Surrounded by lush woodland, Ferris's Cottage nestles at the eastern edge of the Trelissick estate, not far from King Harry Ferry, which transports vehicles and passengers across the deep waters of the River Fal to the Roseland peninsula beyond. This charming traditional whitewashed cottage, built in the late 18th century, has its own partially enclosed garden. Its view is of a lovely lush part of Trelissick garden, where Mr Ernie Ferris, who lived here and now gives his name to the cottage, used to work as a gardener.
