Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

The owner was a great host. She took care us in a friendly and relaxed way, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back.

The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Crisp linen and tick towels. Lovely view of well kept garden but not overlooked.

We had an excellent stay in this small BnB. The host was very helpful when we asked her about the walks in the area, the room was very clean and they have high quality bed linen and towels. The breakfast was excellent (the best we came across in North Devon)
The only downside is that you can hear noise from the other rooms.
I would definitely recommend staying here.

I can only add to the previous comments. Fabulous place. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and relaxing. The weather was not good and we were so happy to return each day to the comfort of The Fernery. Everything is of top quality. The breakfast is superb and carries you through the whole day. I enjoyed too,Jo's sense of humour and friendliness. Lovely lady who puts 100% into making sure you are looked after. I look forward to my next visit to Lynton and The Fernery. Cannot recommend it enough. Go and see for yourself. You will be delighted.

We stayed four nights at The Fernery and were very pleased with our choice. The room was very well done out, quiet and very clean. The room also had a comfortable bed and an excellent bathroom. We were welcomed with tea and freshly made cakes on our arrival. Jo, the owner, cooked a wonderful breakfast and was happy to accommodate our preference for porridge made with soya milk. The advice on restaurants for the evening was accurate and helpful. We would be happy to recommend the Fernery to friends and hope to be able to return ourselves.

Beautiful BnB hidden in a wonderful little village. Jo was welcoming and attentive throughout our short stay. The rooms are immaculate and lovely. Tucked away in a quiet street but only a minutes walk away from the restaurants and a few minutes walk away from various activities. Will definitely be returning for a longer stay in this gorgeous place and this gem off a BnB. Couldn't recommend this place more.

My girlfriend and I spent the bank holiday weekend at the The Fernery and absolutely loved the place. Jo (the owner) was a delight and the breakfast in the morning was just what we both needed. Nothing but great things to say about the place. I have already recommended the Fernery to my family and colleagues.

Thank you for a great weekend.
