Foxhangers Canal Holidays

Canal Boat Holidays

Foxhangers is a family run business and we have been providing holidays in and around the Kennet & Avon Canal since 1974. Our narrow boat holidays have proved extremely popular since we began hiring out boats in 1997 when we had just a single boat!

Our fleet of 15 hire-boats has grown because of what we put down to several factors, but largely our competitive prices, location and a strong understanding of customer needs. We offer canal boat holidays in the UK using traditional narrow boats, competitive hire prices for both weekly and short break holidays and often have special offers on late availability, especially at less busy times of the year.

Our hire fleet consists of 15 narrow boats which include 2 x 2-4 berths, 2 x 2-5 berths, 2 x 4-6 berths, 5 x 4-7 berths and 4 x 6-9 berths. We offer the following lengths of breaks as standard.

• Weekend breaks -available from Friday- afternoon to Sunday or Monday morning
• Midweek breaks- available from Monday- afternoon to Friday morning
•Weekly breaks- available from Friday, Saturday and Monday afternoon
• 10/11 day breaks- available from Friday and Monday afternoon

Foxhangers Canal Holidays is operated from our holiday farm/marina alongside the canal and your holiday will start at the foot of the magnificent flight of 29 locks near Devizes.

From here you can choose to navigate this famous flight and travel east towards Newbury, or for a less strenuous cruise head west, where you can easily travel to Bath or even reach Bristol and back in a week!
