The property

Knipton is 1.9 miles from Croxton Kerrial.

Perched in the tranquil and historical village of Croxton Kerrial, within the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside, Robin's Nest is an idyllic ground-floor cottage from which to enjoy an escape to the Vale of Belvoir and Rutland Water.

Renovated to a high standard, this stylish abode is perfectly suited to a couple or small family of four.

Leave your coats to hang in the porch as you step inside this warm and welcoming abode, making yourself at home in the open-plan living space as your turn on the traditional open fire and unwind on the sofa, or rustle up a tasty treat in the contemporary kitchen with the help of the many handy appliances that lie within.

Take a seat at the large breakfast bar and begin to map out all of your upcoming adventures exploring the area, or head out into the south facing secure garden with a refreshing glass of wine and enjoy the last of the days sunshine by the little pond as you take in your magnificent surroundings.

Head back inside and discover two well-appointed bedrooms consisting of a king-size and a twin, as well as a light and spacious bathroom hosting a large tub and overhead shower where you can prepare for the day.

Finishing off the interior of the cottage is a homely study or ideal for a nursery, a peaceful place to enjoy some time before gathering with loved ones for an entertaining evening.

Wander over to the historic Croxton Abbey, famously home to the burial of King John's heart, with several of the church pews dating back 500 years, a fantastic place to uncover the village history.

Begin your days with a relaxing stroll or bike ride to the neighboring village of Knipton, home to a charming Post Office with a village store, Knipton reservoir and the Manners Arms, an AA accredited 4 star restaurant and Country Inn ideal for a pint or two before heading for the hamlet of Harston or the beautiful village of Branston for a pint at The Wheel and back to Croxton (quiet circular walk on country roads) continuing past a stream and a lake for a further 2 miles (approx 75 minutes walk to Belvoir from Croxton) you can explore the grand fortress of Belvoir Castle & their unique artisan retail village with a wood fired pizza (served till 9pm on certain nights).

For those who love walking carry on down to just outside Woolsthorpe which is on the Viking Way and Jubilee Way and have a pint at the Dirty Duck situated on the canal route and then back via Harston.

The Vale of Belvoir is being considered as the next ANOB (area of outstanding beauty) and when you stay at Robin's Nest you will see why with quintessential pubs, churches, canals and hamlets surrounded by wonderful countryside and all dominated by the awe inspiring Belvoir Castle.

Some very good golf courses are available within 10 miles and the owner has left a bag of golf clubs and is happy to share his knowledge!

Angling is also very popular with day passes on the lakes and reservoir of Belvoir Estates and Rutland Water.

Other attractive neighboring villages with lovely walks are Harlaxton with a walk through part of Harlaxton Manor grounds and Denton with a lovely walk around Denton reservoir.

Within a 30 minute drive of Robin's Nest is the magnificent Belton House with its Swiss chalet style Boat House, Bellmount Tower and the well-kept landscapes of Londonthorpe Wood.

Other properties include The National Trust Woolsthorpe Manor, the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton, Easton Walled Gardens and Grimsthorpe Castle, both members of Historic Houses, alternative ideas include a day at Twinlakes Park, a ride on the Great Central Railway or cycling and boating at Rutland Water.

Market towns within a similar 30 minute drive include Melton Mowbray home to the famous pork pie with market day on Tuesday, the delightful Georgian town of Stamford and the Elizabethan Burghley House, (Historic Houses) with its famous horse trials in September, Newark on Trent with its ruined Castle and National Civil War Centre and Oakham, the Capital of Rutland and Rutland Water ideal for water pursuits and bird watching.

Under an hour's drive is two of England's finest cities, Nottingham where the National Justice Museum, recently renovated Nottingham Castle and the City of Caves await you or delight in a spot of shopping and Lincoln with its magnificent Cathedral, Castle and cobbled streets / independent shops, finally Rockingham Castle (Historic Houses) and the market towns of Oundle and Uppingham with their famous public schools make for an excellent day out.

With so much adventure right on your doorstep, be sure to book a stay at Robin's Nest!
