This delightful former rectory dates back to the 1720s and adjoins the owner's home within beautiful landscaped grounds in the pretty hamlet of Thornhaugh. Used during the 1940s by the ladies of the Land Army, The Old Rectory retains many original features including mullion windows and attractive architraves, whilst the imposing landing is adorned with 'big game' trophies. The Old Rectory provides a perfect holiday base for exploring all this beautiful area has to offer.

At its heart lies Rutland Water, which attracts visitors worldwide for bird watching, fishing and water sports. There is an abundance of excellent walks found locally with the Jurassic, Viking and Macmillan Ways to explore. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon is to browse around Barnsdale Gardens, designed by the late Geoff Hamilton.

The area is full of historic towns such as Stamford, 5 miles, which has been given conservation status. Once an important wool town, it has retained much of its old world charm and prosperity. Several of the buildings are of old Lincolnshire limestone, giving the town a fine appearance. There is much of interest in Stamford, including the Meadows (a pleasant place to picnic), All Saints' Church and the picturesque Barn Hill behind it, as well as All Saints' Brewery and Stamford Arts Centre, which has one of England's earliest provincial theatres. Other towns of interest are Melton Mowbray, Oakham and Uppingham. Peterborough is 11 miles offers many amenities, including its magnificent cathedral. There are also many shops, restaurants and bars as well as theatres, cinema and greyhound stadium.

Pretty villages with country inns serving real ale and excellent food can be found within a pleasant drive and make the perfect place in which to unwind after a day's sightseeing.

"Holiday Review"

Having just returned from a stay in the old rectory with my extended family, we are concerned that the shop and pub were more than 1 mile in distance away and included a trip over fields, not entirely… More
