                                                          Have just come back from a week close to Rutland Water and I want to say how delighted we were with our accommodation in the Garden Apartment at Manton Lodge Farm. We were immediately hit by the magnificant views across the valley from the sitting room and bedroom windows and the glorious gardens around the house abundant with spring flowers. The apartment was all we could wish for with a well equipt kitchen and cosy sitting room. The spacious bedroom and bathroom was also a bonus. There are plenty of interesting walks around Rutland Water and if interested in sailing there was plenty going on at the Rutland Sailing Club. Also of great interest were the Barnsdale Gardens where we spent some 4-5 hours. If you like the great outdoors and self catering in a natural country setting do give Manton Lodge a try. You will get a warm welcome.

                                                          A very warm welcome set the tone for the stay. Alex was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was just as described on the website. Very clean and modern, warm and welcoming. The location is ideal for discovering the surrounding area. Alex told us of local inns and places to eat, as well as good places to visit. Wouldn't hesitate recommending the cottage.
