Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in England - Manton Lodge Farm

Garden Room and Valley View apartments in stunning location with gorgeous views

Manton Lodge Farm is a stunningly-positioned 18th-century stone farmhouse set in more than 100-acres of rolling grassland in rural Rutland. It boasts far-reaching views across the sweeping River Chater valley, and is a short distance from Rutland Water.

We offer two modernized one-bedroom apartments: the 'Garden apartment' and the 'Valley View apartment'. Each is completely self-contained with accommodation for two people, set up either with single beds or as a super-king double.

The Garden Room on the ground floor offers kitchen with seating area with armchairs and dining table and chairs and flat screen wall mounted TV, separate bedroom with TV and door that leads out onto terrace, bathroom with over bath shower.

The Valley View apartment on the first floor offers bathroom with over bath shower, galley kitchen which includes microwave, fridge, washing machine, 2 ring hob, small oven, kettle and toaster, this leads into sitting/dining area and an archway that leads to bedroom, this apartment is open plan with stunning views on two sides.

Free Wi-Fi is available in both apartments.

A wonderful feature is the house's acclaimed garden. Created by the current owner, who has been at the property for 35 years, and with an evolving design it boasts a wide variety of plant species and is regularly open to the public. Both apartments overlook the garden and guests are invited to explore its intimate surroundings, or simply sit and look out from the terrace and enjoy the stunning views beyond it of sheep grazing calmly on the landscape

We are within easy walking distance to a popular local pub which does good food, and from here you can also pick up the track which goes all the way round Rutland Water for cycling or walking.

We also take well behaved dogs, please ask owner.

Idyllic spot

  • 5 of 5

A most attractive property with beautiful gardens very close to Rutland Water. The Garden Room was very comfortable and had all we needed. Views are lovely out to fields with sheep. The little terrace off the bedroom is idyllic - perfect for a glass of wine with a view in the evenings. Definitely recommend.

Comfortable week in the Garden Apartment

  • 4 of 5

As we approached the Apartment we could sense the tranquillity of the surrounding area. Everywhere was neat and tidy and suitable, as we had expected for our stay. The garden was awesome; a delight to walk and sit amongst the beautiful blooms. Caroline, the owner was warm and friendly; nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend this apartment to friends or family. We enjoyed Rutland Water; we had a lovely time visiting Oakham, Stamford, Market Harborough and various nature reserves. We enjoyed a meal at The Barn in Oakham; lovely food and good service.

Well worth a stay.

Pretty cottage in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Room is an apt description for this pretty cottage, being surrounded by wonderful gardens and fantastic rural views beyond. We watched new born lambs in the adjoining fields, ponies grazing and wild birds feeding right outside our window.

We were a couple with two dogs and were all made very welcome by Caroline.The cottage is compact, but we had everything we needed and in early spring we were cosy and warm. There are plenty of lovely walks and Rutland Water is within easy access on foot. There are also lots of cycle routes around the water.We can recommend the Horse and Jockey on your way to the shore side - only 5 minutes away.

Further afield Stamford, Burleigh House and Oakham are all well worth visiting.

All in all a five star experience!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Before booking we told the owner, Caroline, what we were looking for. She assured us that we wouldn't be disappointed if we stayed at the Garden Apparment and she was right.

The location is perfect for anyone looking for countryside, walks, cycling and cosy country pubs. The apartment is well away from busy roads, at the end of a quiet cull-de-sac, only a short walk from the village pub. The views from the appartment are beautiful, with a lovely garden to sit in and enjoy them, along with the sounds of birds and sheep.

Cycle hire is available, one being a couple of miles away beside Rutland Water, which has a cycle track almost entirely away from roads.

We'll definitely be back to stay at Caroline's Garden Apartment!

Lovely place to stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rutland. The house is in a beautiful setting with lovely views and the apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We went for a wonderful walk around Rutland water and saw lots of wildlife and went shopping in the local town Oakham which has some great shops and had some lovely pub meals. Very relaxing and peaceful and would definetly recommend it. The owner, who lives in the main house, was very helpful and charming
