Fern has recently undergone a total transformation and now offers guests luxury living at it's very best. The open plan living area is a tranquil sanctuary with kitchen, dining and sitting area. A paradise of calm, it offers a cosy Loaf sofa, table and chairs for intimate candlelight suppers and a fabulous, equipped kitchen. This wonderful space has floor to ceiling windows facing out over a big glass-sided deck where sun loungers look across lawns to woodland and fields.

In keeping with the eco feel and the woodland walks, the bedroom has a beautiful bamboo bed, super-king size for added luxury. The en suite bathroom has under-floor heating, a walk-in drench-head shower and an oval free-standing double-ended bath.
