We welcome all guests, including singles, couples, families and friends. We are also dog friendly. The cottage includes an open plan kitchen/diner and lounge, a downstairs shower room/cloakroom, two bedrooms (one double, one twin), an upstairs cloakroom and an outside seating area. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, electric oven and hob. The cottage also benefits from a washing machine and tumble dryer (a highchair, stair gate and travel cot are available on request). Don’t worry about packing the cooking essentials, as you will find the kitchen is well equipped for self catering. The interior has been refurbished and decorated to a high standard whilst maintaining its distinct character, with solid oak doors and stairs, gas central heating throughout and contemporary lighting. The original oak block flooring and stone fireplace which now features a log burner, have also been carefully restored. In the winter evenings, you can snuggle up on the comfy sofas, in front of the newly installed log burner to chat and relax, listen to music or watch television. There are also games to play and books to read. Outside there is a fully enclosed sun trap with table and chairs, wall hanging planters and kitchen herbs. Enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner out here in the summer months.More

About the neighbourhood
Rutland has a rich heritage with a wide range of things to do and places to see. From sports to Shakespeare, and from fairs to festivals, there is something for everyone whatever the time of year. Rutland Water, a short walk away from the cottage, is the largest man-made lake in Europe. It is home to many popular activities including bird-watching, fly fishing, sailing and cycling. Among the long list of further attractions is the magnificent Burghley House, home to the world famous Horse Trials, which is located just 6 miles away from the cottage. In addition, the glorious Georgian town of Stamford, Barnsdale Gardens created by the late Geoff Hamilton, Harringworth Viaduct, and Woolsthorpe Manor are all must see destinations.
Getting around
Whilst there is a rural bus service available, and good train stations in the nearby towns of Stamford and Oakham, a car is recommended to be able to easily access the full range of what the area has to offer. A useful visitor centre is on hand at the nearby Rutland Water site of Sykes Lane, at only a 15 minute walk from the cottage. There is an abundance of visitor information in the cottage about Rutland and its amenities and attractions, as well as the four surrounding counties of Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire.
