The charming town of Stamford is positioned in the southern tip of Lincolnshire; it is both beautiful and buzzing. It combines old world charm with modern ‘essentials’. For those living in the town, there are plenty of clubs and recreation facilities such as the Stamford Arts Centre which lays on film and theatre productions, the Stamford Striders running club and Westside Health Club for those keen on fitness, as well as walks through Burghley Park or along the Meadows which bank the Nene River as it ambles through the centre of town.
Stamford has excellent communication links with the A1 passing to the west and a small railway station with links to Oakham, Leicester, Peterborough and London (although most regular commuters choose to drive to Peterborough for more frequent trains). A good bus network radiates out to the villages and local towns.
Stamford town is a popular choice for executives working in Peterborough as there is a good supply of rental property from both private landlords and the Burghley House Estate.
Rutland, to the west of Stamford offers a selection of pretty villages but house prices are generally higher than in the north and east of the town. Popular choices close to Stamford are Easton on-the-hill, Ketton, Belmesthorpe and Uffington. To the east of Stamford Barnack, Bainton and Ufford are also popular villages. Properties to the east can be significantly cheaper than their western neighbours and have quicker access to Peterborough station – an important consideration for those travelling daily.
There is an excellent choice of education establishments in the area, with well-known independent schools found in Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle. Local preparatory schools include Copthill, Witham and Brook Priory. Kirkstone House School in Baston is little known but has strong learning support facilities for children with Dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
