Rutland is a little gem of a county with beautiful stone villages set in rolling English countryside. It has been likened to a mini Cotswolds and in fact the stone architecture is very similar. Rutland Water is the central attraction with trout fishing, sailing, bird watching ,cycling and walking all available in and around the water. Boat trips on the Rutland Belle give access to the water for the less adventurous but rowing boats and sailing dinghies can be hired from the sailing centre at Whitwell for the more active visitor. The nature reserves at Manton and Egleton have great facilities for bird watchers and the bird life gives year round interest with many interesting wildfowl species visiting in the winter and the famous ospreys in the summer. There are a cycle hire centres at Normanton (south shore) and Whitwell (north shore). There is a well made up track all the way round Rutland Water for cycling and walking and across Rutland there are many footpaths offering the rambler fine rural walking.

Other major attractions in the area are Burghley House just outside Stamford. Stamford is one of England's finest stone towns and Burghley house is a magnificent Elizabethan stately home with very fine antiquities inside, beautiful grounds and a contemporary sculpture garden. There are many excellent pubs and restaurants in the area serving great food and good beer.

All of this and more with easy access to transport links make Rutland a great place to visit.
