At Fernhill House, we're all about encouragement. Encouraging residents to be themselves, encouraging social interaction and encouraging guests to make their rooms their own.
Our spacious, attractive bedrooms are already fully furnished and tastefully decorated, but can be personalised with mementoes, pictures and furniture so guests can surround themselves with happy memories.
All rooms come with TV points, nurse call alarms and smoke detectors as standard. Some also feature private dial telephones, electric profiling beds, refrigerators, satellite TV points and patio doors to the garden.
So whether you want to gather your new friends to watch Strictly on a Saturday night or just enjoy some escapism of your own, it's always your call.
Our all-inclusive price is based on the room of your choice, so if your needs change there is nothing more or less to pay. This gives you complete peace of mind when budgeting for your future needs.

Croome Court is a mid 18th century neo-Palladian mansion surrounded by extensive landscaped parkland at Croome D'Abitot, near Pershore in south Worcestershire, England. The mansion and park were designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown for the 6th Earl of Coventry, and were Brown's first landscape design and first major architectural project. Some of the mansion's rooms were designed by Robert Adam.
The mansion house is owned by Croome Heritage Trust, and is leased to the National Trust which operates it as a tourist attraction. The National Trust owns the surrounding parkland, which is also open to the public.
Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served by monks until the Reformation.
The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature; the eight mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain and their craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. A walk in the Hills is strenuous enough that Mallory walked here in preparation for his ascent of Everest. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or relax whilst quietly rambling along the wooded slopes.
