The property

Settled in the heart of the medieval market town of Oakham is this charming and quirky first-floor apartment, The Hideout, suited to a couple or small family.

Located up a flight of external steps, The Hideout benefits from an attractive front terrace, thoughtful and stylish interiors and a great location within reach of amenities and the wonderful Rutland Water.

Climb the steps up to the gravelled front terrace area, admiring the pretty furniture and outlook back towards the street, before entering the communal front door, and then into The Hideout.

Hang up coats in the hall and leave your shoes before venturing into the kitchen on the left, featuring decorative tiled flooring and fitted units with integrated appliances, complete with a small breakfast bar.

Discover the living and dining room to be a quirky setting full of characterful furnishings, with sofas and armchairs set around the traditional-style electric fire and Smart TV with Sky, and a small dining table with an array of seats to gather around tucked in the corner.

Freshen up within the shower room, boasting a modern heated and light-up mirror, a heated towel rail, basin, WC and walk-in shower.

The double bedroom presents an elegant space to unwind with a chandelier hanging above you, matching furniture, and neutral hues, with the washing machine found hidden in a cupboard.

The second bedroom is accessed via the living/dining room and boasts two single beds.

Begin your day with breakfast alfresco in the sun out on the terrace, before strolling into the town centre to get to know this historic, medieval setting.

Wander through the Market Place on a Wednesday or Saturday to find a plethora of quality local produce from artisan bread to locally made cheeses.

Visit the remains of Oakham Castle, Britain's finest example of Norman architecture, and discover the reasons behind the hanging of horse shoes on the castle walls by royalty and nobility.

Understand the history of the town further by visiting the Rutland County Museum with artifacts from the 6th century displayed here amongst an array of exhibits, whilst railway enthusiasts can make a trip to Oakham Signal Box built in 1899.

For adventurous days out, head to Rutland Water, the East Midlands' very own playground and one of the largest man-made lakes in Europe.

Enjoy a variety of different activities here, from some of the best fishing in the region, a host of cycling routes amidst stunning countryside and waterside scenery, a nature reserve rich in wildlife and plenty of watersports and sailing opportunities, there's something for everyone at Rutland Water!

Other nearby attractions include Rutland Farm park, Barnsdale Gardens, a handful of National Trust sites nearby and Rutland Water Golf Club.

Discover the beauty and wonder of Rutland from The Hideout.

    “Lovely little ‘Hideout’.”

    So convenient for all the shops/ restaurants in Oakham and outlying area. The bed was so comfortable. The roof terrace garden would have been brilliant had the weather been kind to us.
