“A Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed in the cottage for 6 weeks fleeing building work in our own home in nearby Stamford. The property was a perfect getaway for us - ideally located in the pretty village of Ketton which is no more than a 10 minute drive into Stamford and providing all home comforts.
The cosy sitting room with woodburning stove is ideal for relaxing in the evening and there is an abundance of books, games and DVDs provided for entertainment. The cottage style kitchen is well equipped and on warm evenings we sat in the garden. As the World Cup was on during our stay and the local pub at the end of the lane was broadcasting the matches we sometimes had some noise but never late at night so it wasn't a problem.
We met some of the neighbours who were very friendly and there was never an issue with the parking for the cottage which is very convenient either at the end of the little lane or on Church Street although we rarely needed to do this.
As our stay coincided with the very light evenings and early morning sunrises we would have liked heavier blinds in the bedroom as we were woken very early every morning by the bright sunshine illuminating the room from the double aspect windows. In the sitting room there are shutters but not in the bedrooms so perhaps some blackout blinds would be a good solution.
Apart from this we had an extremely comfortable stay and would definitely recommend the cottage.

“Great stay with 2 small children”

person found this review helpful

Great cottage, beautifully furnished and well equipped for young children with blackout blinds, cots etc.
we stayed with our 2 year old and 4 month old baby over a lovely sunny weekend. Burlurgh house was fantastic - take a swimming costume for your little one so they can splash about in the garden of surprises, and have a picnic in the sculpture garden. A visit to the local farm, and a picnic at Rutland water was also a hit.
It was a shame the local pub had shut down for food, so we stocked up with some meals from the Cook Shop.
Would definitely love to return.

Thank-you very much for you lovely review - I'm really pleased that you liked both the cottage and the area. It's a shame that the Northwick Arms was closed during your visit. I understand it's just been sold and is opening under new ownership - so hopefully it will be up and running again if you do make a return visit. Kind regards, Gillian

“Quintessential country cottage in lovely village location”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We had a lovely weekend at 2 Chapel Lane with our toddler and parents/in-laws. The cottage is extremely well equipped for children, which means you really can pack light. The decor is lovely, and although small, the cottage has everything one could think of to make a comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend!

“Divine little Cottage”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

I can't speak more highly of this lovely cottage. We stayed over the Christmas period and it was a complete delight. Pictures do not do the place justice - it is chic, pretty and cosy. The cottage was spotlessly clean and it has everything that you would need for a home away from home. And the setting in Ketton is wonderful - so quaint and picturesque. The cottage had been decorated for Christmas, which was a lovely touch. I could go on and on but all I really want to say is that I just love this place and that I can't wait to go back.

“perfect for a cozy romantic getaway and close to Stamford!!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 for a stay in November 2011

We stayed here for 2 weeks as we were getting married at the George in Stamford and were not from the area. We needed somewhere close to the town. We had friends and family visit from all over the world.... and all loved this charming little cottage. The kitchen was beautiful and modern yet in keeping with the old charm of the place. We cuddled up by the fire most nights and just enjoyed the relaxing feel =) Arranging our stay was professional and easy and there was even a lovely bottle of bubbly as a congratulations for us getting married. =) (lovely touch =)....
