    A great place for a relaxing holiday with a large group of people. There were seven of us on a photographic holiday in beautiful Dorset. The property is not within walking disance of a shop or a pub but it is with sea views from the 2nd floor bedrooms. It also has ample parking, good wifi and is well provided with about everything that you need. the owner is friendly and helpful.



    out of 10

    Excellent property for a large group and exceptional for all 7 bedrooms to be en-suite. House well equipped, comfortable and in a great location for exploring the Jurassic Coast. Couple of “even better ifs” would be more reliable and effective WiFI ( barely worked for us) and why not just. include heating and electricity costs within the rental rather than additional fees on arrival and departure that creates a bit of a negative feeling.

    Great house for a large family gathering. It is nice to have all bedrooms ensuite

    Fernlea is a superb house for both a group of friends or a family. All the bedrooms are on- suite. The house is well equipped and the location is great. The coast is around a mile away and there are plenty of lovely walks close by. I would definitely go back



    out of 10

    Location was excellent, house was good, beds good, garden lovely, parking was adequate. Problem was there was no comfortable seats in the house, the showers were situated in the bath which made it problematic for my wife, the downstairs dining area was unusable due to dank, damp smell and feel. My wife only stayed 2 days due to being uncomfortable. The house requires the lounge suite upgrading with at least the facility of one walk in shower.

    Delighted with our stay at Fernlea, all 3 generations. Spacious and well appointed , a special bonus all bedrooms having ensuite (and internal phones), Large garden space and parking, friendly sheep in field next to us, views to Swanage. Excellent base for exploring the area. Very grateful to Roz who was available for advice, and warnings about the sensitive fire alarm! Fernlea is not in a village, eg with a shop/pub for food, but plenty within a short drive. Its a slight pity that the very large diningroom is in the basement with a bit of a musty feel, and one would have to carry everything down a flight of steps, but this definately wouldn't put us off revisiting Fernlea which we hope to do. We did find a doggy odour on the sofas, but not a great issue. Perhaps a benefit would be a reference folder re appliances and local info, but overall great!
