If you’re looking for village life but don’t want to be too far away from Northampton, these are the top five places we’d recommend. All are within 10 miles of the town.


Collingtree is situated just four miles south of Northampton and is an idyllic village. It’s situated near to the M1 and is growing in popularity due to its convenient location. New build developments have been sprouting up without losing the rural feel of the village. Amenities include a golf course, church, gym and pub.

Billing & Billing Park

Billing is situated along the River Nene and offers an abundance of waterside walks. The washland and numerous lakes mean there is plenty for nature-lovers to enjoy. Within easy reach of the A45, it’s an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Northampton, but still just a stone’s throw away.


Abington is a suburb just outside of Northampton’s town centre and is considered a desirable place to live. It is next to the Racecourse Park which stretches over 100 acres. The properties in this area consist of attractive Victorian and Edwardian townhouses that are ideal for families.


The suburb of Delapre is situated near to the University of Northampton and has its own football pitch and golf complex. It even has a nature reserve close to the site of the Battle of Northampton which was a major battle during the War of the Roses. With easy access to the A45, it’s a great location.


The Hunsbury district of Northampton encompasses East and West Hunsbury and Hunsbury Meadows. The suburb features a number of green spaces, including Hunsbury Hill country park and Ladybridge Park. It’s situated very close to the M1, making it an ideal location for commuters.
