There are ten boats in the fleet ranging from 2 berth up to 12 berth, offering a range of facilities and each with a character of its own. All are named after the University colleges in Oxford and are painted Oxford blue.
Our canal boats are available to hire all the year round, and each season on the canal offers a different – but equally wonderful – kind of holiday experience…
