Apparently so, according to the Sunday Times – and in fact, it’s such a great place to live that it has held that crown for two years running! Shipston-on-Stour is a humble Warwickshire market town that’s close to the Cotswolds and just 10 miles south of Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. And we’re proud to call it our home here at Shipston Lodge Nursing Home.

With all sorts of festivals and events put on in the town throughout the year, there’s always something to get involved in, and we’re delighted to be part of this close-knit community. The Wool Fair has been resurrected and takes place every May, and the town stages a two-week Proms festival every summer, featuring all sorts of events including jazz, blues, folk, classical and rock concerts, open-mic nights and a grand finale on a big stage in the town square.

The town has proper pubs, lovely restaurants, a wide variety of great little independent shops and cafés, some beautiful picnic spots by the river, and it has a generally nice atmosphere. We’re biased, of course, but we think it’s a great place to live. And having its very own nursing home simply adds to its offering.
