The Old Ferry Boat Holywell near St Ives Cambridgeshire sit's in this pretty hamlet by the Great Ouse. The Old Ferry Boat is reputedly England's oldest inn, built before the last millennium. 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. It was constructed in Anglo-Saxon times, and historical documents record that liquor was first retailed here as early as 560 A.D, although experts estimate that the foundations are a century older. Today the inn is a delightful place to stay offering a very warm welcome and great hospitality to all it's guests. Large car park.
