Spacious, comfortable accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a real gem. Plenty of space to store all your belongings in kitchen cupboards and wardrobes, something that is lacking in a lot of cottages we have stayed in and very comfortable. Market Overton is a lovely picturesque village and the shop next door and pub on the corner makes it very convenient whether you wish to eat in or out. Easy access to a lot of attractions in the area but a week is really not long enough to see everything.

A great cottage in a pretty setting.

  • 5 of 5

The Old Post Office is a very well equipped, comfortable and extremely clean place to stay. The shop next door was very useful and the Black Bull Pub just around the corner served excellent food. This was a great base for exploring Rutland Water, Oakham, Lincoln, Burghley House and Stamford. Also visited Sandringham in under an hour and a half. We will certainly recommend to family and friends.
