“Five ladies playing golf at Luffenham Heath found this cottage excellent.”
Beds extremely comfortable. Showers excellent. Eating around a large dining table with plenty of room als found the kitchen well equipped. We all loved the conservatory to chill out in after golf with a glass of wine. We came for a Midland Vets Ladies Team Championship where the cottage was in a super position to the golf club. We were all totally chilled and relaxed.

“This was a beautiful house with wonderful furnishing.”
It contained everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The cottage had all the facilities needed to make a perfect holiday. The location could not have been better. It was quiet with easy access to the local village as well within close proximity to other bigger towns.
“This is a lovely house, set in a good location on the outskirts of Uppingham.”
Very quiet for most of the time, although the nearby primary school can generate some occasional noise. Only 10 minutes easy walk from the centre of Uppingham, where there are various shops (butchers and bakers) + some pubs and restaurants. The house is very spacious and fully equipped and, as there were just two of us, there was lots of room to sit around in. There is a lovely big flower garden and lawn that wraps around the whole house, with some new garden furniture at the back (inc a charcoal barbecue). Easy drive from here to Rutland Water (20 mins to the North side) and Oakham for some bigger supermarkets. Took a nice hike down to EyeBrook reservoir via the Rutland Round path which is close by, came back via the village of Lyddington which is a must see, two nice pubs and very scenic (as a bonus extra the RAF Lancaster made a low pass right over the pub while we were there). Note: there is a proper path alongside the road all the way from Uppingham to Lyddington, not shown on OS maps as it is a street path. One more extra to mention, we took a TrailCam with us to take photos of any animals coming to the garden. It turns out the back garden is frequented a lot by badgers. Put out peanuts and sure enough at 10pm along came a Brock. Got some good videos of the evening meal being consumed!
“This is a lovely, quiet location.”
The rooms were much larger than expected and the kitchen extremely well equipped. It was just a shame that with our timetable and itinerary we were not able to enjoy the lovely gardens - although we still saw a lot of local wildlife through the Patio doors and conservatory windows! All questions and contact handled efficiently and in a helpful and friendly manner. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit the area.
“Very spacious, rooms are all big, so plenty of room to move around and sit in comfort.”
The garden is also a great size, with outside seating available. Well equipped generally. My only small negative comment is that there was a musty smell in some of the kitchen cupboards and in the utility room on arrival, this did clear after airing. We would certainly book the property again. The whole family enjoyed being there.
“Great accommodation,very comfortable,in quiet location,but only a short walk into Uppingham,which has a good selection of pubs,and shops.”
We used the local buses to get about,and the service to Oakham,Rutland water,and Stamford, was every two hours.

Uppingham is a picturesque traditional Rutland market town with honey-coloured stone buildings offering a range of speciality shops, traditional family retailers, antique galleries, art galleries and tea rooms as well as country pubs, a weekly Friday market and an award-winning Heritage Trail which highlights the many historic features of the town. In the centre is the Market Square with the original fountain, where a temporary livestock market has been held every year since 1889. Uppingham and the surrounding area are steeped in history and offer something to suit all tastes and interests. Many sporting events are available at Rutland Water including walking, fly fishing, birdwatching, cycling and horse riding as well as golf, rock climbing, a high rope course and numerous watersports. Just a short drive takes you to Burghley House, one of the grandest houses of the Elizabethan Age, home to Burghley Horse Trails and offering Capability Brown-designed gardens. This stunning house was used in the filming of Pride and Prejudice and The Da Vinci Code. Rockingham Castle, built on behalf of William the Conqueror, is open to the public throughout the summer, and plays host to events throughout the year including International Horse Trials, music festivals and family events. The town of Stamford, known as the finest stone town in England, and Oakham with its castle with horseshoes, heritage trail, and bi-weekly markets and monthly farmers’ market, are both worth a visit. Rockingham Speedway offers numerous track events throughout the year, or why not try out one of their many track days? The area boasts many award-winning pubs and restaurants with local produce such as cheese, bread, meats and fish, all of which can be bought at one of the many markets in the Rutland area. Visit the city of Leicester, nestling on the River Soar on the edge of the National Forest and the burial place of King Richard III, or the 'Rural Capital of Food' Melton Mowbray, home to the famous Pork Pie and Stilton cheese.
