Lovely house with plenty of space for everyone and more than enough home comforts., Visited for 1 night with husband and three young children - so much easier than staying in a pokey hotel room. We were attending a party at Walworth Castle so location was perfect. Thanks John - your attention to detail in providing the basics like milk and cooking oil were very much appreciated!

For a family/friends gathering in the North East, look no further.
We booked The Old Fernhouse for a family get together as it looked to be exactly what we wanted and we were not disappointed. It is welcoming, warm, pet friendly, very spacious and secure, with a high wall surrounding the property so your pets/kids can safely run around. There was ample parking space too. The access to the property is fantastic and appears to be wheelchair friendly with wide doors and an ensuite wetroom in one of the two double bedrooms. Furniture is top quality throughout and you will not be left wanting for anything in the kitchen, with plenty of crockery, cutlery, and gadgets to make you feel at home. The heating is electric, simple to use and very effective with individually controllable radiators throughout. All in all, we could not have asked for anything more as the owner seems to have thought of everything already. We will be back.

Perfect base for
The Old Fernhouse has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The bedrooms were clean and very comfortable. The place was truly set up for 8 people. So many times there aren't enough chairs, glasses or plates for everyone - this was not that case at the Old Fernhouse. There was a large table with 8 chairs (plenty of cutlery and crockery). It was nice to have a large entry way (to keep our muddy boots out of the way). It was great to have a large walled garden too. We are looking forward to visiting again.
