Ferry Cottage

Orford 3 miles. This charming, semi-detached cottage is located in the heart of the owners’ 600-acre working livestock farm, close to the village of Orford in Suffolk. This lovely cottage is a perfect base for exploring the Suffolk Heritage Coast by foot, cycle or car and is ideal for nature lovers and birdwatchers, both from the comforts of your cottage surroundings and also from the numerous wildlife reserves close by. Offering far-reaching views over open countryside and marshland and although the cottage is in a remote location within half an hour you can be visiting many of the highlights of this wonderful coastline and inland market towns which has made Suffolk such a popular destination. There are excellent walks from your doorstep and fantastic off and on road cycling also close by. Drive up the unmade road and park up outside your cottage, taking in the view from the front of your cottage. Walk up through your front garden and enter via the main front door where there is a porch, ideal for storing walking gear. Downstairs has a cosy sitting room with woodburner and views over the cottage garden to the front of the property, an ideal room for relaxing whatever the time of the year. There is also a well-equipped kitchen with dining table and a ground floor bathroom. Upstairs has two good-size bedrooms, a master bedroom and a second room with a double and a single bed. Outside this attractive cottage is a lovely private garden where you can relax with a cup of coffee and a good book or dine alfresco using the barbecue. This delightful cottage offers a quiet, rural retreat and there is a wonderful river walk from your doorstep to the delightful village of Orford with its remarkable 12th century castle, a selection of good pubs, a village shop, bakers and excellent fish restaurant and smokehouse. Snape Maltings is a short drive away with an excellent section of shops, eateries and, of course, the world famous concert hall, with events on throughout the year to enjoy. SPB Minsmere is also only a short drive away. A little further afield brings you to the trendy seaside town of Aldeburgh, now home to a wide range of popular shops, restaurants and pubs not to mention the fresh fish for sale along the seafront and wonderful pebble beach. The neighbouring village of Thorpeness is worth a visit with its boating lake, great fun for children and the young at heart alike! Make sure you also visit the nearby market town of Woodbridge and even take a drive further up the coast and explore the popular seaside town of Southwold, Walberswick, famous for its crabbing and the lost city of Dunwich. This rural retreat offers the perfect escape for friends and families throughout the year.
