About the property

This lovely detached cottage is situated in the heart of the peaceful rural village of Crick.

Ideal for a small family, this welcoming holiday home makes a great base at whatever time of year that you wish to visit.

As you enter the property, you will find a delightful and well-equipped kitchen/diner with a feature oil-fired Rayburn cooker.

The cosy sitting room boasts a multi-fuel stove, so why not relax by the fireside after a busy day of sightseeing?

Upstairs there are two comfortable and beautifully dressed double bedrooms, one of which benefits from a TV and en-suite shower room, which means the second bedroom can have the sole use of the family bathroom.

Outside is a pretty courtyard area, where you may wish to enjoy a drink or two, or maybe a coffee before setting off to explore the area.

The village of Crick has everything you need on your doorstep with a shop, a Post Office, three pubs, a tearoom and a canal side restaurant; with the thatched sixteenth century ‘real ale’ Red Lion pub just two doors away.

Crick village also has many places of interest close by such as Althorp House (ancestral home of the late Princess Diana), host to The Althorp Literary Festival, Cottesbrooke Hall, a Queen Anne House dating from 1702 with award-winning Gardens, Canons Ashby, Holdenby House, Stanford Hall, Lamport Hall, Kilworth House and open air theatre, Kelmarsh Hall, and Coton Manor Gardens - a 10 acre English country garden and garden school.

Farrier’s Cottage is also a great location for exploring the three counties of Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

There is Royal Leamington Spa, Birmingham, Warwick and it’s magnificent castle, the British Motor Museum, Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare’s birthplace), the NEC, Silverstone and The National Space Centre, are just a few of the wealth of attractions that can all be reached in any direction within under an hour.

This is a wonderful cottage to be enjoyed at any time of year.
