Wittering is something of a hidden gem, tucked away on the borders of Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire and East Northamptonshire. Served by a dedicated Parish Council, the village prides itself on its strong sense of community. A village hall, bowling green, various sports and social clubs and the stunning Grade I listed All Saints Church all contribute to its appeal, alongside local services and amenities including a cosy pub, fish and chip shop and convenience store. Harriers Rest is also only nine miles from Peterborough, with commuters and visitors to the city able to reach it within 20 minutes. Peterborough provides all the facilities you would expect from a rapidly growing city, including heritage attractions, eclectic retail and restaurant options and plentiful nightlife and entertainment.
Wittering Primary School was rated ‘Good’ during its last OFSTED inspection and is just a short walk from Harriers Rest which makes for a stress-free school run! There are further infant, junior and secondary schools in Stamford including the highly regarded independent Stamford Endowed Schools which span nursery through to sixth form.
Just three miles away is the beautiful Georgian town of Stamford on the River Welland. Frequently used as a location in period films and TV programmes, the town boasts 17th and 18th century stone buildings, older timber-framed structures and medieval churches. Stamford also provides a multitude of shopping, dining and entertainment options, as well as a popular weekly Farmers Market which is held every Friday.
Peterborough and Stamford both provide easy railway access to other major cities including London, Cambridge and Birmingham, making Harriers Rest an attractive proposition for commuters.
