Persimmon Homes


Looking for a new home in Northamptonshire?

Northamptonshire’s first impression is of beautifully kept countryside, historic estates and villages, and thriving farmland.

However, there’s always more than meets the eye in the best sense. A new home in one of its towns adds local amenities, local history and local community to this well-balanced county. From the meandering quiet of the Nene Valley and its riverside walks in the south, to the slow longboats navigating the locks of the historic Grand Union Canal, to the world-famous Grand Prix at Silverstone’s circuit track, you can go at your own speed here. Northampton is the county town, with Althorp, one of England’s most famous country house estates, on its doorstep.  The main towns of Corby, Daventry, Kettering and Wellingborough have grown up from market day to modern day, with thriving businesses keeping up the momentum.

Excellent cross-country routes link Northamptonshire to its eight county neighbours. The M1 strikes a direct line through the county, with the M40 brushing past to the south and the A1 to the northeast. A train from Northampton to London Euston will get you there in one easy hour.
