Our Cottages in Rutland

Rutland is located in the heart of Middle England. Whilst you may prefer to enjoy a restful stay and just enjoy your time in our thatched holiday cottages and the local Rutland and Stamford area, our small county is perfectly positioned to enable you the opportunity to enjoy some days out slightly further afield.
