We absolutely loved Ferns Cottage! As a family of five, with a 3, 5 and 7 year old, it was just perfect. We could cook in the lovely kitchen, watching the kids playing in the living room with one eye, and taking in the amazing Black Mountains views with the other eye! The cottage was very clean and well designed, with lots of lovely design/antique Read morefeatures. Comfortable beds, comfy sofas, stylish log fire, big TV. And the walks in the fields are great. And sheep at the end of the garden! Perfect! Hide

A beautiful, well equipped property in a fantastic location. The views are incredible and it was lovely having walks from the doorstep. Great place to relax and get away from it all - very good village store in walking distance as well as a pub.
