Simply super!

  • 5 of 5

Great 3 night stay in a truly beautiful cottage. We come from a very busy city so the quiet country location with easy access to both Oakham and Stamford was ideal for us. Really liked the personal touches, Alison had left fresh bread, jam, biscuits and wine on arrival. Highly recommend this cottage to all! Great stay, we will be back, thank you! Rose and Baz

Very high quality

  • 5 of 5

A warm and cosy cottage in an excellent location to explore around Rutland, Oakham, Stamford etc. Very high quality fixtures and fittings. Nice easy location to get to off the A1, but far enough away not to hear the motorway.

Clean and well equipped

  • 3 of 5

The bedroom did not equal the comfort of the ground floor where the very sloping ceiling restricted easy movement. The owners were very pleasant and helpful without being intrusive.
