Castle Farm Guest House is a converted 19th century farmhouse, used as a Bed and Breakfast establishment since September 1982. We are situated at one end of the village of Fotheringhay in our own grounds and offer accommodation for business people, holidaymakers and in fact anyone who is visiting the area and needs a relaxing break.
We have a beautiful, spacious garden with lawns and flower beds that lead down to the River Nene. This is an unfenced area so it is essential that parents watch their children. Access to the garden is through the garden gate at the side of the house.
The bedroom was very spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. There was careful attention to detail and we wanted for nothing. Both the room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. We were served a superb breakfast in the main house, where the atmosphere was homely and friendly.

Fodringeia to Fotheringhay
The first written mention of a settlement here was in 1060, and the Domesday Book lists the site as ‘Fodringeia’. John Leland wrote this as ‘Foderingeye’ or “Fodering inclosure”, referring to the section of the forest that is segregated for the purpose of producing hay. During the medieval period the village was variously mentioned as Foderingey, Foderinghay, Forderinghay, and Fotheringhaye.
