Welcome to Ferndene Farm, a little bit of peace and quiet in the Dargle Conservancy Area. We have lots of beautiful space and a very comfortable self-catering home, perfect for large groups of people and families. The 6 bedroom 1940s dolerite stone and thatch farmhouse is settled snugly in the mistbelt forests of the Dargle. Come and relax in the rather expansive acre-large private gardens or use the house as a base for touring the Midlands Meander.The 6 bedroom1940’s dolerite stone and thatch farmhouse is settled snugly in the mist-belt forests of the Dargle.

Take a walk through the pristine natural forest or head off elsewhere for something to do.
We have a lovely large lounge with real Oregon pine floors and big stone fire place featuring a wood-burning stove for those chilly Midlands winter nights. The dining room features a simply enormous table for eating at and which is also a billiards, pool and snooker table. The kitchen has a further 6-seater table for eating at and its own pantry and servery, so it’s perfect for large groups and families to congregate and cook in together. The old school verandah, which runs the length of the house, is now a series of open passages where you can sit and read or browse the photos of days gone by. Sit out or dine in the courtyard garden, or peruse the larger private gardens at your leisure.
