Things to do

Get away from it all, with a short break at The Granary Hotel at Fawsley. From relaxing rural breaks, to activity-packed days, nightlife, dining, culture, art, family trips – we have everything you need.

The Granary st Fawsley is perfect for a short break in Northamptonshire. From romantic getaways to sporty weekends, there are activities for all. Here are just a few of the highlights.

Sywell Aviation Museum displays Northamptonshire’s rich aviation heritage. Within the grounds of Sywell Aerodrome, visitors can learn more about the early days of powered flight, Second World War fighter planes, and more.

The world famous Silverstone Circuit, home to the British F1 Grand Prix; whether you are going to watch some world-class driving or try your hand at the wheel with the range of driving experiences available it is a must see for any motorsport fan (P.S. don’t forget to ask our receptionist for details of our back road direct route).

For a spot of retail therapy, head to Bicester Village Outlet Shopping. Or, closer to Fawsley, The Heart of the Shires. Set around a Victorian courtyard, The Heart of the Shires Shopping Village offers a wide range of individual stores, brimming with character. Shoppers can find bargains in jewellery, antiques, and designer clothes.

The medieval market town of Daventry offers a picturesque backdrop for a quiet drink in a quintessentially English pub. For the peckish, there are several timelessly British fish-n-chip shops. And don’t miss out on the rich variety of the heritage attractions that surrounds the Hotel; Althorp House, Blenheim Palace, Broughton Castle, Canons Ashby House and Warwick Castle just to name a few.

Only a little further afield, Northampton features the Academy of Music Theatre – dear to local hearts thanks to its beautiful period styling. Smith College Museum of Art displays striking works of different styles – and is worth visiting for its elegant and contemporary architecture.
