About this listing
Our annexe was originally designed as a farm office but it was far too beautiful so we decided to share it with guests!Overlooking gardens and fields,with its attic styled ceiling enjoy a truly relaxing stay in a traditional farmhouse setting complete with a traditional farmhouse breakfast,of course.
Situated in the heart of Northamptonshire, we are ideally located for numerous countryside walks including the Nene Way. Pastures Farm is situated on the edge of the fabulous historic Castle Ashby Estate with its small rural shopping yard containing a selection of delightful independent shops. In addition, the historic church of Earls Barton is just a mile away, and across the fields there is Grendon Lakes with its abundance of waterbased activities. There is one firendly village pub, however there is a good selection of eateries within a short drive.
Pastures Farm is a busy working farm. Part of the farm was recently designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The 27 acre area consists of a reedbed and wetland and is the home to many unusual species of birds. A twenty minute circular walk has been created to enable visitors to enjoy all the beauty associated with this particular SSSI.
Guests to Pastures Farm are encouraged to enjoy the gardens and soak up the countryside. We have two friendly dogs, Hattie a black Labrador and Dizzy a rather nutty terrier. We also have two friendly Greyface Dartmoor sheep grazing in the paddock at the back of the house, this particular breed are well known for their amazingly thick curly fleeces and are well worth peering at over the fence!
Being a farmhouse, breakfast is served in our spacious farm house kitchen, allowing guests to get a flavour of what our day to day lives are all about.
We look forward to welcoming you!

Interaction with Guests
There is as much or as little interaction with guests as desired. Although we are a very friendly bunch here.
Grendon is fantastically located. Not only is the village surrounded by open fields, but it is really close to the major road networks which means nowhere is ever very far. The delightful market town of Olney with its regular Thursday market and monthly farmers market is a pretty 15 to 20 minute drive away. The equally lovely towns of Market Harborough and Oundle are around 25 minutes to 30 minutes. Northampton is really not far at all, and Milton Keynes is again just under half an hour away.
We have a fantastic train service to St Pancras from Wellingborough and Northampton station with its line to Euston and Birmingham has recently been revamped. All in all we are very central indeed, but fortunately we can still hear plenty of bird song throughout the day.
