We are a small family run business with just three boats offering a high degree of luxury and personal service. Your narrow-boat journey will start at our converted wharf barn, situated on the Oxford Canal which is often regarded as one of England’s most scenic canals. From Twyford Wharf you can either cruise north towards Braunston, Stoke-Bruene, to Warwick with stunning scenery of the windmill at Napton or south to the city of Oxford and onto the River Thames. Cruise up to Lechlade on the Thames discovering great pubs along the way and wonderful scenic views. If you have longer why not the Warwick Ring – cruise to Stratford upon Avon or tackle the River Thames towards London. Opportunities are endless on UK’s most scenic canal.
Many, many great pubs along the way at some really beautiful villages like Thrupp, Cropredy and Ahyno. Get discovering now!
We are here to help you book a wonderful holiday – so – if you have any questions please give us a call and we look forward to welcoming you aboard ‘Chieftain’ or ‘Conqueror’ for a fantastic holiday.
