About Clayson Country Homes

Clayson Country Homes has been an established property development company for 50 years. We are a privately owned family business that builds both residential and commercial property across Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties.

For many years we have specialised on sensitive residential conversions and renovations. This includes work on grade II* listed buildings and construction in conservation areas. We have also built many new homes in contemporary and traditional styles, from starter homes and flats through to substantial country houses.

Looking to the future our expanded new homes division is focused on building the next generation of family homes, keeping to our high standards and delivering quality to local communities.


Our Team

Our experienced team of directors have over 100 years of industry experience, ranging from individual privately owned builds to hundreds of homes on national PLC sites. All of our team grew up in Northamptonshire and remain dedicated to building homes that improve the town and surrounding villages.
