Ketton

Quiet idyll of rural bliss

We love walking around the pretty postcard village of Ketton; people are welcoming to new faces and you feel like you’re wrapped in bubblewrap because it’s safe. It’s an active and vibrant place all year around. During summer weekends there are always events planned by either the local pubs or held at the Ketton sports and community centre. Adults and children are so happy here. Ofsted pronounced Ketton primary school as Outstanding earlier this year, so you are blessed for schooling here. There’s a lovely park with a great playground, with a fenced off area for the smallest kids.

Whether you’re into yoga, tennis, or just strolling we can recommend some kind of physical activity here. Public footpaths in the countryside around cross through the village, and you can adventure to the quarry where you can explore lovely surroundings.

...and friendly vibes!

On a Sunday you can pop to The Collyweston village shop to grab some butcheries produce, decent wine and really fresh fruit…you’ll be in here for a while swooning over the farmers delights. Monday evenings the Morton Fish & Chip van stops in two locations in the village, so everyone looks forward to the start of the week.

If you’re a commuter then you’ll be pleased to hear that a reliable bus service between Stamford and Uppingham passes through the village. Stamford train station is a 10 minute drive away so you can get to Peterborough in no time, and then London in 45 minutes.

  • Closest village/town: This is the perfect village life, however you are super close to Stamford (less than 3 miles).
  • Stores: Fabulous village shop and post office on the high street. They sell the amazing Kings Cliffe bakery bread (although you might have to pre-book to not miss out!) and have a small deli counter with cheese, fresh sausages, ham etc.
  • Pubs: The Railway Inn pub on Church street is a fabulous, friendly and welcoming local (no food) with a lovely garden. They also run a beer delivery system. The Northwick Arms is a pub with a restaurant area further down in the village.
