Sunny days at Daventry Country Park
Grab the kids and pack a picnic: Daventry Country Park promises a great day out for you and the family. This award-winning Green Flag park is set just one mile from Daventry town centre, and boasts a huge reservoir surrounded by woodlands and meadows. Hike or bike the circular trails that run around the reservoir, spend an afternoon orienteering, or head over to the adventure park packed full of zipwires, slides and climbing frames.
Day trips to Northampton
Daventry is an ideal rural escape from urban life, but if you’re craving the vibrancy of a big town, head to Northampton, a 30-minute drive away for a day out. Spend the morning exploring the Gothic splendour of the town’s churches, stop off for lunch at Market Square, and head to the exciting Cultural Quarter for an evening of entertainment.
