Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the town combines history with modern facilities – including a variety of delightful shops, cafes and restaurants; as well as a monthly farmers market.

Every year the historic charter is celebrated with the local Charter Fair with sideshows, stalls and family events. There is plenty to do if you want to join local activities in the town including bowls at the Thrapston Bowls Club, there is a Badminton Club, and if you like golf you could play a round at one of the golf clubs in the area.

What The Residents Think 
Marjorie - "I'm really enjoying getting to know Thrapston. It's a lovely town. I used to live in a three bedroom bungalow but the garden did become a bit too much for me to manage. Myself and my family were impressed with Castle Court. Having the communal areas is wonderful; I'm getting to know all the residents as they move in at our coffee mornings."

Tom - Tom had moved to Thrapston several yeears ago to an idyllic old cottage. When Tom retired he found maintaining the old building and the large gardens were taking up time he could enjoy elsewhere. "Castle Court really suits my lifestyle. I'm a bit of a sun worshipper so i like to go to Tenerife in the winter for a few weeks at a time. Now I'm here, I can do that without worrying. Plus as it's a new building I'm saving a lot of money on things like heating. When I am here, there are plenty of places to go out whether I'm with family, friends or feel like venturing out on my own.
