The Property

Grantham 5 miles. A unique, oak-clad studio apartment on the first floor of a superb barn conversion amongst open countryside, adjacent to the owners’ home and next to a working arable farm, near the small hamlet of Croxton Kerrial, five miles from Grantham. With a traditional pantile roof, this Grade II listed cottage apartment is the perfect, rural romantic retreat in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, with plenty of walking opportunities and history to be found within easy reach. Cyclists are spoilt here, with undulating areas around Belvoir Castle and more level areas to the south down to Rutland Water. Off-road mountain biking is also well catered for, as the cottage is literally right on the Viking Way. Tastefully renovated to a high standard, this apartment near Grantham has fine, open panoramic views across the surrounding farmland, providing a peaceful and tranquil setting for a hideaway holiday. The spacious open plan living area boasts a super king-size, sumptuous bed and a comfortable sitting area with a modern, thoughtfully-designed kitchen and dining area. A contemporary, luxurious shower room leads from the living room, whilst outside is a small, private sunny rear patio to relax and unwind in following a day’s exploration. From this Grantham apartment, there are numerous walking and cycling paths and a few minutes’ drive brings you into the market town, where there is a wide choice of independent shops, restaurants, tea rooms and pubs. The nearby National Trust property of Belton House is well worth a visit, plus be sure to take a trip to the grand Belvoir Castle and its delightful gardens.
