Oakham is one of the best places to retire to, according to a survey by The Daily Telegraph.
The town is in the national newspaper’s top 20 places in the country for people looking to downsize their property in later life.
The report reads: “Rutland is one of smallest counties in Britain but, not being overrun with commuters, offers some of the best value for money for downsizers from Birmingham or London.
“Oakham, the county town, dominated by its 14th-century church spire, is compact but charming, full of quirky buildings.”
