THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Oakham

Oakham is the county town of Rutland in the East Midlands, 30 miles south east of Nottingham, 25 miles to the east of Leicester and 23 miles west of Peterborough. Oakham town centre has a thriving community, with plenty of independent shops, cafes and pubs, as well as all the local amenities like supermarkets, banks and pharmacies, and even a butcher's shop. There is a convenient Tesco supermarket only 250m away from the development, ideal for all the essentials.

McCarthy Stone residents will have plenty of choice when it comes to eating out in Oakham, as there is a huge selection of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, from traditional English fayre to Indian, Chinese and America. Oakham Castle is a popular attraction within the town, a rare example of 12th century architecture and sculptures. There's also Rutland County Museum for those interested in local history, and Oakham Library only 0.2 miles from the proposed development. Oakham lies to the west of Rutland Water, which is one of the largest man-made lakes in Europe, and a popular tourist attraction due to the wide variety of wildlife and ecosystems it supports.

The lakes are a conservation area, with plenty of birds, plants, insects and other native species making their homes there. The reserve is located 1.5 miles from the McCarthy Stone development. Oakham train station is only 0.5 miles from the proposed development, which connects to Birmingham and Leicester to the west, and Peterborough to the east. There is also a once-daily service to Bedford, Luton and London St Pancras which passes over the historic Welland Viaduct, so there's plenty of opportunity for days out.

I have worked in the new homes selling industry for 3 years and have recently come into retirement living and I couldn't love it more. I like having the time to spend with customers and helping them on their way to a new and easier lifestyle. It is one of the main reasons I enjoy working for McCarthy Stone.
