About Jennifer

I am a farmers wife and I help my husband with the daily running of the farm as well as running Moo Cow Cottage holiday cottage.

I personally prepare the cottage before the guests come and try to leave it suitable for every guests needs.

All my guests will receive some of my home baking on arrival and I like to call over to say hello and give a quick description of the workings of the cottage before leaving my guests to settle in.

I am usually available should guests need me for anything.

Jennifer purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Jennifer chose Oakham

This cottage will provide a home from home setting, guest comfort is important to us and we try to accommodate everyone that comes.

It is ideal for bringing the dog along with a large woodland walk at the back of the farm and animals in the surrounding fields.

We also have a large fenced garden with plenty of space for the kids to run around.

The quiet country side is also ideal for a couples getaway, and we also accommodate people who need a longer stay due to work being a distance from home.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Large fenced garden, beautiful countryside with plenty of walking areas.

Open fire in lounge is lovely in the winter months and the patio and barbecue is a great extra in the summer.

Moo Cow Cottage proved ideal for our short autumn stay during which we were able to visit relatives nearby without interrupting their routines, enjoy a return to the countryside I remember from my youth and give our daughters and grandchildren a wonderful day on the Nene Valley Railway - one of several possible outings available from here. Everything was ready for us when we arrived including the delicious home-made chocolate cake. Thank you Jennifer for your warm welcome and readiness to answer any questions. We wholeheartedly recommend the "MCC" as a great place from which to explore Rutland and Lincolnshire.
