Pitsford Hall has a long, storied and fascinating history. Built by Lieutenant-Colonel James Money in 1764, the Hall and grounds are a stunning example of a Georgian country house and sculpted gardens. Due to its proximity to London and the active country life of Northamptonshire, Pitsford Hall has been a popular and prestigious address ever since. 

The 30 acres of grounds are beautifully maintained and carefully curated, the House is stylish, beautiful, and timeless: a hidden delight behind the ancient walls of the estate. In the twentieth century Pitsford Hall belonged to the Drummond family (prosperous bankers whose emblem, the griffin, can be seen around the estate and in the village), who were close friends of the Royal Family, and in the 1930s, Edward VIII and George, Duke of York (later George VI) were regular guests, boasting their own luxury rooms in the Hall for when they visited. As a girl, the future Elizabeth II was also a regular visitor, along with her sister Princess Margaret, worshipping in the beautiful and very close parish church, and learning to ride on the top lawn of Pitsford Hall. 

After World War II, Pitsford Hall was passed on to the Order of the Holy Family of Nazareth, a teaching order of Polish nuns who set up a boarding school which was famous nationwide for educating the children of emigrees. After the order closed their convent, the site then became home to a new institution, Pitsford School, which today is one of the county's leading independent co-educational schools. While retaining the beauty of the grade II listed Hall and similarly listed grounds, the school has tastefully added to the site a modern Junior School and Sports Hall. 

Pitsford Hall is a rare treasure which is bijou, boutique and bucolic, retaining its beauty and charm with the vitality of being a lived-in site.
