does not leave any wishes open. Furthermore, we appreciated very much the quietness of the place and the fact that we could reach the center of Wimborne within a five minutes walk along Allen river! Thanks to Karen and her family for all the attention you gave us! Greetings from Austria! Katharina and family!
