Latest reviews | Events in Oundle | 10 Places to Stay

The ancient market town of Oundle can be found about 12 mile to the south west of Peterborough. It lies in the central English county of Northamptonshire and is easily accessed via the A605 trunk road. The town nestles in a curve in the River Nene, which consequently almost borders it on three sides. Oundle's history is still very much in evidence due to the survival of many beautiful, historic buildings. Of these buildings, the oldest is the Talbot Hotel. It was originally a timber building, which was rebuilt from stone taken from nearby Fotheringay Castle. This makes for a very picturesque inn but also ensures a further sense of history for the Talbot hotel. Mary Queen of Scots was held at Fotheringay Castle prior to her execution. The staircase that she descended on her way to meet her earthly end was also taken to the Talbot Hotel and today visitors can descend that same staircase. There are marks evident in the stair rail, which are said to have been made by the rings Mary was wearing as she gripped the rail tight on her descent. The Ship Inn is another beautiful old stone building, being originally a 14th century coaching inn. Oundle annually hosts the Oundle International Festival, which is both a music festival and a pipe organ school.
