Fern Gully more than meets the previous excellent reviews. The property is huge and so clean. It is the perfect base to explore Devon and Cornwall. The garden is fully enclosed so we were happy for our dogs to wander around. To top it off the hot tub was always waiting for us following whatever adventure we had been on that day. Looking forward to returning.

Lovely views from the cottage and good space, the dinning room was a bit of a redundant space as we used the kitchen so could have been put to better use as a games room or similar

August 2020

We had a lovely holiday in a fantastic setting. The Kitchen had all the equipment you could need for a self catering break The property had a lovely view of the countryside and despite lightening flashes we were able to lie down outside and watch the meteor shower. It was also great to be able to go for a short drive and then be able to go for a walk on Dartmoor.

We were very pleased that Fern Gully provided a very detailed list of equipment and provisions supplied. The detail about eg toilet rolls, towels, bbq coals made packing to go on holiday so much easier.

It was very nice that when we had a power cut the owners came around to check that everything was alright. Also due to covid, the owners were very careful when they came around to check on the hot tub.

The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived which made us feel very safe. The owners, who live close by, are extremely helpful but from a safe distance and leave you to enjoy your holiday. The cottage is in a beautiful location and is perfectly laid out for 2 families, the hot tub is a real bonus! Thank you for a lovely stay, we will definitely be returning.

Highly recommend this lovely spacious cottage, ideal for two families. Very peaceful, super views, great secure garden for the dogs, it was well equipped and we made good use of the fabulous hot tub! The owners were very friendly and accommodating, thank you for the wonderful homemade scones on our arrival, and the doggy treats! We wouldn’t hesitate to return to this homely cottage.

Fern Gully was absolutely immaculate and more than exceeded our expectations. Very well located for Bude, Polzeath, Padstow and Crackington Haven. The cottage was beautiful with so much equipment and had everything you could possibly need and much more. The hot tub was well used by the children at the end of the day. It was extremely spacious and well laid out. There was a huge selection of games, books and dvds. I would recommend this cottage as very good value with lovely hosts.

Property is well looked after and really clean with lovely finishing touches. It felt like the house was cared for rather than just maintained.

We recently stayed at fern gully, its a beautiful house and the hot tub is an added bonus for a relaxing evening.

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Fern Gully. The cottage was immaculate and in a beautiful spot. Very friendly welcome from the family who run it. Hot tub is in a private sun trap and was maintained well. Grounds are all closed in perfect for dogs.

Everything about the cottage lived up to our expectations. The owners were incredibly helpful, and we knew they would be on hand if we had any problems, which we didn’t! Lovely welcome tray of treats on the table when we arrived, which were much appreciated

We spent a very nice holiday in pure nature. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable. The property is completely fenced and therefore perfect for a holiday with a dog! A big thank you again to Caroline and Bill for the lovely welcome and the delicious scones with all that's included-just delicious! You are very friendly and helpful hosts. We wish you all the best and many great steeds!

I booked Fern Gully Cottage and Twitcher's Itch (4173 together for a family holiday of 12 people of ages rangeing from 3 to 64, there was something for everybody, country walks, wildlife and with easy to reach beautiful beaches and activities. On arrival we were welcomed with a cream tea and cakes for the children, The best scones I have ever tasted. We all had a great time. Bill and Caroline were fantastic hosts and very approachable, would of loved to of stayed longer.

August 2018

A well appointed cottage maintained to a high standard with a lovely modern interior a credit to their owners Bill and Caroline. The home made welcome Cream Tea, fresh flowers and treats for the dogs were a lovely touch. The location was rural but perfect for a relaxing holiday and the hot tub was a great additional. The garden was fully enclosed and the dogs enjoyed the open space. We would recommend this property and definitely plan on returning.

Lovely cottage, large, spacious and comfortable. Warm welcome from the hosts. Cream tea on arrival was a nice touch.

July 2018

We had a fantastic break in this delightful Devon idyll. With delicious home baked goodies on arrival, it was the perfect antidote to our hectic work lives. It was also a great base for exploring Devon and north Cornwall, where we all enjoyed surf lessons and visiting the beautiful villages, before heading back to the spacious cottage for a relaxing evening watching the sun set from the hot tub. I highly recommend booking Fern Gully and will be back!
