  • "We stayed here for a week, everything was lovely and clean, beautifully presented."

    It was in a lovely secluded spot which provides a relaxing time which is exactly what we needed. Rutland water and Oakham are very close by so plenty of choice to do and there are lots of food options in the local area.

  • "Had a great time here."

    The area is lovely and the lodge was very nice. The only improvement I'd suggest is to have a fence around the property. We booked this as 'dog friendly' but the close proximity to the road, and the gate onto the road as well as to the other properties meant that we couldn't let the dogs out into the garden area and had to keep taking them to the 'paddock' whenever they needed toilet breaks.

  • "Really lovely ‘eco cabin’ - perfect for us (two couples) - well appointed, comfortable, cosy but roomy enough, and good value for money."

    Loads to do in the area.

About the location


  • Stamford 7.8 miles
  • Melton Mowbray 14.4 miles

Exton offers a typical English village setting, with its traditional, stone buildings crowded around the green, in the East Midlands county of Rutland. The Fox and Hounds public house overlooks the tree-planted green, a former 17th century coaching inn, oozing with character, offering cosy winter evenings around the fireplace and lazy summer days out in the beer garden. To the south of the village are Barnsdale Gardens, created by Geoff Hamilton for the BBC's Gardeners' World, and the Barnsdale Hall Hotel and Country Club. Oakham is the nearest town, boasting a combination of stone and thatched buildings, a range of shops, as well as pubs, bars and eateries to choose from. There is also a local history museum, a 12th century castle and a 14th century church. The Rutland Water Nature Reserve offers watersports, a small water adventure park, birdwatching, a sailing club and fishing opportunities, with the Rutland Water Golf Course overlooking the lake. The train station provides access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester with shops to browse and architecture to admire. The market town of Stamford is a mere stone's throw away, with its attractive Georgian-style buildings used in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film, independent shops, cosy pubs and a range of restaurants. Melton Mowbray is further afield, with more amenities to explore. Home to the famous pork pie, this town also offers The Regal Cinema, Melton Theatre and the Melton Carnegie Museum. The village of Exton offers a warm and friendly atmosphere for the perfect holiday exploring the East Midlands.
