Ashby Park 1

Ashby Park Heart of England

Lavish Living with comfort, style and panace... and under an hour from London!

Ashby Park in Northamptonshire has it all: an idyllic setting, 400 years of history, style, comfort and charm with a bit of ‘wow’ thrown in for good measure! Built in 1637 and extended some 200 years later in the Victorian era, it boasts some of the finest rooms in our portfolio. The drawing room is pure opulence, with the light streaming through the French doors that open out onto the garden, set off by the finest drapes that complement the furnishings and cushions scattered tastefully around the room. The library at Ashby Park has a wonderful fireplace – ideal for winter evenings – and is the ideal place for an afternoon tea and a chat or an after dinner brandy. The dining hall is sumptuous and is perfect for a formal meal for up to twenty people (and we can fit an extra twelve in the next room), in glorious surroundings. And then next door is the party room where you and your guests can dance the night away and burn up all those calories! And the kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances for you or your caterers.

Guest Reviews

I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic weekend at your wonderful property. We had a brilliant get together and it was made all the more special by the setting and magic of that house. The way the house is prepared, the décor and the facilities available are all truly out of this world.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home for the past weekend. It's such a beautiful building and grounds. We all had a wonderful time and celebrated my wife's 70th birthday in fine style. All in all it was a memorable occasion for the whole family - the setting "made it" for us.

If you enjoy cooking, fine! This is the place for you with the well-appointed kitchen with its five oven Aga and six ring hob. But if cooking’s not your thing, no problem! We can arrange a drop-off meal service, a fantastic chef, either for your whole stay or for a special meal, or you can go outside and barbecue or cook on the fantastic outdoor paella making that turns cooking into fun! And dining out on the terrace on a lovely summer’s evening is the perfect end to any day. And, of course, there are plenty of great places to eat nearby (there is an excellent pub just a couple of minute’s walk away).
