Fabulous B&B - Fabulous hosts
Our stay at Fern bank was excellent, We could not fault anything, the location was great for cycling and walking, the rooms were lovely, clean and spacious. Our hosts were fabulous. The breakfast absolutely amazing, fresh fruit, homemade bread, jams and muesli, and full English cooked to order. The garden was available for a chill out, along with an honesty bar - great idea!
