About Mr Andrew Fern

We were living busy lives in London both working in retail. When we found out that we were expecting a child we wanted him to have the very best start in life with the opportunity to live in a safe, secure and clean enviroment with the advantage of having both parents with him in his early years. We have managed to utilise our previous knowledge and skills to create a fabulous home and business.

Mr Andrew Fern purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Mr Andrew Fern chose Ussel

After scouring many areas in France in which to set up our home and business, none could revival this. The scenerary is stunning, our piece of paradise!. Many of our guests agree. The area is known as the lungs of France, clean and pure. Its likened to the lake district, the difference being we can provide a little less rain and more sunshine!

What makes this cottage unique

When you stand outside the house which is on an elevation, the views below are breathtaking. The whole valley is surrounded by some of the very tallest trees, which gives the house privacy, its like an oasis in the forest, the gardens have matured beautifully and the pool below glistens in the sunshine. At the end of the lake is the magnificent viaduct which in summer months has the steam train rolling across it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Two years since we stayed in the Mill. The setting is stunning and Andy & Georgina made sure our stay was perfect from the moment we arrived. I tried some fly fishing on the lake which I found wonderfully relaxing and the surroundings were so tranquill. The mill was well furnished and was a "home from home". We had a delightful meal which was prepared by Andy on our wedding anniversary. We do hope to go back some day!

Ssh don't tell anyone how great out holiday was, they'll all want to go

  • 5 of 5

It was superb. from the moment we arrived, we felt the magic working of this special place. We relaxed, explored, chased around, played hide and seek, walked, went swimming, and just sat still in the peace and quiet.

The house and the host were simply gorgeous. It was everything we had hoped for and so much more.

The area had plenty to do to entertain our 2 children, we did aqua parks, kayaking, high ropes courses, visited castles, dams and so much more.

A beautiful location in a buestiful area.

We are already planning a return visit.

Authenticité et accueil chaleureux

  • 4 of 5

Un cadre idyllique entre piscine et lac privé où l'on peut s'adonner à la pêche et au canotage. Accueil chaleureux et attentionné des propriétaires. Gite un peu plus rustique comparé aux chambres d'hôtes plus luxueuses.Calme et tranquillité garantis à proximité de Meymac !
