With a thatched roof and white stone walls, The Old Ferry Boat is considered England’s oldest inn. Overlooking the Great Ouse River, the rooms are tastefully furnished and have free Wi-Fi.

The hotel is a 30 minute drive from the center of historic and picturesque Cambridge, and Duxford Imperial War Museum.

Rooms all include a TV, telephone, stereo, ironing facilities and a private shower room. Some also look out on to the grounds.

The spacious, relaxing restaurant serves a range of meals, from traditional favorites to exotic dishes. Guests are offered a tasty full English breakfast every day.

The Old Ferry Boat was built in Anglo Saxon times. Historical documents record that liquor was sold here as early as 560 AD but the foundations are thought to be a century older.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.2 for a two-person trip.
