Idyllic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Have just come back from a week close to Rutland Water and I want to say how delighted we were with our accommodation in the Garden Apartment at Manton Lodge Farm. We were immediately hit by the magnificant views across the valley from the sitting room and bedroom windows and the glorious gardens around the house abundant with spring flowers. The apartment was all we could wish for with a well equipt kitchen and cosy sitting room. The spacious bedroom and bathroom was also a bonus.

There are plenty of interesting walks around Rutland Water and if interested in sailing there was plenty going on at the Rutland Sailing Club. Also of great interest were the Barnsdale Gardens where we spent some 4-5 hours.

If you like the great outdoors and self catering in a natural country setting do give Manton Lodge a try. You will get a warm welcome.

Fabulous place to visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed here for 12 days in July, 2017. I was very pleased when we arrived.The pictures are exactly what you get. Beautiful flowers, gorgeous landscaping and such a peaceful place. Mrs. Atkins is a lovely person, very personable. We truly wished it wasn't time to move on. Sad to know we will not see Mrs. Atkins or her beautiful place again.

A beautiful & relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

Everything was exactly like the pictures.

We stayed with our very old dog in tow in the Valley View apartment that definitely lived up to its name, rolling country side views from all the windows and a most spectacular well stocked garden that was a pleasure to stroll around.

The apartment was well furnished and very clean. Kitchen was small but functional for a short break, missed not having a full cooker but gave us a good excuse to eat out! The huge comfy bed gave us some good nights sleep too.

Lots to do around Rutland and some great walks. Stamford is definitely worth a visit and not far away.

Fantastic setting to unwind & relax in, Caroline was a great host and would recommend the place to friends & family.

We hope to stay again in the future.

Idyllic spot

  • 5 of 5

A most attractive property with beautiful gardens very close to Rutland Water. The Garden Room was very comfortable and had all we needed. Views are lovely out to fields with sheep. The little terrace off the bedroom is idyllic - perfect for a glass of wine with a view in the evenings. Definitely recommend.

Comfortable week in the Garden Apartment

  • 4 of 5

As we approached the Apartment we could sense the tranquillity of the surrounding area. Everywhere was neat and tidy and suitable, as we had expected for our stay. The garden was awesome; a delight to walk and sit amongst the beautiful blooms. Caroline, the owner was warm and friendly; nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend this apartment to friends or family. We enjoyed Rutland Water; we had a lovely time visiting Oakham, Stamford, Market Harborough and various nature reserves. We enjoyed a meal at The Barn in Oakham; lovely food and good service.

Well worth a stay.

Pretty cottage in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Room is an apt description for this pretty cottage, being surrounded by wonderful gardens and fantastic rural views beyond. We watched new born lambs in the adjoining fields, ponies grazing and wild birds feeding right outside our window.

We were a couple with two dogs and were all made very welcome by Caroline.The cottage is compact, but we had everything we needed and in early spring we were cosy and warm. There are plenty of lovely walks and Rutland Water is within easy access on foot. There are also lots of cycle routes around the water.We can recommend the Horse and Jockey on your way to the shore side - only 5 minutes away.

Further afield Stamford, Burleigh House and Oakham are all well worth visiting.

All in all a five star experience!
