A county located in the East Midlands, Northamptonshire is a destination for the young at heart, and those old before their time - a place that you go to lose yourself, or discover an entirely different side to your personality. Surrounded by beautiful, hilly countryside, and boasting great lakes, fast-flowing rivers, dense woodland, and parkland, Northamptonshire is a nature lover’s paradise. Indeed, there are numerous paths, bridleways and byways to be explored on foot and by bike, and moorlands and farmland that you’ll love to wander across. What you see along the way is entirely dependent upon the direction you take, but your cottage with pool will always be waiting for your return.
As well as its countryside and country parks, which pepper the county in abundance, Northamptonshire boasts an array of attractions, many of which hark back to the county’s rich and varied history. Abington Park offers a glimpse of the county’s history, while the Northampton and Lamport Railway is a restored heritage track designed by George Stephenson. The Canal Museum, Cottesbrooke Hall, Deene Park, Fotheringhay Castle and Rushden Transport Museum are all worth a visit, and you’ll want to take a trip to the Althorp Estate. In fact, there are more attractions across Northamptonshire than you’re likely to be able to see during your stay, so plan each adventure wisely.
Northamptonshire is a beautiful, peaceful county. The settlements of Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Crick, Naseby and Helmdon, to name but a few, offer shopping, dining, days out, and culture, as well as wonderful examples of architecture across the ages. Walk their streets taking in the independent boutiques and big brands, and be sure to stop for a cup of tea and slice of cake along the way. For a true taste of city living, though, it has to be the county town of Northampton, which lies on the River Nene. Here you’ll discover the Royal & Derngate Theatre and the Castle Ashby Gardens, and will be able to continue your journey in any direction you choose.
We are proud to offer numerous cottages with pools across the county of Northamptonshire. There’s nothing quite like returning to your self-catering accommodation to find an inviting swimming pool waiting for you. Our cottages boast indoor and outdoor pools, many of which are heated. Take a dip, lounge beside the water, or clock up a few lengths - the choice is yours.
