We've just got home today after a 5 night stay at Fernhill and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The hotel is small and family run which helps to create a really welcoming, relaxed and friendly environment. We stayed in room 5 which has a lovely view of the pool and a super comfy huuuuge bed (great for my 7 month pregnant belly to fit!!). The quality of the extras in the hotel make it a bit more special, a fruit bowl in your room that gets topped up, home made biscuits to go on your in room tea tray, white company toiletries...
We enjoyed a couple of meals from the bar menu, both of which were superb. Breakfast in the hotel was also great with hot breakfasts cooked to order and a lovely selection of healthy cereals, fruit yogurts etc to help yourself to.
We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather everyday and so were able to enjoy to outdoor pool which is heated - a really nice surprise in a hotel in England!! The pool area is a real sun trap!
Whilst on our stay we had a successful fossil hunt at Charmouth beach which was great - a much nicer beach in my opinion than Lyme Regis or Seatown, but Seatown is worth a visit just for lunch at the Anchor! The River Cottage canteen is close by and definitely worth a visit (but book ahead)... Amazing food and really reasonable prices.
We would definitely stay at Fernhill again - thanks Jo & Rob for a lovely break!
