    The owners were lovely and very friendly people.. they even left a homemade cake for us on arrival as well as a lovely small bunch of flowers on the kitchen table! (I actually did meet Rosie in passing as I was sitting on the wooden bench that’s shown in the property details and again was encouraged to contact her if we needed anything) In addition, they left a small folder with very clear information and instructions about the property and its appliances etc as well as various tourist information leaflets for the surrounding areas. I thoroughly recommend staying at this bijou property because the owners are not intrusive but are there if needed. I will definitely stay at Little Fern again, and would like to say, many thanks to Rosie and family. Angie
