About Chalmore Hole Ferry House

Chalmore Hole Ferry House on the banks of the River Thames sits on the southern outskirts of medieval market town Wallingford.  Oxford University Rowing Club is adjacent, and the property famously gets a mention in Jerome K. Jermome's 'Three Men in a Boat'.  Historic pubs, restaurants and the striking 17th century arcaded town hall in Wallingford centre are within a 5 minute stroll. 

This historic ferryman's cottage is brimming with character features and right up until 1950 a Wallingford ferryman was in residence.  The cottage sits atop of Edwardian brick arches and overlooks its own private riverside pontoon and garden.

Around and About

Stunning historic architecture, independent shops, fine inns and restaurants are all within walking distance in Wallingford's medieval and 17th century centre.  The town was the location for the filming of the popular TV series 'Midsummer Murders', and has a theatre, cinema, a large supermarket and an outdoor swimming pool open in summer. 

The Ferry House is within an hour's drive of London, a mere 20 minutes from Oxford and 15 minutes from Henley.  Take a trip on the nearby Cholsey and Wallingford Steam Railway or a tour of the ruined Wallingford Castle.  Landmark historic attractions and sporting venues are within easy driving distance including Silverstone, Stowe Gardens and Blenheim Palace.
