See what our happy Customers have to say:

Having driven all the way from North Wales we received a very warm welcome at Twyford Wharf. Having initially been a little apprehensive as neither of the group had been on a narrow boat, we were soon put at ease. We were shown the ‘ropes’ and taught how to steer, go through locks and handle the boat generally. Having a narrow boat made for a very relaxing holiday with very beautiful scenery and friendly pubs along the way. We are already greatly anticipating a second visit.

Thank you for a wonderful week aboard ‘Conqueror’. All the practical aspects of booking and handover was handled elegantly, and the boat lived up well to the expectations. We started south towards Oxford but as the nicer places to moor became harder to find the closer we came to Oxford, we decided to turn north a little sooner than originally planned. That proved to be a good choice, so next time we will go north from the start. Thank you Colin & Louise and Mick for the splendid service and very nice boat.

What a brilliant holiday, no time to get bored and a different view of the world as it drifts by. ‘Chieftain’ is a top quality narrow boat with everything you need on board, even tea, coffee and sugar are provided along with all the essentials such as washing up liquid, cloths, hand towels as well as bath towels. This was our first canal holiday but Colin and Mick showed us the ‘ropes’ and we were away! It will not be our last adventure on the canals – thank you Twyford Wharf Narrow Boats.
