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.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

Even in November when the weather changed this 4 day stay was brilliant. Good venue from which to tour Rutland Water and the lovely surrounding area. The garden was absolutely lovely to stroll around and travelling with 2 dogs the freedom to exercise (with respect for the livestock) was an absolute blessing. The nearby Local Pub was faultless for good food at good prices. I would fully recommend this venue as the lady was so helpful and friendly to chat too. D.V.James

Wonderfully relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely quite homely apartment with uninterrupted views of the countryside from every window. My wife and I felt thoroughly revived after a week here. There is plenty to see and do around Rutland. We recommend Caroline's place if you want a real wind down from the rigours of everyday life.

Valley View apartment Sep16

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation, we booked the Valley View apartment as it was described as having stunning views. This was true, overlooking the gardens and away into the distance past the horses and sheep we saw some beautiful sunsets.

We were a little concerned that being in the top apartment would involve many steps to climb but this was not the case as the driveway is on split levels, so not much difficulty taking in luggage.

Ideal location for visiting Rutland Water, Stamford, Peterborough, Leicester etc.

After visiting Rutland Water and paying the car park charges there, we recommend a few miles south visiting a place called Stoke Dry next to

Eyebrook Reservoir, so peaceful and tranquil and free to park. Just imagine when the Dambusters Lancaster bombers did their practicing there!

All in all a great holiday, great accommodation, friendly host etc. would highly recommend.

Lovely location if you want peace and quiet

  • 3 of 5

Stayed for one week and immediately felt welcome. Apartment is rather small but views are tremendous. Amazing garden which you are free to explore or just to sit quietly contemplating nature. Very close to Rutland Water and Oakham where there are plenty of places to eat, however village pub is excellent. Perhaps the only negative would be that although provided with most facilities eg microwave,washing machine, felt some of the smaller kitchen equipment needs replacing as showing signs of wear.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that on the whole you found your visit satisfactory but was disappointed about your remarks concerning the kitchen equipment. I ALWAYS ask departing guest "was everything alright, and is there anything I need to know?"..................and you never said anything! Kerry and I have been up there this morning inspecting the equipment and could find nothing that appeared to warrant such dissatisfaction, 3 stars seems harsh, might you consider changing it to 4?

Brilliant!!! Could not have asked for more!!

  • 5 of 5

A very warm and comfortable apartment with panoramic views of rolling English countryside. The owner Caroline was communicative, helpful and attentive. The kitchen was well equipped and the apartment was immaculately clean and well presented throughout. Manton Lodge is very close walking distance to an award winning local pub and a very short journey to Rutland Water reservoir, Normanton, and the picturesque towns of Uppingham and Oakham. If the weather were to let you down there is a very comfortable sitting/dining area with a well stocked collection of books/novels which almost anyone could find something of interest from!

I would recommend the area and definitely Manton Lodge as an excellent place to stay!!

Ideal location for Rutland Water.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Valley View apartment for a long weekend at the beginning of August 2015. The accommodation was absolutely ideal for what we wanted and lived up to the description in every way. We prefer to self cater/ eat out and the galley kitchen is very well equipped. We were only a10 minute ride away from Uppingham and the local pub is within easy walking distance.Comfortable sitting area and wonderful views. We took advantage of relaxing in the garden after a day exploring Rutland Water and watching the ospreys.
