The Ferndale Coach House Flat is a self-contained, two-storey, timber building, purpose-built for self-catering (holiday rental) holidays and opened for lettings in 2010. It is set in the grounds of Ferndale, which has seven acres of garden, woodland, wild flower bank and sheep grazing.
The owners, Mike and Wendy Brogden, live in the main house nearby and are happy to advise on things to see and do and to give any help that may be required. Comments in the visitors' book show that guests have a very enjoyable and comfortable stay in the Ferndale Flat and that they find the location peaceful and an ideal base for visiting local sights or for both long and short walks.
"The hens deserve a mention"
Sorry to have to say that Mr or Mrs Fox stole both of these lovely hens. Our hens now have a large, fenced area to explore where they are safe. And the deer can no longer eat the apple trees!
