Local Information

Leisure Facilities

When it comes to entertaining, there is a selection of cosy cafes, pubs and inns serving traditional fayre along with local restaurants, meaning there are plenty of options for dining and drinking out. For those in search of a little more hustle and bustle, the larger nearby towns provide additional options to suit any taste on any budget.

Those with an inclination for sport will be spoilt for choice as the town provides a number of excellent facilities which cater for all levels of ability. The Nene Centre boasts a swimming pool, gym, courts, and pitches. The Middle Nene Sailing Club has been a hub of the community since it was established in 1947 and provides casual and competitive sailing opportunities and training as well as a lively social scene. There is also a small tennis club which has been awarded the prestigious LTA ‘Club Mark’.

The tennis club is a regular haunt for high level and social players of all ages – from five years old to the so-called ‘rusty rackets’ – and fields several men’s and ladies’ teams which participate in the East Northants Tennis League.

On top of the wide range of sporting facilities available in the development’s immediate vicinity, there is also the fantastic Xscape in Milton Keynes a little under an hours drive away. Here you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and sledging or even learn to skydive or rock climb.

Those wishing to pursue more cultural excursions can enjoy either the Lighthouse Theatre or The Masque, both in Kettering. Equally, for those who fancy the occasional flutter, Huntingdon Racecourse will entertain the racing enthusiasts whilst Rockingham Motor Speedway and Santa Pod Raceway cater for car fans.

Local Shopping

There are a number of supermarkets within easy distance as well as a local general store, a butchers, and bakers. The closely linked town of Oundle also hosts a sizeable monthly farmers’ market meaning fresh and local produce is freely available.

There is also an assortment of well-known shops at the Newlands Shopping Centre and High Street in Kettering or, further afield, the Grosvenor Centre and Market Walk in Northampton while ‘thecentre:mk’ and ‘intu Milton Keynes’ shopping centres are a shopaholic’s dream.


The area is served by Thrapston Primary School and The King John School, which is one of only two middle schools remaining in the county. For secondary education, Lodge Park and Prince William Upper are both within a 25 minute drive whilst Oundle and Wellingborough Schools provide co-educational day and boarding options within the private sector.


The town has two nearby doctors’ surgeries, a dental practice, and Kettering General Hospital is only a short distance away. It is also home to four churches of differing denominations which cater for pastoral needs.

Transport Links

Situated just off the A14 and A45 between Kettering and Huntingdon, Thrapston is ideal for commuters. The large rail stations at Kettering and Wellingborough are both within a 13 mile radius and run a direct, approximately hour-long service to London St. Pancras International.

The Sidings also lies within 25 miles of Northampton and Peterborough and approximately 14 miles from the A1.
