About this listing

The Painted House is right in the heart of Stamford. Lovingly restored, this quaint grade two listed town house built in 1663 is steeped in history with lots of original features.

The front door and rear window date back to the 12th Century, a Norman arch originally believed to be part of Austin Friars Monastery brought down in the reformation. The house has been documented as belonging to a painter.

Other Things to Note

This is our holiday home for the part of the year so the cupboards will have some basic items that you as guests can use – foods, cooking oils, cleaning products etc etc… There some cupboards locked and not useable but there will also be plenty of storage for you. 
The Painted House is in a Residential area so it is a necessity that you respect our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum at night. No loud music or noises after 11pm. Absolutely no smoking in The Painted House.
