A lovely B&B perfectly situated on the north shore of Rutland Water. Beautiful views across the lake and ideally located to explore the local area. Lakeside is absolutely charming and Rob was a fantastic host who made us feel extremely welcome. Stylish and comfortable en-suite rooms topped with a very tasty breakfast - I can't wait to come back!

The location here is exceptional, matched only by the warmth of the welcome by Rob, the owner. Our en suite room was small but clean and newly carpeted.The bed was comfortable and we were well looked after. Breakfast was fine and the locally cured Rutland trout on scrambled egg, a really special treat. The dining room was also newly carpeted.... More

Rob, the location and the breakfast was lovely. When you get some staff the rest will fall into place. It was right on the cycle track so perfect for our needs. The track is wide and well maintained with lots of refreshment stops and good views.

We had a wonderful time at the lakeside B & B. The location was idyllic, the accommodation homely and cosy and Rob was a fantastic host - not to mention a delicious home-cooked breakfast! I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely come back to visit again in the future.

We stayed here at the weekend and couldn't have been more shocked and disappointed. We booked the 'Lake view' room with the four poster bed. Let's start there. This room was on the ground floor directly off the main thoroughfare and dining room so we were conscious of the noise we made and aware of other noise being made. The... More

I'm sorry that your stay wasn't as we would have hoped. I can understand that 'if something's not right then nothing is' and we apologise for that. The comments on the breakfast may be slightly strong but we take all comments seriously and aim to improve going forward, it seems that our usual high standard wasn't achieved on this occasion....

We stayed at lakeside b and b on Saturday 15th February 2014 as a valentines weekend away for me and my husband. I had booked it as a surprise for him. Once I'd found this lovely place on the Internet, I emailed rob, the owner, and was impressed with his quick responses to my emails and friendly manner. The four... More

Rob does an amazing breakfast and is a thoughtful and warm host. The room was very comfortable and we had a wonderful rest. The location is ideal for the 17 mile walk around Rutland Water and the views are great. Will be back soon.

My husband and I stayed here last September while attending Burghley Horse Trials. Rob is an excellent host, and his breakfasts are hard to beat! You really feel like you are staying at a friend's home due to his warm welcome. We stayed in the Garden Room, which was both comfortable and stylish. The location is lovely and very convenient...

Thank you for a lovely review. It was great to see you last September, during Burghley week it's like a lovely house party atmosphere. Have a super time this year and hopefully we'll see you again soon. We are very close to Stamford and Oakham yet 'hidden away' on the water's edge. It's January 2014 as I write this and... More

I wanted to treat my husband to a relaxing break as part of our 30th wedding anniversary. Lakeside B&B did just that. We had a lovely cosy room which was spotlessly clean. A great British cooked breakfast the following morning and wonderful views. We will definitely be returning and next time I want the room with the four poster bed... More

Our second stay at Rob's very comfortable B&B did not disappoint. Five amazing breakfasts later and I think we'd both put on half a stone at least... A start to the day that lasted well into the afternoon. The house is perfectly located both for keen fishermen and those wanting to explore Rutland and further afield. We were going to... More

Thanks for the great review :) I'll have to cook you an even better breakfast next year! Our speciality is the 'Barnsdale Breakfast' caught and cold cure, oak smoked by my own fair hand! With our own free range scrambled eggs...delicious ! Plus some rather special Marmalades home made in the neighbouring county of Northamptonshire. How about the 'Cuban Breakfast'... More
