Brackley

Ready to bid farewell to the constraints of city life but want good connections and busy, well-heeled vibe? Brackley could be just the place you're looking for and it couldn't be prettier.

Long Buckby

Longing to leave behind the stress of city living in favour of somewhere sedate that boasts spacious townhouses and a thriving community vibe? You'll feel right at home in family friendly Long Buckby.

Oundle

Oxford in miniature: Oundle has the dreaming spires, notable gastronomy and first rate academia.

Middleton Cheney

Cotswolds minus the price tag? Don't mind if we do, this pretty pocket of South Northants has a burgeoning foodie scene, great nearby schools and is just minutes from the M40 to London and Oxford.

Earls Barton

Looking for loft living but want to ditch the Shoreditch price tag? Welcome to Earls Barton where the legacy of the Northants shoe industry lives on in warehouse conversions and, for the wine lovers, there's even a local vineyard.

Finedon

Want to be tucked away in a peaceful enclave but still need to be near the action? Finedon might be all polite tranquility but it's just a short hop to some of the county's best shopping areas and you know you're in the right place when even the local vicar's a celeb.

Canons-Ashby-

Towcester

Crave country living but can't see yourself ditching life in the fast lane? The buzzing market town of Towcester is perfectly positioned for zooming to the big city when required, but, from international motorsports to vast parklands, why leave when you've got all this on your doorstep?.

Thrapston

Leave behind the grind and escape to this charmingly period drama-esque riverside market town.
