One-hundred-and-forty years ago, Naseby’s 4000-strong population supported 14 hotels. These days, only two survive: The Ancient Briton and The Royal Hotel, affectionately known by the locals as “the Top Pub” and “the Bottom Pub” respectively.

In addition to “the pubs”, which both include accommodation wings, there is a wide range of accommodation to choose from in the village.

You will  find many homes to rent on the popular holiday house rental websites, bookabach and holidayhouses.
