Set in the the rural countryside of South Northamptonshire, Grafton Cottages are nestled in the picturesque village of Blisworth.
Grafton Cottages offer a collection of 3 distinctly unique properties situated in the grounds of Grafton Villa, a country home built by the Earl of Grafton in 1837 to show off the Northampton stone. Some years later the house became home to the local Doctor and the cottage provided the waiting room and dispensary for his patients. Over time both the cottage, the house and other outbuildings fell into a state of disrepair but the house, cottage and stables have now all been lovingly restored.
Grafton Cottages are ideally located for walkers, with Blisworth boasting an abundance of beautiful walks. The cottage is within easy walking distance of the canal and Blisworth Marina. There is also a lovely walk along the towpath to the famous Blisworth tunnel and barge trips from Blisworth to Stoke Bruerne (and further afield) are available. Northamptonshire boasts a wealth of stately homes and museums - all within easy reach, as is the quaint town of Towcester and the Silverstone race circuit.
A bus stop serving Towcester and/or Northampton is situated right outside the house.

About Tim and Nicky Chapman
We consider ourselves very fortunate to live in a wonderful old stone building on the edge of the Northamptonshire village of Blisworth. Our house used to belong to the local doctor (pre NHS) whilst this lovingly restored cottage used to house his waiting room, the dispensary and the pump for the well! The cottage is in the grounds of our house but totally self sufficient. It is just a short walk from the beautiful canal and a slightly longer stretch to the famous Blisworth Tunnel. We are also within walking distance of pubs and a shop and just a 10-15 minute drive to Northampton, Towcester or Sliverstone.

The property is very well equipped and our aim is to make this a 'home from home' for our guests. If there's anything you require that is not obviously available to you - please do just ask.

A beautiful cottage that met our needs perfectly.
We used the cottage as a base for a short break for our sons 5th birthday. We found it to be in a great location for commuting in to Milton Keynes. It had all the facilities we could need and was clean and well presented.
Tim and Nicky were wonderful hosts, so welcoming and hospitable. They were excellent at providing us with relevant and useful information before and during our stay.
