Wow thanks everyone for your help - I also contacted a few folk via email and have found out some really interesting stuff. Craig Slawson of gave me some good info on the chalets - he says they used to have a heated swimming pool outside (my dogs would have loved that) and that they could see right over to the main river before the other houses were built. I'm also informed that the restaurant was originally called Vandykes and this was where the small chalets are overlooking the JB Boatyard dyke today.  

And now I have some info on the Woods Dyke house too, so thans, what else can I pick your brains about???

I remember the restaurant being called Nandos when we moored outside it in 1981.
I have just found an advertisement in a Blakes 1986 holiday guide for a restaurant on Lower Street, overlooking the river, with the name Chumlies - seems too much of a coincidence not to be the same place.

About the mid 1980's I hired a cruiser from Chumley & Hawke. At the time, one of the hire companies had some house boats, 3 small cottages & 2 houses for rent.
The house boats were sold off, and I believe they are the ones currently moored at Wayford Bridge. The 3 small cottages, were also sold off, knocked into one and this then became a restaurant. Could this be the "Chumlies" referred to?
