Foxhangers - Dog Friendly Narrowboat Holidays In Wiltshire

Foxhangers is a family run business that has been providing holidays on and around the Kennet & Avon Canal since 1974. Our narrowboat holidays have proved extremely popular since we began operating with just one boat in 1997. Foxhangers continues to be owned and directed by the family who originally founded and grew the business, we employ our own staff, we own all of our boats and property: our sole focus is to provide you with the optimum canal boat holidays. Foxhangers narrowboats are built in our own facilities by our own dedicated professional boat builders: they are specifically designed to be the best possible holiday hire boats.

The Kennet and Avon Canal opened in 1810, and after restoration was re-opened by the Queen in 1990. It passes beautiful, tranquil and unspoilt scenery with an abundance of plant and wild life, through bustling market towns, picturesque villages and past historic monuments. Frequently there are inviting canalside pubs offering lunch or supper. The waterway includes the Georgian splendour of the City of Bath and the pastoral pleasures of rolling Berkshire and Wiltshire, with unique architectural and engineering features of majestic aqueducts and bridges.
