Charming and quaint in lovely village

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Sticky End and it was just as we remembered , cosy and charming with everything needed to make our stay perfect. Martin and Julia were vey helpful and we would definitely recommend Sticky End to others. We visited the local pub and there are such a wide variety of restaurants around that all tastes are catered for and the proximity to Rutland Water is an absolute plus. We will definitely stat at Sticky End again!

A beautifully quaint mini-moon destination.

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week in this beautiful country cottage. Great place for a romantic getaway, my husband and I really enjoyed our trip. Martin and Julia were very helpful and accommodating and even left us a welcome gift of home-made cake and champagne. We would like to add that the pictures do not do the place justice, Sticky End is a lot bigger than the pictures make it look and the place is full of charm - even had a little library! We particularly enjoyed the amazing fireplace.

The most PERFECT cottage ever!

  • 5 out of 5
My mother and I booked Sticky Cottage based solely upon photos that we saw online. We weren't familiar with Cottesmore, although we had read that the Rutland area was lovely. Turned out to be one of the best travel decisions we've made (and Mom and I go to England together annually), as Sticky End did not disappoint! In fact, it far exceeded our expectations, and the website photos do not begin to do this wonderful little thatched cottage justice. From the moment we walked in and were shown around by Martin, we were smitten. Never have we stayed in accommodations where such a high attention to detail was lavished. The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard, but still definitely retains tremendous old-world character. Everywhere you look, there are antiques and interesting, unique items to delight the eye. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we spent much of our time in the cottage just wandering around and gazing at all of the beautiful decorative touches. From the little library stocked with wonderful old books to the upstairs bedroom closet that has been filled to the brim with delightful children's toys, the collection of handmade teddy bears, the amazing old advertising signs in the laundry room, the porcelain and china ... oh my! Perfection! If you've seen the movie "The Holiday" with Kate Winslett and Cameron Diaz and fallen in love with the cottage in that film, you will absolutely love Sticky End. I think it's even better! The cottage is an ideal base for touring Rutland, with parking right outside the courtyard. It's warm, cozy, beautiful ... just an absolute delight, and if I could give this cottage 10 stars, it would still not be enough.

Charming, Quaint, Centrally Located

  • 5 out of 5
Hesitant to write such a glowing review because we don't want to give away our special spot! We always book "our cottage" for Bird Fair in August, and it's a treat to come back every year. Martin & Julia are excellent hosts, they and the cottage are warm and welcoming. The cottage has every convenience. My only complaint is that we hardly have enough free time with working at the Fair to enjoy it all!
