I stayed for 5 weeks at this cottage as I was working in the neighbouring town of Oakham. The environment is just stunning. Everyone looking for a quiet spot to do some walking, cycling or visiting of the nearby towns will find this the ideal place to come to rest. Pippa is really welcoming and makes some great cakes. The cottages- I stayed in both of them - are comfortable and well equipped. They are clean and provide you with everything you need. I really liked driving up there every day after work. Coming from Oakham I had to pass Launde abbey which is surrounded by beautiful meadows, where the sheep are grazing. My wife and daughter came over for a visit of two weeks. My 6 year old daughter rode for the first time in her life, a fantastic experience for her. Really a place I would recommend. I will definitely go back.
