Eating Out Locally

We keep menus and directions in the guest information packs. None of the places listed below are in walking distance - they are all a very short drive away or you could use one of the local taxis. We provide wine glasses and bottle openers in all the rooms, so you are welcome to bring back any wine to enjoy in your room.    
When making any reservation, please mention you are staying at Fern Cottage - it's great to know where the recommendations are coming from!
