Brackley has a population of over 14,500 people and serves an additional rural catchment of 10,000 (Brackley Masterplan 2010) and is situated in the south-eastern corner of Northamptonshire. It forms the nucleus of a rural area surrounded by villages of varying sizes and is within easy travelling range of Banbury (10 miles), Northampton (20 miles), Oxford (20 miles) and Milton Keynes (20 miles). The proximity of the M1 and M40 means that access to all parts of the country is fairly straightforward, although neither of the motorways is close enough to be intrusive.

Brackley enjoys an elevated position on the edge of the Cotswolds. Travelling northwards along the A43, you can reach Hazelborough Forest, Silverstone Circuit and Towcester Racecourse all within some 10 miles and in less than a quarter of an hour.
