You’ll feel a sense of history among the grandeur and opulence in your own private wing of the late Dame Miriam Rothschild’s home, one of seven grand holiday lets on this vast estate. The house is furnished with original works of art– the majority of which are for sale.
Find a breakfast hamper for your first morning with local bacon, sausages and farm eggs; help yourself to fruit from the trees in season. What was once the ballroom is now a grand dining and sitting room, with original wood panelling and views of the extensive grounds – cook for yourselves or hire caterers, or walk one and a half miles to a very good pub, The Chequered Skipper, on Ashton village green.
There’s plenty to do nearby – walking or cycling through the woodlands on the estate, canoeing or kayaking on the River Nene, visiting stately homes such as Elton Hall and Lyveden New Bield or the historic market town of Fotheringhay.
