About Ferry Cottage

A riverside cottage complete with rose climbing walls and a contemporary interior.

Peeking through romantic woodlands, just metres from the water’s edge is this two-bedroom, chocolate-box cottage. Adding to its charm, white roses climb its stone walls and arched windows peep through the thatched roof. In stark contrast, its sleekly designed, ultra-modern interiors provide a bright and airy space with a touch of luxury. 

You’ll be on the fringes of Agatha Christie’s beloved holiday home, Greenway, with the fairy-tale woodlands behind you. And to the front of the cottage, the sparkling Dart Estuary dotted with sailing boats and Dittisham village in the distance. 
Hop over the river for classic river-side pub, Ferry Boat Inn – just ring the bell at the jetty and the ferry man will soon arrive to take you across.  

You can also jump on the foot ferry which sails to Dartmouth. For walks along the famed English Riviera, loop onto the South West Coast Path. Hike along the subtropical coastline from Brixham to Paington, where you can catch the steam train back to Greenway Halt station.

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.
