2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Empingham, Rutland, England
The cottage is in the centre of the village with parking immediately outside. A pub serving hot, home-cooked food is one minutes walk away and open all day. There is also a shop open 7 days a week, a doctors surgery and a hairdressers. Originally a farm building, Primrose Hall was converted in 1860 as a meeting place for The Primrose League, but during the middle of the 20th Century it lapsed into dis-repair. In 2007 the current owners completely renovated it, converting it into the wonderful holiday cottage it is today. Original features remain including an Ancaster Arms Crest imbedded in the stone fireplace, a highly unusual oak block floor in the open plan living area and exposed beams are displayed in every room.<BR>Empingham lies half way inbetween the historic market towns of Stamford and Oakham. The quaint alleyways and hidde... Read more

We couldn't believe it when we walked in to see wine, local beer, fruit, box full of different teas and even an Easter Egg waiting for...

Fabulous location for our short stay over the New Year 2016/17, for us to see friends in a nearby village. We are a family of 5, two adults, two kids and our dog. Primrose Cottage looked perfect for us and we weren't disappointed. The cottage looked lovely in the photos, but it's even better in real life with warm, welcoming,...
