Isham is situated on the A509 road, three miles south of Kettering (administratively it forms part of the borough of Wellingborough) and a mile to the west of Burton Latimer. A bypass west of the village is planned by the county council [ [http://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/Transport/TP/initiative/A509.htm Northamptonshire County Council - A509 Isham Bypass] ] . The River Ise is to the east of the village.

There is a cricket club on the outskirts of the village between Isham and Orlingbury, home of Isham CC [ [http://www.ishamcc.co.uk Isham Cricket Club] ] who play in Div 1 of The Northamptonshire County League. Past players have included Stephen Fleming (NZ Captain), Johan Myburgh (SA Titans).
