  • "This was our second stay at the lodges, having really enjoyed our first stay there last year."

    The location is great for walking and visiting the surrounding villages/area that are lovely. The property had everything we needed and our family loved staying there. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Accommodation was very poorly equipped in both cooking utensils and cleaning materials - for instance no washing up bowl and huge sink."

    Limit on hot water due to the method of heating - very often not enough water for six people to shower during the day let alone fill a sink of washing up water. Due to unenclosed gardens the property could not be described as dog friendly - dog paddocks overgrown and insecure. Waste disposal - a nightmare - no recycling according to the hotel - had to bring our recycling home or take it to the nearest recycling centre. Site not particularly child friendly. Although threatened with charges if we lost or broke anything there was no inventory for us to check what we should have. All in all - not good value for the money charged - would never book onto the site again.

  • "We found Langham to be comfortable, quiet and dog friendly."

    However a number of minor issues arose due to lack of attention to detail eg shortage of toilet tissue, lack of dishcloths, little information with regard to recycling, leaking bath plug (subsequently fixed), only one egg cup, faulty saucepan. Nothing serious but irritating at the time. Aside from these minor points we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

  • "The lodge has so much potential but the cleanliness of it was unacceptable to the point where we had to go off and buy cleaning materials."

    After a long, forced, shutdown due to Covid I would have expected all these lodges to have had an annual Spring clean ready for new summer season. We did get an apology from the hotel, and a bottle of Champagne, but no offer to clean as they seemed far to occupied with the constant wedding parties in the main hotel.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We did offer to go across and clean the property but the lady was very understanding, polite and told us she had done it. We were only made aware after she had cleaned, hence us sending a bottle of champagne across as a small gesture. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and we want every guest to have a lovely stay. Lastly, we did not have any weddings at the hotel during this guest's stay. Property Owner

  • "We were surprised that a more generous welcome pack was not offered, we only had tea and sugar, no coffee or milk."

    In other cottages we have rented all over the country in this price bracket including Air b&b we have been offered a full range of teas and coffees and a pint of milk in the fridge. Likewise toilet roll/ dishwasher tablets all had to be bought during the week. Having said all of this we loved the comfort of the beds and seating in the lounge area. The outside and lovely French doors. There was an offer of a 20%reduction on dinner at the main hotel on the last evening which we took advantage of. We will go back.

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.
