10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic location to use as a base for the rest of the island. Breakfast was outstanding. The kids loved Winston more than anything.

Another great stay!
This was our second time staying at Fernside and yet again we had a fantastic time! We were in the smaller family room this time but it was still plenty of space for me and my two children. The only downside is the WiFi is too weak to connect iPads / kindle for when they just want to chill but other than that it was spotless and comfy! The breakfast as always was excellent and my kids love the different choices they can have each day (so do I!!). The highlight for my two as always was Winston & Mabel. Such lovely dogs and Stuart & Angela are just fantastic! Looking forward to coming back in Aug 2022!
