|Directions||From the A361 south of Daventry, turn east at the mini roundabout in Byfield towards Woodford Halse. Within 2 miles turn left at the T junction and within 1 mile at top of long hill, turn right. This is a quiet road but do take care as this turn is on a left hand bend. Turn into the farm entrance on the right after 600 yards, then right again into the site.
|Description||Conker Meet with Harvest Supper
This is one of our favourite sites, set in the beautiful rolling countryside of Northamptonshire; this site is on a working farm. The site is level with good views and, weather permitting, lovely sunrises and sunsets.
This site is a good base for exploring the surrounding area by car, by bike or on foot.
In the area
Canon’s Ashby – 2.2 miles. Elizabethan manor house set in beautiful gardens with an impressive collection of wall paintings and Jacobean plasterwork. Remains of an Augustinian priory.
Daventry – 8 miles. Historic market town has one of the largest market squares in England.
Banbury – 12 miles. The modern Castle Quay Shopping Centre, and the Banbury Museum, just alongside the Oxford Canal. There are interesting waterside walks along the canal system in Banbury.
