House History

Mears Ashby Hall is a fine example of Jacobean architecture. Built in 1637 and extended in 1859 by the preeminent Victorian achitect Anthony Salvin adding a large drawing room, library and kitchens. In an idyllic setting deep in the Northamptonshire countryside and yet less than 50 minutes by train from London.


Mears Ashby Hall is now the passion project and family home of Clive and Pamela– and they are only too happy to share it with discerning guests and those with something to celebrate.


Pamela and Clive are avid collectors of the unusual and the beautiful from all over the world. They both worked in the fashion industry for many years and bring their love of fashion and art and talent for entertaining to the ethos of Mears Ashby today. That’s why events at Mears Ashby Hall are most memorable.
