"Discovering the Queens Head Inn was one of the best things we’ve done! We had no idea Northamptonshire and the Nene Valley had so much to offer for a short break and we’ll be going back again soon. The Queens Head has real character, charm and a relaxing feeling. The food, service & bedroom was excellent. Overall, great value for money & we will be back."

Discover the fabulous countryside of Northamptonshire & the Nene Valley

The village has existed since at least Anglo-Saxon times, for an Anglo-Saxon hall was taken over by the Viking king, Cnut the Great, as one of his royal halls. Cnut is known to have visited after 1017, with his court including Aethelric the bishop of Dorchester on Thames. In 1107 Henry I gave the hall and land to the Bishop of Lincoln, Robert Bloet, to endow a prebend.
