Apparently so, according to the Sunday Times â€“ and in fact, itâ€™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 thatâ€™s close to the Cotswolds and just 10 miles south of Shakespeareâ€™s Stratford-upon-Avon. And weâ€™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, thereâ€™s always something to get involved in, and weâ€™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 cafÃ©s, some beautiful picnic spots by the river, and it has a generally nice atmosphere. Weâ€™re biased, of course, but we think itâ€™s a great place to live. And having its very own nursing home simply adds to its offering.
