Stylish holidays & days out aboard Britain's finest self drive narrowboats


to your holiday!

Welcome to the wonderful world of inland waterways, the fastest way of slowing down!


Oxfordshire Narrowboats is a proudly independent holiday company, offering a real voice at the end of the phone to help you choose the right holiday boat and location for your valuable escape from the pressures of modern day living! Our holiday boats are fully equipped with everything you might need, including 240V USB charging points, Freeview/DVD, bed linen and washing up kit... all you need to do is bring your own personal clothing, food and drink provisions, and a sense of fun!


Your canal holiday with us is one of the safest on water - we even have a 24hr manned emergency callout phone for your added peace of mind - and we willingly provide buoyancy aids for children and non-swimmers. Full tuition is provided so that even a total novice will set off feeling confident about their first waterway adventure!


Our website is fully interactive. Book online,  email us, view boat plans and browse our wonderful galleries of carefully selected images to give you a feel of your narrowboat holiday with us.


Our booking office is manned 9am to 4pm daily except at winter weekends. You are welcome to visit our Heyford and Bradford on Avon bases - but we do recommend you call us first to check your choice of boat is not already out on hire!

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
