south of the country and to the national motorway
network while Stamford station offers regular
services to central London in less than 90 minutes.

The range of state schooling in the area is
excellent, including St. Mary and St. John C of E
VA Primary School and Uppingham Community
College. Noteworthy independent schools in the
area include Uppingham, Stamford, Stamford
High School, Oakham, Brooke House and Oundle.
