                                                                We had a wonderful time staying a Pibbles Nook. It was extremely comfortable and has been decorated to the highest standard. A great place for a short break in a gorgeous area.

                                                                Quiet, relaxing base to explore the area.

                                                                Property was clean, comfortable,convenient & quiet. A warm welcome with very generous welcome pack. Views from the property encouraged us to relax in the afternoons before a short walk to the pub for pleasant evening meals. Visited Rutland Water, Barnsdale Gardens & Stamford.
