Highgate House, Creaton

Highgate House sits in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside in the village of Creaton. A beautiful 17th century hotel, it specialises in welcoming groups for events of all shapes and sizes.

With 26 acres of grounds, 97 bedrooms, some of the UK’s best conference and meeting facilities, and recently having been named a Wedding Industry Awards Finalist, it is a fantastic, flexible venue in a wonderfully peaceful location.

More details about the hotel can be found here.

Nearby you can visit the villages of Thornby, Cold Ashby, Guilsborough, Spratton, Chapel Brampton and Church Brampton, all have their own charm, and some fabulous pubs to enjoy.  Of course you also have the garden as Coton Manor to nip along to for a walk around their lovely gardens also with Brixworth Park and the beautiful Pitsford Water only minutes away there are plenty of places to take in some of the best countryside the county has to offer.

Pit stop at Pitsford

And if have time why not plan a visit to nearby Althorp House?

There’s so much to see at Althorp House and across the grounds of the Estate.  Charles, Ninth Earl Spencer has been in charge for just 23 of the House’s 500-year history but has striven in that time to make a positive difference, by taking an uncompromising approach to the continuing wellbeing of Althorp.  Showcasing one of Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, paintings and ceramics, each intriguing room of this magnificent family home has a fascinating story of its own.  It’s a fabulous day out, and of course there’s always a welcome in the cafe for you after wandering around the grounds. More details can be found here

Good luck everybody!!!!

    Pick me! Pick me! My other half is a workaholic and my kids are feral. A night in this beauty could save (my very understanding) neighbours ears for a few days at least, because ferals will have a relaxed mothership! 😎

    • annaloudearden September 8, 2017

      Awwww that reply made me laugh! Good luck (with the comp AND the feral children ; )

  • Teenyween September 10, 2017

    Would love to check this hotel out as a wedding venue for my daughter!
