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”.
