Centrally located, in the heart of gorgeous Stamford, this luxury 3 bedroom self-contained apartment, known as 'The Grainstore', comprises the lower 2 floors of 'The Old Granary'. It is the perfect base from which to explore the town. With revealed stonework, and old beams, it is brimming with character. It is also beautifully furnished, and fitted with all mod cons, making a fantastic mix of the old and new!
Arranged over 2 levels, you enter The Grainstore on the ground floor, where you will find the kitchen, living room, utility and WC.
In its own perfectly setup room, you'll also find my 'vintage' Addams Family pinball table! Available for guests to play (I try to leave some credits on it ready, but bring some £1 coins anyway, as you'll get addicted!) it makes a fantastic and unique addition to The Old Granary.
Even if playing pinball isn't your thing, it makes a great talking point / Insta story - please tag us in, as I love to see it being used and enjoyed...

We love spending time in Stamford. It boasts some amazing pubs, independent restaurants and shops, and lots of great eateries, cafes and breakfast options - and is a fantastic place to wander around and soak up the atmosphere and views.
Stamford is also very well known for its stately home neighbour, Burghley House. Home of the globally renowned Burghley Horse Trials, the House also hosts many shows, events, festivals and fairs throughout the year - but even when there's nothing formal happening, it is still an amazing house and grounds to visit.
Stamford is also only a few miles from nearby Rutland Water - so if you're looking for a base to explore both town and countryside, The Old Granary is the perfect place to be...
Guests can safely pull up right outside the front door to load / unload, (the single yellow lines allow for loading / unloading) before moving your car to a more permanent spot.
There are also 'Short Term' / 'Permit Holder' bays along the road outside, in which you can leave your car for up to 2 hours (8am to 6pm). These bays are unrestricted overnight, so you can park there from 6pm until 8am, if you wish.
Longer term parking is available nearby - in Bath Row, Scotgate or Cattlemarket Car Parks. Charges apply (Mon to Sat), but most guests usually forget about their car for the entire stay and explore Stamford on foot.
The largest car park (Cattlemarket) is approx. 5 minutes' walk away. Stamford has a station, which is approx. 8 minutes' walk away.
