Stacks – Rutland covers the southern part of Lincolnshire predominantly the South Kesteven district covering Grantham, Stamford, Bourne, and Market Deeping.
Stamford, Lincolnshire is very well connected. Just to the north of Peterborough with its excellent rail links to central London, Stamford was voted best place to live in the UK (2013) and little has changed. Developments in Stamford have been very much in keeping with architecture and design and this delightful town offers more than just access to road and rail. Steeped in history and beauty it also offers excellent schools and services.
The George Hotel is possibly the best-known coaching Inn sitting on the old Great North Road. This hotel and restaurant is steeped in over 1000 years of history and if history is not your thing then the dining experience should be.
Burghley House, to the east of Stamford, is a magnificent 16th century country house. Both house and parkland are open to the public. It is home to the annual Burghley Horse Trials and is featured in numerous films.
Grantham lies 22 miles to the north of Stamford on the river Witham. Not to be outdone by its southerly neighbour, Grantham lays claim to England’s oldest Inn, The Angel & Royal. Grantham has excellent mainline rail links to London. Trains take just over an hour to cover the 100 miles to London’s Kings Cross.
Bourne and Market Deeping lie to the East on the edge of the limestone uplands and the edge of the Lincolnshire fens. This is prime agricultural land and the rich dark soil of the fens is a hugely productive area of farmland.
