Chestnut House is a quintessential English retreat nestled in the picturesque village of Maidford, just a leisurely ten-minute drive from the bustling town of Towcester and the renowned Silverstone racetrack.

Steeped in Georgian charm, Chestnut House exudes elegance and tranquillity, set within the embrace of a classic English five-acre garden. As you approach, the timeless beauty of this Old Rectory captivates, offering a glimpse into a bygone era of grace and refinement.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the stately facade of Chestnut House, its regal presence softened by the gentle rustle of leaves and the sweet scent of blossoms. Adjacent to the main house lies a delightful games room, where spirited bouts of ping pong and pool await, accompanied by the satisfying thud of darts hitting the board.

Whether you seek a peaceful retreat or a lively gathering, Chestnut House accommodates your every need. The entire property ensures utmost privacy and seclusion. The sleeping quarters are thoughtfully distributed across two floors, with two luxurious super king bedrooms boasting ensuite bathrooms, complemented by a charming double and twin bedroom sharing a well-appointed bathroom on the first floor. Ascend to the second floor to discover two additional double bedrooms, each exuding warmth and comfort, alongside a conveniently located bathroom. The house offers flexible arrangements including single Jaybee beds and a cosy double sofa bed for added convenience.

For those seeking leisure and recreation, Chestnut House presents a haven of relaxation. Venture outside to the inviting swimming pool area, complete with sunbeds and plush cushions for indulgent lounging by the heated pool. Al fresco seating beckons, inviting guests to bask in the glorious sunshine and savour the idyllic surroundings.

As the day unfolds, wander through the enchanting garden and discover hidden treasures, from the medieval pond adorned with a charming mini pontoon to the sprawling paddock adorned with majestic chestnut trees. Gaze across the Ha Ha from the comfort of the house, where verdant vistas unfold, inviting moments of reflection and serenity.
