Renowned locally for its annual Steam Rally, Hollowell lies some 9.5 miles northwest of Northampton and 12.5 miles South West of Market Harborough. Its position affords residents excellent communication links via the A5199 which links to the A14 less than 6 miles away and in turn the M1 and M6 at Catthorpe Interchange. Hollowell Reservoir is positioned to the northern edge of the village and extends to over 140 acres offering excellent facilities for all the family including dinghy sailing, windsurfing, mixed species fishing and a sailing club. Local amenities including grocery store, public house, doctor's surgery, primary and secondary schools can be accessed in neighbouring village, Guilsborough. This larger village is less than 1 mile away and can be accessed via the bus service to/from Northampton, which itself has a mainline train station with services to London Euston and Birmingham Euston, though these routes can also be accessed in Long Buckby village just over 5 miles away.
