About Moon Valley Glamping
Suitable ForDogs, large groups, stag and hen groups – yes. Sound systems – no.
The nearest children's play area is in Scaldwell village, a 15-minute walk away, where there are climbing frames and a zip wire. The village of Brixworth, a couple of miles away, is the gateway to Pitsford Water (01604 781350), and it's the best day out in the vicinity, with a seven-mile waterside track to explore, as well as woodland and meadows, watersports, fishing, a nature reserve, children's play areas, picnic spots, and a cafe. Rent a bike from Rutland Cycling (0330 5550080) and you can either tootle around the seven-mile reservoir trail or hit up the 14-mile Brampton Valley Way, which runs between Northampton and Market Harborough.
Otherwise, if you don't want to tackle the 'big city' of Northampton, consider a day out in nearby Kettering, about eight miles away or a 15-minute drive. It's a handsome old market town, with a revitalised shopping scene in The Yards, and a fair few historic attractions in the rolling countryside beyond — like the eye-popping Boughton House (01536 515731), one of the country's grandest stately homes, a sort of English Versailles, with its Baroque staterooms, extensive fine art collection, beautifully landscaped grounds, and rambling country park.
Food & DrinkThe nearest pub is the White Horse (01604 781297) at Old, a 15-minute walk away across the fields, which is fine for a pint in a traditional country inn. Or there's The Swan (01604 696555) at Lamport — a lovely 45-minute cross-country walk — which is a better bet for eating, with a bistro menu, burgers, and steaks. At Brixworth Country Park, not far from Pitsford Water, the Willow Tree Cafe (01604 889343) does all-day breakfasts, baguettes, and burgers — a good pit-stop if you're cycling around the reservoir.
