About this location
The Rutland region
Stamford is one of Britain's finest conservation stone towns. First time visitors will be taken aback by the towns vast array of medieval and Georgian buildings, which have provided the backdrop for several films and costume dramas including Pride and Prejudice, The Golden Bowl and Middlemarch.
In and around Stamford there are plenty of historic and interesting places to visit including the many ornate churches, Browne's Hospital, St George's Square, St Mary's Street, Barn Hill and High Street St. Martin's.
The town has been named as the best place to live in Britain by The Sunday Times! Reporter Matt Rudd commented in the supplement, titled Best Places to Live in Britain. "Across the green of Stamford's famous water meadows, young families and couples enjoy the day, sipping takeaway coffees from the cosy independent cafes, such as the Fine Food Store, that line the gloriously Georgian high street."
“The town has starred in period dramas from Middlemarch to Pride and Prejudice, just one lucky by-product of Stamford being named Britain's first conservation area. The architecture and honey-stone streets really are magnificent, but that's not all Stamford has to recommend it; this friendly town offers good organic produce as well as designer boutiques.”
There is a broad range of activities available in the area, these include the following:
* Burghley House is an historic Elizabethan House (circa 1587) set amongst the beautiful surroundings of Burghley Park situated on it's outskirts of the town. It features a serpentine park that was designed by Lancelot Brown in 1754, a gothic greenhouse, stables and a picturesque summerhouse beside the scenic lake. The park is also home to the world renowned 3 day event Burghley Horse Trials which brings visitors to the town from around the world.
* Bird watching, sailing, kayaking, wind surfing, fishing and bike hire at Rutland Water.
* Fineshade Woods offers fantastic walks, bike hire and bird watching
* Burghley Golf Course, Greetham Valley, Luffenham Heath, Stapleford Park are all within the nearby vicinity.
* Riverside walks directly from the property as well as many lovely trails and footpaths nearby.
* Horse riding
This is just a flavour of activities - there's so much more, from flower shows to food and craft fairs.........
