Everything you need

A lively town, Wellingborough also has plenty of green space. Plus, the River Nene and its chain of lakes flows to the south of the town, creating a beautiful natural landscape. 

To match the modern living of a new home, the town centre is home to high-street chains, a shopping centre, large supermarkets, and the weekly Whitehorse Yard markets. Slightly out-of-town, you have access to retail parks as well – so there’s something for all the family.

Days out for everyone

Complete with a range of lovely parks – including a free water park – out of town, you’ve got The Stanwick Lakes, Sywell Country Park, Pitsford Water Nature Reserve and Grafham Water – ideal if you love lakeside walks.
