Location: Apethorpe evolved around the superb Grade I listed Hall, one of the finest of its type in the country, dating from 15th Century and known to have been host to Tudor and Stuart Royalty, notably Elizabeth I and James I. The village sits above the banks of Willowbrook as it meanders its way to join the River Nene at nearby Fotheringhay. There are footpaths and bridleways leading from the village to the surrounding gently rolling countryside. The neighbouring village of King's Cliffe (1 mile) provides local amenities including a general store, bakery, post office and primary school. The historic town of Oundle lies about 6 miles to the South and provides a good range of family run businesses, shops and restaurants set around the traditional Market Place. Stamford and Peterborough are within reasonable driving distance and offer extensive facilities as well as rail travel with journey times to London King's Cross from 50 minutes. There is an excellent choice of schooling, both state and private, in the region.
