TraceyTracey our finance director would head off to Ferry Meadows Country Park on the river Nene with it’s visitor moorings in Overton lake.  It’s perfect for families you may wish to walk, cycle, play in the children’s playground, ride a train or visit the on site café and visitors centre.


Emily fox narrowboatsEmily our general manager likes to head to Ely on the river Great Ouse with its riverside mooring and dining scene, she says it is also worth taking time to visit the cathedral which has it origins in AD672. The present building dates back to 1083 with its most famous feature being the stunning octagonal tower and lantern.


paula syred foxboats directorPaula our managing director likes the peace and tranquillity of exploring the Middle Level Navigations and mooring in open countryside to relax, unwind and read a book and to watch for wildlife such as the kingfishers of the old river Nene and goes on to say that if you are extremely lucky you may spot an otter playing before dusk. She also recommends an evening meal at the Golden Lion, Stonea. Although its a scramble up the river bank to reach  and you do have to watch the road the portion sizes are worth it. Just make sure you are hungry.

Check the availability for a last minute break.
