Althorp House

Northamptonshire, England

“The House has a name and a history … ” Henry James.  Althorp House is the most beautiful, grand English stately home to rent for exclusive use and it simply takes your breath away.  Home to the Spencer family since 1508, it brings 500 years of history to life showcasing one of Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, paintings and ceramics. Despite its apparent grandeur and numerous state rooms, we find the house actually very cosy with extremely welcoming staff.  This is a house very well used to entertaining large numbers of distinguished guests and everything runs with quiet efficiency.

John Spencer who built the house in 1508, made it very clear in his will that Althorp House should always be used as a place of entertainment.  This wish has been carried out through the centuries since his death and continues to be adhered to today with magnificent, high profile private events.  The bedrooms have housed various kings and queens throughout the years along with eminent politicians and statesmen.  The walls of this immensely grand stately home have witnessed centuries of history and to stay here is an enormous privilege and experience.

The estate offers a wealth of activities for visitors of all ages to enjoy.


ACCOMMODATION

Guests of Althorp House can stay in magnificent state bedrooms, all with private bathrooms.  Each room has its own unique style and rich history.  There are 19 state rooms, including the truly splendid picture gallery, where a banquet for 200 diners can be arranged.


LOCATION

90 minutes from London by car and 30 minutes by helicopter.


FEATURES

Guests will wonder at the décor, furnishings and art works in this grand stately home.  Enjoy the complete privacy that the gardens, the arboretum and the 550 acres of deer park allow.  There is nothing comparable to experiencing the luxury lifestyle of staying in an English stately home.  Helicopters can land on the lawn and privacy is paramount.
