Close to Silverstone, Daventry and Northampton

We are situated approximately 2 miles from the old market town of Daventry, 6 miles from the M1 (Junction 16) and and just 14 miles from the world famous Silverstone motor racing circuit (which can be reached through the back lanes, avoiding the notorious Grand Prix traffic jams).

The expanding business centre of Northampton is only 12 miles away.

Weddings

We are particularly well suited to provide accommodation for guests at the many wedding venues in the area … to name but a few. Subject to prior arrangement we may be able to provide guests with transport to the venue.

Riding

For those of you who prefer horses to hearts and flowers … the popular equestrian centre of Washbrook Farm in Aston-le-Walls is just 15 minutes away.

Historic houses

Northamptonshire has more than its fair share of great romantic and historic houses – within a few miles we have Canons Ashby, Althorp House and Holdenby House. Newnham is ideally located for the intrepid traveller exploring Northamptonshire under their own steam, with a maze of middle and long distance footpaths and cycle-ways crossing the district.

Further afield, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are less than an hour by car, and London is easily accessible by rail from Banbury, Milton Keynes, or the local station at Long Buckby – only 15 minutes’ drive away – which is ideal for Birmingham.

Eating out

The Romer Arms in Newnham is a not only a cheerful and welcoming local, but also a wonderful Portuguese restaurant, offering a great range of superb, tasty and original dishes. Even better, it's only 200 metres from Hillrise!

There are plenty of other excellent local eating and drinking opportunities, a couple of them just a 20 minutes’ walk across the fields for the energetic, but a 10 minute drive will provide a choice ranging from classy Thai, Indian and Chinese food to haute cuisine or quirky country pubs.
