A glorious hideaway for two, this cosy Victorian holiday cottage provides everything you need for the perfect romantic rural retreat. Crisp sheets, a log burner and breathtaking views leave every visitor relaxed and eager to return. The quirky cottage, with its modern vintage style, is nestled in the heart of the village of Braunston, secluded within the grounds of Southfield House. Every window opens onto a glorious view of the rolling Northamptonshire countryside, which is just waiting to be explored. Fields and canals beckon, as well more than a few local pubs. Whether you are looking for a last minute weekend break, or need a longer stay, we look forward to welcoming you.
