Chose from our three private owner-styled narrowboats, The Squire, The Laird and The Count – all carefully crafted to offer a perfect long term cruising experience for two, or more.

Whilst aboard you have sole occupancy of and responsibility for the boat. We’ll show you through your boat and all of its equipment. Maps and guides are provided as well as buoyancy aids, navigation equipment etc. Unfortunately due to Covid 19 security we are currently unable to provide our full usual service of bedding, towels and dishwashing kit* but we will still make sure there is tea, coffee and fresh milk on board to welcome you on arrival!

Our boats are fully licensed and insured with a current commercial boat safety certificates. Full breakdown cover is available. Comprehensive cruising tuition is provided (including on-board practical boating training for the first few hours) allowing you to feel confident to venture forth and discover our wonderful waterways.

Our boats are based at Heyford Wharf on the South Oxford Canal – ideal for cruising the Southern and Midlands waterway – or even further if you hire for three or more months!. Your boat needs to be returned to Lower Heyford at the end of the hire in as clean and tidy condition as it was hired to you.

*Whilst the Covid 19 pandemic and its social effects remain with us we regret that we cannot provide any bedding, linen, or dishwashing kit. We ask you to arrange to buy/bring your own. Just as soon as the pandemic has fully passed we shall return to provision of these items. (Cutlery, crockery, glassware and cookware will remain available)
