Farncombe Boat House


The River Wey is often described as Surrey's best kept secret and the prettiest stretch is between Godalming at the most southerly end and Guildford 4 miles downstream.

Farncombe Boat House at Godalming is situated next to Catteshall Lock on its own special 'Island'. Throughout the summer, brightly-coloured rowboats, punts and canoes can be hired by the hour or day and 4 purpose built day narrowboats especially suitable for family outings or business entertainment are available for charter. A fleet of 6 traditional-styled narrow boats can also be booked for short breaks and longer holidays.

'Hectors on the Wey' Bistro, on the riverside lawn, is open all year round for coffees, light lunches, afternoon teas or just a glass of wine!
