Wigrams house was constructed as a toll house and administrative centre in order to collect levies from boats using the Napton and Warwick Canal. In order to collect this there would have been a small Stop Lock of probably no more than a 6” drop. This lock and the ‘Napton Three’ by the reservoir were looked after by the keeper who would have lived in the cottage.
This cottage has recently been fully refurbished and is now managed by Sykes Holiday Cottages (ref 996499). (www.sykescottages.co.uk/996499).
Should you wish to link your stay in the cottage to bringing a boat alongside, or linking it to accommodation in the Guest House or the camp site please let us know when you book with Sykes.
In addition, we can make addition sofa-bed arrangements available for extra guests over and above that specific in the Sykes site. Please contact Wigrams for more details. This is an additional contract to the Sykes booking
