The Rutland area is ideal for friends and family to visit, both from the North and South ( I live overseas and was also attending a wedding at Rockingham Castle ). I have stayed in similar cottages 3 times over the last few years, but The Green certainly was above the others. Great attention to detail with the finishing details and I wanted to bring the kitchen back. Feels much more like a home than a holiday rental. Great "welcome pack" upon arrival, including award winning bread.Pat pre booked my "wedding taxi" for me and after a slight mix up with my dates I stayed an extra night. That,s service and flexibility which is becoming rarer these days. This is an area often overlooked in the UK, gentle walks, great pubs, serving delicious food, interesting gardens and both National Trust and English Heritage sites to visit . I will definitely return as there is nothing not to like.

“A dream!”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was beautifully presented, very quaint but with lots of funky colours in the kitchen and well chosen art works on display. The garden was perfect. A table to sit in the sun for breakfast and then another wee one to catch the evening rays. All peaceful and quiet with plenty of birds to spot, including a red kite!
The three bedrooms were very comfy. Great beds. Lots of fresh clean linen and fluffy towels. One bathroom but endless hot water kept three teenagers clean. Good TV and a interesting selection of books and DVDs to browse. A chest full of family games was found too!
A well stocked community shop just a few yards away and a village pub. The Lodge is a local charity for adults with learning difficulties and they have a super cafe.
Met lovely folk at the local free church in the village hall. Gorgeous village to wander round, very pretty with stocks on the green!
Loads to see and do in the area. Oakham lovely but Stamford spectacular! Amazing boutiques and shoe shops, cafes and pubs. Afternoon tea at the George was an elegant highlight.
The owners delightful and left us a thoughtful welcome pack of essentials including the local award wining Hambleton bread. After a quick explanation of bits and pieces they left us to it, no interference or lurking. Easy to find, about 15 mins from A1. So peaceful.
Loved it and hope to go again soon.

“A cosy cottage with excellent facilities”

Three friends and I stayed for 8 nights whilst on a course in Syston. A B&B or hotel would have been a bit grim for this length of time, but the cottage was perfect for us. It's incredibly well equipped, very like a home from home, and very comfortable. It's a quiet location - no noisy traffic to keep you awake or wake you up and so it's very peaceful. There's plenty to do in the local area - walk around the village or further afield around nearby Rutland Water where you can also hire bikes. Thoroughly recommended.

Absolutely lovely cottage. Beautifully maintained and decorated, the cottage had everything you could possibly want! Also a great location, within walking distance of a well stocked local store and a really nice little pub with good food. There were 5 of us there for a long weekend and it really was a perfect weekend. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

“Perfect cottage”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a truly stunning country cottage. It's full of character and beautifully furnished, and has a fantastic rear extension which opens onto a perfect little garden. There's wiFi, a flat-screen TV, plenty of DVDs and books, as well as a box of games. The kitchen is extremely well appointed, with a dishwasher and every kitchen accessory one might need - we counted five pairs of scissors! A carefully balanced mix of old and new, this charming cottage is perfect for a relaxing break. The owners are absolutely delightful too.

The cottage is situated in the tiny village of Market Overton, which is very attractive and has a well-stocked little shop and a good pub.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We recently stayed at the property for 2 weeks whilst my daughter was settling into Oakham School. The facilities were excellent and it is very well equipped. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. In fact, I even managed to leave something behind which they delivered to my daughter at Oakham School after I had returned to New York where I live. The house is situated in a lovely village with an excellent village shop and pub. I can not fault the property. It was excellent.

“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Highly recommended! Beautiful cozy, warm cottage in quiet village. Steps from a great pub with excellent food, and a well-stocked village shop. Short drives to Stamford or Oakham for larger selection of shops/restaurants/things to do.
Very well appointed, including fluffy towels, soft bed linens, every kitchen gadget you can think of, books, DVDs and games.
Owners were gracious and accommodating. Can't wait to visit again!
