Swaffham, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
On the edge of the stunning Brecks, Ferry Farm Cottage, Oxborough is a single storey cottage adjoining the owner's farmhouse and sleeps 2. To relax and unwind have a swim in the owner's heated indoor pool, have a sauna or book a massage with the owner who is a qualified Aromatherapist/Reflexologist. Farm and riverside walks. Good for Birdwatching with Barn, Tawny and Little Owls.

The view from the sitting room window is o...

We have just returned from a relaxing week in the cottage which was just right for two people, spotlessly clean and was the best equipped place we have stayed in. Margaret and Steve were attentive but unobtrusive hosts, bringing freshly picked corn on the cob and inviting us to pick cooking apples to bring home. The hot and sunny weather...

Management response:
