Ah, Stamford. Thought by many to be the ‘finest stone town’, and recognisable to Austen fans as the filming location of Pride and Prejudice, offers a delightful blend of medieval churches, quaint shops, independent pubs, cosy cafes as well as an open-air theatre. It’s no wonder it was voted best place to live by The Sunday Times in 2013. And soon you could call it home too.
Kettering Rd, Stamford, PE9 2LR
In a fantastic location, with easy access to the train station, this superb development of just 48 3 - 6 bedroom homes will be built in local stone, with the highest standard of specification and finish.
Stamford has everything in the way of local amenities, having a good choice of supermarkets and high street shops, as well as plenty of independent boutiques.
Things To Do
Other than the delights of Burghley House, the Rutland Reservoir is certainly worth exploring. Just over the boarder into Cambridge, there are a whole host of towns and villages to discover– like the tiny city of Ely, with its beautiful cathedral and riverside eateries. In the summer months, the Stamford Shakespeare Company stages a season of plays at the Rutland Open Air theatre, the perfect backdrop to immerse yourself in the world of Britain’s most celebrated playwright.
Despite its appealing, otherworldly charm, Stamford is actually very well connected to the rest of the country. Stamford train station is only a short walk away, providing swift journeys to Leicester, Birmingham and Kings Cross, or if you prefer to drive, you can choose from nearby A1, A43, and A47 roads. East Midlands Airport is also just over an hour by car, perfect for short breaks and weekends away.
