“Great welcome, great value”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The welcoming cup of tea and homemade cake on arrival at the Ferndell was really lovely after hours of travel, very clean and cosy, a real family atmosphere. On street parking available and an easy walk into Shrewsbury town centre - what a lovely and interesting town. Comfortable bed, good shower and a great breakfast all at a good rate, what more could you want?

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Ferndell. This was the closest we have ever experienced to what a B & B should really be. From the large kitchen table where we sat and conversed with Sarah each morning as she prepared our breakfasts to the upstairs room where we could view the neighborhood and the rooftops of the town of Shrewsbury, we were made to feel at home. Sarah and her family were always gracious and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We are from the USA and this was our first visit to Shrewsbury, but our 6th to the UK and Ireland. We wanted to stay where it was more than just a place for tourists and it was. The town is busy - lots of places to eat and shops to visit. Don't miss the Abbey and the castle grounds. We were also treated to a walk around tour with a lovely lady at Shrewsbury United Reform Church.

My mother and I stayed in Ferndell in July 2013 for 4 nights and we couldn't fault it. Sarah and her family make you feel like an honoured guest - nothing is too much trouble. It was very hot at the time and there were plentiful offers of iced drinks etc.
We stayed in the large twin room which has separate toilet and separate bathroom with bath and shower. It was excellent.
The area is quiet but only a short 5 - 10 min walk to centre of Shrewsbury. You can also walk across the small park and over bridge and down on to the riverside walk. Follow this around and in about 25 mins you will be in Shrewsbury's lovely Quarry Gardens.
Would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at Ferndell B and B for 5 nights and could not have been made more welcome. We felt like part of the family. The room was large, contained at settee, and we had plenty of room to spread about. Breakfast was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble. The B and B is in a very good position - just 10 minutes walk from the station going one way, and 10 minutes to the bottom end of the town going the other.

It was a return journey to a town where we used to live. Our stay at Ferndell was a delight. It was a true family home with all the buzz that goes with having children around. Ferndell is a comfortable house and the Potters excellent hosts. There is easy access to town across Castle Walk. Only street parking but plenty of spaces.

This was our second visit after much too long, and we were very happy to find that it was just as good as we remembered it - including the freshly made cake on arrival. Sarah and her family were very welcoming and as before we were made to feel part of the family.
We would highly recommend Ferndell. It's in a very quiet location yet only a short walk across either the road or footbridge into the town centre. There is free on-street parking right outside.

My hubby and I stayed here in June. A lovely friendly family offering very comfortable and luxurious accommodation. Our room was lovely & it's very unusual for me not to ask for extra pillows but I didn't need to! We would definitely stay again :)
