Rob is a very genial host at this lovely B and B with a Great Lake view. The lake view room was very comfortable, abundant toiletries in the bathroom and the use of the lounge an added extra. The breakfast area, however is just outside the lake view room. As breakfast is served from 7.30 and if you have opted... More

Thanks for the lovely comments. you make some good points there also. We now have fresh fruit and I'll do the yoghurt option, it'll make a nice option for guests, thanks for the nudge. Sorry about the 7.30 breakfasters, I'll try and keep it quieter, luckily we don't have many early requests. All the best Rob More

My partner and I stayed at the Lakeside in mid October after reading other reviews, and we certainly were not disappointed with our choice. Rob is very friendly and easy going and takes the time to tell you about the local surroundings, which are beautiful and peaceful. Rutland water is on the doorstep and the Lakeside has great views towards... More

The room was very comforatble, the facilities very good and the breakfast was spot on before a days fishing. You are made welcome from the minute you step through... More

Many thanks for those kind words. We welcome everyone to our Lakeside B&B for sailing, fly fishing, walking, cycling and superb bird watching even from the lakeview guest lounge. Also, we're close to Stamford, Uppingham and Oakham. It was great to see you both and hope we can welcome you again soon... the fishing's great at the moment! More

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

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.
