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.
Explore the Fal Estuary and beyond without impacting on the delicate natural environment of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Park up the car and do all your travelling by river. Use the hop-on hop-off ferries to visit Falmouth, Truro and all points between.
