Living in Northamptonshire–Quotes from the Locals



"The transport links, great little villages, most stately homes in the country, and the beautiful stone houses ( I might be biased!)"--Instagram user @katy_at_the_manor


"Great country parks and has the most stately homes that have events on throughout the year, ideal for families. Northamptonshire has great transport links with easy access to M1 and M40 making it ideal to travel to London, Birmingham and Cambridge with ease. Housing prices are low compared to down south and get a lot more for your money!"--Instagram user @northamptonfamilies




"It has the name 'The Cotswolds without the crowds' and that's so true! Beautiful stone villages, miles of footpaths, country parks, so many big houses, Althorp, Rockingham, Boughton and so many more. It has some of the most historic churches in Britain, perhaps the best, and the countryside is just incredibly beautiful. We have a new shopping centre at Rushden Lakes which has been built to fit in with the rural environment. There's just something for everyone! I know I'm biased because I was born in the county but it's simply a wonderful place to live."--Instagram user @sunchild57


"We moved here 7 months ago and I’ve fallen in love with the area and the people. I’ve worked as a travel guide for the past decade and this place is a hidden gem. An unexpected surprise that I am in constant awe. I agree with @sunchild57 - gorgeous villages, beautiful historic churches, stunning countryside.. and there is always something going on. It feels very genuine. A space respected by the people."--Instagram user @suddenjourneys



"Love the countryside and villages of the western parts of Northamptonshire, as @sunchild57 said Cotswolds without the crowds. As a keen cyclist it is really enjoyable part of the country to ride. Now living in East Northants and being just a hour from London and so close to the A14 A1 and m1 means access anywhere is possible." --Instagram user @henrycwh1500

"It is a hidden gem, with great countryside, fab pubs, super road network, some great schools, and one of the most friendly and sociable county in the country!"--Instagram user @the_great_present
