History
Fernley Lodge is rich in history having been built around 1884 by Robert Greenish, a well respected resident of Manorbier who established a successful drapers business in Haverfordwest. He built the home for his daughter and son-in-law William Parcell who was a successful tea planter residing for some time in India. The home later became a Rectory, and during the war was a residence for officers from the Manorbier Military Camp. The property has been upgraded and elegantly redecorated by the present owners who have enjoyed living at this lovely, traditional home for the past ten years.
Many original features have been retained including high ceilings with decorative plasterwork and central roses, period fire places, doors and skirting boards, sash windows, and a grand staircase. Location
