Full Weeks

£7,950 - £8,950







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.


  • 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.

  • Hi Clive, We had a great weekend. Thanks so much for being so understanding and helpful. Everyone absolutely loved the Hall. Thanks again.

  • 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.

  • 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.
