Canal boat holidays for Overseas Visitors

We are always pleased to welcome visitors from overseas. Maybe a few days on the canal to relax away from it all might just be the finishing touch to your holiday. Just give us a call to discuss your options. We could even provide a ‘skipper’ if it makes it easier for you. Our departure point, The Old Barn at Twyford Wharf, is well situated and a short taxi ride from Banbury railway station.

The boats are fully equipped, all you need with you are your clothes and food. We supply towels as standard. There is a large Sainsbury’s supermarket nearby and we would be happy to take you there to do your food shopping.DSC_0074

The cruising routes from Twyford Wharf are varied, allowing you to enjoy the trip North to Stratford-upon-Avon, moor in the canal basin in the middle of town, attend a play, or the Warwickshire ring (both 14 days), taking in both rural England and Birmingham from a completely different angle! You may decide to meander South on the Oxford Canal down to the River Thames and up to Lechlade or downstream to Henley-on -Thames.

If you want to spend some extra time exploring the delights of Warwick (it has a very famous castle) we can recommend a local bed and breakfast or hotel.
