Great Location!

Our boats are based at Heyford Wharf on the South Oxford Canal. We’re ideally placed for cruising both the Southern and Midlands waterways – or even further if you hire for three or more months.

We regret that, whilst the Covid 19 pandemic and its social effects remain with us, we cannot provide any bedding, linen, or dishwashing kit. Once the pandemic has fully passed we shall return to provision of these items. (Cutlery, crockery, glassware and cookware will remain available)
