Fernhill Meadow is relaxed and welcoming to all visitors, the cabin has a well appointed bedroom and sitting area, with a galley kitchen, fridge, microwave, small oven & hob.
As you may note from listing there is a sofa bed in the lounge this can readily accommodate a third adult or two children if required charges for such by negotiation
The Cabin has parking and a supply of logs for the wood burner. Hot water for the en suite shower and sink are heated separately.
All guests are met and any special needs (or wet weather gear can be organised). Three take-away food outlets are nearby, there are a couple of local shops - Spar & Tesco Express within a mile. The space is a great location for rambling, walking and access to the Island cycle paths. A hot home made sharing supper is always available, delivered from the main house to the cabin door to enjoy in front of the log burner. There is a barn facility to wash clothes, boots or muddy gear.
Wifi is not listed as a facility however there is a signal that gives some intermittent cover
There are no restrictions on access to any parts of the orchard, woodland or gardens. Breakfast if required is usually served at the main house kitchen table - viewing the peacocks, chickens and red squirrels by the side of the wood burner. You may be greeted in the garden by the friendly family dogs.
We are a tranquil rural site and we ask our guests to help that tranquility but remember you are in country with all the sounds of nature to hand

Other things to note
Fernhill is a working small holding (some 3 acres) of mixed rural industries. We have a smoke house on site, a barn and other small outbuildings. It is sited at the bottom of a secluded lane. Wellies or boots are essential in the winter months.
While there is adequate parking for motor cars and under cover standing may be provided for motorcycles and bicycles no indemnity is implied or given for such vehicles which are on our site at owners risk
The IOW is a tranquil largely rural place with a gentler pace of life
The major industry on the island is tourism and has been a popular holiday destination for many decades
Good clean beaches
Almost every weekend through the summer from April to October there is a festival of some description on the island for interests ranging from chart topping live music,steam engines,the arts and theatre. Many popular comedians include an IOW venue on their nationwide tours
If required a service wash laundry service is available at a small additional charge
We would wish all of our guests to respect the rural environment of Fernhill. There are wild water birds on the pond, and gates must be shut after entry or exit. There are no locks on any of the buildings or house. The kitchen is primarily the guest use area.
We are happy to accommodate well behaved children & pets (there is a sofa bed that could be used in the lodge for children). Chickens and peacocks are free range, there are gentle family dogs and two Shetland ponies also on the site. Please do not feed the animals without consultation with us.
