The Experience

The magnificent Grade II-listed house dates from 1901 and is one of seven holiday lets dotted around Ashton Wold Estate. It’s named after the artist George Morland and is filled with an awesome display of artworks – you have your own private art gallery, with the majority of the works for sale.

Find a breakfast hamper for your first morning, with local bacon and sausages, farm eggs and tins of baked beans. Hire a caterer or cook for yourselves, or walk to the excellent local pub, The Chequered Skipper, one and a half miles away. There are more pubs and restaurants in Oundle, just three miles away. A shepherd’s hut in the garden is used as a summerhouse and you can play cricket or rounders on the pitch (bring your own equipment).

Walk, canoe or kayak along the nearby River Nene, visit stately home Elton Hall or the historic town of Fotheringhay; the pretty market town of Stamford is 16 miles away.

What can I say? Perfect. We had a wonderful few days in this remarkable property. It was absolutely beautiful with an antique and stunning decor. The facilities are all there from baking tins to a meat thermometer for the BBQ. If I could live here I would. The hosts Carol and Guido and all their staff were helpful, friendly and professional. The grounds are private and well cared for and we had lots of lovely walks and picked some really tasty fruit. I have stayed in many 5* hotels but this was equal to my favourite and better than the others. I highly recommend Ashton Estate.

If you are interested in art then this is the perfect place to stay. Morland Manor has paintings, sculptures, statues and bronzes on every single wall and available space. So much to look at and enjoy. Spacious rooms, beautiful furniture and décor, comfortable beds with gorgeous linen ensure a special and comfortable stay. Outside a large garden, copse and shepherd's hut are yours to experience the peace and tranquillity of a rural idyll. Wonderful.

The neighbourhood

Still owned by the Rothschild family, Ashton Wold Estate is one of the few remaining Victorian/Edwardian era working farms in the country and has acres of ecologically important woodland – ask about farm tours, butterfly walks, tree walks with an expert, yoga lessons and cookery workshops.

Local points of interest from Carol Maibaum

  • Oundle (4 Miles), surrounded on three sides by the River Nene, is a beautiful stone built market town. The town centre has many stone houses over 300 years old, divided by narrow alleys and courtyards.
  • The Chequered Skipper in Ashton Village is a picturesque thatched country pub. About 1 1/2 Mile walk.
  • Tap & Kitchen is a waterside restaurant and bar at Oundle Wharf. Great atmosphere . Ingredients sourced locally. Bar showcases beer from their sister and neighbour Nene Valley Brewery.
  • With a variety of habitats including wildflower meadows, woodlands and wetlands, the Nene Valley is one of the most important inland areas for wildlife in England. Great way to explore. Hire a canoe in Oundle!
  • Rutland Water. An internationally famous nature reserve. Ideal family day out - cycling, wildlife and adventure.
  • Stamford is idyllic enough to have formed the backdrop for television costume dramas such as Middlemarch and Pride & Prejudice. Independant traders create the perfect shopping experience.
