The Ferry House Family


Owned by the Burden family since 2000, our connection to Harty actually goes back much further. As a third generation farming family, we’ve cultivated the land around about since the 1960s and have a deep love and respect for the local area, and The Ferry House’s place within its heritage. We’re lucky to have a wonderful team – you might say extended family – who are as passionate about The Ferry House as we are.


The Ferry House is much more than a business to us. It’s our home, our family & we invest all of our passion into delivering the first class hospitality experience that we know touches people’s lives. We feel privileged that people choose us for their important occasions - whether that’s a meal, stay, wedding or event. We live by our core values - Commitment, Consistency, Family, Quality & Pride - with 'Family' being the most centrally important factor to all we do.



Head Chef James shares the Burden passion for our home grown, family-farmed & locally sourced produce & has an aspirational vision for our 2AA Rosette restaurant. “As a chef, The Ferry House is a special place - the farm, the garden, the estate, the local suppliers, now new things like the butchery - those are all things that few places have any of, let alone all of them. This is a place that supports my ideas & allows me free reign to develop a style of my own”. James Pilcher.

Food Ethos


Our teams green fingers keep The Ferry House well supplied year round with an abundance of fresh fruit, veggies, herbs & botanicals. Working closely with the chefs, their vision, knowledge & passion is fundamental to our unique food ethos. Growing everything from seeds & cuttings, favouring heirloom varieties not easily found in shops & creating wonderful biodiversity, showcasing a unique vision for the Kitchen Garden.

The Kitchen Garden


From our meticulous house keepers, friendly front of housers & behind the scenes faces, there’s a lot of people whose efforts go into making The Ferry House tick. We’re incredibly proud of our passionate team, and know that they are our greatest asset when delivering exceptional hospitality.
