  • "It was just what we wanted a very quiet area set in lovely countryside."

    Everything about the lodge was great we really enjoyed our break.

  • "The Lodge was very nice and well equipped."

    It was a disappointment to come across things not working - french doors, fan, window latch and lightbulbs. That said when reported they were quickly fixed. The location was ideal but somewhat let down by the background road noise of A606.

  • "Great accommodation, helpful and friendly staff willing to go the extra mile."

    Made our pre Xmas break so relaxing and enjoyable

  • "Lovely peaceful spot."

    Great that the lodges accept dogs. Not only that but lots of pubs and restaurants in the area also take dogs in with paying guests. The lodge was really well equipped - a home from home - and if anything the photographs just do not do this place justice. We were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation and will definitely be back in the future.

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.
