A beautifully-appointed Jacobean country manor: a house in which to relax and unwind with family and friends.

Mears Ashby is an elegant Jacobean country house, just north of Northampton.

It suits family parties or special celebrations with friends. The house can sleep 18, although you’re welcome to have additional day guests, should you choose (the owners prefer to confirm numbers of extra guests prior to your stay). Should you hold a party, there are additional dining tables available, and extra beds for children.

There are nine beautifully presented bedrooms, three of which are en-suite. The remaining six share two large family bathrooms (and there’s also a downstairs’ cloakroom).

The house has been carefully renovated and retains impressive original features, such as the plaster-work ceiling in the library, and the oak-paneled dining room (which seats twenty in comfort). The front hall is known as the ‘Griffin Hall’, for its magnificent carved newel post.

There is also a large and well-appointed kitchen (with an Aga and additional butlers’ pantry), that leads into a glorious light-filled conservatory, over-looking the garden.

The drawing room offers a comfortable retreat after dinner, and on summers’ evening, the French windows can be flung wide onto the garden.Should dancing beneath star-light prove tricky weather-wise, there is a ‘Night Club’ room, complete with bar, dance floor and impressive sound system. A hot tub is available at additional cost.

Mears Ashby sits in eleven acres of private garden and parkland, and has a tennis court, hot-tub and a fabulous lantern-lit Games Barn, equipped with table-tennis, darts board and table-football. There’s also a croquet set for games on the endless lawns, and a lake, with a little boat on which to bob about.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“The most striking thing about Mears Ashby is its presentation. The decor and furnishings complement the house perfectly, and the emphasis is on rich colour and comfort. Outside is just as impressive – there’s a 17th Century dovecote, and an 18th Century summer house to explore.”

About the Location

Mears Ashby Hall is just outside the Northamptonshire village of Mears Ashby, about six miles from the city of Northampton. The M1 and M6 are within a twenty-minute drive, and it takes under an hour to reach the house from within the M25.

The nearest train station is Northampton, and the nearest commercial airports are Luton and Birmingham.

Things To Do

The garden and house offer plenty of distractions, but should you wish to leave the estate, there’s an endless choice of activities, from horse-riding to cycling (at the nearby Pitsford Reservoir), to motor-sport racing (observing or driving) at Silverstone. Imaginative corporate packages are available too; please drop us a line.

Clive, just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic weekend at your wonderful property. We had a brilliant get together and it was made all the more special by the setting and magic of that house. The way the house is prepared, the décor and the facilities available are all truly out of this world. I very much hope we left it in the way we found it.

Dear Clive, many thanks to you and Pam for allowing us use of your stunning home this weekend. It was the most wonderful way to celebrate a host of milestone birthdays and anniversaries and everybody - from the 4-year-old to the 93-year-old - had a superb time. The Hall is architecturally stunning as well as a very warm and inviting space. Your art and your design choices add to a very special and very stylish retreat. We'd love to come back again!

Hi Pam and Clive, we arrived at 1pm as planned! All is just perfect! It really is a WOW house! As you predicted Pam, I was completely overwhelmed on arrival and after a few hours I think I know my way around now! The kids love it and are having lots of fun already. They have taken over the top floor! Honestly the house is just beautiful - the character and history is quite amazing. The decor and all of your ornaments are just stunning. We can't wait for everyone else to join us tomorrow…….. We all had a fantastic time and loved our Christmas at Mears Ashby Hall!

Dear Pam and Clive, you have the most amazing house which exceeded all expectations (which were high to say the least). The attention to detail has made your home the ultimate special venue and our joint birthday celebration absolutely perfect. Thank you.

I should like to say that we all had a marvellous time at Mears Ashby Hall for my 80th birthday celebrations; it was the perfect place for such an occasion. Everything came up to our expectations and would like to thank you for having everything there for us to use. Daphne our caterer produced a very nice meal enjoyed by all.

Dear Pam and Clive, Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful home for our marriage. It was a great privilege to share it with our children and grandchildren and everything was perfect. We thought it was lovely when we first came, but with all the flowers out and garden at its best in June, it was stunning. Charlotte and Millie were outstanding and we really would recommend them to other of your guests. Quite apart from their great cooking and organising, they worked so hard and with such a calm presence all weekend. We have no doubt that all of this made our families very happy - the children were never short of things to do - from a few weeks old to 15! What a very special weekend it was.

We had a great time at the weekend which was in part due to your amazing house. The sun came out on Sunday and it was glorious. I am not aware of any issues (other than having to leave). I am looking for another occasion as excuse to book again! Thank you.
