Mears Ashby Hall, Northamptonshire

Londonewcastle were fortunate enough to stay in the beautiful Mears Ashby Hall, located in the countryside of Northamptonshire. 

Ready to meet and greet us at the front door was our butler Martin, who was with us for the rest of our stay and took care of any requests.

After some lunch in the garden we were all ready to get started on some activities. As we were on farmland there was really only one thing we could do – clay pigeon shooting. We all really enjoyed this as some were complete beginners and others had taken part before. We were briefed before and had an [instructor][1] with us the whole time.

Once we had finished our afternoon activity, we headed back in to get ready for the evening ahead. The girls from [Lipstick and Curls][2] arrived to help the ladies with their hair and makeup. Once we felt glamorous enough, the [costumes][3] were on and we headed downstairs to enjoy canapes and a live [Swing band][4].

Dinner was served and was truly delicious – three courses cooked by the fantastic Wowhouse Caterers. Joining us for dinner were [The Murder Experts][5] who put on a murder mystery to remember.

For the rest of the evening we were entertained by the [Twin Swing duo][6], and enjoyed cocktails made by the staff from [Mobar Hire][7].
