I have stayed here a few times now, and can highly recommend to anyone, be it for business or with family for pleasure the rooms are always immaculately presented, and unbelievably reasonable. The breakfast is always first class, and not stingy on the portions either. The owner is friendly and always up for a good chat, but equally strikes that...

We have stayed four times at this guesthouse using the Walford and Shakespeare rooms. The rooms are spotlessly clean and modern with very comfortable beds and largish TV. They each have a silent fridge containing fresh milk and bottled water. The ensuite bathrooms are very modern with separate shower and bath with every need catered for including a plentiful supply...

This guesthouse is truly wonderful and is by far the best I've stayed in during my travels around the UK. The guesthouse is very big and the rooms are huge. No noise from outside or from other guests, so sleeping was not an issue. The rooms were spotless and the ensuite bathroom looked like a showroom bathroom. Karen was the...

Very good accommodation with superb breakfasts - plenty of fresh fruit with a wonderful selection of yogurt and cereals followed by an enormous and delicious cooked full English - then toast and croissants! Karen, our host, was most obliging and you could tell she really took pride and pleasure in looking after us.

Fernhead is a stunning B&B that Karen clearly takes full pride in. Nicer than any hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are beautiful, clean and cozy, the breakfast is vast and delicious, what more could you ask for!

We have stayed in several B&B's this year and this was by the far the best. The owner Karen is accommodating and made us welcome. The room was clean, spacious, with a large bathroom (bath & a separate double shower), we had a fridge (silent running) in the bedroom which was great as we were visiting the Dorset Steam Fair...

Faultless stay recently - good to come back after a few years! I forgot just how good the breakfast was, great value for money, spacious room - and nothing is too much trouble! Loved having a chat over breakfast in the morning too. Quality ingredients and plentiful offerings - next time I won't eat so much the night before so...

On arrival we were greeted by Karen and immediately made welcome . Karen must work so hard to keep such an impeccable establishment and the breakfast was superb . Having stayed here several times before it was nice to meet up with two gents who like ourselves really appreciate the hard work that Karen puts into looking after her visitors...

Came down to Dorset for the Great Dorset Steam Fair with a friend of mine who recommended we stayed at Fernhead Guest House as he had stayed there before. Having not stopped in a b&b for some years now this place was a pleasant surprise. The room was excellent and with plenty of space and very clean. The bathroom modern...

Fernhead Guest House is in a super convenient location. The accommodation and service is superb. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. The breakfast is out of this world and better than anywhere I have ever stayed! Thank you for everything.
