Sticky End is an ideal location for exploring the region including the nearby busy market & impressive public school towns of Oakham and Uppingham, and is only 10 miles from historic Stamford (filming for the 2005 movie Pride & Prejudice and TV's Middlemarch). Rutland is a truly unspoiled rural gem in the heart of Middle England.
Three stunning film locations for the Da Vinci Code movie, Burghley House, Belvoir Castle & Lincoln Cathedral are all within a short drive.
"Multum in Parvo", the motto of the County of Rutland translates from Latin as "Much in Little"... the same is true of Sticky End.
