The house itself is really beautiful and the room we stayed in was decorated very tastefully, very clean and included a lovely selection of teas, fresh coffee and The White Company toiletries along with robes and towels. The ro we stayed in had a bath right by the fire place - bliss! The owners were really helpful and helped us...

Very friendly and helpful greeting. Room was lovely and had everything I needed, even without the shower. The room I stayed in suffered from traffic noise, but ear plugs soon stopped that and it's something that cannot be avoided when staying in listed buildings which can't have double glazing. Breakfast was lovely and set me up for the day. Would...

It was great to find this little jem. Top end b&b but what a bad surprise to have the bed literally shake as lorry after lorry thundered past all night. Didn't sleep until 1:30am and rudely awoke at 6am due to the incessant traffic noise. The age if the building means that windows and walls cannot be sound proofed. I...

What can I say, What a lovely little B & B! We stayed here after we got married at Stoke Park Pavillions with the rest our of close family & friends. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. Because there are only 5 rooms (such a shame it's not bigger) my mum, sister and partner stayed elsewhere but the owners...

We had the small double but wasn't disappointed, decorated beautifully and great shower in en suite. Views over looking the garden. We also booked the 4 poster...

Warm welcome, comfortable bed in a clean and well presented room, stunning breakfast and Lovely owners. Everything you want from a b&b. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice night away. We stayed after a wedding at the race course in stead of a taxi back to Northampton and are so glad we did.

Great room very comfortable and modern, thoroughly clean throughout. Great value for money and Peter and Karen cannot do enough for you. With free parking next door and a number of restaurants around the location is spot on. It's just a shame that I cannot stay here more often.

We were welcomed into the guest house and made to feel at home every second we were there. Very nice room with kingsize bed. Massive double shower. My brother had the other room at the top which was also very spacious. My parents had a big room with a four poster bed and a huge roll top bath. The breakfast...

We have just returned from our stay at Highcroft house, which is charming and beautiful. The hosts are lovely, and really make you feel at home. We stayed in the Ashby room, which was fab, the bath in front of the fireplace is delightful. Breakfast was excellent : ) Also very good value for money. I wish we could've stayed...
