“Well equipped & comfortable house”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at ferndale for 1 week in august 2013. Our group included 4 adults & young children aged 4,5 & 6. The house is well equipped - lovely newly fitted kitchen & the beds are super comfortable! There was plenty of room for us all & the garden provided a great place for the children to explore.
Nice 'extras' included tea, coffee, fresh milk & a bottle of wine. On top of this there were some toys for the little ones to play with & plenty of books to read whilst enjoying the amazing views from the back of the house.
We had a fabulous time & recommend the nearby white lion for a reasonably priced meal (kids eat free) & a bouncy castle. The house is also close to blackgang chine which is a must visit for the little ones!

“Beautiful house, stunning views - a wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I have been to the Isle of Wight on holiday at least once a year for 25 years, and Ferndale was easily one of the nicest places I have stayed. The kitchen was certainly the nicest - far better than my kitchen at home! The three friends who stayed with me at Ferndale could not stop talking about it, and are all planning to come back. What with the lovely house, gorgeous garden and amazing sunny weather, they could not have had a better first impression of the Island!
