Ash and Harvey are amazing hosts! Beyond the accommodations, spending time with them was our favorite part of our time at the Ecton House! The room and bathroom are large. This is more like a bed and breakfast! The continental breakfast was more than a muffin and juice. They prepared eggs, toast, has muffins, different kinds of yoghurts, juices, etc. We visited the cemetery/church in front of the Ecton House and Ash personally showed us the gravestone of Benjamin Franklin's grandfather and grandmother, which was fun! They are amazing hosts. This house is truly a perfect central location! It is about an hour from Cambridge, an hour from Oxford, an hour from London, and an hour from Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's birth and burial place). When we return to England we will be staying here! There's great food places nearby (a couple within yards of the Ecton House and some about 10-15 minutes into Northampton).
