The Lincolnshire region

Stamford is a small market town on the borders of Lincolnshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. The town was the very first town to be made into a conservation area due to the large number of original stone buildings of architectural interest that it contains.

There is a broad range of activities available in the environs of Stamford. These include the following.

* Burghley House, a fine Elizabethan house, with sculpture gardens and park

* Tolethorpe Hall, home to England's most famous amateur Shakespeare company whose productions are by no

means amateur

* Sailing, kayaking, sail boarding at Rutland Water.

* Woolsthorpe Manor where Sir Isac Newton lived and worked,

* Bike hire and trails at Rutland Water and Fineshade Woods

* Bird watching in Fineshade Woods and Rutland Water

* Fishing at various locations

* Burghley Golf Course 3 miles away and 3 other clubs within the vicinity.

* Riverside walks directly from the property as well as many lovely trails and footpaths nearby.


Stamford was considered by the 18th century antiquary, William Stukeley to be the 'most elegant town upon the great northern road'. Today the town still contains many of the buildings which Stukeley so admired built of local stone from the medieval period onwards.

Stamford provides much interesting material for historians from its site on an important river crossing in prehistoric England, as an important centre of trade in the medieval period, and as a town with many important Georgian buildings of high quality.

The town centre which is within easy walking distance has the following attractions:

* The Stamford Arts Centre with a year round programme of talks, plays, films and activities

* A wide selection of restaurants where you can find different food including, Indian, Chinese, Thai, pizza and fish

and chips.

* Waitrose 5 minutes walk away.

* The Corn Exchange Theatre

* Stamford Bridge Club with duplicate available most days.

* Stamford Bowls Club.

"A characterful flat that is well-appointed, homely and central."

Two of us spent a weekend in Victoria's lovely basement flat, which had both period and modern features. On arrival we received a warm welcome and were in the flat in no time. The flat was cosy without being cramped, consisting of kitchen-diner, toilet, dining room, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. There were milk, tea, coffee and biscuits waiting for us when we entered the property, which is always nice. The kitchen is well-appointed and we used it to cook breakfast as well as a large evening meal. The lounge is very cosy and a great place to relax after a long walk. Being located very near the town centre the flat was easy to find from the train station (even in the rain and dark!) and was very convenient for the local Waitrose. We really liked the layout of the flat as the long hallway made it feel much larger and more rambling that it otherwise could have. The only thing I would change is the square lump in the electric blanket on the bed, they're normally on the side of the mattress. If I visit Stamford again I'll try to stay here.

Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased you had a good time. It was a pleasure to have you and I will look forward to seeing you again.

"A delightful apartment"

I stayed with my son the night before his wedding. The apartment is tastefully decorated and equipped with all the little extras you would need for an extended stay. Victoria was most welcoming and helped with parking which was a bonus. I would thoroughly recommend the apartment for anyone visiting Stamford.

"Another comfortable stay at Rutland Terrace."

This was the second time we have stayed at Rutland Terrace. The flat's location is ideal for visiting Stamford. It's a short walk into town and the proximity to Waitrose is very convenient. The flat is comfortable and well equipped, with a cosy atmosphere. Its basement location was particularly welcome in the recent heatwave as it was beautifully cool.

Thank you for your review. It was lovely to be able to welcome you and your family to stay with us again.

"Great location in Stamford"

It is a basement flat, probably would have been the Housekeeper's room/kitchen in Georgian times! We had no problem with damp or bad smells but it was very good sunny weather and indeed the place was nice and cool for sleeping. If he got a bit chilly the central heating was very quick and powerful as was the shower. Everything was clean and tidy. We found the bed comfortable. I would agree with the previous review about the sofa being a bit uncomfortable but for a couple of nights not too bad. Handy for the centre of town, an easy walk to all the shops/cafes. We managed to park at the front entrance. If that is full the main riverside car park is free and not far away. Unloading the car has to be at the BACK entrance which is a busy road and cases have to be taken down the small garden and down the steep stairs. None of this would prevent us staying again. Stamford is a lovely and interesting town.

Thank you very much for your kind comments. I have taken on board that not everyone finds the sofa comfortable. I am looking for a sofa bed that is more comfortable but so far I have not found one that is more comfortable but have found a lot that are less comfortable, However, the search is on.

"Ideal Escapism"

An excellent, spacious flat with bags of character in a beautiful property offering the privacy and escapism we needed for a weekend away from the city. Perfect for relaxing and quiet breaks away. Fantastic facilities and a large waitrose just a couple of minutes down the road. Would definitely come again.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the quiet location and the character of the property. I look forward to seeing you again.
