Many thanks again,
Steve and Rachel Keith

Foxtail 20-24 April

We had an excellent time with the Foxhangers narrow boats on the Kennet and Avon. This is an exceptional canal (we have cruised many), with lots of moorings and terrific pubs. We were lucky with the weather which helped.  The boat was in excellent condition. Lovely people at the canal yard and bottle of wine was a nice touch.

Foxtail 27th March 2015
We spent a weekend on Foxtail in March 2014 and had a lovely/relaxing time. We had two small children with us who really enjoyed the experience, helping with the locks and swing bridges. The handover was thorough, the staff were friendly/helpful and the lock demonstration useful. The boat was clean and well equipped and we had everything we needed. The wine and chocolates were a lovely touch, albeit they didn’t last long! We would highly recommend Foxhangers and will definitely be going again.

I found the staff at Foxhangers to be very polite, welcoming and of great assistance all the way from booking my boat hire to collection return etc. The information provided was very helpful.
I would recommend Foxhangers and will be booking a week’s holiday with them again in 2015.
An overall, very satisfied customer

Wow
Incredible break yet again from all the staff at Foxhangers, not going to name individually but they know who they are.
Also the gang behind the scenes, getting boats refuelled, cleaned and ready to go again in a tight timeframe.
We had a great time making our way down to Bath, a great City, which we all enjoy visiting this time by water.
Thanks again everyone at Foxhangers, keep up the great work you do

Foxtail September 2014

The whole experience from start to finish was brilliant.
The staff were very helpful indeed and made us feel very welcome.
All was explained in just the right manner with regard to safety.
Foxtail was handed over to us and it was spotlessly clean and tidy.
The trip along the Canal is something my Grand children and I will always remember as it was a lovely way to see nature and the countryside.
Without question we will be back again next year.
Keep doing such a good job!

Foxtail 7 - 11 July 2014

This was the first time we ever tried a narrowboat holiday and our experience means we will definitely be doing it again!
Foxhangers were excellent in every respect - friendly, very helpful and the boat, Foxtail, was extremely well equipped with everything on board that you could need.
The whole experience was great from start to finish.

The staff at Foxhangers are friendly and helpful, we couldn’t have asked for better customer service. The boats were clean, tidy and well presented with everything you could need on board and more. The hand over of the boats to us at the start of our holiday left everyone in our party feeling confident that they could operate locks, bridges and the boats well. Added to that the fact that Foxhangers is located on a truly beautiful stretch of canal we had a really relaxing, interesting and comfortable family holiday which we hope to repeat some day!

Four of us spent a week on one of Foxhangers barges. We were all totally satisfied with the experience. We found the staff at the beginning of the holiday helpful and accommodating.
We loved the small touches of a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates waiting for us a lovely touch. The barge itself was very much to our satisfaction. Plenty of room for us all. The barge was lovely and clean and well appointed. All in all it made for a very pleasant vacation.
We will all recommend Foxhangers to other people.

"Foxtail" was perfect for the two of us. Homely, with everything we needed,
but small enough to be easily handleable by a couple travelling alone.

We had Foxtail, anyway 5berth and a really tidy boat that handled really well. Very well equipped, superb tele and radio reception and comfortable beds and bedding. Generally very well laid out making the best use of space and obviously not skimping on any of the gear. The training was very professional and relaxed which inspired confidence. We had a great time. Thank you Foxhangers!

Foxtail 3rd May 2011

Dear Sirs. Thanks for Damage Deposit cheque. Excellent few days which we all enjoyed. We thought the Foxhanger staff were all very friendly, professional and competent and the boat in first class order. We would certainly do it again and by the way, would we get a discount for a return visit? Thanks again.

Foxtail 22nd April 2011
Just a quick note to say how much we all really enjoyed our Easter weekend on Foxtail! The boat was really well kitted out and very spacious for 4 and had everything we needed for a great trip. I think the glorious weather helped, but we had a fantastic time and would certainly recommend you to anybody who asked - I've already sent your web-link to a friend who also "has always wanted to try a narrowboat and never quite got round to it". Many thanks once again.
