Fern Bank is the home of Helen Grosvenor, after many years in the hospitality industry she spent the last eight years as Head Butler to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire at Chatsworth House. The only female ever to hold the post, she has decided to realise her long held dream to run her own bed and breakfast.
Fern Bank is a Victorian Villa built in 1894, it has been completely refurbished to the highest standards of comfort.
