About our home
Meadow cottage nestles into the beautiful Rutland Countryside within a village with a butchers, a general shop with post office and free cashtil, a church and 2 pubs.
Origionally built in 1844 for the mill workers who worked at the Mill across the lane ( no longer there )
It is two miles from historic Stamford with its old world charm.
Close to Burghley House famous for its horse trials in early September.
Rutland Water with its perimeter cycle track, walking, sailing and bird watching, there is plenty to see and do, or just relax and be calm.
My cottage means the world to me and my ginger terrier, Teddy.
The lounge is open plan with dining area, and woodburner.
There is a double bedroom, a single bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
There is a long garden to the front full of pretty cottage shrubs all year round.
There is an elevated rear garden with herbs, vegetables and fruit bushes.
Due to the steep stairs, I would not recommend it for those with limited mobility, although there is a sofabed in the lounge, the bathroom is upstairs.
There is a BT landline with unlimited calls, and Broadband with good coverage and speed.
I do hope when you read this you will want to come and spend some quality time here as it is very centrally located and only 3 miles from one of the major roads in England the A1.
My neighbours are very friendly as we all love living on this row.
The bus goes from the end of the road into town.
There is a railway station in Stamford and you can catch a train into London taking just over an hour.
Alternatively just walk through the village beside the river gwash which winds its way effortlessly bubbling and gurgling and meandering through field and hedgerow, a natural habitat for so many life forms.
I would describe myself as an altruist and an outdoor adventurer.
I have had plenty of lifes experience as a nurse, a police officer, sometime in the forces, as well as plenty of other worthwhile short term pursuits.
I could never work 9 to 5 in an office.
I have to go out and live life, it doesnt come to you.
Luck, I believe you make this too.
Would I be happy if I won the lottery, probably not, I have everything I could possibly want, including good health.
What makes me tick is the simple things in life, love, giving, receiving and sharing.
