What travellers are saying
- Great place to explore and get out a breath fresh air. Some great trails and most are hard stading so not too muddy. Parking was ok.Written 8 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Excellent value for tots. We love to come during quieter sessions and use the under 4s area. Sadly, older kids DO go in despite signs saying not to: I’d like to say the onus is on their parents but it would be nice to see staff saying something to discourage this.
The new play frame has really lifted the place which has seemed recently in need of a facelift.
Despite being a fan of Tigers, I’m disappointed with today (12th Aug) as it’s a very hot day and we were hoping it’d be cooler in there for a safe, sunless play. Unfortunately, it was more like an oven. I saw only one door open. Cold drinks tap broken, slushies machine broken, no ice… It didn’t strike me as particularly safe- there were very red and sweaty children running around and the higher up the frames they went, the hotter it got. I really feel this is something Tigers could improve- it hasn’t put me off going again! 👍🏻Written 12 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Arrived in Weedon on the canal and tried to find this place on Google Maps. However, this didn't work too well and we had to ask a local. Once we arrived we first entered the museum and met a volunteer called John who was a mine of information and explained lots of things about the place in its heyday. We then visited a couple of the antique shops and unusually for us bought a couple of items. We ended our visit with coffee and cake in the book shop/cafe.Written 22 June 2023
- Many dog walkers came in February because of the springlike weather.
This location appeals to me because of its historical past. Daventry is dominated by a hill, which provides excellent views of the town below and the surrounding agricultural land.
If you want to arrive by car, there is free parking available.Written 23 September 2022
- A wonderful collection of vintage and antique items. in a stunning setting. lots of unpaid parking. bathroom facilities a wonderful experience. Definitely worth a few hours.Written 23 September 2022
- It was a little hard for me to find as I was on foot. If you keep walking or cross the parking lot you'll find the sign for the woods. There's a hidden footpath that leads to the heart of the village. I met a friendly local that showed me the way.. Very easy to miss.
I went in July. The kind local advised me that I was late for seeing the bluebells. She said around May.. So if you want to see the gorgeous swaths of blue, make sure you plan the right season.
There is a private property estate in the back of the woods where if you follow the barbed wire fence you can see some of the remains of the homes. They look amazing.
Overall I had to be careful as there are not really any trail maps or people to ask for information. It's too small IMHO to get lost in, but it is smothered in trees. Absolutely lovely. I went early in the morning and I just about owned the place not running into many people. About 11 am is when I started running into people as I traversed random paths.Written 31 July 2022
- A small space but lots packed in! Interesting local historical artefacts and temporary exhibitions. Friendly and knowledgeable volunteer staff. There were quiz sheets and a craft kit to take home, which helped keep our young child engaged. Good place to come on a rainy day. Their website is useful if you want to find out a bit more about what's on before you go.Written 3 November 2021
- I haven't been to Daventry for some time and on my recent visit, I was surprised by the new roads and the expansion of this small market town. This was our stop to see where we were and get our bearings. Nice place.Written 17 August 2019
- If you want a lovely and very peaceful area to go for a walk and enjoy some peace and tranquility then Mantles Heath is a good place to go. Loved it and certainly will go again.Written 17 August 2019
- Great, friendly pub and in a fascinating position by the banks of the Grand Union canal close to its junction with the Oxford Canal. Enjoy a drink and a meal whilst watching the narrowboats chug by! Walk it all off afterwards with a stroll along the towpath!Written 28 November 2020
- I have attended a few weddings at this lovely church in the centre of Daventry. Easy access for all quests and pleasant grounds for photos. A nice place to have a special day.Written 8 July 2023
- This section starts at Badby opposite the pub in the village and is also the starting point of the Nene way walk.
My wife and I walk through a little lane passing some beautiful " chocolate box" style cottages.
Badby is a beautiful little village a few miles from Daventry.
We continued the walk passing over the tiny river nene where it apparently begins.
The walk to Newnham villages is about 1 mile and we walked through mainly farm land to arrive there.
We followed the clear signage through the village for about 0.5 mile until we picked up the Nene way sign next to the attractive church where we turned right down an alleyway.
This section took us past some gorgeous little cottages and then out into farmland where we had never seen so many sheep!
The walk to Little Everdon is very clearly marked and we had a few gates/ bridges to negotiate on route.
The walk to Little Everdon is about 1.5 miles and is a pleasant one.
We arrived in the village after about a 90 minute walk, this complete section was about 3 miles.
A very pretty walk and next, onto Weedon bec.

- A lovely church in the village of Haselbech, in Northamptonshire. Well worth a visit if you in the area.Written 27 July 2018
- I returned to cover a section that I had previously done in 3 visits.
I began at the very start of the Nene way in Badby and walked the mile or so to the attractive village of Newnham.
I continued through the village for about 0.5 miles until I reached the church where the Nene way continues and is well signposted.
From there my walk took me out through fields full of sheep and through gated/ bridged entrances to more fields for about 1.5 miles until I reached the beautiful hamlet of Little Everdon.
The path continues after a short distance taking a left as I left the hamlet.
This next section totalled about 2 miles and most was along paths that were in relatively decent condition.
This section was largely through fields until I reached a road.
I continued directly across the road and headed opposite towards Weedon bec, this part was not well signposted.
I finally reached the bridge in Weedon bec before returning to collect my car in Badby a total of 9.5 miles.
This section was enjoyable and there are a couple of pubs at the beginning and then at the end in Weedon Bec.
My next section will be onwards to Kislingbury.
