A major refurbishment project is underway to significantly enhance the amenities at Aquavista’s Cropredy Waterside & Marina.
Based just a short walk from the picturesque Cropredy village and 5 miles from the pretty market town of Banbury, the marina offers 355 moorings in the Oxfordshire countryside on the South Oxford Canal.
The significant investment which is set to complete in March 2024, will see the installation of new high-speed Wi-Fi, CCTV and a new security entrance gate, as well as a new laundry facility with state-of-the-art commercial washer and dryer stacks and pet laundry machines. The investment will also provide eight brand-new luxury ensuite bathrooms with power showers and hairdryers, plus a new dog wash facility for all the four-legged friends at the marina.
In addition, the existing reception area and moorers lounge will see a complete refurbishment with a contemporary colour palette, new furniture and lighting fixtures, and a brand-new outside social space including a pergola and BBQ area will be created. There will also be some other works to improve the aesthetics of the marina more generally.
Speaking about the project, Operations Director, Mark Wanless, said “We purchased Cropredy in December 2021 as part of our acquisition of Castle Marinas. It’s a beautiful marina in a stunning location, but the facilities were lacking. So, we’re delighted to have started these works which will transform the marina and really enhance Cropredy’s reputation as a fantastic place for our moorers to spend their time on the water”.
Cropredy Waterside & Marina is the latest marina to receive investment as part of Aquavista’s commitment to continuously invest in their marinas and to offer the best of waterside life for their customers. In the last 12 months, Aquavista has completed major refurbishments at their Brinklow, and Kings Bromley sites and Wigrams Turn Waterside & Marina in Warwickshire will be refurbished in the first quarter of 2024.
