  • This place is cracking. Tucked away in deepest Northamptonshire, it's easy to find and plenty of parking. Nice gift shop and ticket sells local beers, vodka, Gin, honey and ice cream. I bought three b...  more »
  • Externally the house is very impressive and seems very well maintained. There are extensive, beautifully mown lawns and wonderful views. Unfortunately, due to a lack of time, we were only able to see ...  more »
  • This was our first visit to Boughton House which, contrary to logic, is not in Boughton village but quite some distance away! I had planned our approach using Google Maps but this went a bit awry as m...  more »

  • Spectacular house, full of wonders. Grounds very beautiful, lakes and canals and grass and trees. Walled garden very lovely and romantic. I take issue with 'john' who complains about the guide and the concentration on family history. Family history can be dull but as most of the treasures are family related, and most of the paintings are portraits, you can't know why they're there or what you're looking at without knowing who the people are. The painting in the Great Hall, of the Countess of Southhampton combing her hair in a beautiful flower-embroidered jacket, is one of the great English portraits
  • Tours around the house are very informative and well paced. The grounds are very well kept and easily navigated. The cafe is large with plenty of seating, the choice of food is limited. This venue is a little pricey in all areas with nothing in the way of concessions. An interesting afternoon out.
  • Northampton is proud to host such a wonderful property, with great grounds and friendly service and knowledgeable guides.
  • House tours are informative but restricted. The gardens are wonderfull
  • Stunning landscapes and beautiful home. A really privilege to visit
