Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is a warm, spacious and comfortable house. The furnishings are excellent and seem very new, the kitchen has a good-sized dining table, the living room has 2 sections (a TV area and a dining area). The bedrooms are large enough, with the double having an ensuite shower room. It is very wheelchair-friendly. The location is perfect for countryside activities (we took our dog and found lovely walks through the lake area, literally on the doorstep). The local villages/towns are charming and have all the amenities you will need. There is a very good choice of restaurants within a 15 mile drive. Although set in a quiet area, the house is easy to access from the main roads. We had trips to Oundle, Rushden Lakes, Thrapston, Northampton, Stamford and Milton Keynes (as well as various villages with great pubs like Wadenhoe, Thorpe Waterville, Titchmarsh and Ashton; lovely cafes in Polebrook and Ringstead). Owners are very welcoming and helpful.

Elinor trout fishery self catering cottages

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent place to stay even if some of your family are not into fly fishing for trout as there is loads to see and do and all close by plus there is some stunning walks, but if you are into trout fishing you could not ask for a better place to stay and fish. Elinor trout fishery often holds many national fishing competitions and you can fish it via bank, wadding, row boats and best of all you can use your own float tube here as well. It also holds float tube competitions in conjunction with the British float tube association early in the year. As you can guess I am a float tube trout fisher
