Features at a glance


An elegant, unlisted, country house with an annexe, extensive gardens, and spectacular views

The property

Haselbech Hill House, in its current form, was built in 1908 for a Mrs Middleton as a hunting lodge. The house, which is unlisted, was purchased by the current owners in 1973 and consists of a formal side, encompassing the principal rooms to the south, and the former staff quarters to the northern wing.

The main entrance hall is to the eastern façade and opens into a larger hall with the staircase rising to the right. To the left is a study with a bay window. Beyond is a reception hall with a pillared ingle fireplace and French doors opening onto the south façade and garden. Leading from this hall are a spacious drawing room and a dining room, both with bay windows. There is also a flower room with a sink and a door leading onto a small courtyard garden.

The principle reception rooms benefit from geometrically panelled moulded ceilings and sycamore parquet flooring. All these rooms, save the dining and flower rooms, have far reaching views to the south. To the rear of the house are the staff quarters, which include the kitchen, a butler’s pantry, house keeper’s sitting room, staff dining room and the former staff kitchen which connects internally to a large garage. In addition, there are two cellars with the main one located beneath the entrance hall and study and this has extensive bays for wine storage.

A staircase with ornate carved barley twist detailing rises to a wide landing with barrelvaulted ceiling and a run of three bedrooms along the southern façade. There are a further eight bedrooms on the first floor as well as two bathrooms, a laundry room, two nursery/day rooms and a separate WC.

On the second floor, there are a further three bedrooms on the southern side, all with French doors opening onto balconies, and a family bathroom. In addition, there are three ‘visiting staff rooms’ and two storerooms. At the north east corner of the property is a four-storey tower, formerly used for water storage.

Rosewood Cottage

Rosewood Cottage is connected to the western side of the main house, although there is no interconnecting door. With a dedicated parking area, the accommodation consists of a breakfast kitchen, living room, dining room, study and cloakroom with a shower. Glazed doors lead to a south-facing garden room. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.


The house is approached from the Cottesbrooke Road along a shared drive. After 500m a gravel drive culminates in a parking area to the east of the house. Woodland surrounds the house on three sides providing privacy. The formal gardens to the south comprise a flagstone terrace, with central steps leading down to a lower paved terrace with borders and further steps down to a lawn and ha-ha. To the west, a small courtyard garden leads from the kitchen to a formal sunken topiary garden with a central fountain.


Haselbech Hill House sits on the outskirts of Haselbech, enveloped within rolling Northamptonshire countryside, eight miles to the north of Northampton. Haselbech is superbly placed to take advantage of the Midlands nexus of transport routes with the A14, A43, M1, M6 and high-speed trains to London available from nearby Northampton, Kettering and Market Harborough.

Haselbech is well served by the neighbouring village of Naseby, some two miles distant, which has a Church, shop, two public houses, a school and community centre. Market Harborough is seven miles to the north providing further shopping and recreational facilities.

The area has numerous excellent schools with preparatory schools at Maidwell Hall, Spratton Hall and Bilton Grange. Secondary schooling is available at Rugby, Uppingham, Oakham, Stamford, Oundle and Northampton. Sporting opportunities in the area include racing at Towcester, Leicester and Huntingdon, golf at Northamptonshire County Golf Club at Church Brampton, Market Harborough, Kettering and Wellingborough. Haselbech Hill House has easy access to popular bridleways for horse riding. Sailing, fly fishing and other water sports are available on the nearby Pitsford Water.


From Market Harborough take the A508 south. Upon reaching the village of Kelmarsh, take a left hand turn, just beyond the village, signposted to Haselbech. Follow this road (Crowthorn Road) for just under a mile to a T junction and turn left along the Maidwell Road which will take you into Haselbech village. As you pass the Hall on your left, and on a right hand bend, take a left signposted to Cottesbrooke. Follow this road out of the village for about half a mile and you will see a driveway on your left hand side, flanked by two red brick thatched gate houses. Follow this drive for approximately 500m until reaching a gravel drive to your right which will take you through the woods to the house.

This property has 13.24 acres of land.
