Snooty Fox 27 August-3 September 2016 Dear Foxhangers, Thank you for a great holiday. I have attached a few photos which you are welcome to use as you wish. The handover procedure was very thorough and informative, explaining the key aspects of the boat. The manual on the boat was a useful reminder when we needed reassurance. The boat was in great condition and well equipped with all the essentials needed for the trip. There was ample storage which was appreciated. We were blessed with fantastic weather through our week aboard, making it all the way to Bristol Floating Harbour and back without a hitch. Our favourite part of the trip was being on the Avon beyond Bath, particularly the final stretch from Hanham Lock to Bristol which was just idyllic. We have had a number of family canal boat holidays previously but this was the first time with our dog, Flynn who loved it. He was very much at home laid down on the stern, supporting the Skipper. Maybe next time we should head east, although this may be a tougher challenge with the number of locks! Thanks again, Robert & Julia Allen ~ Snooty Fox 20-27 August 2016 Had a wonderful time on the Kennet and Avon canal with the Snooty Fox. Didn't have any problems with the boat and it was in an excellent condition. I couldn't find fault with Foxhangers, the introduction to the boat and its operation was great as was the DVD we were sent beforehand. I would definitely use them again. Mr Howell ~ Snooty Fox 2-9 July 2016 To whom it may concern, With reference to our recent holiday on the Foxhangers barge the "Snooty the fox". We would like to thank the very professional manner of all the staff, from the first point of booking with your extremely friendly and helpful receptionist and booking agent. The barge was very well equipped, and we had no problems with any mechanical issues. We enjoyed all the friendly barge owners along the canal, and would recommend this as a holiday to all, ages. Thank you very much. With kind regards Mr And Mrs Griffiths ~ Snooty Fox, 20 - 27 September 2014 Had a wonderful time the boat handled well and was very comfortable. Your team did you proud Would certainly recommend your company Many Thanks The Johnson Family ~ Snooty Fox, 24th to 31st May Many thanks to the entire Foxhangers team for facilitating a wonderful holiday. All of the staff we dealt with were friendly and very helpful, especially when we had to change the booking for a larger boat, when more people joined the party. The handover process was thorough without being too intense. For a crew of novice boaters it was pitched just right - employed particularly appreciated the request to try to return the boat with the green side uppermost :-) I cannot fault the boat at all. It was thoroughly clean and well maintained - everything worked exactly as it should - with comprehensive information provided on board covering pretty much every aspect of both the boat and canal. Little extra touches like the local shop delivering groceries to the boat prior to our arrival, and the little 'welcome on board' gift were really appreciated. It has been a real struggle adapting back to the pressures of work after such an enjoyable and peaceful week conducted at walking-pace.
Paul Bodiam ~ Snooty Fox, May 2014 My personal thanks go to everyone at Foxhangers who contributed to a the extremely friendly and helpful experience before, during and after the event. I am confident that no other boat hire company could have exceeded the service and quality that you provided.
Lin, Cornwall ~ Snooty Fox, 2013 I recently spent the summer half term on the Snooty Fox with my three children (15/13/12) travelling west towards Bristol. This was our first ever venture on a canal boat and it was an inspired choice. Foxhangers made the whole process from booking to hand over as easy and stress free as one could get which made the rest of the holiday very easy. My children really enjoyed the challenge of piloting the boat and negotiating the locks and were in complete control after only a few days. The boat itself was in very good order, well stocked and very comfortable so we never felt as if we were roughing it. There were plenty of good memories to take away from this holiday and I would definitely use Foxhangers again.
Christian Jenkins ~ Snooty Fox, 2013 On our return home we commented the bed had been the most comfortable she had slept in on any of the narrowboat holidays we have taken over the past 30 years. We were surprised at the speed at which we negotiated the 16 lock flight. Just over 2hours on the ascent, and, with the help of 2 CRT volunteers, under 2 hours on the descent! We might see you next year - weather permitting!
