About the Owner
We consider ourselves privileged to own these grade 2 listed cottages, one of which was built in 1766, in the village of Wootton Northamptonshire. Wootton village is an ancient Saxon settlement and has other village buildings dating from this time. Our properties were lived in and used by many different people and families as working homes, small holdings and stables. Notably a land agent once lived in the main cottage and collected rent from the local tenant farmers. He kept his pony and trap in the building which is now known as The Coach house. We have lived in the village all our lives and have travelled to many places in the world but always look forward to coming back home. We believe Northamptonshire is an undiscovered County and we would like to share it with others.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mick and Jo,
Thank you for the great accommodation. You asked me if it was as nice as the photos but after two nights in the cottage I must say it's even better. The photos can't show the warmth and comfort you provide. I certainly wouldn't consider using hotels again.
Yatun and I can't wait to come back next week for a longer stay so we can relax and enjoy the cottage even more.
5 based on 8 holidaymaker reviews
Last minute booking to cover whilst builders in, lovely location, every amenity required, everything you would need for a short or longer stay. Mick and Jo were very flexible with booking and did everything to accommodate us.
Stayed in this cottage for most of January this year.
Well-renovated and extremely pleasant and comfortable.
Wootton is ideally placed for transport links (M1/A45)
Nice thoughtful touches by Mick & Jo, meant that nothing was overlooked.
Simple things, like milk in the fridge, tea and coffee, decent loo rolls, to books/dvds/games for those cold evenings in...
Cannot fault the experience and would highly recommend a visit.
Beautiful renovated well equipped cottage
Lovely cottage, well equipped. Everything you could need. Mick went out of his way by taking us to train station for visit to London and picking us up, much appreciated. The whole week we felt at home and had an enjoyable stay. Would recommend this cottage. A lot to visit within driving distance including Bletchley Park, we spent 4 hours there. Toby Carvery recommended by owners worth a visit.
This is probably the BEST self-catering cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have been in a few over the years). Warm welcome from Mike and Jo. It was immaculate outside and inside. Provided for all our needs (and more). Excellent parking and good(ish) Wi-Fi. Great location for the history of Northamptonshire and its gardens. Also easy for the shoppers with London and Milton Keynes easy to get to. Cannot praise this place enough
Everything you could wish for
We currently live in Spain and came over to the UK for an extended holiday visiting a number of towns and a number of cottages. I think we saved the BEST till last
Lovely idyllic cottage met all our needs....and more!! Perfect position, quiet yet close by to Northampton and the M1.
Met on arrival - quick overview of cottage. Absolutely no issues at all - a lovely week! A fantastic job on renovation!!!
We will return!!
From the Owner
“We were very lucky to have had the chance to buy this property after admiring it for many years. When we bought the property it required a great deal of TLC which has taken us over 20 years. We also had to accept the responsibility of looking after listed buildings which can be costly but also very self rewarding.”
