Ferndale is a modern, spacious holiday home sleeping six people and two dogs situated in an elevated position overlooking Mortehoe. With lovely countryside views, bi-folding doors opening out onto a level lawn garden and a master en-suite bedroom with its own balcony, this house has everything needed for a perfect holiday in North Devon. The spacious living room is light and airy and has a woodburning stove for cooler evenings, a wooden floor and patio doors opening out into the garden. With additional comfortable seating in the dining area and a small snug off the living room there is ample space for all generations to relax and enjoy time in Ferndale. All three bedrooms are on the first floor, along with a modern family bathroom. Outside, there is a lovely sunny garden which is mainly laid to lawn, parking for three cars on the drive and a useful outdoor shower – perfect for washing away the sand from a day on the beach. The village of Mortehoe has a wide choice of pubs, tearooms and cafes. For walkers, there’s a spectacular circular-ish jaunt from the village that offers some of the very best coastal views and rock formations of any stretch of the South West Coast Path. Head north-east out of Mortehoe to Bull Point, then cut south-west along the coast path, taking in Rockham Beach and Morte Point. Gaze out to sea to Lundy Island, and inland at the extraordinary rock formations that bear more than a striking resemblance to the spiky armour of a stegosaurus. Also in the village, The Chichester Arms offers visitors (and their dogs) a traditional village pub, with hearty home-cooked food and a good range of real ales and ciders on tap.

This is our second family holiday at Ferndale. We love the house and the area it is in. We’ve had a great time. Perfect!

Mrs C M,

We all had a wonderful stay at Ferndale! We found the house spotlessly clean and well equipped. We would happily recommend Ferndale others and would happily stay here again!

Kirsty G,

Our first impression of Ferndale was WOW. The welcome pack for us and our dog was a great touch. It certainly is a home from home. There was absolutely everything we needed and more. It is very clean and well maintained. Stunning view of the sea. We would highly recommend staying here. Very dog friendly.

Mary F,

This was our second stay at Ferndale and once again was fabulous.

Caroline W,

Everything you could possibly want in a holiday home, beautiful, spotlessly clean home, fantastic owners, views and weather. Perfectly perfect.

The perfect base for another brilliant week in Mortehoe/Woolacombe. Welcoming and with everything we could need. The attention to detail is really appreciated. Thanks! See you next year!

Abi M,

Perfect. Lovely house with lovely views. Spotless when we arrived. Modern house with a great homely, welcoming feel. I wouldn’t change anything. Thank you.

A previous g,

After many years of holidaying in Mortehoe, I think Ferndale is the best house we have stayed in. Clean, warm, well equipped, parking and lovely views. Welcome pack much appreciated - for humans and dog too! We had a fantastic week, blessed by great weather. Thank you!

This was a great property and very comfortable and a fabulous location for great walks and beaches.

Mr Howard H,

Great property. Well equipped. Great location for exploring the cliffs. Looking forward to the next stay.

Wonderful week. Welcome pack a lovely thought. Friends in Spindrift next door, also a beautiful cottage. Would definitely stay again. Beautiful, love the master bedroom.

K M,

Really impressive accommodation. Facilities are superb. Easy walk to local pub. Very suitable for a variety of walks.

Hayley M,

We had a wonderful time at Ferndale. The flowers and scones on arrival were a kind and welcoming touch after 5 hours the car! Beautiful, clean and bright. Mortehoe is a friendly place and it is one of the best holidays we have had in the UK - so sad to leave but will be back! P.S. Love that you welcome dogs in the house, hard to find a dog-friendly place as stunning as Ferndale.

Alicia S,

Ferndale is the perfect holiday home, in a perfect location - Mortehoe is a lovely village with all the facilities you would expect. Ferndale provides all the home comforts to relax and enjoy your holiday. Lovely and clean and warm and a very well equipped kitchen. Excellent outdoor facilities for cleaning up after being on the beach. Beds very comfy too. Lovely welcome pack on arrival - thank you very much. We all enjoyed our stay and couldn’t fault anything.

Previous Customer,

All I can say is excellent. Very clean and very comfortable property. We will be back.

Colin B,

Everything you could wish for and more in a holiday cottage. Great walks from your doorstep with Mortehoe village just minutes away for provisions. Pretty well perfect!

Previous Customer,

Felt at home as soon as we walked through the front door. A lovely house with great views and equipped to a very high standard. We’ve had a very relaxing stay here. Hope to return in the future.

Chris D,

Perfect holiday home. Everything you could wish for (5 star +). We will be back.

Mrs C M,

Fabulous holiday house, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Perfectly located for a choice of fantastic beaches and stunning coastal walks. Welcome basket was much appreciated, thank you!

Karen M,

We absolutely loved our week here. The property was perfect in every way - by far and away the best place we have stayed in and we can’t wait to come back!

J B,

It’s an overused phrase but Ferndale really is a ‘home from home.’ The property is modern and welcoming while retaining a homely feel. It’s spotlessly clean and the owners have clearly given much thought to their visitors' comfort. Thank you for a super week!

A previous g,

We had a fabulous week at Ferndale. We have been holidaying in North Devon for 25 years and this was by far the best property we have stayed in. Loved everything about it, the quality of the fixtures, fittings and decor. We particularly love the balcony and the b-fold doors out onto a lovely open space. Booked for next year whilst here.

Caroline W,

Wonderful, everything has been thought of. A lot of care and attention has gone into the property. Well done Kate and Len, plus the cleaners. We have booked both Ferndale and Spindrift for 2019.

Previous Customer,

A wonderful stay at Ferndale. Would love to come and stay again. Perfect location.

Ms C,

The accommodation was everything we hoped it would be. We had the benefit of meeting the owners who were most welcoming. We would definitely recommend Ferndale to others and look forward to returning in the future.

Philip R,

A beautiful relaxing home and lovely peaceful location. Will recommend to friends and hope to return soon.

Mr D G,

Another wonderful week! Thank you for the lovely and thoughtful welcome pack - very well received by all members of the family. A beautiful property and great service. We will be back again!

Abi M,

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at beautiful Ferndale. Basket of goodies was a lovely gesture. Everything you could think of was provided. Our doggies, Holly and Grace, enjoyed the garden

Previous Customer,

We have visited the Mortehoe/Woolacombe area for many years and Ferndale is by far the best accommodation we have ever had, and it’s wonderful that you allow dogs. The property has everything you need, the beds are very comfortable and excellent showers - our border collie loved the outside shower! The location is also excellent - ideal for the older member of our party who could enjoy the views/short walks without having to walk up any steep hills. Thank you also for the basket of goodies you kindly left. Overall we had a fantastic week (including much improved weather!) and will definitely be back soon!

Gillian T,

Excellent standard of accommodation. Presentation of a very high standard. Loved the way the house was designed and the excellent views. The kitchen was well stocked making it easy to prepare big meals including roast dinners. Our children absolutely loved the house and enjoyed playing in the snug. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you.

Lisa W,

Our second visit to Mortehoe. We have now stayed in both [Ferndale and Spindrift] cottages and we look forward to returning next year or later this. A wonderful spot for dog walking and exploring the coast path and surrounding areas. Even the snow blizzard did not put us off
