Farmhouse
Manton Lodge Farm is a beautifully-positioned 18th-century stone farmhouse set in more than 100-acres of privately owned rolling grassland in rural Rutland. It nestles in a fold in the landscape and boasts far-reaching views across the Chater valley. The property lies on the edge of Manton village and is a short distance from Rutland Water (1km). We offer two comfortable and modernized apartments. Each is completely self-contained, can be set up with single beds or as a super-king double, and is accessed via a separate entrance at the side of the property. The Garden Apartment is located on the ground floor of the modern southern wing of the house, overlooking the garden, and has direct access to the terrace via a French door in the bedroom.

It nestles in a fold in the landscape and boasts far-reaching views across the Chater valley. The property lies on the edge of Manton village and is a short distance from Rutland Water (1km). We offer two comfortable and modernized apartments. Each is completely self-contained, can be set up with single beds or as a super-king double, and is accessed via a separate entrance at the side of the property. The Garden Apartment is located on the ground floor of the modern southern wing of the house, overlooking the garden, and has direct access to the terrace via a French door in the bedroom. It is accessed by a separate entrance at the side of the property. The accommodation comprises: a light and airy Double Master bedroom (available with either super-king double or twin bed set-up) with flat-screen TV; Kitchen-Diner with fully equipped kitchen including four-ring electric hob; microwave, fridge, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, armchairs, dining table and dining chairs; large modern en-suite bathroom with bath and over-bath shower. The Master bedroom has a French door opening directly onto a delightful stone terrace with seating area overlooking the garden and with wide views of the Chater Valley beyond. It is centrally heated throughout. The Valley View Apartment is located on the first floor of the modern southern wing of the house, overlooking the garden, and has unrivalled views. It is accessed by a separate entrance at the side of the property and offers easy access to the garden. The accommodation comprises: Master Bedroom – available as either a super-king double or with twin beds – with flat-screen TV; open plan ‘Suite’ with sofa-bed (available as a bed for an additional guest) and small dining/seating area; En-suite Bathroom with full bath and over-bath shower; Fully-equipped galley Kitchen with combination microwave oven, fridge, 2-ring electric hob, toaster and kettle; and washing machine. It is centrally heated throughout. Free broadband Wi-Fi is included. The Garden Apartment offers wheelchair access. A wonderful feature is the property’s acclaimed garden. Developed over more than 40 years by the current owners, it is open regularly as part of the National Garden Scheme and has been featured in Rutland Pride magazine. It extends to more than an acre of lawns, flowerbeds, York-stone terraces, shrubberies, stepped walkways, and kitchen gardens. Features include specimen trees, stone statues and urns, rose gardens, and an ornamental pond with fountain. With a dazzling array of different blooms it’s a blaze of colour throughout the growing season and of course acts as haven for birdlife. Beyond the gardens the landscape is grass pastureland – filled with lambs in the spring – which rolls away to the little Chater River at the bottom of the valley. Several thousand trees have been planted in the past few decades creating some interesting walks through the various spinneys and copses. The garden is easily accessed from the apartment. For those with longer legs – or a bicycle – Rutland Water is a short distance (1km) away offering a network of trails and a host of other activities and attractions including sailing, fly-fishing, bird-watching etc. The property is within easy walking distance of the Horse & Jockey pub in Manton which serves excellent food and from here you can pick up the trail around the reservoir. Well- behaved dogs may be accommodated on request. More
