Empingham is a most sought-after village to the north of Rutland Water and is well serviced with a village shop, doctor’s surgery, public house and church. Being 4 miles from the A1, it is well located for access to many commercial centres. The village is served by an hourly bus service to Stamford and Oakham with connections through to Peterborough and Nottingham. The east coast mainline runs through Peterborough, approximately 20 miles away, thus providing easy access to London and the north east.
Take the Stamford Road from Oakham and go over the roundabout taking the sign to the A606. Continue along this road, passing through the village of Whitwell and into Empingham. Take a left hand turn past the public house and into Main Street. Continue on Main Street almost until you are leaving the village and the property can be found on the right-hand side of the road.
