Whether you are planning a romantic break for just the two of you, a fun holiday with friends or a family holiday with little ones or teenagers, or even with your dog, there will be plenty to see and do on a Foxhangers Canal Holiday.

Your crew will enjoy operating the locks and swing bridges together,  whilst taking in breath taking scenery.

Captain your own narrow boat

There is plenty of wildlife to spot on the way. You might choose to try some fishing or cycling, and you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to canalside pubs.Canal side pubs

All of our boats have been designed and built here at Foxhangers. Our smallest boats are 2-4 berth, our largest 6-9 berth and there are many options in between.  Visit our guide to choosing the best boat for your holiday


“The (walking) pace of life on the canal is very relaxing. If you are looking to get away from the “Rat Race” for a bit, this is the perfect tonic. One very quickly adapts to the slower pace, and this enables you to gorge yourself on the stunning British countryside and to catch many glimpses of wildlife. swans, Herons and Kingfishers are in abundance.”

“Build up your arms before you arrive as you will be doing a great deal of waving en route. Not just other boaters but dog walkers and cyclists are all very friendly.”

“The boat was extremely well equipped; the kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were clean and comfortable, the interior was very comfortable and well presented. Full size gas oven was great, although we didn’t cook much, instead choosing to make sandwiches for lunch and heading to the pub for dinner.”
