We’ll tailor your weekend as you like it.

You can pick and choose the treatments that you want to enjoy from their comprehensive list – just take a look at their website.

Upgraded en-suite bathrooms

Since we moved our boutique guest accommodation from The Old House in the Market Square, to a little lane tucked just behind  – at No.1 Hind Stile, we have always been concerned that our bathrooms did not live up to the standard that we set out to deliver to our guests.

While we have been closed for the past few months, we have taken the opportunity to upgrade both bedrooms with brand new en-suite bathrooms.


In the Pytchley Room (the one with the four-poster bed), you can now access straight through to your own bathroom, with a tub and overhead rain shower and hand-held wand. The bath is perfect for a long hot soak, and if you’re in a bit of a hurry in the morning, the shower is great for a fresh start.

The Oakley Room (the other one!), now has a much larger bathroom. The Albion rolltop bath is so comfortable for a bit of pampering and relaxing with your favourite potions and lotions, and the overhead rain shower and hand-held wand gives you a good drench to start the day.

Hooray!

After almost four months of the weirdest experience the world has seen, we are delighted to say that we are now able to re-open No.1 Hind Stile Boutique Guest Accommodation in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire and at Mistletoe Cottage in Kinnersley, Herefordshire.

As always, our guests at No.1 Hind Stile will be welcomed in our usual style from Saturday 11th July. Behind the scenes, we are once again cooking on an Aga cooker and are ready to deliver our famous breakfasts. 

Both our bedrooms now have brand new en-suite bathrooms. The large Albion bath in the Oakley suite is perfect for a long soak, and a relaxing pampering session after a long day. If you’d like a quick shower in the morning, there’s plenty of space. You don’t have to go far to the bathroom in the Pytchley room now – all en-suite with a deep tub and overhead rain shower. Halfiti is made by Penhaligons and the toiletries have a unique scent that offer a little mystique.With our fluffy towels, we’d love you to feel as though you are very comfortable and relaxed in your bathroom.

The Sitting Room at the front of the house is reserved exclusively for our guests, to read, enjoy a chat, sip a coffee or a drink – just somewhere to chill that is not your bedroom.

Back in the bedroom, our usual selection of antiques, classic pictures and comfortable beds, where we invite you to climb in for a good night’s sleep under luxurious bed linens.


At Mistletoe Cottage, it’s all been very quiet in the heart of the county, and we are delighted to re-open on Saturday 11thJuly. Many of our customers who could not take their holidays between March and July have deferred their dates and have booked for later in 2020, and some into 2021 – Thank you very much!

There are still some weeks left, and rather than have all that hassle travelling abroad, get the family and a suitcase or two into the car, and head off to Herefordshire. Read through our website, and you’ll see there’s plenty to do for people with all preferences. Check our partners’ websites (www.EatSleepLiveHerefordshire.co.uk ), and they will offer many, many more ideas for things to do while you are away from home.While we’ve been closed, we have added some great new comfortable outside furniture (picture), so keep your fingers crossed for some lovely warm summer weather, so you can enjoy the life as you relax outdoors.

Come and create a Christmas Wreath in Higham Ferrers

We’ve only just got over a very weird Springtime, but already, people are thinking about Christmas, and how they can make the most of the festive period with their friends and family that they have missed for a long time.

Here’s an idea to get you into the festive spirit during early December.

Stay for the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December – Team up with another couple and travel to Higham Ferrers – enjoy Saturday looking around Rushden Lakes, Olney or Oundle, and be back at No.1 Hind Stile for 6.00 pm when you will spend a couple of hours making your own festive wreath. 

FM Tents (@fmtents) will host the evening and help you with your creation. Your own design can be personalised – just bring some baubles and accroutrements to add to your wreath. Or, we will have plenty of objects and foliage for you to create your own decoration to take back home. 

There’s space for eight people to make wreaths, so others will join you for this part of the event. Mulled wine and mince pies included!

For other Christmas ideas, Goose & Grey (@goose_and_grey) will be on hand for more gift suggestions and presents to purchase, and when you’ve finished your creation, a quick freshen-up and we will have booked you a restaurant of your choice, to while away the rest of the evening.

Back to No.1 Hind Stile for a peaceful and restful sleep, before waking for our famous Aga breakfast on Sunday morning.

Bed, Breakfast and Wreath Making – £165.00 per couple.

We will happily reserve a restaurant and taxis for you at your expense.

Call us on 01933 314006 to book.

Look out for more weekends coming up – Wedding Experiences, Yoga Weekends, and we’re working with lots of local partners to provide packages for you, our Guests.

After nine years of living at The Old House, in the centre of the Market Square of Higham Ferrers and providing accommodation for over 10,000 guests, we, William and Simon, have decided to embark on a new and exciting venture.

To do this, we have sold The Old House, and moved just 50 yards down the road to No.1 Hind Stile in a quiet and quaint little lane.

From the start of 2020, we are offering exclusive Boutique Accommodation in two individually designed en-suite bedrooms. Alongside the bedrooms, guests will have use of a private sitting room and the breakfast room for those renowned Aga cooked English breakfasts.

After listening to you, our Customers, we have carefully considered what you have told us over the years. Hospitality, Quality and Individuality came foremost and we continue to deliver and improve the experience, and what was asked of us!
And, there’s exciting plans afoot with new ideas later in 2020.

Both bedrooms offer the exotic Penhaligon’s Halfeti toiletries (the scent is divine!), Lavazza coffee and tea, TV with Netflix and digital channels, free WiFi and our luxurious cotton bed linens, fluffy towels and Hildon water.

No.1 Hind Stile dates back to 1750 where it has a history of being a grocer’s shop, and more latterly, as a private home for over sixty years. Now, our boutique guest accommodation.

Car Parking for guests is still available free of charge, on the Market Square from 4.30 p.m. until 10.00 a.m. each day and No.1 Hind Stile is just a 2 minute walk away from the Square.

In totting up the last nine years, we thought you might like to share a few facts and figures:

  • 10,771 Guests have slept at the Old House
  • 8,077 Coffees have been brewed
  • 11,816 Cups of Tea poured and served
  • 19,388 Eggs have been cracked! – Poached, fried or scrambled?
  • 18,498 loads of washing and drying…, and ironing!
  • 3 (!) New Washing machines and 2 Tumble Dryers
  • 9,693 Full English breakfasts served
  • 485 Vegetarian breakfasts served
  • 291kg Breakfast Cereals served
  • 1,939 litres of fruit juice poured
  • Do not return Guests – 7. You know who you are!!

More information is available on our new website – www.no1hindstile.co.uk and you can book a room via the website, or by using the same phone numbers as before – 01933 314006 and 07749 489271.

We very much look forward to seeing you and welcoming you to our new house at No.1 Hind Stile.
William, Simon, Dolly and Arthur!

Mistletoe Cottage Shepherds Hut Email

The hut is available to guests who have booked the house for a short break, and can be used for two more people to join them.

Maybe some friends, perhaps the children, or even the in-laws?

The hut inside provides sleeping for one or two people; there is electricity, a small woodburner, and a table and chairs. There is a kettle to use, and a flask to bring over the milk from the house.

There is a nominal fee of just £10.00 per person per week, but we do ask that you provide your own bedding/sleeping bags and towels, etc., for the people staying in there.

An independent shower and loo are available on the ground floor in the cottage, so guests in the hut can pop across and use the facilities there. And of course, if there’s just two or four people in the cottage, the shepherd’s hut can be used to sit out and enjoy the garden with a drink as you relax during the day and evening.

When it is ready for booking, our website will cover all the details of adding the shepherd’s hut to your stay, and we do hope that you can stay with a little touch of adventure to your week away from home.
