A quiet spot on the South Oxford Canal

Cropredy’s one of those places that’s got everything. Along with all the stuff you’d expect from a good marina, you’ll find views of the Oxfordshire countryside, loads of cruising routes and a nearby village with two great pubs. When you’ve enjoyed some quiet time by the water, Banbury is just five miles away – it’s a historic market town, so there’s castles, museums and a bunch of shops to explore.

This one’s a really spacious marina – it’s got 355 berths, with moorings for narrowboats. For cruising, you’ve got the southern half of the English canal network, plus access to the Thames at Oxford. It’s a pretty special spot.

Things to do in the local area

For some downtime in the countryside, come moor up with us at Cropredy Waterside & Marina. It’s set offside on the South Oxford Canal, a good way from the road, so it’s a great little hideaway – but it’s still got loads going on.

You’ll find Cropredy village just a short walk away from the marina. It’s got everything you need – there’s two pubs, a café, a doctor’s surgery and a shop for all the essentials. We think it’s a great little community. When you’re ready for something more lively, Banbury’s only five miles away – it’s a pretty market town that’s well worth a trip. You can get there by car or bus, but walking’s got the best views. There’s a trail that takes you right along the canal.
