Northamptonshire is rich in heritage with authentic village life in abundance. With numerous rural and semi-rural locations to choose from, many with their own high-ranking schools, the county offers a rich vein of ‘quality of life’ places to live combining a positive community spirit, good local shops and services and attractive outdoor spaces.
Great place to live
From the beauty of Boughton to the tranquillity of Twywell, last year two Northamptonshire villages, Byfield and Yardley Hastings, were both named by The Sunday Times in their Top 101 best places to live in Britain.
Quality of life
The Sunday Telegraph recently referred to Northamptonshire as ‘greatly underrated’ and ‘much better value’ than its neighbours Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire and in 2014, we jumped 27 places to third in the country in the Halifax Quality of Life Survey. Quality of life for less. Affordable homes just one hour from London.
Within easy reach
Northamptonshire’s location makes it very accessible, ideal for visiting other parts of the UK. Take, for example, Birmingham, Cambridge, Oxford and London, all of which are just one hour’s drive away.
