Description
Fernbank Guest House is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors for 19 years. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the tourist trade. The guest house trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 4.5 out 5 on trip advisor and being rated 3 stars by VisitScotland. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.fernbank.co.uk.
It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its excellent location in the centre of Prestwick and being just 1 mile from Prestwick International airport.
Fernbank Guest House offers excellent accommodation for both guests and owners.

The kitchen is extremely well presented, having been fully refurbished in March 2014. The kitchen comes fully fitted with both wall and floor cupboards, offering excellent storage.
