This semi-detached cottage is close to the village of Orford near to Snape Maltings and can sleep five people in two bedrooms.

Ferry Cottage is a lovely semi-detached cottage close to the village of Orford just five miles from Snape Maltings in Suffolk. The cottage can sleep five people in one king-size double bedroom and one family room with one double and one single bed, together with a ground floor bathroom. Also in the cottage is a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with woodburner.

Outside is off road parking for two cars and a garden with furniture and BBQ. Ferry Cottage is a delightful cottage from which to explore this lovely part of the country.


The cottage is lovely and the location is very peaceful and secluded with lovely walks in the doorstep. However the one issue that ended up ruining our holiday was the amount of flies in the cottage. I appreciate it's on a working farm but the kitchen was constantly filled with a ridiculous amount of flies which made us feel very uncomfortable eating or preparing food. There were 2 toddlers in our party and the flies would literally crawl all over them as they sat in their highchair. Unfortunately this ruined our holiday and means we wouldn?t go back which is a shame as apart from this we had a lovely time. We tried keeping all windows and doors shut (despite the heat), keeping the kitchen clean and tidy and leaving no food out and using the fly spray provided by the cottage. We even bought a fly swat but no matter what we did still the flies would invade! Ruined what was otherwise a lovely time.
