Northamptonshire Location Information
Northamptonshire ~ The Rose of the Shires
Northamptonshire is a fascinating county and is ideally placed to give you easy access to some of the most popular tourist attractions in England.
Largely rural, rated on a par with the Cotswolds for beautiful scenery, Northamptonshire is dotted with unspoilt pretty stone villages, historic houses and fine churches. Rockingham Castle, Thomas Tresham's follies, Kirby Hall, Althorp - family home of Princess Diana, Canon's Ashby and Sulgrave Manor - the seat of George Washington's family, and many more. These together with gardens, antique, craft and farm shops, pubs and restaurants provide a richly rewarding experience.
Situated in the heart of England, Northamptonshire makes an ideal base to tour Oxford, Cambridge, Stamford, Warwick, Stratford on Avon and the Cotswolds. We have put together a guide to some of the local attractions in and around the county to help you plan your stay with us.
