This unique property, which sits on Edwardian brick arches, overlooks its own private riverside garden and pontoon. On the other side of the river is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a working dairy farm.
Until c.1950 the house was occupied by the Wallingford ferryman, who transported horses, people and freight across the river at the point where the River Thames tow path changed sides. The raised outhouse was the ticket booth associated with the ferry.

Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed here for two nights it was amazing! The house was spotlessly clean and was furnished beautifully it was like home from home. The welcome hamper was unbelievable - eggs, bread, juice, butter, cheese, biscuits,cereal and lots more. It was a haven of wildlife lots of red kites flying around , woodpeckers, geese, swans and to sit on the raised deck with a glass of wine and watch the rowers go up and down was fabulous. Nice walks by the river too. I would definitely recommend this property it was much more than we had hoped for!!!
