Fineshade Abbey Cottages

Here is your opportunity to stay in one of two wings of the magnificent Grade II listed Fineshade Abbey, set three miles from the village of Duddington, near Stamford. The building was originally built as a stable block for a large country house in 1848 and the original bell and clock chime hourly as a reminder of the building's history. These two properties are ideal for a peaceful retreat, as well as a base for exploring the countryside and the local area. Drive up the impressive driveway, alongside a lake and up to the abbey, where you will instantly switch off from the routine of everyday life. Both of these wings sleep four people, but have different layouts with one offering accommodation mostly over one floor, whilst the other is set over two floors. The abbey is set within beautiful parkland on the edge of Fineshade Woods, owned by the Forestry Commission and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although you feel miles from anywhere you are close to excellent road networks and centrally located between Stamford and Rutland Water, as well as being within driving distance of Peterborough. The location offers excellent walking and cycling on your doorstep, whilst watersports are available just a few miles away at Rutland Water, and there are a choice of excellent pubs nearby which can be accessed while exploring the picturesque countryside. For a day out why not travel to Peterborough and visit the cathedral, or spend time exploring Burghley House? There's also a choice of golf courses in area, including Luffenham Heath, Burghley and Stoke Rochford. There really is something for everyone at these two magnificent properties.

The property

Upon stepping into this impressive wing, you will find a fully fitted designer kitchen with a range cooker and a central dining table.

Upstairs leads you straight into the sitting room and along the corridor you come to a double and a twin bedroom, as well as a luxurious bathroom.

Outside is a gravelled area, where you can enjoy a morning coffee, and there's miles of wonderful parkland and walks on your doorstep.

A fence surrounds the property, forming the boundary to a field which in turn leads down to the lake.

A wonderful property for a couple or small family.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 927652, together they sleep 8.
