Beautiful 4 day island life getaway
Fernbank was a welcoming and superb location. Walking distance from the town and some amazing pubs in Shanklin. Great breakfast to start our day before road-tripping around the island and a lovely quiet bar for a nightcap. And for those rainy days, the indoor pool serves as a great escape! Even in these corona times, we felt safe and comfortable as we saw how much effort and pleasure the staff took in hosting us during our stay.
