“Quintessential Cottage”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A gem of a cottage set in the heart of Rutland countryside. Every amenity was provided. The welcome pack was a warm welcome. The location is excellent for our stay visiting family. We would certainly stay at Autumn Cottage again and totally recommend it.

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Autumn Cottage is the perfect setting for a relaxing break at any time of year but it is particularly cosy and romantic around Christmas. It is very well-equipped and the owners Martin & Julia add additional personal touches to make this property stand out from the norm. Highly recommended!

“Exceptional cottage created with much care and effort”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A very well preserved and renovated thatched cottage in a small quiet village, ideal for a restful holiday. The interior is like a museum with furniture, pottery and fittings taking us back to our childhood years. The kitchen is fully equipped with all utensils clean and wholesome. Bathroom facilities likewise and of a high quality.Very generous welcome pack which was especially appreciated on arrival during a thunder and lightening storm. Local countryside is
a delight to drive around. A delightful place to stay, hopefully we will return.

“Perfect cottage in a beautiful village”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We book at least one UK self-catering holiday every year and this is probably the best we've had so far. From the outside, it's a beautiful Rutland stone thatched cottage in a lovely peaceful village, overlooking fields. It gets better when you step inside and find the comfy, quality furnishings and homely touches that you wouldn't normally find in a holiday cottage. The bed was super and the linens all top-quality, and everything spotlessly clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful and even provided some delicious home-made cake, courtesy of his wife! Also provided was fresh milk, tea, coffee, biscuits and even toiletries should you need them. Rutland is a lovely area that might not be a place you would immediately think of as a holiday destination but it offers some lovely unspoilt countryside and a wealth of things to see and do: walks, wildlife, historic houses, gardens, lovely market towns and picture-postcard villages.

“A gem of a cottage in the crown of Rutland”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A charming cottage in a picturesque area. The owners have gone the extra mile with this cottage which is obviously furnished with great care. There is ample parking on a gravel drive. Having been built in the early 19th century, the doorways and beams are low, which adds to the charm. Just remember to duck if you are tall ! If you are looking for somewhere peaceful and in lovely surroundings ,this is the place for you.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage is very well appointed and the owners have gone the extra mile to make the cottage cosy. Everything you could need in a holiday cottage was there. Very clean and well maintained. With lots of interesting extra things such as old books to peruse.
Preston Village is very quiet and we found lots to do in the surrounding area. Recommend visiting Oakham Castle, Richard III Museum in Leicester, Stamford and Uppingham also very nice.
