Photo Album

The Old Ferry Boat offers a great deal, friendly staff, tasty reasonably priced food and drink, and a really handy location. We’re dog-friendly too. So we’re always happy to see wagging tails in tow.

This thatched, white-stone inn is said to be the oldest in England. There are even records of drinks being sold here as early as 560 AD. Set in the sleepy hamlet of Holywell, it’s now a fabulous mix of the traditional and the contemporary. Right on the banks of the River Great Ouse, this rustic retreat is a charming spot to use as a base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. And for truly getting away from it all.
At the end of a long day, head to one of our seven cosy bedrooms. They all have bags of character plus everything you need for a restful stay. So you can get your head down, relax in this truly tranquil location, and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.
