A comfortable, clean, well equipped cottage. We went for fishing and caught lots of fish in a quiet river with a beautiful view over NT land. Martham has a very good butchers and we cooked some scrummy meals in a lovely kitchen. No washing up as they have a dishwasher. Wildlife was amazing, saw deer, owls , kingfisher, swans, ducks and an otter! Would thoroughly recommend staying at Ferry Cottage.
