“Very restful and friendly stay”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Just returned from a short (1 night stay) in the B&B which was excellent. The room and en suite were very clean and a good size, the guest lounge / dining room were beautifully appointed. We had a very short walk into the village pub - good food and locally brewed real ales. We'd never been to Rutland before but were bowled over by some of the stunning villages and towns.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Wifey and I have just had the most wonderful stay at Broccoli Bottom. We
stayed with friends in Carrot Cottage, two beautiful bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a large lounge/dining area. Everything was spotless and very well maintained. Sally and Colin the B and B owners made us all very welcome, even inviting us for afternoon tea and a piece of home made sponge cake. That was after a tour of the other rooms and cottages that were able to be viewed due to other guests staying. All of the rooms and cottages were of a very high standard. So when you do book to stay you will have a problem!! Which one do I choose!
We will be returning very soon for another stay at Broccoli Bottom.

Thanks to Sally and Colin for a most enjoyable weekend.

P.S. Sally loved the joke about the Donkey!!!!

We have recently returned from a fabulous stay at Broccoli Bottom. We stayed in the main property in the double room and it was perfect. The bed was super comfortable ensuring a great nights sleep with the added benefit of a beautiful and spacious en-suite bathroom. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and we couldn't fault a thing.

What sets Broccoli Bottom apart though are Sally & Colin, your amazing hosts. They take hospitality to a whole new level and work tirelessly to make sure their guests are welcomed and are looked after. They are such lovely people who made us feel incredibly welcome.

You will not regret a stay here. The main property is beautiful, as are all the cottages too and it is all situated in a stunning location. Broccoli Bottom is an amazing place for a relaxing getaway that will most certainly leave you wanting to return - I know we'll be back.

Thank you Sally & Colin and see you again soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Broccoli bottom! staying in two of the cottages, Beetroot Barn and Lettuce Lodge. Four adults, three kids and a dog! The cottages were well appointed including a dishwasher! Which was a pleasant surprise. Our hosts were most helpful, lending us maps for local walks that were child friendly and tips on places to eat.
Really lovely area close to everything you would need, without being too close! Take a torch if you go in winter months though - although there is very little traffic - there were puddles and the kids found this to just added to the excitement and fun.

My husband and I stayed here for a night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was lovely. Sally and Colin, the owners, were amazingly friendly, Colin even gave us a lift to the restaurant we had booked after we found out it was a two mile walk. We stayed in the holiday cottage as the B&B was full, it was very comfortable, spacious and lovely and warm and in fact the cleanest B&B/Hotel room I have ever stayed in. The breakfast was really delicious and very well cooked. I really cant praise this place enough, we will definitely be going back and for longer next time!

A big group of us stayed in the self catering cottages, which were all amazing, the owners were very helpful and welcoming. It was a perfect location and child friendly. We would certainly reccomend the cottages for large groups of people.

We stayed here during horse trials. It is the friendliest B&B we have been to in the UK. Would stay again anytime and highly recommend.
It is just at end of the village so there is a nice little walk to local pub for dinner.
Sally and her husband are extremely welcoming.
The bedrooms are tidy and clean and breakfast was great too.
We stayed in the main house but the little annex house also looked very nice. Maybe next time ;)
