About The Chester House Estate

The Chester House Estate is a nationally significant heritage site, being one of the few places in the country which can demonstrate over 10,000 years of human activity. On site, the Northamptonshire Archaeological Resource Centre (ARC) is a state-of-the-art facility that acts as the publicly accessible archaeological archive store for the county. They have a research room on-site that can be booked by any who wish to study their collections.

The collections currently consist of over 20,000 boxes of archaeological material from around 3,000 sites across Northamptonshire with space for another 15,000 boxes from future excavations. Enjoy local walks, guided tours, family friendly events and much more on site throughout the year. Come and enjoy coffee and cake at the Farmhouse cafe and you can also spend the night in the Farmhouse Apartment.
