Mill Cottage is a lovely detached holiday cottage benefitting from a master bedroom with king size bed which can also be set as twins (3' velcro link beds), a large second bedroom with two twin beds and one single bedroom. Plenty of room for a baby too, a cot and highchair are free on request but please bring own cot bedding. The bedrooms share an upstairs family bathroom with wc, basin and shower over the bath and there is a second wc and basin downstairs. The cosy lounge has a woodburner stove (logs provided free) and a combined TV (freesat), DVD and CD player. The separate dining room has seating for 6. The fully equipped kitchen and utility room have all the facilities required for a comfortable self-catering holiday break.
The cottage has oil-fired central heating throughout.
The garden is enclosed and enjoys a lawn area with orchard trees, garden furniture and gravel standing for up to 4 cars. North Brook runs through the grounds (shallow but unfenced - care with young children) and is the northern boundary of the garden.
Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome to accompany their owners to Mill Cottage (additional £25 applies). There are beautiful walks right from the Cottage door but do keep Muttley on a leash on public rights of way. We also have a large private field near the Cottage where well trained dogs may run free but please remember that the location of Mill Cottage is a haven for wildlife - deer, badgers, rabbits, foxes and myriads of birds!

The Rutland region
For a relaxing break in the countryside, without the traffic or the queues, welcome to Rutland, England's smallest county! Imagine miles of uninterrupted views across open countryside, footpaths following historic and well known trails including the Viking Way and Macmillan Way or enjoy meandering through country lanes, listening to bird song, with chocolate box villages dotted along the way. Why not take off by bike, and explore the county on two wheels, perhaps stopping off at one of the Rutland's many traditional Inns for light refreshments along the way.
First recognised as a Shire County in 12th Century, Rutland has a rich history and a proud people. Rutland has always depended on the land for a living, and today it remains a predominantly agricultural county as can be seen by the rolling hills and flower filled meadows.
A major change to Rutland's landscape came in the 1970's, with the creation of Rutland Water. The tiny hamlets of Nether Hambleton and Middle Hambleton in the Gwash Valley were flooded to make way for the reservoir; when the villages were lost, so too were peoples homes, farms and way of life; their story lives on though, through the historical displays and fascinating information available at the Normanton Church Museum.
Rutland's central location and easy access make it an ideal place to stay during a trip to the East Midlands, with a range of fascinating attractions close at hand. Burghley House, home to the internationally famous annual Horse Trials, and the castles of Rockingham, Belvoir and Grimsthorpe are all an easy drive away. Families will enjoy visiting Twinlakes Park at Melton Mowbray, Conkers in the heart of the National Forest and the National Space Centre in Leicester – all great days out.
Rutland Water has an internationally respected reputation for sailing, trout fishing and bird watching and numerous competitions and events for these sports take place at the reservoir throughout the year. The reservoir also caters expertly for visitors, and beginners or novices are welcome to try any number of exhilarating activities during a stay in Rutland. From fly fishing, to sailing, from kayaking to windsurfing, with professional instruction. In addition, the reservoir's 25-mile shoreline features a civilised circular track around which a pleasant day can be spent walking or cycling.
