Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in December 2017

Stayed for 3 nights over new year. Small but cosy cottage. Well equipped. Garden area would be good for summer breaks. Parking on street was snug but space is available. Local Blue Ball pub can be recommended.

Management response:

Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review. Marilyn and Richard

The whole experience has been outstanding. The cottage is extremely well equipped with all you would require. A prime location for Rutland water. We said here and used it as a base to visit friends and family within the vicinity. A lovely quaint village with a couple of historical family friendly pubs.

Management response:

Thanks very much, we are pleased you had such a good time.
