Rutland is a glorious county, at its heart, is Rutland Water, the largest inland expanse of water in the UK and offers extensive recreation opportunities from angling, sailing and kayaking to cycling and hiking round the 25 mile perimeter track. The largest towns Oakham and Uppingham offer weekly farmers markets, a good selection independent shops, restaurants and cafes as well as housing two of the top private schools in the UK. Oakham railway station provides links to Leicester, Melton Mowbray, Stamford and Peterborough and there is a good bus network around many of the villages.
Dotted amongst the rolling countryside are attractive villages, many with houses built of the local limestone and topped with a traditional Collyweston roof. Some of the luckiest buyers secure a property overlooking Rutland Water in villages such as Manton, Edith Weston and Hambleton. Popular choices set back from the shores include Easton on-the-Hill, Barrowden and the Luffenhams with the renowned North Luffenheath Golf Course nearby.
There are many large and impressive properties in Rutland; however, they are often accompanied by inflated price tags. Rutland often attracts a premium over and above neighbouring counties such as Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northants, so clients with limited budgets tend to broaden their search to neighbouring counties. Garrington Property search consultants can guide clients with their choice of location, helping to balance the desire to purchase the best possible property with the budget available – and still within easy access of all that Rutland can offer.
