Boat Details
Wily 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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week on Wily Fox.
Love the relaxed way of life and frequent canal side pubs. Boat excellently appointed. Second trip this year and plan again for September.

This was our first canal boat holiday and myself, my husband, children and parents all thoroughly enjoyed it. 
We can’t praise Foxhangers enough.  All the staff we dealt with from start to finish were really friendly and helpful, we had all the information and instruction we needed and the boat was extremely well equipped.  We would not hesitate to use this company again and cannot recommend them enough.

Terrific but tiring holiday.
Service and help outstanding.
Boat was very comfortable.
Would be my first choice for another narrow boat holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend on Wily Fox which was delightfully designed and very comfortable. A trip to Bradford-on Avon and back has everything we could hope for with locks, swing bridges, pubs, fellow travellers, anglers, cyclists, runners and endless wildlife to give us a journey at a walking pace. It was a perfect way to celebrate a special birthday. I would like to mention that we were very impressed with Ray who greeted us & showed us 'the ropes' on Wily Fox last Friday on our arrival. Also, the gentleman whom we handed back the narrowboat to on Monday morning was very welcoming & friendly. You obviously have a good team there.
Thank you Foxhangers and we will happily recommend you.

This experience was excellent from initial booking through to handover and support - it is very rare these days to get such excellent customer service - I thought this would be a once off holiday but I will be back.

Dear All at Foxhangers,

We have just finished a fantastic week on your lovely boat Wily Fox. The whole experience from booking the trip with Sharon and Richard’s tutorials was an extremely positive and enjoyable process. My Father flew from Australia to join myself and my two sons to make it a very memorable 3 generation boys’ holiday. We did the Bath and back trip in a week and found it to be perfect for what we were after, lovely places to moor up and stay overnight, lovely Bradford on Avon and Bath to explore, and the odd pub on the water to add that extra stop off when needed. We all would have happily turned the Wily Fox around on our last day and done it all again, we will be back.

Despite the grim weather and the passage of storm ‘Katie’ over Easter we had a wonderful 4 Days aboard ‘Wily Fox’ travelling between Foxhangers, at the foot of the Caen Hill flight of locks, to the Claverton Pump turning circle near Bathampton.
Yes, the locks were challenging but the swing bridges were a doddle and being active winding ‘Paddles’, opening and closing the lock Gates and meeting and sharing passage through the locks, with other boaters was both companionable and a delight. Cut off from the mobile phone and the laptop in the peace of the countryside, it was so easy to find an isolated spot to moor up for the night - stress was an aeon away. There was the odd pub that we could have visited, for a pint and a meal, but we chose to 'cook in' using the amazing facilities aboard, with a chance to chat before snuggling down for a comfortable nights sleep -no problem!
Our boat ‘Wily Fox’ was brand new and had been properly run in and serviced beforehand. Pickup and briefing was on time taking only half an hour and hand-back with checks at the end of our trip a mere ten minutes. Everything went like clockwork, all details were taken care of by 'Foxhangers ‘ staff with smiles all round.
Will we do it again well, what do you think? The Caen Hill flight of locks beckons.
