The Old House

Reviewed 29 April 2013

It felt like home. A warm and happy atmosphere - and that was just the house! The owners, William and Simon are effortlessly welcoming and have made sure that the B & B works at every level for guests. They were quite happy to let us arrive early, and leave late the following day for instance. The large bedroom we stayed in was spotless, with the decoration in keeping with the age of the house. The bed was SO comfortable, we could have been at home. The standards here are very high, with lots of wooden coat hangers, bottled water, and top quality soft furnishings. The towels were thick and fluffy and I actually found the bath towel I used a bit heavy to handle!

Breakfast was un-rushed, with Sunday papers on hand. I am not a breakfast person,and so was quite happy with the (delicious) goats yoghurt and tea, but others were happily tucking into beautifully cooked -to-order breakfasts.

The value-for-money here is quite extraordinary and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you are in the area, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The room we had was at the back, overlooking the little courtyard, so it was very peaceful, with no...

My husband and I stayed on a chilly Easter Sunday, but there is absolutely nothing chilly about The Old House. We received a very warm welcome from Simon and William. Our large, spotlessly clean room,overlooking the square had everything we needed and more. Sumptuous large bathroom towels, complimentary toiletries, plenty of coat hangers, bottled water and the most comfortable bed. Our breakfast was delicious, William you make scrummy scrambled eggs! The house has so much character,beautiful decor and a homely feel with all the little luxuries.
We will certainly stay at The Old House when we visit Higham Ferriers again.

We just managed a one-night stay here, but are delighted we discovered this marvellous 430-year old house alongside an attractive market square in this underrated little Northamptonshire town. A warm but professional welcome from William, and Simon, taking us to a fresh, stylish and very comfortable room with a great view through ancient leaded windows over the square. A very generous breakfast, with newspapers provided; for dinner try The Griffin, a very short walk away, a bustling (but not cheap) restaurant. The Old House makes a great base in this underserved area - at a very fair price indeed.
