  • "On the positive side it’s a quaint quirky cosy charming cottage with creaky floorboards."

    Nicely situated for Rutland Water, Oakham, Stamford, Peterborough and Burley House nearby. and all charming oldie world thatched cottage villages. On the negative side, parking can be a problem at school time with between 100 to 120 yards to find a space. Also the owner was impossible to contact directly. Even when we left a message there was no reply. Bedrooms were stifling during the hot weather with no way to get them cool even with windows open

  • "There was no heating on when we arrived, so the property was freezing."

    In order to try and make the lounge warm enough to sit in we had to put the heating on full time, which subsequently made the bedrooms too hot. There is only an electric fire in the kitchen diner and one radiator in the lounge. I’m only 5’2” and found the double bed very small, I would not have liked to share with anyone else. I struggled to get the washing machine to work properly as there were no instructions, the same with the oven as the symbols were faded and there were no instructions. Some of the kitchen equipment was dirty and there wasn’t a lot of it. The property made a good base for visiting family, but I wouldn’t like to holiday there. Needs some tlc.

  • "The property was hard to keep warm downstairs."

    We could not get the TV to work but used our own login on Netflix. Loved the place. Lovely and homely.

  • "One of the best cottages we have stayed in."

    Very clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. A good night's sleep was had in comfortable beds. We will definitely stay in this cottage again. The nearby Fox pub was the icing on the cake.

  • "All the beds were very uncomfortable with very old mattresses."

    Had to get our camping mattresses & sleep on the floor.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm pleased to confirm that all mattresses have been replaced and they are now brand new. We hope to see you back again. Property Owner

  • "The cottage we well nigh perfect and both front and rear gardens are totally dog proof even for a German Shepherd."

    Although hidden down an alleyway the food delivery found us no problem. Parking was not as bad as I feared. Always available and only 50 yards. The internet was good. The stairs were rustic and the treads a little narrow for anyone who perhaps might be less agile. No shop in the village but a garage with shop was only a couple of miles away. The accommodation was excellent with everything you could need and comfortable.

  • "This character cottage was very well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    The cottages was accessed by a path over which scaffolding was erected and work was being carried out on the roof of the attached cottage, we had to walk under this. Although nothing untoward happened we think we should have been made aware of this. The parking situation is also not the best, parking on the road is allowed however if the village is busy ie school times, parking is very difficult.

  • "The cottage was cosy but the plumbing is in need of attention."

    There were banging noises after using the hot tap in the bathroom and a slight leak from the bath into the living room.

  • "Lovely cottage well situated for local amenities."

    Some beautiful villages nearby and of course Rutland water. Couple of negatives, garden needs some pruning work to let more sunlight in and within the cottage I feel the bathroom is in need of refurbishment.

  • "Despite a few hiccoughs, the cottage is very nice and in a nice location."

    Rutland good place to visit, would highly recommend woolsthorpe manor, home of Issac Newton. Awe inspiring house just to be in, maybe it's a nerdy thing.

  • "There are a couple of good things so I don't want to be completely negative."

    The kitchen is fine and contains everything you need and the shower is OK. The problem is that this property feels really neglected and it is like someone has just thrown up a few random pictures that look completely out of place and thought it was OK. The garden is a huge disappointment and is completely overgrown to the point where the foliage has grown across the windows in the dining room and blocked off the light so when you walk through the back door, it is really really dark. The windows upstairs, apart from being painted black which is a little odd are in a real state of disrepair and look dreadful. The advert says oak furniture upstairs, there is no oak in the place, everything is pine and the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have cheap metal framed beds. Lastly the parking is a nightmare. The property is on a narrow street and down a tiny alleyway so you have to go quite a way to park which when your vehicle is full of expensive fishing tackle ready for your time on the reservoir this was really not what you wanted to have to do. Overall to sum up, I think the property is tired and needs a lot of love before placing it on the rental market. I stay in Rutland 4 times a year, every year and unfortunately would not go back to this cottage

    Thank you for your feedback, and I am sorry the cottage was not as you expected. The property is unusual in that it is accessed via the alleyway and has no parking directly outside although some guests do find this to be a charming feature. I am very grateful for your feedback with regard to the areas that could be improved and we will be addressing these points and the error in the description immediately. Property Owner
