orthamptonshire, essentially an agricultural county, has an undulating terrain on which livestock raising predominates. The principal town of Northampton has a long history of shoemaking. Thatch and stone were used in the construction of local villages, and medieval towns like Oundle are worth visiting. The abundance of parish churches and stately country homes, such as Althorp House and Deene Park, has contributed to Northamptonshire's reputation as the county of 'spires and squires'.Click Here For a List of Links to Inns with Websites

Amazing 17th Century inn with old beams and antique furniture with a stunning variety of whiskies and a wide range of ales. There is a tradition started by airmen in World War II of placing coins in the cracks of the inn's beams. Food comes highly recommended.

Hard as NailsWonderful thatched pub in a village which only has one road in. The pub sign is made out of nails and is worth a visit alone. The Chequered Skipper is also the venue for the World Conker Championships, held in October. Although Oak beamed and flagstone floored the Skipper has all that you would expect from a modern contemporary inn such as being Wi-Fi enabled. The Chequered Skipper offers high quality food using local suppliers along with a range of real ales.
