Stayed for four nights, attending the Birdfair. This B&B is excellent in every respect. Word of warning the "full English" breakfast will keep you going until the evening, but there are alternatives. Rob is both charming and helpful. The location is perfect, and it's easy to travel in all directions. I thoroughly recommend Lakeside B&B, you will enjoy your stay.... More

I booked a room at Lakeside Lodge as the location looked idyllic on the website. My Partner and I were going to an event at Whitwell on 15th August. Rob's Partner was welcoming. The Laurel Room was cosy, the bed was wonderfully comfortable, and the view of the lake from the bathroom was a treat. Rob was a fabulous host,... More

We stayed at this lovely B&B from 20 July to 25 July and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We came here to see the ospreys and also to explore the area and cycle round the lake. The room we had overlooked the garden and it was so peaceful. The room was very comfortable and had a really good shower! There... More

Needing a place to break a longer journey, my wife found this place for a one-night stop over. After a traffic-heavy journey, we were met by Rob, the friendly host (who also does fishing lessons and trips on the Water). The room was nicely laid out (no TV in the room; there is a large guest sitting room with a... More

We stayed a couple of nights here in May 2015. We were given a warm welcome by Rob (who is such a keen fly fisherman that he takes out fishing parties on Rutland Water, has a stained glass window in the front door depicting a fish, and salt & pepper shakers shaped like a fish tail and a fish head,...

Thanks for such a lovely review. I have looked around for 'the perfect sausage' and think I've found it, not too meaty but plump juicy and gently 'herby' as a perfect Lincolnshire sausage. The bacon as you say is also good and doesn't go to nothing. I'm just sorry the eggs are free-range but not our own any more, since... More

We were a party of 4 ladies and this is the second time two of us had visited. Rob is a brilliant host, nothing is too much trouble for him, the location, very quiet and relaxing, is very close to the shore. The beds were very comfortable. The cycle hire centre is nearby and the cycle route around Rutland Water... More

It was a long drive down from Scotland but so well worth it for the hospitality shown by Rob, our host and the comfortable room with a view of the lake. We were having a reunion with friends who we hadn't seen for 10 years since they moved to Australia - there were 7 of us - and we had... More

We arrived from Australia very jet-lagged to find that we had accidentally booked the wrong day. Rob took this in his stride, and very kindly accommodated us anyway. He was very friendly and helpful, and took the time to run out and buy the vegetarians in our group vegetarian sausages for breakfast, as well as accounting for two friends we... More
