                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We had a long weekend here to recharge our batteries. It was an hour away from Nottingham which is perfect for a short break, a nice change of scenery if you want to go south instead of to the Peak District. Alex was very welcoming and we even got to meet Scampi, their eight months old border terrier (so cute). Being greeted with a little parcel of homemade biscuits after our long bike ride was a lovely gesture and one we thoroughly enjoyed. The Hide was absolutely perfect for us, the bed was big and cosy with a superb outlook over a stream and the shower room was brilliant. An underfloor heated place is one of sheer luxury! The location is close to Rutland Water so is perfect if you want something to occupy you. We did a 24 mile bike ride round the reserve (a ten minute walk to get to Whitwell) and went to the nature reserve the following day. There is a pub within two minutes walking distance and Alex recommended us some great places to eat, we cooked at The Hide though so cannot comment on these places. We love finding new places to stay and this is one we would definitely like to come back to! Rich and Lucy.

                                                        Comfortable spot for a short break

                                                        The cottage was perfect for my short stay to attend a course nearby on the outskirts of Leicester. Lynn was very helpful with the arrangements and the cottage is very well set up with everything you need. I like to cook for myself when away & the kitchen was full of useful equipment. The welcome basket of fruit, milk & local chocolates was very welcome & the bed was comfortable. I had a walk round the village on arrival and it was lovely but due to visiting in January and the attendance times for the course I wasn't able to explore very much in the local area, so I would like to come back at some point and do so. Thanks again.

                                                        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....
