    Lovely cottage and very friendly owners. Sadly we found the beds pretty uncomfortable. We had bad backache all week. There is no mobile signal and the Internet was hopeless. Bit of a problem as we were house hunting! Otherwise a great cottage and so peaceful.

    This is a fantastic place to stay, the cottage is spotlessly clean and comfortable with every amenity provided. The owner's Pat and Rodney are very friendly and helpful and cannot do enough for you, even our two dogs were catered for with doggy treats. The cottage is in a lovely quiet village but centrally placed to visit many Cotswold attractions. An added bonus is watching the visiting wildlife every evening. We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week and would highly recommend 'The Fernery'

    Simply delightful both the house and our hosts. A hidden bit of heaven in a tiny village near a very good small town at Nailsworth. The badger feeding was an unexpected treat.....BBC Countryfile right in front of our eyes.... 7 badgers all at one time! Thanks again Pat and Rodney

    Pat & Rodney are a very welcoming couple who live in the adjoining house. The cottage is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything that one could possibly need. The visiting wildlife at dusk of squirrels, badgers and fox are a very memorable sight.

    Very pleasant cottage in an ideal location to amenities. Very well equipped and comfortable inside. Owners Rodney and Pam welcoming and helpful. 9pm is one of the best times as badgers and foxes fed on the lawn.
