The house is undergoing restoration but the grounds are worth visiting. When you walk out to the lake, you forget you are in a town . Concerts are held here too.

I was brought up in Far Cotton and took for granted the beauty and tranquility of the walled garden. Lots of re building at the moment and the catering is no longer FODA. But still a great place to go and maybe just have a cup of tea.

An excellent location grabbing a bit of Northampton's history. There is a historic building undergoing renovation, which includes tours and events. I walked the dog in the lovely grounds. Located on London Road it is hidden from the road, but signs indicate its presence. They advertise large events. There is a tea room for snacks and lunches.

This is a lovely parkland area. It's being developed locally as a great attraction. We went to see Jessij in concert there last weekend. Fantastic venue for an evening out for families! The abbey which is a beautiful building, is currently being renovated. I have walked my dog in this parkland many times. I've seen pony club events being held... More
