Stamford’s town centre offers an array of independent and high street shops and a fine selection of bars and public houses. The town is bursting with historic buildings and boasts 11 churches. Outside of the town, there are many recreational events for residents and families such as Burghley House and Rutland Water which is great for walking, cycling, sailing, water skiing, climbing and much more. There are also bird watching areas and sections of protected land for conservation of wildlife, red kites and ospreys.
Stamford offers a superb choice of both independent and state schooling. The local Endowed and Independent Schools for Stamford, Kingscliffe , Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle are all highly regarded for education and not just in the local area, but throughout the country. They attract many families to purchase a second property in the area to live in during their children’s time at the schools and families often decide to settle permanently in the area.
One of Stamford’s many draws is how commutable it is to various neighbouring cities and in particular, London. It is situated just 14 miles from Peterborough, 32 miles from Leicester and 41 miles from Nottingham. London is easily commutable by train via Peterborough and the A1 motorway takes motorists directly into London in under an hour and a half.

Areas outside of Stamford, such as Rutland and Oakham are also proving incredibly popular due to high demand and relatively limited supply.
