About Martin & Julia Copeman

Having refurbished our original sister Grade II Listed Thatched Cottage, Sticky End, in nearby Cottesmore & taken bookings since 1996, have constantly had excellent feedback from guests & repeat bookings. The same is true of our 'chocolate box' thatched cottage, Little Thatch in nearby Seaton, which we opened in 2013. And now Autumn Cottage completes the portfolio, providing Sticky End and Little Thatch with the perfect sister property!

Martin & Julia Copeman purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Martin & Julia Copeman chose England

Rutland is truly an unspoiled little gem of a county. Multum in Parvo', the apt motto of the County of Rutland translates from Latin as 'Much in Little'... the same is true of all three of our cottage, Autumn Cottage, Sticky End & Little Thatch.

What makes this cottage unique

We have made all our thatched holiday cottages 'extensions of our own home', positioned at the high end of the holiday let market. Guests always comment very positively regarding how extremely well equipped & furnished they are......'more than just a holiday home'.

Perfect cottage, lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet village. It is very well furnished and full of lovely accessories to make you feel at home. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners are really friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with homemade cake! Fresh milk, tea, coffee, biscuits all provided - even toiletries. This area is great and you will not run out of things to see and do.

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well appointed and the owners have gone the extra mile to make the cottage cosy. Everything you could need in a holiday cottage was there. Very clean and well maintained. With lots of interesting extra things such as old books to peruse.

Preston Village is very quiet and we found lots to do in the surrounding area. Recommend visiting Oakham Castle, Richard III Museum in Leicester, Stamford and Uppingham also very nice.

Wow, what a lovely cottage, had everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased that we chose Autumn Cottage to spend three weeks in Rutland. The cottage more than exceeded our expectations. It had everything we needed, beautiful decoration, great views, very convenient location for everywhere in Rutland, surrounding villages, and also Leicestershire. We found Julia and Martin very helpful and easy to deal with, really hope we have the chance to return, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Val and David, Brisbane, Asutralia

Our stunnung stay in Autumn Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Through the years we have stayed in many a lovely home all over Europe, particularly in Britain. We rate Autumn Cottage as certainly one of the best. Of course the county of Rutland and the quaint village of Preston are to a certain extent also responsible for this, but the house itself is in a league of its own. Well-furnished, very comfortable and in everything showing the owners' great sense of detail in making the guests happy.

Highly recommendable and we surely hope to return again in the not too far future!

Autumn Cottage Rutland

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week end break at Autumn Cottage. We wanted somewhere close to home ( within an hour's journey ) and we think we have found the perfect answer.

The owner's instructions on how to get there were clear and detailed; even though we arrived after dark we found it easily. The cottage was every thing it claimed to be; it was warm, very comfortable and extremely well-appointed: clearly the owners had gone out of their way to make it a very welcoming home from home.

As a base it was excellent to explore Rutland. We went to Uppingham and local places on Saturday; on Sunday a little further afield - to Lyveden New Bield ( NT ), a very unusual property and well worth a visit. We know there is much more to see in the area and we will certainly return to Rutland and delightful Autumn Cottage.

RUTLAND & SURROUNDING AREAS

Preston is a charming & tranquil small village with many Grade II Listed properties. It is situated in the East Midlands county of Rutland, a small but beautiful and unsung area just waiting to be discovered (unless of course you are already familiar with its unique charm!). Nestling in Middle England, one hundred miles north of London, Rutland is bounded on the west and north by Leicestershire, northeast by Lincolnshire, and southeast by Northamptonshire.

Ideal for couples and perfect for a romantic escape, this charming Grade II Listed thatched cottage has been lovingly restored and furnished to a very high standard to provide a warm and welcoming holiday or short break retreat. Autumn Cottage is located in the peaceful rural conservation village of Preston, in England's smallest county, Rutland.

Autumn Cottage is an ideal base for exploring the region including the nearby busy market & impressive public school towns of Oakham and Uppingham, and is only 12 miles from historic Stamford (Sunday Times "Best Place to Live in Britain" 2013, filming for the 2005 movie Pride & Prejudice and TV's Middlemarch). Rutland is a truly unspoiled rural gem in the heart of Middle England.

Rutland Water, along with the surrounding countryside and villages, provide a beautiful back drop for sailing, water sports, fishing, cycling, bird watching, golf and walking. Traditional country pubs offer excellent cuisine, stately homes such as Belvoir Castle, magnificent Burghley House (home of the famous Burghley Horse Trials and popular film set) and National Trust properties including Woolsthorpe Manor (Sir Issac Newton's Home) and Belton House at Grantham are within a short drive, whilst shopping tends to be "unique and antique" and a pleasurable world away from the shopping centre chains. Geoff Hamilton's legacy of his famous Barnsdale Gardens are close by, as are Easton Walled Gardens.

The Stamford Shakespeare Festival (2nd June-22nd August 2015 - Henry V ; Romeo & Juliet ; Tom Jones) is held annually at Tolethorpe Hall where a picnic on the lawns, a stroll around the lawn, pond and flowerbeds and shrubberies all add to the magic of a visit to Rutland Open Air Theatre.

Rockingham Motor Speedway and Rockingham Castle lie just 8 minutes drive south. The Stunning Belvoir Castle stands splendidly in the Vale of Belvoir just 40 minutes drive to the north.
