“Excellent stay”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Brilliant cottage, with all mod cons, lovely and warm. The power shower is the business!
The landlady left us a welcoming present, eggs etc. The cottage is a few mins away from A1, so great transport links.
We'll definitely stay again if we are in the area.

“Charming well equipped cosy cottage”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Daphne's cottage is tastefully furnished to a high standard . We found it to be well equipped cosy and comfortable. The underfloor heating in the lounge was so efficient that we never lit the wood burner. The beds were comfortable ,the pillows perfect. Excellent roomy shower cubicle with power shower.
The sleepy village of Stretton is just minutes from the A1 , providing good access to Stamford , Oakham and the surrounding areas.
Liz is an excellent host , providing a very generous welcome pack.

“Lovely cottage....ideal location”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the Rutland Water area. Very easy to find from the directions given and well located for getting to the surrounding towns, villages and the Water itself. 2 mins walk from the village pub/restaurant Jackson Stops...well worth a meal there. The cottage was warm, clean and spacious. Comfortable beds and a fantastic shower. Oh and the settees in the living room had recliners...quite useful after a days walking! Would use again if in the area.

“Very comfortable, warm cottage”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a lovely stay in Stretton near Rutland Water. The cottage was spotless and well equipped with modern bathroom and kitchen. To compliment the wood burner in the living room was underfloor heating - very comfy. We would definitely stay again.

“Lovely rural cottage with easy access to Rutland's attractions”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I have just returned from my 1st visit to Daphne's cottage having stayed there for 5 nights with my elderly father. It's a well furnished and equipped cottage attached to the almost self sufficient owners home in a rural location that's within easy reach of many of the attractions in Rutland and the surrounding areas. This makes it a perfect choice for busy days out & relaxing evenings, the patio area catches the evening sunshine beautifully! We received a friendly welcome on arrival and I certainly hope to visit again and will be recommending Daphne's Cottage to friends and family.
