Have been visiting this lovely abbey and gardens hidden away not far from Northampton's town centre for about 55 years now .Always enjoy the quite atmosphere and tranquillity of the gardens surrounding the old abbey. At long last the Abbey is being restored with a lottery grant I believe. The tea rooms are very good as well situated next to... More

We walked our dog here recently due to being blessed with a beautiful sunny day. We've lived in Northamptonshire for 15+ years but are ashamed to say we had never visited before this :/ The Abbey gardens are pretty, with a wonderful array of trees. The walk beyond the gardens is not so picturesque. The Abbey's tea room is run... More

Mature trees set in a beautiful garden with lakes and a cute little tea shop for tea and sandwiches. Perfect for a romantic stroll any time of year

Despite having lived in the area for many years, we had never visited Delapre. Had a nice stroll and had nice teaa and coffee, plus gorgeous chocolate cake, in the cafe. Various bus routes stop at the end of the drive, so if the place is busy in the summer, use the bus. Will visit again and stay longer next... More

This is just the ticket and not far from the town centre. You can walk for ages by the side of the river nene and then have a lovely cuppa and cake in the big house. This is often overlooked and we found it by accident. Glad we did now as it is a good place for children just to... More

I absolutely love coming to Delapre Abbey and tea rooms. The service is great and the cakes are tasty. I've had a few jacket potatoes here, and they have always been delicious. The gardens are beautiful and are a great place to wander around followed by a nice cup of tea.

I live locally, so I walk the dog nearly every day! I feel lucky to have this place on my doorstep. Look out for various functions throughout the year.
