We had a delightful time at this lovely B and B. Sue and Pete were so welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is quaint and very pretty, with a gorgeous garden, while the ensuite was very modern and the Rosemary Room, where we stayed, was absolutely charming.

National Award Winning Fern Cottage Bed and Breakfast is set in 2 acres of delightful gardens within a designated conservation area - 15 minutes from the City of Bath and the vibrant Maritime City of Bristol. We are very proud to have been re-graded by EnjoyEngland and received a 4 STAR GOLD Award in March 2016. The GOLD Award is presented for exceptional quality of accommodation, customer service, food and hospitality. We have also received the Highly Commended Award for Bed and Breakfast of the Year from VisitEngland after attending the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013 in Manchester on 20th May. We are very proud to be in the top 5 bed and breakfast businesses in England. We have now received 20 Awards for customer service, hospitality and our home made, home grown and local food. We have cooked for Gary Rhodes and Michael Caines in the UKTV Local Food Hero and received Finalist for the whole of the South West. We are also the only Bed and Breakfast in this area to have received a GOLD Award for Green Tourism for the 7th year running. Three rooms are in our beautifully converted stable block with panoramic views overlooking fields and the fourth room is situated at the rear of the cottage overlooking the rear garden. All rooms have their own entrances, so guests can come and go as they please. We have put together a unique breakfast menu using only local, home made and home grown produce. Baked eggs, devilled kidneys on hot buttered toast, local naturally smoked haddock with home made potato cakes, fresh herb omelette using our own delicious eggs from our hens and of course our own South West full English breakfast, using locally produced maple cured bacon specially prepared for us, old English sausages, potato cakes with home grown chives, a taster portion of devilled kidneys, grilled local tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms. ... more   less
