Lets move to Oakham Rutland?
Here’s an article from the Guardian at the weekend about Oakham, which is worth a read!
It’s just the place for beer, beef, bread and birds
What’s going for it? The time comes in a person’s life when one starts to appreciate a place like Oakham. This is not somewhere to waste on twentysomethings or teenagers, who know little of the delights that lie within a historic market town. Boarders at its illustrious private school must be just that: bored. But when you hit 42… Oh, boy! Watch out, Oakham! Just hold us back! This town is manna for the middle-aged, for that time when experience has taught you that life doesn’t get better than an artisan-made sourdough loaf from Hambleton Bakery. Who needs ketamine?
Oakham is full of the little pleasures of life. A nice pint, perhaps, from the Grainstore Brewery? A walk in the undemanding hills of its hinterland to convince yourself you’re doing exercise (well, you know, bad lower back and all that). A farmers’ market, naturally. A nice collection of historic architecture and antiques shops on which your connoisseur’s eye can fall. A chat to select just the right rib of beef with a choice of three – three! – butchers. I know, your cup overrunneth. But to cap it all, are you a twitcher, sir/madam? Then behold Rutland Water, whose annual Birdfair festival was once described by this fair paper as the “birdwatcher’s Glastonbury”.
If you are looking to visit Oakham, then why not stay at Puddle Cottage? The cottage is just 8 miles from Oakham on the South shore of Rutland Water in the charming village of Edih Weston. The cottage is just a short walk to the South shore of the big ‘Puddle’ Rutland Water including Rutland Water Sailing Club, Rutland Water Fishing Lodge and Normanton Church. The 4 star self catering cottage has 1 bedroom which can sleep 2 people in either a super king sized bed or two full size single beds. The cottage has been recently refurbished and includes modern features such as a large flat screen TV with Freeview, a dishwasher and WIFI which is available for guests to use free of charge. However the cottage has maintained its original charm with features such as exposed beams and stonework and a real log fire.
