The beautiful Georgian town of Stamford is only 5 miles away where you can explore the variety of shops, pubs, and restaurants, and the market too. On the outskirts is the Elizabethan House of Burghley (8 miles) which is open to the public and where the Burghley Horse Trials are held each September. The classic market town of Oakham is 6 miles away in the opposite direction with beautiful buildings, historic sites, and a range of shops and restaurants including a market on a Wednesday and Saturday.

Step down into the lounge with its pretty windows and French doors leading out onto the patio perfect for al fresco dining. The wonderful wooden floors perfectly compliment the character of the cottage, so sink into the comfortable sofas and pop on the TV or lose yourself in a good book. There is a downstairs shower room with a shower and WC.
