About Ferry Cottage

Views over the Thames from this half-timbered former ferryman’s cottage near the Cliveden estate.

Ferry Cottage was once the home of the ferryman for My Lady Ferry and benefits from incredible views over the Thames. The pretty half-timber cottage  has had a recent refurbishment and now hosts a bright and modern interior and a large patio overlooking the river.

Make the most of your location and head over to the Cliveden estate. Explore the stately home, built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1666 and, as a guest at the cottage, you’re welcome to enjoy the garden at any time – even after all the other visitors have left.  
Ferry Cottage is conveniently located just under an hour’s drive away from London. Take advantage of being so close to the capital and enjoy a day of sightseeing before retiring to the cottage for a bit of peace and quiet.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
