More Information

The ghost of Mary Queen of Scots is said to haunt the Elizabethan Talbot Hotel. The oak staircase, and other parts of the building, were brought from the ruins of Fotheringhay Castle. It was down these steps that she walked to her execution. If all this sinister historical association puts you off, you needn't worry, Queen Mary hasn't been sighted for over a week now. The hotel boasts oak beams, open fires and transomed windows. The intimate restaurant and cosy bar offer traditional British cuisine, fine wines and real ales. The Talbot has recently been fully refurbished, keeping its charm and character while bringing the facilities up to date, including Wifi. The Talbot has 35 en suite bedrooms including 4 beautiful feature rooms. Oundle is a stone-built town with plenty of Georgian architecture to admire and a 14th century church. Also nearby is Lyveden New Bield, the shell of an unfinished lodge begun in 1595, designed in the shape of a cross. If you're looking for some modern life, Peterborough (and its shopping centre) is just 10 miles away.The hotel now offers free Wi Fi.
