Castle Farm Guest House is a tastefully converted Victorian farmhouse, situated in one of England’s most picturesque and historical locations. With lawns running down to the River Nene at the front and adjoining the site of Fotheringhay Castle to the side, we are well placed to make the most of this wonderful Nene Valley village where Richard III was born and Mary, Queen of Scots beheaded.
There can be few counties in England with quite such a fascinating past as Northamptonshire, let alone one with so many historic houses, fine churches and monuments. Famed for its historical connections, Fotheringhay is home to the birthplace of Richard III and the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. Although only the site of the castle is left, there are still enough groundworks to evoke ideas of what must have been all those years ago. The “motte and bailey” castle was first built by Simon de St. Liz in about 1100, followed some 200 years later by the collegiate church and the foundation of the college. By this time the House of York owned the property. To the north and east lies Rockingham Forest, once annexed by William the Conqueror as his personal hunting ground and still with large tracts of woodland. It is excellent touring country, dotted with unspoilt pretty stone villages and the attractions of Rockingham Castle, Thomas Treshams follies, Kirby Hall and the ancient market towns of Oundle and Stamford to name but a few.
