                                                        Newly refurbished old barn to an extremely high standard in a great location, just 10 minute walk to the Whitwell's Rutland Water Center. Alex (the owner) made us feel very welcome and was always willing to help. Also a very nice touch of Leaving Milk, Tea and biscuits on arrival for us. Would definitely return again....

                                                        Gorgeous cottage, so homely and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay so much, everything we needed & the log burner was an awesome bonus. Perfect for us all (2 couples, 1 toddler & 2 babies). I couldn't recommend it enough! :-)

                                                        Had a lovely, relaxed new years by the log burner! Well equipped, beautiful property and perfect location with a lovely walk to Rutland Water. Lots of different sports on offer at Rutland Water. Very close to Oakham and Stamford, which are both lovely days out. Warming welcome from Alex. Lots of love and thought has been put into the property. Perfect for a Rutland stay.
