    “Pleasantly surprised”

    We booked this last minute (couple of days before we planned to travel) and, with only a small selection of properties available in the area, figured we may have to accept a few concessions. Not so with this lodge. Set in a lovely quiet area just North of the main road traversing the Northern shore line of Rutland Water, the reservoir is a 15 walk from the site - great for a quick dog walk, or a few minutes by car. The lodge was extremely well equipped - a home from home - and very comfortable ...

    We booked this last minute (couple of days before we planned to travel) and, with only a small selection of properties available in the area, figured we may have to accept a few concessions. Not so with this lodge. Set in a lovely quiet area just North of the main road traversing the Northern shore line of Rutland Water, the reservoir is a 15 walk from the site - great for a quick dog walk, or a few minutes by car. The lodge was extremely well equipped - a home from home - and very comfortable and clean. The photos on the website unfortunately make these lodges look s bit tired (in my opinion) and do not do them justice. Made with ecology in mind, they are very warm and well insulated. Being a lovely summer, the log burner was not required but with this lit, in winter, this would create a lovely cozy atmosphere in the lodge after dark. Rutland Water and neighbouring villages have a lot to offer walkers, cyclists and nature lovers - Ospreys were in the area as we visited. The lodge takes dogs which is a bonus. Thankfully, the hotel also allows dogs in its bar/restaurant and this theme is common throughout the area with many pubs and restaurants also welcoming people with their 4 legged friends. We will most definitely be back to this lovely place.

About the location

EXTON, RUTLAND

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.
