Farncombe Boat House is set in open Surrey countryside close to the village of Farncombe and its larger neighbour Godalming.

It is located on the National Trust owned and managed River Wey, at the most southerly point of the connected Inland Waterways. Farncombe is ideal for boat owners wishing to be in easy reach of their boat mooring, travelling from either the South coast or from around the London area. Easy access can be gained to Farncombe by using the M25, A3, or any of the main A roads from the South or East of the region.

The River Wey offers both excellent weekend and short break cruises as well as being only 10 hours cruising time away from the Royal River Thames.

All of our non-residential moorings are double breasted and suitable for narrowboats only.

Farncombe is served by its own Railway Station located on the London Waterloo to Portsmouth mainline and is only a short 5-10 minute walk from the Boat House. The village is also served with its own post office, Wakelings Butchers, newsagents, bakery, chemist, launderette, Indian restaurant and fish and chip takeaways as well as a very decent Co-Op supermarket. All just a short walk away.

Godalming is within walking distance as well as being the furthest cruising point on the River Wey. There are moorings on the towpath as well as at the town wharf adjacent to Sainsburys supermarket and Homebase.

Across the road you’ll find a good-sized Waitrose and the start of Godalming High Street offering banks and cash point machines.

Pubs including The Sun and multiple award winning real ale and cider pub The Star, restaurants including Côte Brasserie, nestled amongst several independent traders;- the wonderful greengrocer – Amy Lou, fishmonger – Godalming Fish, delicatessen – The Godalming Food Company, The Godalming Butchers, clothing and gift shops along side the usual high street stores and coffee shops like Boots, Superdrug, Fatface, Robert Dyas, Costa, WH Smith, Waterstones incorporating the Post Office.
