Description

The Valley View Apartment

1st floor apartment with stunning views and open plan living.


About the property

Manton Lodge Farm

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.

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 private entrance at the side of the property.

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 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 Wi-Fi is included.

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 pasture – 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 and a number of spinneys to stroll around or explore. The garden is easily accessed from the apartment.

For those with longer legs – or a bicycle – Rutland Water is a short distance away offering a network of trails and host of activities. 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.

Beautiful rural location

  • 3 of 5

Small apartment ideal for two in an excellent location. It was ideal for us enabling us to travel to the Burghley Horse Trials with ease every day. Caroline was very welcoming to us and our Jack Russell who got on very well with her own dog.

A lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Manton Lodge where the views are beautiful. We went for our friends' wedding at Hambleton Hall which was lovely. We also had a great time visiting Rutland Water Nature Reserve and seeing the ospreys. Also, enjoyed going to Barnsdale Gardens. Everything was nearby including the local pub which was just a short walk away.

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?
