There is a downstairs shower and toilet and laundry area to the back of the kitchen. The door to the first floor leads up to master bedroom with king size bed and guest double. The bathroom is situated on the first floor it has an antique bath with shower and is ample room to relax in. On the top floor is another king size bed and the children's room with two singles.

About THE PAINTED HOUSE
this is our family country home we still use today. we grew up in london but as my sisters and I flew the nest my mother decided to move to stamford as she preferred a slower pace. I am an interior designer and have worked in london and Italy creating beautiful homes that reflect the character and style of my clients. I currently work and live in london.

In a great area. Only minutes from the town centre
The bedrooms were lovely and big and the bathroom and kitchen looked as though they were new. The small enclosed garden was great for eating and drinking in. It was a sun trap.
Stamford is a quintessentially English town, steeped in history with Burghley stately home a stones throw from The Painted House, this is a perfect chance to experience English country life. Rutland water is a short drive away, and local towns like Uppingham and Empingham are beautiful to visit and very close. Belvoir castle is another fine example of English architecture with many events going on locally there is always something to do.
