Lazy Fox - A new member of the Silver Fox Fleet of luxurious semi-traditional narrowboats, designed, built and maintained to exceptionally high specification by the Foxhangers team.
Standard breaks for this narrowboat:
•Weekend breaks (4.30pm Fridays to 11am Mondays) •Midweek breaks (4.30pm Mondays to 11am Fridays) •Weekly, 10/11 day & fortnight breaks (4.30pm Monday / Friday afternoons to 11am Monday / Friday mornings). A semi-traditional stern has an elevated steering position for greater visibility and improved weather protection in the steering cockpit. Popular with dog owners, the lockable doors provide the bonus of an ideal pen for dogs. Though there isn’t a guard rail to protect the steerer around the back deck, the semi-traditional stern has seating for 2 to 3 people on the storage benches when cruising.
Lazy Fox ~ Is a 64 foot 5+3 berth semi-traditional style narrow-boat ideal for extended families or large groups of up to 8 people. Unique to our fleet It has a reverse layout with the saloon at stern end of the boat meaning the helmsman is never isolated when steering.
There are two sleeping cabins with clever bed designs that offer several combinations of single and double beds: either 2 permanent doubles; or 1 double and 2/3 singles; or 1 double and 4 singles. In addition to the two fixed cabins the dinette area in the saloon creates an additional double berth and a single berth to sleep up to 8 people.
This boat is luxuriously appointed with a beautifully crafted interior in Maple and Cherry woods with Walnut floors throughout. Fitted with modern equipment including a magnificently equipped galley with a full-size cooker and microwave, 240 v electrical system as well as masses of hanging and storage space. This boat has an additional feature of a secondary TV/Games lounge created by simply revolving a single bed that then converts into a desk and TV.

Lazy Fox 28/4-2/5 Thank you for your excellent service and high standard of boats. We all thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and would recommend Foxhangers to anyone looking for a hassle free boating holiday with easy access for loading luggage onto the boat and free secure parking. No complaints whatsoever! Best Regards Paul Kelleway
~ Lazy Fox 31 March - 3rd April 2017 Very enjoyable time aboard lazy fox, I found foxhangers very easy and professional to deal with from start to finish. All the information sent prior to our trip was very informative, including a DVD on safe boating. I would definitely recommend using foxhangers for a canal boat holiday, and will be booking with them in the future. Mr D Poole
Lazy Fox 19-22 August 2016 Really friendly staff and very smooth handover. Boat was hassle free and we had a lovely short break Mrs Karen O’Callahan ~
Lazy Fox 5-8 August 2016 We hired the Lazy Fox for a week in August 2016 and had a wonderful week. I hired the boat for me, my husband and three children aged 9, 12 and 14. The boat was in excellent condition: very comfortable beds and pillows, good bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. Plenty of storage once you discover it all. The staff at foxhangers could not have been more helpful. They gave good instruction (although I had done this once previously so had a general sense) and sensible, clear advice. When we had some trouble with the engine they came out immediately and sorted it out. That part of the K&A canal is magnificent, lots of swing bridges and locks and several aqueducts. We headed West and went to Bath and back and then West up the flight of Caen which was great fun too. There are good pubs en route and easy water points as well as shops for stocking up. Top tips from the week: (1) Don't be a in a rush, there's no point. (2) when coming upstream through the Bath Deep lock CLOSE THE DOORS at the front and make sure nothing is left outside as the water pours through a gap in the lock doors and will soak everything at the front of the boat - in our case books, magazines, jumpers. We will definitely hire a boat again - pity there isn't another Foxhangers somewhere else. Mrs Samantha Broadfoot ~
Lazy Fox 5-9 October A fantastic, midweek break. The boat is well kitted out and I will book up for another trip next year John Harper ~
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 ~
Lazy Fox 14 Sept - 18th Sept 2015 I’m writing to thanks you for a really enjoyable mid-week break on-board Lazy Fox. From my first phone call to make my booking until we drove away from the boat everyone from your company were friendly, helpful and really professional. We look forward to booking another holiday with you in the future. Keith Stitchman
Lazy Fox 10th to 17th of July We had a wonderful trip on the canal heading towards Bath. The boat was clean and well equipped. The booking process was also easy. We got good information before we started our trip. Mrs. Vaage, Norway ~
Lazy Fox 3-10 July Three generations aboard the Lazy Fox debuted in canal boat with a weeklong trip along the Kennet & Avon canal heading for Bath on a Saturday morning in July. Without prior experience with canal boats, but with a few hours of qualified guidance / training of Mike turned out to be a week to remember for both children and adults. A wonderful holiday in totally new but fascinating surroundings. Lazy Fox was a wonderful and well equipped boat that met all our needs during the trip. Despite its size could even we novices, quiet and clean manoeuvre through the locks and Aqueduct, under bridges and swing bridges, or moor at a suitable pub for a nice lunch along the canal. We moved from day to day still and quiet past beautiful and open landscape to Bradford on Avon and then move on to more varied and perhaps even more beautiful surroundings until Bath before returning to Foxhangers. A thank you to all at Foxhangers who made sure everything was set for a wonderful and memorable week at Kennet & Avon canal. Mr Palshaugen, Norway ~
Lazy Fox 15-19 June Hi just a line or two thank everyone at Foxhangers and to let everyone know about the wonderful 4 days we spent on the Lazy Fox. We arrived at Foxhangers on Monday 15th June four nervous pensioners never being on a canal boat before but we were soon put at ease by the welcome we were given by the amazing staff at Foxhangers. We drove down to the boat and unloaded our luggage and when we were ready we were taken through the boat by Richard and had everything explained to us. The boat was very well equipped and spotlessly clean a credit to the Foxhangers staff (please leave it this way when returning) After the initial training we went up to the locks and received more training on emptying, opening and closing the locks nothing was left to chance and all questions answered by Richard in a friendly but professional way. It was then back to the boat and when the Richard was sure that we were happy with what we would be doing we set off. Richard showed how to steer the boat and how to park it up, He then got off and with a cheery wave we set off to tie up for the night by the Three Magpies Pub and have a meal. We then spent the next few days tootling along the canal taking in the amazing views and watching the wildlife. We turned around at Bradford on Avon a lovely place, if you go there visit the lock inn for a meal there's a large variety of food at very reasonable prices. For anyone thinking of going on a canal holiday do not worry about anything go to Foxhangers everything is explained to you there is no rush you will only go when you are ready, we met dozens of friendly people who where always willing to help and give advice in fact we never went through a lock on our own we always went through with others they helped us and we helped them. We will certainly be going boating again and when we do the Kennet and Avon it will certainly be with Foxhangers. One last thing when you book you will be sent a boaters handbook and a DVD these are a must please read them it will make your trip a lot easier I read the book about five times and a bit more sunk in every time.

Lazy Fox 20 - 24 April Thanks to everyone at Foxhangers for an all round excellent service last week whilst we hired Lazy Fox. It was a great boat and great service and we had a lot of fun. hopefully our fancy dress themes were the talk of the canal last week and that the other boaters we assisted with locks and swing bridges (particularly up Caen hill) appreciated having some additional burly men around! We look forward to the next one and in the meantime I've attached a few photos. Mr Perrett
