The Space

Situated in the heart of Northamptonshire, we are ideally located for numerous countryside walks including the Nene Way. We are often a pit stop for walkers walking from the most westerly point of the UK St David's Head in Wales to Lowestoft the most easterly point. Pastures Farm is situated on the edge of the fabulous 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 labrador dogs, and an even more friendly kune kune pig - Princess Alice who shares the paddock with our two rare breed grey face dartmoor sheep.

Breakfast is served in our family farmhouse kitchen giving visitors a real farm house experience.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Guest Access

Guests have their own private access and key

Interaction with Guests

There is as much or as little interaction with guests as desired. Although we are a very friendly bunch here.

The Neighborhood

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 is in the throes of being revamped. All in all we are very central indeed, but fortunately we can still hear plenty of bird song throughout the day.

Other Things to Note

Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate pets.

  • Enjoyed an extremely comfortable overnight stay in the Annexe - the bed is both capacious as described and very comfortable with the room including everything we could need for the stay. It would be remiss of me not to also mention the excellent wifi provision so getting online to check the details of our next destination was no problem.

    A good night was followed by an excellent breakfast in the morning (ate far more tasty food than I should have) followed by a tour of the farm and gardens where we saw all the animals whose adventures we'd previously read about on the blog.

    Debbie herself was extremely accommodating and went beyond the call of duty to fit in with our somewhat tight schedule. If we ever need somewhere to stay in the area again we won't need to look any further, thanks!

  • Our stay at Pastures Farm was wonderful! Very peaceful and quiet weekend getaway. Debbie was a fantastic host and made us feel very comfortable and right at home. She really went out of her way to ensure we had a good stay - even helping get lunch reservations at one of her favorite local pubs. I would highly recommend Pastures Farm!

  • Debbie was amazing. She was happy to show us around her beautiful house and farm and help us find a lovely restaurant nearby to eat dinner. She has a gorgeous Christmas shop and we enjoyed our cozy bedroom and entire stay. Hope to come back again next year!

  • Surrounded by fields, a beautiful house in the middle of Rose of the Shires: Northamptonshire. Outside and inside it is what you find in post cards of country houses. The Annexe itself is just out of this world, the bed, the decorations, the views, and the incredible peace you feel once there.
    Debbie and her husband are also an out of this world friendly helpful couple, Debbie's enthusiasm for running the airbnb is wonderful. I will go back as often as I can.

About
Its a bit of a weird one having to describe yourself, It says on the air bnb instructions to say what I like, list five things I can't live without and share my favourite travel destinations, books, movies, shows, music, food etc. So here goes! Well firstly John and I have been married for 30 years and have lived at the farm all that time, we have three great sons Sam ,Ben and Joe. Boom Boom! So what do we like? Well we love to entertain ,socialise,trying new recipes and eating out as well as experiencing new things and of course meeting new people. Both of us enjoy being outdoors, and I thoroughly enjoy gardening, at the moment we are trying to master growing vegetables. Oneof my gretest pleasures is walking, and have successfully scaled the three highest peaks int he UK - not in twenty four hours though but in three years! We like to travel abroad as well as do the tourist thing over here. We genuinely enjoy welcoming guests to our home, John likes it as it gives him the opportunity to try out his gags,(oh dear) and me (I know this sounds cheesy) the opportunity to make people's stay a memorable one. The final thing it says on Air bnb is do we have a motto? - not really but if we had to have one it would probably be either Dont put off until tomorrow what you can do today! Just do it! or Treat others like you would like to be treated.(A bit more cheese)
