"Great place to stay while discovering Rutland/Oakham area."
This self-catering accommodation was well-appointed and spacious. The views from all rooms were pleasant and we loved watching the birds at their feeder while having breakfast. We were able to walk or drive to local pub after a day of exploring Rutland.
