Great place to hire a boat and not too far from Banbury. Good prices and nice boats. Great way to spend the day.

Have hired many day boats over the years as we are real canal lovers. This was the best equipped and fittedcthst we have ever hired. To be fair - it is possible to stay overnight on the boat so it would be. It was a swift handover (we have hired a boat for a week from this yard) and we had a great day on the beautiful Oxford canal. I would recommend this company.,

We hired Comet for the day for my Mother's 90th birthday. We had a fabulous day cruising down to Somerton lock and stopping at the Great Western Arms for lunch. We had a skipper for the day which allowed us to enjoy he cruise. We helped with the locks but having a skipper to guide us ensured we had a relaxing day. Fabulous day. Highly recommend. Will go again

We hired Comet - Twyford's smaller narrowboat - for 3 nights and took her up to Cropredy and back. It was incredibly clean, comfortable, well-equipped and easy enough to manage, once we'd learned the basics. Colin was so easy-going, helpful and reassuring and came with us to the first lock, which was a great relief as we were complete novices. People along the way were always ready to pitch in - there's a real sense of community among narrowboaters, who all look out for each other. We were lucky to have the most wonderful weather and sleeping with the doors open and waking to the sound of birdsong and nothing else was absolutely wonderful. Even the dog enjoyed it. Thanks so much, Twyford - we'll be back.
