Tenure: Freehold

A newly converted three storey barn conversion, with paddock, set within the heart of the Estate village of Ashton


Ashton is a charming Northamptonshire village which was designed and constructed by the architect William Huckvale in circa 1885-1900 in the Tudor style for the Honourable Charles Rothschild, who lived at Ashton Wold. More recently, since 1965 the village has been the venue for the annual World Conker Championships, next taking place on 9th October 2016 and organised by the Ashton Conker Club.

Ashton village is located approximately 2.5 miles to the east of
Oundle and occupies an elevated position surrounded by farmland. Still a largely estate village, there is a public house, The Chequered Skipper, that overlooks the village's green. Oundle is renowned for the quality and beauty of its largely Georgian streetscapes and for its Public School, which was founded in 1556 by William Laxton, then Lord Mayor of London. It caters for most day to day retail and shopping needs, with a good range of independent and high street names, including a Waitrose supermarket. Schooling for all ages is well catered for within the town.

Well placed for wider road and rail connections to the capital, the A14 is about 7 miles south of the town, with the A1 about 9 miles to the east. The town is also almost centrally positioned between Peterborough to the north-east, Kettering and Wellingborough to the south-west, all with mainline railway stations with direct trains to London.

Farm Building' style of farmyard at Chapel Farm, Cowslip Barn
