About this location
The Rutland region
Small is beautiful, and certainly England's smallest county lives up to this maxim. Rutland County measures just sixteen miles square in area, where the countryside has little changed since medieval times, apart from the vast, Rutland Water reservoir.
Rutland was first recognised as an official Shire County in the 12th Century, although its history goes back much further. Many of the town and village names date back to the early Anglo Saxon period around the 7th Century.
Where the name Rutland came from, no one is certain. Some claim it refers to the rich red colour of the soil, but it is more likely that Rutland was Rota Land, a ruler who owned a large estate in the area soon after the Roman period.
Rutland is a little piece of old England, hidden away at the heart of the country. It's a place where Kings once hunted deer in the valleys, where tiny villages were bequeathed to Mercian Queens and where charming thatched cottages, ancient churches and fine Georgian architecture are all reminiscent of a bygone age.
Historic buildings in Rutland include the Great Hall of Oakham's Norman Castle, which is filled with horshoes from visiting aristocracy over the centuries. The famous Bede House at Lyddington was built as a palace for the Bishop's of Lincoln in the 15th Century and remains an important historic site at the heart of this pretty village.
The 1970's was a most turbulent time in Rutland's modern history. Not only did the county endure a dramatic change of landscape, but against its will it was also merged with Leicestershire, despite much opposition from the local inhabitants. However, Rutlander's independent spirit prevailed, and in 1997 Rutland regained it's status as a separate English County and today remains one of the most charming rural areas in Britain.

"I would choose to stay there again long term if need arose"
My wife & I stayed at Lavender a month. This cottage was located in its own garden with fantastic views over ther country side. Very quiet and a haven for all sorts of birds.
Everything nescessary for a long or short term stay was provided. Even a washing/drying machine, not to mention free wireless internet. The rooms were serviced on a weekly basis with clean bedlinen and a spruce up around the place.
Ideally located with its private, secure off road parking, you could walk, fish, sightsee or just relax in the spacious garden, or shop in the local small country towns. Both the local manager, Roger and Gen, the overseer were extremely helpful and provided all sorts of information. A1 plus.
