The property

Wren Cottage is situated in the heart of the county of Rutland in the delightfully picturesque conservation village of Wing, near the town of Uppingham.

Entering through the property, you are welcomed into a small entrance hall with an admirable sitting room to the right, featuring plentiful seating and a TV, where you can look forward to unwinding after exciting days out.

This leads off into a wonderful open-plan kitchen/dining room with a splendid combination of both countryside and contemporary décor, and appliances including a stunning Rayburn that supports both the cooking and the heating, ceramic hob, dishwasher, dining seating for five, and elegant French-style large windows which allows appealing natural light into the room.

Situated next to this room is a separate pantry area with additional cupboard space, a fridge with freezer compartment, and a microwave.

Leading from this area is a hallway where you'll find a cloakroom with a hand basin, WC, and a washing machine for all your utility needs.

Heading upstairs to the first floor is a family bathroom including a bath with a combination tap, WC and hand basin, and a well-decorated double bedroom and twin room, each with ample storage space and a homely feature fireplace.

At the rear of the cottage is a superb long garden and patio area suitable for enjoying a pleasant evening of alfresco dining in the sun.

The property benefits from a tranquil, quiet village location, and is within close proximity to several towns that are well worth a visit.

For those seeking adventure, head to Rutland Water Reserve, one of the largest artificial lakes in Europe, which offers scenic cycling and walking routes around the water, and a wide range of superb amenities, including a bug and reptile zoo, nature reserve, children's play area, golf, fishing, birdwatching, as well as lakeside restaurants and exciting water sports and a small water adventure park during the summer months.

Venture only slightly further afield to come across the picturesque Georgian town of Stamford, which is recognised as one of the finest stone towns in England, with its winding River Welland, lush meadow community park, beautiful church, and splendid cobbled stone Georgian high streets, which boast an excellent variety of eateries, quirky independent shops as well as popular shopping outlets.

About the location


Oakham 6.1 miles; Rutland Water 5.6 miles; Stamford 12.5 miles; Melton Mowbray 17 miles; Leicester 20 miles.

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.
