High Quality B&B - Rating 5/5

A high quality B&B in every respect. The room we stayed in, Golborn, was clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped with every little detail taken in to consideration. Sally and Steve made us feel extremely welcome and went out of their way to ensure our stay was first class. Breakfast (cooked by Sally) was delicious and plentiful. This B&B is perfectly located in the Cheshire countryside and is ideal for exploring in and around the area. We would recommend this B&B and will stay when we next visit this location. Many thanks for an enjoyable 2 nights and keep up the excellent work!


Thank you very much for your kind words and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again.

A really very good place to stay ... - Rating 5/5

Thank you so much.. This was probably the nicest stay I ever experienced at any Hotel or B&B! These are the reasons.. Fernlea was very easy to find and in a very convenient spot.I Was met by Sally then Steve who were very welcoming and helpful. I am not exaggerating when I say this property was Super clean, amazing! I would say the extra mile had been covered here. I tried pick holes thinking surely I wouldn't sleep or maybe the bed wouldn't suit me as I'am a terrible sleeper! But it was lovely.. Slept really well and the bed was really comfortable. Plenty of places to eat close-by within 2-3 miles! I really really enjoyed the breakfast couldn't fault it home made honey good quality ingredients make all the difference.. Oh and superbly cooked which helps! I will hope to stay again one day. I do recommend this B&B 100%


Thanks for such a glowing review - we just hope that we can keep up the standard!Look forward to seeing you again.

Lovely peaceful place which had ensuite bedroom overlooking the fields. Hosts are lovely and very accommodating as had early starts and they provided breakfast half an hour earlier than normal for me. Hot english breakfast included and very filling even if no marmite. Only downside was trying to turn into drive which was nearly a 360degree turn off road,which when there are narrow brick gate posts either side and you are driving a 4x4 makes you breath in, but it didnt spoil stay and would definately stay again and recommend it to others.

The ensuite facilities were very well done with a good sized shower which is very gentle. The welcome we received was warm and friendly and Sally happily restricted the dog to their part of the house. The lounge was a bonus given the inclement weather and enabled us to work in comfort, we hope BT can resolve your internet connection quickly. Fernlea Cottage is also very convenient for visiting Chester.

Single overnight stay - Rating 5/5

Excellent facilities, clean, warm and comfortable. Distinctive because of the attention to detail and the care taken to cater for individual requirements with regard to food.Took the trouble to make contact before my arrival to ask about any special requirements.Excellent service - look forward to staying again.


I\'m pleased that we were able to live up to your pre-visit expectations and hope that we can provide the same standard should you visit again.

Very pleasant stay - Rating 5/5

A very pleasant Bed and Breakfast. The room was spotlessly clean and well appointed with good en suite facilities. The breakfast was hearty and very nicely cooked, just like mother made. The landlady was friendlyand when asked about local eating places directed me to the local villagewhere the was some very good eating to be had. All in all a very pleasant two night stay and I will return when in the area again.


Thank you for your comments which are much appreciated and glad you enjoyed the local eateries which continue to get good reviews.

A most enjoyable & pleasant place to stay! - Rating 5/5

Even though I was late in arriving due to horrendous traffic(iturned 8pm)I was greeted at the door, warmly &pleasantly by Sally &shown to my tastefully decorated, clean &airy &most pleasant room.Sally even gave me recommendations &directions to a local pub in the village which served excellent meals &real ale (The Sportsmans).Breakfast was excellent with free range eggs from their own chickens.All in all, a very pleasant and enjoyable experience which I highly recommend.I wil certainly stay there again when in that part of the country.


Thank you for the kind comments and glad you enjoyed both your stay and visit to The Sportsmans.It is always difficult to know if a recommended eating place is going to be to everyone\'s taste but they usually get very good reviews from customers.Hope to see you again if going to Oulton Park in the future.

a warm welcome, spotlessly clean, lots of helpful information and one of the best breakfasts for a long time. only downside was the elbow-bangingly-small shower.for those sensitive to noise, the main road may be somewhat too close.

Thanks! - Rating 5/5

Sally and Steve are wonderful hosts. The magic of a B&B stay is in the detail as well as friendliness and Fernlea is a wee treasure - comfortable beds, pillows that are nice to sleep on and nice little touches like pretty china coffee mugs. Thanks - I hope I will be back.Shandy Arlidge

BSB Oulton Park - Rating 5/5

Booked this bed and breakfast only a week ahead of the British super bikes triple header weekend at oulton park circuit, we were very lucky in finding somewhere to stay (besides a motorway holiday inn). Had a lovely stay, excellent breakfast and a very good nights sleep. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and hopefully will in the future as it was close to Chester, chesire oaks and the circuit, couldn't have found a better location for a weekend away if we had tried.


So glad you enjoyed your stay and the retail therapy on the Sunday was worthwhile.

An over-used phrase but perfect in this instance.Very comfortable room with everything you could possibly ask for and a bit more besides!Very friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast.Couldn't fault it and would definitely go back if we were in that area.

A day at the open golf - Rating 5/5

Fantastic B&B's nothing too much trouble for the hosts and everything seemed to have been thought about Down to home baked cake along with the tea and coffee in the room, lovely gardens the only downside was that as it was very hot we needed to sleep with the windows open and the traffic noise was very noticeable. Well served by local places to eat.


So glad you enjoyed your stay and we agree that the traffic noise did seem rather noticeable.It seemed to "travel" through the still air more than usual and was especially more evident with all windows being open.Hope it didn't detract too much from the visit.

Simply Outstanding - Rating 5/5

The owners are so lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Sally even gave us a lift to the wedding we were attending when we were unable to get a taxi. The breakfast is wonderful with everthing you could ask for and more. The room was by far the most comfortable I have ever stayed in with the little touches like bathrobes that really make Fernlea stand out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B and hope to return one day.
