                              Excellent location for exploring Uppingham & Rutland. Would recommend boat trip on Rutland water. Welcoming & helpful hosts & loved the cake !! No problems with parking , short stroll to area suggested by Sue & Dave if you don't want to move car. Street parking after 6pm until 10 am outside was helpful . Would recommend & return. Many thanks .

                              A beautiful & relaxing stay

                              Everything was exactly like the pictures. We stayed with our very old dog in tow in the Valley View apartment that definitely lived up to its name, rolling country side views from all the windows and a most spectacular well stocked garden that was a pleasure to stroll around. The apartment was well furnished and very clean. Kitchen was small but functional for a short break, missed not having a full cooker but gave us a good excuse to eat out! The huge comfy bed gave us some good nights sleep too. Lots to do around Rutland and some great walks. Stamford is definitely worth a visit and not far away. Fantastic setting to unwind & relax in, Caroline was a great host and would recommend the place to friends & family. We hope to stay again in the future.
