About The Old House
Dating back to circa 1580 the house, once a Merchants House who traded in the Medieval Market opposite, has had a variety of uses. Reputed to be a bakery in the town, as well as private accommodation for a number of years, The Old House now offers quality guest accommodation all year round.
Higham Ferrers is a fascinating medieval market town with its 12th Century Church, Chantry Chapel and Bede House; the ruins of Chichele College date back to 1422, and the Square is a collection of buildings, none of which is younger than 250 years. It has the feeling of being a special place.
The town offers a wide range of independent pubs and bars, shops and restaurants. The Old House is in the heart of the town and business clients and tourists alike, you will find a warm welcome and a comfortable room.
We are centrally located for Northampton, Cambridge, Peterborough, Kettering and Milton Keynes
