Urban Fox 20-27 August 2016 Hi I would like to say Thank You so much to Foxhangers for an amazing experience From the first initial phone call to receiving chocolates and wine on our boat - you unpacked and put away my shopping that got delivered -- First Class Service We hired the Urban Fox which was very big and spacious and allowed 3 kids all to have separate rooms - we had 2 large Labrador on board as well and we survived a week with no arguments it was great We travelled to Hungerford and back in a week and met some really nice people / families along the way The Caen Hill was definitely an experience to remember and we had plenty of helpers along the way in total we opened and closed 104 Locks !!! Thank you again Foxhangers !!!! Mrs E Ford ~ Urban Fox Dear Foxhangers Thank you for a lovely holiday. I came with my aunties and uncles and we had a boat called Urban Fox. I loved that the cabin I had could be converted so that I had a desk for my games console. It was easy to do myself - when we first arrived a man called Richard showed us how everything worked. We did some fishing and I caught a fish but my uncle didn’t. I really enjoyed helping to operate the locks and my uncle even let me drive the boat! I am looking forward to going back next year.

Urban Fox 12-19 September Our party of 5 adults and a dog headed west from Foxhangers in Urban Fox for our 1 week "cruise". A fairly comprehensive hand over and we were on our way. Our 9 berth boat which we chose so we could each have our own bedroom without the need to make up beds in the lounge area each night and the freedom for everyone to turn in when they wanted to, worked well. It was very well equipped especially the galley. With the exception of one, all the canal side pubs made us, including the dog, very welcome. Food and drinks were outstanding everywhere we went. We made it to the Avon in 3 days at a leisurely pace before turning back. One tip we would highly recommend is to make a note of the places you want to stop on the return journey so you know where to stop to reduce walking. It can get busy in the popular spots and mooring spaces get filled quickly at the end of the day. Mr Wallis ~
Urban Fox 6th March 2015 It was fantastic, but exhausting. The kids had an incredible time and the adults had fun too, (largely when the kids were asleep). The boat was huge, coped with the 8 of us very well and the weather couldn’t have been better. Mr R Whitbread ~ Urban Fox 20th September 2014 We hired the Urban Fox for a week from 20th September and were blessed with really good weather. This was our first foray on a canal boat and we received excellent instruction from Richard before we were let loose! All the staff were brilliant from start to finish, being professional and very friendly. We encountered no operational problems and the barge was very well equipped with all you would need. It was very clean and we found the beds exceptionally comfy. Showers are small, to be expected, but we were surprised at how good the pressure was and plenty of hot water. A nice surprise in the fridge - wine and chocolates! We would thoroughly recommend Foxhangers! The Bates party ~
Urban Fox September 2014 We had a wonderful week - in glorious Autumn sunshine. The boat was very clean and comfortable and remarkably easy to handle. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bath and all the delights of the Kennet and Avon canal it was a truly memorable week - thanks to you all at Foxhangers! The Hervey Party
Urban Fox 12 - 19 July 2014 We had a fantastic holiday along the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I would thoroughly recommend Foxhangers. If you have the chance book it, it is worth every single penny! The Park party
Urban Fox 7 - 14 July 2014 My family of 7 took a week cruising the Kennet & Avon Canal. This was my fifth venture into the canals and we were lucky to choose a week of fantastic weather. We were so glad we selected a Foxhangers canal boat: mechanically it performed exceptionally well and there were absolutely no operational problems throughout the whole week; the boat was clean and very well fitted with all the equipment we could need and every item functioned properly. The beds were comfortable; the lounge was a good size and the bathing facilities as good as they can get on a canal boat. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Foxhangers to the 'beginner' or the experienced. With thanks for making our holiday one to remember for all the right reasons, The Palmer party ~
Urban Fox 14/6 - 21/6.
Amazing holiday we "rushed" all the way to Bath and back again! The boat was brilliant plenty of room for 6 adults, and as each couple had their own room no arguments. The staff were fantastic, as we had never been on a canal boat before they filled us with confidence as we set off. Customer service from booking to returning the boat was 5*+. Trying to organise the (adult) kids to go again !
Doreen Eccles ~ Urban Fox September 2013 Really enjoyed our trip to Bath and beyond on the Urban Fox, September 2013. Mooring up right in the city centre was amazing. Foxhangers staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful during the handover, and the boat was very well fitted out. The Martin Family ~ Urban Fox August 2013 We had a really lovely time and we particularly liked the new boat and its design:
• Storage space and Big cupboards • 2 seater table in lounge • Kitchen facilities • Media suite • Brilliant number of mirrors and full length mirrors • Kitchen design • Water gauge Richardson Family
~ Urban Fox August 2013 I have had 6 narrowboat holidays and without doubt this was the best equipped and serviced boat that I have used. Your attention to detail of the cleaning and servicing was excellent and I would recommend your boatyard to any other hirer! Yours sincerely C Livett
