  • "A fantastic lodge for all the family, so relaxing my girls loved the upstairs room every kids dream."

    Dog friendly, nice and close to Rutland aqua park which my girls also loved. The hot tub was fab and the fire pit so cosy. Allan the manager was very welcoming and friendly setting up the hot tub everyday. We had a very relaxing holiday and will defo be back and would highly recommend this lodge.

  • "Myself and my friends had a lovely time here, we really enjoyed the privacy provided when in our cabin / in the garden area."

    The cabin itself was lovely, hot tub was fantastic and already heated for us when we arrived! The only thing would be I wish there was a bit of cabinet space for our food that doesn’t belong in the fridge but that’s so trivial anyway, everything else was perfect! Owners were so lovely and would love to come back one day.

  • "Absolutely loved the Lodge and surrounding area."

    Really nice owners on site. Hot tub was amazing.. Maybe a welcome pack with information on area and shops , pubs etc and some info on Lodge heating operation would be a nice addition. These are not faults, just trying to help you going forward, one last tip would be to have someone clean windows as this would increase the outlook of the lovely views.

    Really beautiful location and great for walking. The pub isn’t far too. The owners are lovely and really helpful and also ensured the hot tub was hot for the evenings. They also have outdoor heaters you can use too. Would really recommend.

South Luffenham Lodges are a collection of stylish and contemporary lodges, finished to a high standard and boasting wood-fired hot tubs in the village of South Luffenham, Oakham, Rutland.

Going the extra mile, the communal areas include a natural freshwater dipping area, complete with furniture and extra showers, making for a unique stay with loved ones. When you can tear yourself away from this idyllic location, venture to the local pubs for a drink or some traditional pub grub; The Boot Inn and The Coach House Inn are both lovely choices, but within a short drive, you can find a wealth of quality gastropubs to choose from; a particularly outstanding pub is The Finch at Hambleton which is on peninsular of Rutland Water, providing you with outstanding views and food. South Luffenham Lodges are in a prime position, just south of Rutland Water and near Oakham, meaning you can spend your days exploring this scenic area, and stock up on the essentials in the nearest large town. Rutland is known for its many beautiful villages, with stone built and in some cases thatched cottages. The Visitors Centre at Rutland Water is within easy reach, and you can also find a beach, caféss and cycle hire. For longer days out, electric bikes are available, making the 26-mile circular bike track around Rutland Water doable in a day, passing many great pubs in the villages. For those looking for watersports, you won’t be left short, with the Aqua Park nearby too, offering sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddleboarding, for all levels of experience. If you’re looking for something a little more historical, be sure to visit Stamford House and Burghley House, both just scenic drives away and delightful days out admiring grand architecture and landscaping. Whatever your style of adventure, make South Luffenham Lodges your base.
