Old Ferry Boat hotel, Holywell

Situated on the banks of the Great Ouze, The Old Ferry Boat is the oldest Inn in England. With it's thatched roof it is famous for a ghost which roams the site and various ghost hunting clubs have stayed the night to spot the apparition of a girl who committed suicide on St. Patrick's Day many years ago! You will however be given a warm, friendly welcome from the helpful team of staff when you visit us at the Old Ferry Boat. Cuisine is cooked to order from freshly prepared ingredients and alongside our extensive main menu we have a specials board and vegetarian options and a children's menu. Choice is therefore not an issue! We are well known for our large selection of mouth watering fresh fish dishes which, of course, are seasonal. You will find all our meals prepared to usual high standards. All 7 of the en-suite bedrooms have individual character and offer homely, comfortable accommodation. The Old Ferry Boat is a popular venue for all special occasions which can be held in our separate function room - all enquiries are welcome. Our garden which looks over the river, or the patio, is ideal for sitting outside and enjoying a relaxing drink in the warmer weather. Everyone can come and join in the fun. If you are coming for a drink, meal or to stay, you can be guaranteed a warm reception.
