Ashby Manor House

Northamptonshire, England

The historic family home of the Gunpowder Plot, Ashby Manor is one of the most intriguing homes in England.  From 1375 to 1611 the manor was home to the Catesby family and in 1605, Guy Fawkes, along with Robert Catesby and his conspirators gathered in the gatehouse to plan the infamous Gunpowder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament and assassinate King James I.  In the early 20th Century, Sir Edwin Lutyens integrated the diverse architectural periods and styles of the house to leave it how it is today. Now under the ownership of the Guest family, the house has been carefully restored and modernised to create a comfortable and historic family home.

Ideal for a group, a special family reunion or Christmas & New Year, Ashby Manor has a heated swimming pool and tennis court to keep the active members of a party busy during the warmer months.  Many activities can be arranged locally and it is close to the cultural town of Stratford upon Avon, the home of William Shakespeare.


ACCOMMODATION

The house sleeps 23 people in a selection of bedrooms to suit adults and children.  The bedrooms all have their own charm and character as well as a history.


LOCATION

Situated just 1 hr and 50 minutes by car from London and 45 minutes from Stratford upon Avon, the house is situated in beautiful Northamptonshire countryside.


FEATURES

The house is very old and has huge historic charm and interest with many different architectural periods and styles.  Sir Edward Lutyens pulled all these diverse styles together in the early 20th Century to create the masterpiece that is the house today.  There are several charming and characterful reception rooms which are ideal for entertaining on many different levels.  This can be a comfortable and cosy historic family home but equally it lends itself to entertaining on a grand and interesting scale.  A very special house indeed.
