Northamptonshire

Situated in the very heart of England, Northamptonshire is an East Midlands county with excellent road transport links to all areas of the UK. Within a comfortable distance to both London and Birmingham, many of its residents commute to the UK’s larger cities, while enjoying a more rural lifestyle at home.

Historical sites such as Althorp House, home to the Spencer family since 1508, and Rockingham Castle are among the finest attractions within the country, however its rolling hills of countryside, areas of stunning woodland and numerous canals also make for fantastic walks and family days out. More modern attractions include the Formula One Grand Prix, which is held annually at Silverstone, the county’s state-of-the-art motor racing circuit.

The Royal & Derngate Theatre, University of Northampton and buzzing nightlife ensure the town centre is also a hive of activity, attracting both visitors and students to the ever-adaptive town.

With much of our hometown steeped in countryside and our love for the rural lifestyle, our offices are located in the picturesque village of Castle Ashby, home to the Castle Ashby House – another of Northamptonshire’s finest attractions.
