Salcey Forest

Located only 7 miles from the centre of Northampton, Salcey Forest is an Oasis of nature and history.

This magnificent woodland has many miles of ancient wood banks, building remains and ancient trees. The ‘druids’, or veteran oaks, are rare and amazing wildlife habitats, and some of the old oaks are over 600 years old. See what you can spot on your visit to the medieval royal hunting forest.

What’s more, is that Salcey Forest welcomes dogs, so you can bring along your waggy-tailed friend when you stay at our dog friendly hotel in Northampton.
