Gardens and Outbuildings
The approach to the house is over a graveled drive with a turning circle in front of the house. There is ample parking for a number of cars beside the integral triple garage with further parking beyond.

The garden and grounds lie principally to the east and north of the house. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, studded with mature trees and divided into ‘rooms’ by hornbeam hedges. Immediately to the east of the house there is a decked terrace overlooking a naturalistic pond. On the south side of the garden is a greenhouse and vegetable garden with raised beds.

To the east of the garden are two level paddocks, in the first of which is a timber built machinery store, the size of a double garage, which has potential to be converted into stables should they be required.
Oatfield House lies midway between Hannington and Hardwick to the east of the A43 Northampton to Kettering road. The property is accessed off an unclassified country lane leading from the A43 towards the small village of Hardwick. Hannington lies on the other side of the A43.

The property is well placed for access to Northampton, Kettering and Wellingborough. The latter two towns have main line stations connecting to London St Pancras. The M1 (Junction 15) is about 12 miles to the south and the A14, which links the M6/M1 in the west to the A1 in the east, is about 6 miles to the north east. Northampton, Wellingborough and Kettering all offer leisure, schooling and shopping facilities. State primary schooling is at Walgrave and secondary schooling at Moulton.
