Rutland and the Shires explained:

Stamford, Lincolnshire is very well connected. Just to the north of Peterborough with excellent rail links to central London, Stamford was voted best place to live in the UK (2013) and very little has changed. Developments in Stamford have been very much in keeping with architecture and design. This delightful town offers more than just access to road and rail. Steeped in history and beauty, it also offers excellent schools and services.
South Lincolnshire, including Grantham, Bourne, and Spalding offer some wonderful opportunities to find a pearl of a property at surprisingly reasonable prices. Commuters are beginning to discover the benefits of this great location. Trains from Grantham take just over one hour to central London.

They are all are easily accessible by road or rail. The towns provide something to satisfy all needs. Are you are looking to downsize to a small market town?

Undulating hills, charming villages, classic English pubs and excellent road and rail links abound. Leicestershire offers a wide range of options regardless of your search criteria.
Cambridgeshire is perhaps less of a secret. Stunning cathedrals in Cambridge and Ely have been used in several film settings. The university of Cambridge boasts some notable alumni.
