“Quiet and pretty location, good for walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Bring parents, kids and dogs here for a lovely walk around the grounds, aboretum and house. Go further and you can walk around the Ransom Road lakes and see wildlife and countryside on your doorstep. A cafe in the house offers refreshments, there's plenty of parking and toilets. In the aboretum, there are lots of climbing trees for kids. The grounds are connected to open countryside if you want to extend your visit.

nice walks along tracks which you can push a pram along. Really pretty and feels out the way from the town when it;s actually in walking distance.

“Delapidated Delapre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Tucked away behind the woodland belt behind the Eleanor Cross at the edge of Northampton, the house is partly abandoned by the former records archive but it has vestiges of its former stately status with a fine hunting dog kennel and a large walled garden; r the GARDENS are a lovely area - maintained by volunteer special needs students who are rightly proud of their work. There is a vast parkland surrounding the site and amazingly, badger setts in the woodland within a few feet of the busy main road. A great place for a picinic after a hot shopping trip to Northampton.
