Food Scene

This is a friendly local pub that's just a 10-15 minute walk from our home. Adam and the staff really look after you. Even if you don't want to eat there, you can sit in the cosy sofas next to the open fire and just relax. The food though is lovely and I'd highly recommend it. That said, if it does have one fault, it's probably that it has a limited vegetarian menu but I'm sure if you ask for something they'd be happy to accommodate your request. Pub isn't open on Mondays.

This is a beautiful pub set in a tiny village about 15 minutes' drive from our home. Their food is of an exceptionally high standard and the staff are incredibly friendly. It's our favourite restaurant.

The food here is superb. The Yorkshire Puddings are huge! The surroundings are boutique style, modern but set in an old pub. We love this place!

Located adjacent to the River Nene, this place does simple but delicious food and home made cakes. It's the ideal place to head to after you've had a walk around the Ringstead Lakes nature reserve of any other local walks in this area. The mill wheel still turns which is great to watch.

Sightseeing

This castle is located approximately 20 minutes' drive from us. It was built by William the Conquerer. It's located in quintessential rolling hills of English countryside and during the summer months often has events, such as jousting displays. Well worth a visit to the castle, its gardens and tearooms.

You can get the train from Wellingborough or Kettering (both towns are appx 15 mins drive away) and in under an hour you can be in St Pancras station where your London adventure can begin. We highly recommend starting your day in style and visiting the Champagne bar at St Pancras. You could even end your day in style and enjoy a glass of champers whilst waiting for your train home!

Parks & Nature

Kinewell Lake is great if you want a walk that's not too long. It's a nature reserve with lots of birds to see. There's also a tea room half way round so you can always break up your walk with a cuppa and a piece of cake if you need to (it closes at 4pm though).
