Foxhunter 2nd -5th May 2017 Had a great time, we will come back again to Foxhangers. Mr Harris-Jarvis
Foxhunter 07-10th April 2017 We had a wonderful weekend! The staff at Foxhangers, from pre-booking all the way through to instructing us on the boat, were kind and so helpful. The boat itself was really well equipped and had everything we needed. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room. A huge big thank you from all of us - you've given us all so many happy memories. Mrs C Ryder
~ Foxhunter 4-7 November 2016 Lovely clean boat. We had a good time - six of us. Ideal for small crowd. Would recommend it. Foxhangers was a good and professional company. Christopher & Jackie James ~ Foxhunter 26-30 August 2016 What a great holiday. Nine of us on board plus a dog. Accommodation cosy but comfortable. Enjoyed the challenge of the Caen Locks. Staff excellent from pre booking through to return. 10/10. Mrs K King ~
Foxhunter 10-14 August Despite far from perfect weather we had a most enjoyable mid-week break on Foxhunter this August. The boat was spotless, the beds/bunks were comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean with everything supplied as promised. What more can I say. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we all enjoyed ourselves including my grandson's greyhound. Mr Curwen ~
Foxhunter and Lazy Fox 28 August-1 September Our family canal boating weekend was fantastic! We had two boats and it was the first time we had ever done such a thing. Foxhangers was the perfect choice with regards to easy of booking, information provided, flexibility and customer service. Plus, the location for picking up the boats and training made it very easy. The boats were well equipped, clean and a pleasure to use and stay on. Foxhangers are a very professional, friendly company and we can certainly recommend them and we will be booking again. Thank you for making our holiday very memorable. Mrs Terrey ~
Foxhunter 11th - 15th May 2015 Many thanks to the folks at Foxhangers for the wonderful vacation! We have vacationed many places and venues but the experience on the canal barge was truly unique and enjoyable. It gives everyone a chance to participate in navigating the canals, opening locks and swing bridges on a very well appointed barge while setting your own schedule. It was our first time and although a bit nervous negotiating a 69 foot barge through traffic and locks we soon became very comfortable and confident - especially with all the folks who offered to help along the way.

Foxtrot and Foxhunter 3rd October 2014
Fantastic weekend. Foxhangers staff were very friendly and professional in showing us around the boats and then left us to our own devices. The boats were excellent quality and perfectly equipped for the weekend.
Would certainly recommend.
A massive thank you to the team at Foxhangers! Mr Pelly ~
Foxhunter September 2014
Once again many thanks for another enjoyable time on the K&A Canal, with Foxhangers. What can I say, all Staff were absolutely kind to us, booking was simple, Foxhunter was just as expected and more and we managed to stop at a different pub every night! Even managed to supply us with good weather, what more could we ask. Will have no hesitation in booking with you again and will definitely recommend Foxhangers to anyone who asks. The Hazell Family
Foxhunter 15 - 18 August 2014
8 of us had a wonderful long weekend, very relaxing. Foxhangers could not have been nicer or easier to deal with. Thank you for making it so relaxing. We will definitely be back! Callan
Foxhunter 30 June 2014
We spent Monday to Friday of last Week July 2014 onboard Foxhunter and travelled from Foxhanger Wharf to Bath. We had the most amazing time ever and we will definitely be coming back. We were fortunate enough to have amazing weather and the week was so relaxing. We will definitely be coming back and doing this again, the facilities onboard the boat were fantastic and I would recommend this to anyone thinking of doing a canal holiday.

Foxhunter 2 - 6 May 2014
Thank you for a lovely holiday - we will definitely be back again!
May Family ~ Foxhunter April 22nd 2013 Six cousins and two lucky husbands (all of a certain age and more!) took Fox Hunter for three days on 22 April and we want to tell you that we had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and, although we did not go very far, every mile was lovely. Your service was exemplary and the boat facilities excellent. Just wish we had thought in time to have Tshirts made! Many thanks from all of us Gay Nealon ~ Foxhunter April 2012 We found the Foxhangers staff very friendly and helpful. In fact another reason for choosing Foxhangers was the helpful advice we received on the phone before we even booked our holiday. Foxhunter was a lovely boat and was very well equipped. It was really useful to have a list of equipment sent to us in advance, so that we knew what to take with us. We liked the layout of the boat; it was great to be able to keep the table up in the seating area and still be able to get past easily. The weather was quite cold - there was a sharp frost a couple of nights - but the boat was nice and warm. The small bath was a real advantage for the younger children. We liked the fact that the fuel was included in the original cost of the holiday. We would like to come back in the future and go west towards Bath. C and I families ~ Foxhunter August 2011 Thank you very much for a wonderful week on the good ship foxhunter. The three generations of our family had a brilliant week aboard especially my twin eight year old girls who thoroughly enjoyed working the locks on our way to Bath. The highlight of the week for me was negotiating the Bath locks especially the Deep lock and turning the boat around up next to Bath weir under full gaze of sightseers. Although we ran aground our training from Chris was second to none and if we still didn't know what to do the local "canallers" would step right in to give us a gentle prod in the right direction. Bombing along at 2mph has never been so much fun. Again many thanks and we certainly look forward to seeing you again next year - roll on the Caen hill locks. The Bartlett and Tustain family. ~ Foxhunter May 2011 My friends and I hired Foxhunter in May 2011, the second year we've been with foxhangers. The boat is well laid out and is perfect for a weeks holiday, the staff are friendly and we had a great time, again. Thank you. Chris Povey Environment Officer, Lower Avon ~ Foxhunter 18 - 21 June Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for an excellent experience on board Foxhunter. It was a shame that my aunt decided against joining us, but it may well have been the correct decision after all. Message just received from my 80 year old mother .............. Well, wasn't that a great weekend? Wonderful weather, wonderful food, wonderful organisation, and I wonder whose idea it was?! ............ and now we get this gift from our lovely children, what lucky people we are. Endless thanks and love must come your way. So I think she enjoyed it! With thanks Sue ~ FoxHunter July 09 Extremely enjoyable, very professional outfit, wonderful settings and the children (9/10/12/14) up for the Caen Hill locks next year! - The 69ft "Foxhunter" would have been a lot harder to manoeuvre if it had not been for the excellent tuition given. All thoroughly enjoyed it we will be keen to return next year and book a Silver fox. The Papa's ~ FoxHunter July A fantastic holiday on Foxhunter for a week from 13th July. We had eight on board, aged from 68 to 5, and we all loved it. The 9 year old fell in the first day, but then said he thought he had learnt his lesson! The boat was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed, and we much appreciated the wine and chocolates in the fridge. The locks and swing bridges kept us all busy, and the 5 year old enjoyed steering the boat, with a little help from her father. It is a beautiful canal, with lots to see and do, and I would thoroughly recommend a Foxhanger canal holiday to anyone. Thank you so much.” Belinda and crew ~ Foxhunter October 2008 “Spent a fantastic four fun packed days moseying up to Bath - great pubs on route and plenty of exercise to keep the waistline at bay. Boat warm and comfortable and remarkably easy to handle most of the time - even by a four year old!!!!! Managed a full cooked breakfast for eight every morning from the well equipped galley.Cold but sunny and, even though we awoke to ice on the inside of the windows, were extremely snug under the great duvets! Definitely want to return and get through Bath next time!! Highly recommended!!!” The Strilkowski's and The King's
