The Heart of England/Peak District
Unspoilt and charming, Rutland is England’s smallest county. With it’s historic market towns, gentle rolling hills and quintessential English villages it really is the place to relax and get away from it all.
Explore Oakham, Uppingham and nearby Stamford three of the prettiest towns in the Midlands.
Small is beautiful, and certainly Rutland 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.
Rutland is a little piece of old England, hidden away in the very heart of England. 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 horseshoes 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.

"lovely cottage and setting ideal for winter break"
Lovely cottage in a great location. Very quiet village but easily reached from A1. Good position for days out - Leicester, Stamford and of course Rutland Water. We were a group of adults but would be good for families as there were a selection of toys and games. Lovely and snug so would recommend it for a winter break. Only negative was that we expected two bathrooms and although it was a good size with a large free standing shower there was only the one.
