“Delightful - shame we could stay only one night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were in Rutland for a family wedding and stayed for just one night - 2 of us in the main house and 2 in Lettuce Lodge. Quite honestly one of the best places we've ever stayed - comfortable, clean, everything you could want. Great hosts too, very welcoming without being over the top. We would have no hesitation in recommending and look forward to returning next time we're in the area.

.... it really should be called 'Lettuce Bottom'!

Tucked away on the edge of Manton village in the south west corner of Rutland Lake, it makes for the ideal grown-up get away. With the children safely dispatched to cub camp Broccoli Bottom allows us to slow down and enjoy the pleasures of walking in beautiful country side, having a conversation like you used to and strolling to and from the local village pub which allows you one or two for the road!

We stayed with friends in Fennel Folly for 2 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. There‘s little to fault; it has a quality feel to it done with great taste, comfort and very good value. The owner’s style perfectly complements the places quirky yet calm nature.

Don't take my word for it….

We stayed in Mange Tout Maison for 2 nights (family of 4). The accomodation was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and possibly the most comfortable beds we have ever encountered!! Even our 3 year old said he liked it because of the "comfy beds".
Friendly owners and good location for exploring Rutland. Would recommend highly.

We were looking for a quiet, clean self catering cottage and Brocolli Bottom was just the ticket. Lovely people!

We stayed a weekend in Mange Tout Maison. Excellent accommodation for two couples and dog. Everything we needed was there and the location is great for the local pub and loads of walking! We were well looked after by our hosts. Will definitely go back.
