We stay each year in week 48 at Barnsdale in one of the Lodges. Having gone for a good five years now, it is something we look forward to - even having been snowed in one year! Wonderful view of Rutland Water - great for Birdwatchjing and great for biking The rooms are generally comfortable Can recoemned it

What an amazing place, fantastic views, fantastic staff, fantastic facilities, and so much to see and do around Rutland Water. Cycle on the lake paths, go on the boat trip, enjoy the hotel facilties. I thoroughly recommend a stay here.

We visited at the end of March, for a one week timeshare exchange to a double A frame lodge (no.20). It was a simple checking in process and the staff were helpful and courteous. We had a great time here, all 6 of us, with plenty of room for everyone. The lodge was extremely clean with everything provided, with lovely... More

This review is of the leisure pool. I have been many times with my children and as a couple. There are many stairs to negotiate to even get to the pool area. There is only ever 1 jacuzzi working, the changing rooms are small and inadequate. The area around the pool is dirty, full of hair and broken pieces of... More

Barnsdale Country Club and Hall is a large country mansion overlooking Rutland Water (a large lake). The reception desk and some rooms are in the main, picturesque hall. Here, and in the restaurant, are the only places with internet access. There are also several A-frame cottages on the property overlooking the lake. The grounds were beautiful and well kept, our...

Location great, lodge lovely (fantastic view), facilities good. Losing our arrival night and departing night's sleep was disappointing. Very noisy due to Weddings directly behind our lodge (shouting /music / cheering etc..). Not being a killjoy as we all enjoy a good Wedding, however I think the 10am checkout was a joke, when we have been kept awake until the... More

My first ever 1 star review. And Barnsdale really should have achieved 5 stars. It's a great location, good views, lovely parkland and spa/sports facilities. The apartment we had in the main building was large, really well furnished and clean. But the management and operation of the Country Club ruins this. There were two major areas of problems on our...

We also were in Unit 49 with a private Balcony giving a view over the grounds and in the distance Rutland water. I had been a bit apprehensive about sleeping in a bedroom with a Velux window (childhood memories of badly fitting curtains and lack of sound proofing). Once I pulled the fitted blind down on the window, hardly any... More
