About Mick & Jo Jones
We consider ourselves privileged to own these grade 2 listed cottages, one of which was built in 1766, in the village of Wootton Northamptonshire. Wootton village is an ancient Saxon settlement and has other village buildings dating from this time. Our properties were lived in and used by many different people and families as working homes, small holdings and stables. Notably a land agent once lived in the main cottage and collected rent from the local tenant farmers. He kept his pony and trap in the building which is now known as The Coach house. We have lived in the village all our lives and have travelled to many places in the world but always look forward to coming back home. We believe Northamptonshire is an undiscovered County and we would like to share it with others.
Mick & Jo Jones purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Mick & Jo Jones chose Wootton
We were very lucky to have had the chance to buy this property after admiring it for many years. When we bought the property it required a great deal of TLC which has taken us over 20 years. We also had to accept the responsibility of looking after listed buildings which can be costly but also very self rewarding.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the property because of its central location and the excellent road and rail links. We can travel in most directions and within an hour be in a different County, Village,Town, City or the surrounding countryside enjoying the differences that they all have to offer.

Wonderful cottage - home from home
This is a beautiful cottage, and conveniently located for our holiday. The property is very clean and well-maintained, with lots of extras which we weren't expecting, like towels, loo rolls. I cannot fault anything and we found everything we could possibly need to make our stay welcome and trouble-free.
There are several supermarkets quite close by and a handy shop in the village. We tried the local pub, the Yeoman of England, which was very good, and the Toby Carvery is always basic and reasonably priced.
I would highly recommend this cottage, and hope to return sometime.
Excellent holiday cottage.
The cottage is in a good location for exploring and in a quiet spot away from the main roads. It is very well equipped, spacious, warm and extremely clean. The owner is welcoming and on hand if the need arises. For the artistically inclined, 78 Derngate, the fascinating Charles Rennie Mackintosh house, is an easy bus trip away. Highly recommended as a destination for your holiday.
The people who own it, Mick and Jo are brilliant down to earth people.
The cottage id a beautiful wee thing, everything you could possibly want. It's just FANTASTIC. I hate to say that really because you all might book the place and I won't be able to book it again.......DOH !
Still, credit where credit is due !!!! I've stayed in cottages and apartments throughout France, Greece, Spain, Italy, Scotland, England and Switzerland.......and this is the BEST!
Last minute booking to cover whilst builders in, lovely location, every amenity required, everything you would need for a short or longer stay. Mick and Jo were very flexible with booking and did everything to accommodate us.
Stayed in this cottage for most of January this year.
Well-renovated and extremely pleasant and comfortable.
Wootton is ideally placed for transport links (M1/A45)
Nice thoughtful touches by Mick & Jo, meant that nothing was overlooked.
Simple things, like milk in the fridge, tea and coffee, decent loo rolls, to books/dvds/games for those cold evenings in...
Cannot fault the experience and would highly recommend a visit.

Lovely cottage, well equipped. Everything you could need. Mick went out of his way by taking us to train station for visit to London and picking us up, much appreciated. The whole week we felt at home and had an enjoyable stay. Would recommend this cottage. A lot to visit within driving distance including Bletchley Park, we spent 4 hours there.
