A cottage holiday stay in Northamptonshire give you the perfect opportunity to enjoy an action-packed break where you could try white water rafting and motor racing one day, and tank-driving the next. But don't worry if you prefer to live life at a slightly slower pace, there are plenty of relaxing ways to while away your days in this scenic area.

The Canal Museum at Stoke Bruerne is a leisurely way to spend a lazy, hazy summer day, look around the award-winning museum and then enjoy lunch on the waterfront. If the weather is not on your side why not head over to 78 Derngate; this house was remodelled by the world-famous designer and architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh in his iconic Modernist style.

When you stay in a holiday cottage you have the option of eating out, packing picnics or cooking your own family favourites and when it comes to grocery shopping, Northampton's Market Square hosts one of the longest running markets on record in the UK. There are some stunning historic buildings throughout Northamptonshire that simply shouldn't be missed: Althorp House, Cottesbrooke Hall & Gardens and Delapre Abbey should all be on your list.

Why not book ahead and experience a day's tank-driving at Tanks A Lot, or visit the famous Silverstone Race Course. You could even head down to the Nene Whitewater Centre to try your hand at rafting, canoeing or tubing with trained coaches on hand to help you negotiate the rapids.

For a slightly calmer taste of life by the water, take a walk around Corby Boating Lake, right in the heart of Northampton. You can watch the model boats while the kids tackle the playground, be sure to look out for swans, herons, gulls and even kingfishers.

For walking enthusiasts, there is a huge network of footpaths, byways and bridleways throughout Northamptonshire that allow you to appreciate the area's stunning scenery, from rolling hills and lush woodland, to farmland and moorland, passing through picturesque villages and historic towns. Walking is a wonderful way to discover this diverse landscape of rural scenery, stately homes and castles - you can literally explore at your own pace.

The Stalls Ref: NAC

Set in rolling rural countryside on the borders of Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire, yet only a short drive from the major motorway connections of the M40 (Junctions 10 and 11), The Hayloft and The Stalls (refs NAB & NAC) are adjoining barn conversions which lie on the edge of the Cotswolds. They offer spacious, light and airy holiday accommodation that is still warm, cosy and comfortable with wooden floors and a wood-burning stove. There are numerous established footpaths and bridle paths which criss-cross the area and take guests through some of the most picturesque countryside and landscapes. The nearby village of Aynho is famous for the apricot trees grown on the stone walls of the old houses. The historic market town of Banbury is close by, whilst Deddington (with a monthly farmers’ market), Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour give a more traditional view of the Cotswolds and the chance to stroll along the quaint high streets, stopping at one of the many tea shops and country inns for which the area is famous. Less than 30 minutes away lies Blenheim Palace, in the town of Woodstock, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and home of the Blenheim Horse Trials. In the opposite direction, why not sample Sulgrave Manor (ancestral home of the family of George Washington) or Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit, situated next to a forest - or divert to shop at designer boutiques in the highly acclaimed Bicester Village Outlet Centre. A little farther afield, but still within easy driving distance, lie the university city of Oxford, the ancient town of Warwick, Leamington Spa and the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Commonly referred to as Shakespeare’s Stratford, this is the perfect opportunity to visit many historic attractions including the Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Aynho is an hour’s journey north to Birmingham (with the National Exhibition Centre) or south to London itself. There are excellent fast trains from Banbury or Bicester, or drive via the M40. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile
