The Old Ferry Boat, St Ives

Located in the sleepy village of Holywell, The Old Ferry Boat is England’s oldest inn. Built before the last millennium, it overlooks the Great Ouse, which winds itself around the tiny hamlet, near St Ives. The beautifully thatched roof and white stonework stand as a monument to travellers who once rested here centuries ago after quenching their thirst and satisfying their hunger with the finest English fare.


Exit the A14 onto the A1096 to St Ives, then follow the A1123 to Earith. After about one mile take the turning for Needingworth then to Holywell.
