Foxtrot 28th April-2nd May 2017
Thank you Foxhangers !
Following a simple but effective handover with Mike on the Friday, to returning the boat on the Monday, everything was excellent and very professional.

Foxtrot & Foxtalbot 30 September to 3 October 2016

A group of 11 had a great weekend on Foxtrot and FoxTalbot. Both boats are fantastically equipped, spacious (for a narrow boat) and in very good working order. The Information provided at the start enabled us to make a very good plan that suited our group well.

All in all a very good weekend.

Many thanks

Foxtrot 25 July - 1 August 2016
We have just returned from a week long holiday on Foxtrot.

From the very first phone call to the handover on day 1, I found the customer service top drawer.

The Kennet and Avon canal is beautiful and well worth a trip. In doing so I can highly recommend doing this aboard a Foxhangers craft, with the backing of their customer service and professional handover, it will instil confidence even to the inexperienced.

Thank you for a great holiday experience.

Foxtrot 25-29 April 2016

Foxtrot 1-4 April 2016

To everyone at Foxhangers
We cannot thank you enough for our fantastic weekend break. From the extremely cheery welcome at Reception, to the beautiful narrow boat, via the efficient induction, we all enjoyed the experience enormously.
The wine and chocolates were a lovely touch, as was the provision of more than one loo roll! In fact the boat was very well equipped and we wanted for nothing.
Thank you for arranging such marvellous weather as well.

Foxtrot 20-14 July

Foxtrot was clean and well maintained. Staff were exactly as I’ve come to expect from narrow boat holiday companies - friendly and helpful - even drove out to intercept us when we left the yard on the first day without out ‘how to’/information folder. 
Bath and back in four nights was easily done and it’s a lovely route.
Would recommend Foxhangers to everyone.

Cunning Fox and Foxtrot 21-24 August

We had two boats Cunning Fox and Foxtrot for a family group of 16 over a long weekend in August. Only three people had previous experience on narrow boats but that did not matter and by the end of the weekend we had two new budding skippers. The size of the boats were just right for what we wanted, although we were full up we all seemed to have plenty of space, the boats are very well designed, clean and well equipped, and Foxhangers could not have been more helpful. With such a big group we tended to eat our main meals at pubs and there was plenty of choice but the Brewery at Seend did us proud, having booked ahead for the first evening. The trip down to Bradford and back was just right giving everyone enough to do in terms of locks and swing bridges, the verdict was that it was all great fun and worth repeating.

Foxtrot 3-6 July
Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly reception staff and sent down to the boat yard to collect our boat Foxtrot. We were then given a demonstration of how to operate a lock and a full run down of the boat including safety tips and the best places to stop for food and mooring on the way. Once complete we were given a lesson in steering the boat and how to stop it and then we were on our way, we had the boat form 3pm Friday to 9am Monday we managed to make it to Bath by Saturday afternoon and back to Devizes on the Sunday, the Foxhangers staff had warned us that Bath was a 10 boat away and they were spot on we set off at 10am and moored up 15 mins form Foxhangers at 8pm we only stopped for locks and to fill with water. The whole weekend was a blast though with everyone trying their hand as skipper, some more successfully than others. The boat itself was very well kitted out with enough space for the 6 of us and all the amenities needed. I will defiantly be contacting Foxhangers again in the future as it was the perfect way to spend the weekend!

Foxtrot 10-13 April 2015

Absolutely fantastic weekend.  We spent the weekend on Foxtrot which was very well kitted out & reliable.  My brother and I plus two friends (all experienced canal boaters) left Foxhangers on a Friday evening and had a very enjoyable cruise up to the Aqueduct just beyond Bradford-On-Avon (including a night out in Bath via Rail), The boat was fantastic and Foxhangers were brilliant, we couldn't have asked for more.  My brother enjoyed a final night fishing near the Devizes Camping and Caravanning club and the Stout is interesting at The Three Magpies pub :-)
A+++ We'll definitely book again.

Foxtrot 3rd to 10th April 2015

We took Foxtrot out for the week 3rd - 10th April. Fantastic time and so lucky with the weather.
Once again, Foxhangers delivered us a lovely boat, clean, comfortable and homely for our holiday.
Great company, great people. We will be back.

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!

Foxtail & Foxtrot 30/05/14


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!

Foxtrot 14/4/14 to 18/4/14

We had the most fantastic week on Foxtrot.  The briefing given at the beginning was excellent and even though we had boat experience, Richard made sure we were completely and fully briefed before we left not only with the boat but with the operation of the locks too.

I was completely bowled over by the facilities available on the boat which far surpassed many of the holiday rentals I have done in the past.  All the equipment you could wish for was available in the kitchen, including sharp knives and an oven, grill and hob which was home from home.  The beds were small but very comfortable and warm.   Most importantly the boat had been beautifully cleaned and credit must go to the cleaners for such a thorough job.

All in all we would without doubt recommend Foxhangers as a company to hire a narrow boat from.  I don't think that all other companies can give such thorough and complete inductions judging by the way some of the locks were treated by others we met on route. 
All in all a perfect holiday which far surpassed our expectations and was great fun.  Enjoyed by my 12 and 15 year old children also and one I am sure we will repeat in the future.  Many thanks to all staff for your exemplary service, from booking to boating to handing it all back.  A seamless operation and credit to all of you for your customer service skills.

Foxtrot 24 September - 8 October 2012

The boat you assigned me was the "Foxtrot", and I could not be more impressed. After a lifetime of working on boats and ships I am always impressed with a very well designed boat and the Foxtrot was an incredibly thoughtful and practical vessel. I have looked at the layouts of may other boats before and since and I think it is the best I have seen, esp. for four people.
The boats equipment was extensive and very easy to use, and the galley very efficiently arranged. I was concerned about how narrow the boat was before actually setting foot upon her, but due to the layout I quickly forgot how small the vessel really was.
I was also most impressed with Mr. Richard, he was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and deeply respectful. his intimate knowledge of the canal and his ability to convey that information helped to make the trip such an impressive experience for us. It is obvious how much he loves the waterways, and what an important part of his life they are. My only regret was that I did not have the opportunity to spend more time getting to know him.
Another fine gentleman helped us when we doubled back through Foxhangers midway through the trip. Sadly I do not recall his name but he too was most helpful in regards to sewage disposal. Your office personnel were equal to the above Gentlemen.
I can recommend your company unreservedly.

Foxtrot September 2012

Thanks to Foxhanger boats, we had a wonderful four days on Foxtrot, in glorious summer-like September weather (weren't we lucky?!). Your staff were so courteous and helpful, both on our departure and also when we arrived back, and the boat itself was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and ran smoothly, without any problems. We have already unreservedly recommended you to one of our friends and will do so to others. We, too, will also hope to come back for another visit. Best wishes,
Barry & Elizabeth Rose

Foxtrot 21/10/12 Weekend Break
Having hired canal boats through a variety of companies of the years I can honestly say Foxhangers have been the best I encountered so far. Great service, friendly staff, a genuine and thoughtful induction, boat in good order and excellent attention to detail with regard to what was provided on board. Sometimes its the little things that make a big difference, and the galley was immaculately equipped (even a cafetiere), tea towels, cleaning products meaning less for us to fetch and carry. The seating and beds were comfortable and clean, free from that musty damp smell you can find on some boats, duvets and covers clean warm nicely laundered. Deposit returned swiftly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending Foxhangers and I will certainly use them again.

Foxtrot June 2012
Three generations of one family plus dog, all had a ball on FOXTROT. Hope to do it again, perhaps on your latest boat. At no point were we more than 14 miles from our home. We enjoyed our locality to home so much.

Foxtrot May 2012
I must tell you what a lovely few days we had on Foxtrot. The weather helped enormously of course but everything was excellent. Foxtrot was very comfortable, well equipped (especially in the catering department), relatively easy to handle (being beginners) and we all were very happy with our surroundings. We would very much like to holiday with you again so we’ll keep in touch.

Foxtrot ~ October 2011
This was our first introduction to narrowboating on the K&A and leaving it until almost November we knew that the weather could be unreliable. However, Foxtrot was beautifully maintained and warm and cosy in the evenings. The collection of the boat and briefing by the team at Foxhangers was clear, comprehensive but also cheerful. We had a great time and we will definitely be coming again...perhaps even go east next time!

Foxtrot - August 2011
We had a wonderful holiday on Foxtrot. The boat was lovely and clean and had everything we wanted. As we had never been on a narrowboat holiday before we had a full induction, which was very thorough and informative - the staff were very helpful. We were looking for a holiday that would suit 3 generations including children aged 14,12 and 9 - a narrowboat holiday certainly fulfilled this. The children loved it, helping with the locks and fishing in the evening. A very enjoyable holiday was had by all.

Foxtrot October 2009
To all at Foxhangers, thank you very much for an enjoyable long weekend break. Apart from myself the 6 friends who accompanied me had never set foot on a narrowboat before and they were amazed at the high standard set by yourselves, so many thanks. I will not hesitate to recommend you and I shall most definitely be hiring from you again in the not to distant future. Many thanks again!

FoxTrot June 09
“We had a mid week break on Foxtrot in late June 2009. The boat was lovely, as were the staff at Foxhangers when we arrived and when we reluctantly brought the boat back! Foxtrot had more than enough room for two couples and 3 dogs (only one of whom jumped into the K&A canal during our holiday!) and was exactly what we wanted. Everyone we met whilst working the locks and swing bridges were so friendly and I will definitely be recommending the K&A and Foxhangers to my friends. See you again.”

Foxtrot May 2009
“We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Foxtrot (22-29 May 2009) - an excellent boat and so well equipped with everything we needed. Mooring in the centre of the City of Bath was amazing and the canal was really beautiful. Being so close to nature and seeing all the young water birds was amazing. Many thanks for a truly memorable holiday.”

Foxtrot May Day bank holiday 2008
"Just a quick note to say thanks for a brilliant holiday! we hired the Foxtrot on the May Day bank holiday weekend in 2008. Excellent training, staff all helpful, friendly and patient, and wonderful boat with excellent facilities. A most relaxing, enjoyable weekend. Excellent detailed information provided about local pubs, stuff to look at, and maps. Boats were straightforward to use (with a bit of practice) and locks, bridges, all the same. Would highly recommend your service to anyone!"

Foxtrot

“For four nights, and three days, we enjoyed being in charge of Foxtrot, one of Foxhanger's fine vessels. As our skills at the helm improved, so did our enjoyment. Rainstorms, not withstanding, we remained cosy and comfortable. To be eye to eye with a resting Kingfisher was "priceless". Thank you.”
