The History of Courteenhall


Courteenhall is a long-established, family-owned business based in South Northamptonshire, managing a diverse range of land and property interests. We take pride in our heritage, including the contribution we make to the local community, economy and the environment.

The Wake family has been in South Northamptonshire since the thirteenth century and at Courteenhall since 1672, farming constantly throughout that time.

The original manor house was built in 1572 but, was pulled down and replaced with the current Hall in 1792 by Sir William Wake, the tenth baronet. The Hall is a beautiful Georgian house which has changed little in appearance, retaining almost all its original features. It is home to the Wake family and an exclusive venue for a variety of events.

Surrounding the house is the historic landscaped parkland, designed by the celebrated Humphry Repton, which contains a wealth of wonderful old trees and wildlife.
