I know my home to be peaceful and calm. The ancient woodland on the doorstep offers a wonderful retreat from the urban environment. To have this peace and yet be 5 minutes away from the centre of town is a real treat. I think the quality of experience lies with the peace that surrounds us.

The space

My house is detached dorma style with one double room to let. It is downstairs with an adjacent bathroom and toilet and upstairs you have the use of a shower and toilet. The house is large and airy with a lovely garden that looks out onto woodlands.
It is generally a space for women guests who can be in a couple but no lone men . Sorry.

The visitor will have use of the large comfortable living room and the friendly rustic kitchen.

I do not rent the space for long term guests. 1 to 4 day visits are best for me.

Whilst staying , you will be provided with a comfortable bed with clean cotton bed linen. Towels will be provided.

Apart from being a comfortable family home it sits next to some ancient woodlands which are truly magical. We are situated in a cul-de-sac which is very peaceful. We have a wood burner that keeps us warm in the winter and creates a homely feel to our space, as well as gas central heating.

We have wi-fi connection.

The town centre is a mile away with a good bus route and a renowned, black cab, taxi service in Corby.The town has a fabulous train station with direct routes to London only one hour away.

I love living here because of the light that comes into the house, and the wonderful forest on my doorstep. You can be in the woods in one minute as there is access to this natural beauty only ten yards away. I think it's a beautiful spot, quiet and within easy reach to the town.

There is a lovely 15 century Pub ten minutes walk away it provides pub grub style food which is good and has a friendly atmosphere.

Corby is a fascinating post industrial town in the middle of rural England with beauty right on our door step. We are a friendly and lively population of around 55 thousand with a new and vibrant incoming community of Eastern European, African and Portuguese people .

My stay at Lorraine's was superb from start to finish and Corby was a total delight. I don't think there is a more positive and friendly place in the UK. Lorraine and her daughter Crystal were both very welcoming and I enjoyed the company and the chats. My room was very comfortable and Lorraine prepared a generous and thoughtful breakfast each morning. I can't reccommend enough.

Really close to where I needed to be for an event. Lorraine was greatly hospitable, the room was lovely and clean and her house a little hidden gem of tranquility and space. I enjoyed our little chats and appreciated the breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay again if in the area.

A wonderful stay in a convenient and tranquil location. The room and bathroom were very clean and I slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed. Lorraine is a very genuine and gracious host and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you. I will return.

I am happy to share my home with guests/visitors to Corby who enjoy a peaceful place to be. I love living here as I can nip into the woods every day and connect with nature and be amazed at the beauty I see. I work as a community photographer using photography and other participatory arts as a therapeutic tool and to help with community development.
I ride a bike as well as drive a wee car, the natural environment is very important to me. I love to sit out in the garden by the open fire watching the stars.
I have travelled worldwide , Kibbutz in Israel, apple picking in NZ, grape picking in France, hitch hiking in Canada and one year in East Africa, before returning to education. My degree is in mass communication and the media although it's all a bit obsolete with the new technology. I like to keep things as simple as possible and am mindful in my every day actions and thoughts not to get too entangled in the 'Shoulds' of others.
Although I have recently visited a rock concert in Rhodes, I increasingly prefer music that is easy on the ear and with words I can relate to.
I am not a big consumer of anything and fresh healthy food is what I enjoy as well as a good red wine and a robust real ale.
Too many life mottos and too glib to write here.
I am friendly but not intrusive. I have a great knowledge of this town, people and history. I was born here although travelled for 10 years to return and make it my home once more. I have two grown up daughters and an angel of a grandaughter!
This evening I will be going out in the middle of the night to find a spot with little light pollution to watch for meteors across the sky.
