Location description from owner

The England 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.
