The Heart of England/Peak District
Rutland is a relatively unknown gem, situated in the east of England, north of Cambridgeshire. It doesn't have the high profile of the Cotswolds or the Lake District and yet it is equally stunning.
The area is renowned for its beautiful Georgian stone-built market towns and villages, the Burghley Estate with its Capability Brown-designed gardens, Rutland Water and its beautiful countryside. The area has recently featured in the films of Pride and Prejudice, The Da Vinci Code and Middlemarch.
two chapel lane is situated in the pretty village of Ketton, just four miles from the Georgian market town of Stamford. There are two local pubs, a convenience store (with post office facilities) and a church; and all just a short stroll away.
Visitors have easy access to a variety of activities and events including sailing, fishing, bird watching, cycling, golf, concerts and the theatre as well as cosy pubs and some excellent restaurants. Stamford also offers some great shopping including stylish boutiques, gift shops and specialist food stores.
Local supermarkets include M&S and Tesco. The popular Burghley Horse Trials take place every September.
A 3,100 acre reservoir providing sport and leisure facilities as well as supporting wildlife conservation. Visitors can take part in sports such as windsurfing, rock-climbing or canoeing, hire a dinghy, bicycle or fishing boat, go bird-watching or fishing, or just relax by the water around the 25 mile shoreline. It is the largest man-made lake in Western Europe. www.rutlandwater.org.uk
A unique open air theatre re-built in 1993. With 600 seats and a permanent fabric canopy over the auditorium facing the open air stage, it is set against a beautiful woodland background. It now attracts more than 30,000 people from the UK and Overseas to the annual 13-week summer season of Shakespeare plays. www.stamfordshakespeare.co.uk/tolethorpe-hall.htm
A large country estate on the edge of Stamford. The house was designed and built by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 1587. The main part of the House has 35 major rooms, with a further 80 smaller rooms, numerous halls, corridors, bathrooms and service areas. The parkland was laid out by Capability Brown. It is open to visitors from April until October. The famous Burghley Horse Trials are held in September. www.burghley.co.uk
The gardens at Barnsdale in Rutland, were built by gardener Geoff Hamilton over several years for BBC TV Gardeners' World programme & various other BBC specials. Since his death in 1996, his gardens have been open to the public & include a nursery and unusual plants, mainly propagated from the gardens. www.barnsdalegardens.co.uk
Stamford Arts Centre, St Mary's Street, just off St George's Square
The Arts Centre houses a theatre/cinema, assembly room, cafe, art gallery and tourist information centre. The assembly room complete with chandeliers, dates back to 1727. The theatre was added 51 years later and is one of England's earliest provincial theatres. www.stamfordartscentre.com
The Meadows, Near Stamford Town Centre, South of Bath Row
Originally called the Water Meadows, the Meadows is a pleasant place to picnic, sit and relax and watch or feed the birds. It provides level walking along the River Welland, where you'll find the Boudicea plaque recording her pursuit of the Romans, and is the starting point for the Jurassic Way. There are footpaths to the villages of Easton-on-the-Hill and Tinwell.
Stamford Museum, Broad Street, Stamford
The museum sets out the history and archaeology of the town from its earliest times to today with displays, exhibitions and galleries. The museum organises a yearly series of public lectures and its archives are available to view for researchers and students.
All Saints Brewery, Just off Red Lion Square in Stamford town centre
Originally established in 1825 as a steam-operated brewery, it was restored in the late 1990's to produce specialised fruit beers from a micro-brewery known as Melbourn Bros All Saints Brewery. It has a coffee lounge, restaurant and brewery shop and is open for guided tours and tastings by pre-arrangement.
All Saints' Church, Red Lion Square, Stamford town centre
Dating back to the 13th Century and rebuilt by the Brownes after suffering damage during the Wars of the Roses, this striking church in Red Lion Square has Browne family memorial brasses, a carved angel roof, stained glass windows and a reredos of the Last Supper. Open daily. www.allsaintschurch.org.uk
Brownes Hospital, Stamford Town Centre
The wealthy wool merchant, William Browne, and his wife, Margaret, founded this almshouse in the late 15th Century to house 10 poor men and 2 poor women with a Warden and a Confrater, both of whom were to be priests in holy orders. Despite extensive 19th Century restorations much of the medieval stained glass, original furniture and archives remain. Open weekends and Bank Holidays May-September.

Thank-you very much for you lovely review - I'm really pleased that you liked both the cottage and the area. It's a shame that the Northwick Arms was closed during your visit. I understand it's just been sold and is opening under new ownership - so hopefully it will be up and running again if you do make a return visit. Kind regards, Gillian

"Perfect cosy cottage stay"
The photographs of this property are fantastic and don't even do it justice- this is one of those rare occasions where it is better in real life!
The cottage is gorgeous, really beautifully and thoughtfully decorated in a cosy country style.
The kitchen is clean and modern with dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The oven is easy to use and there are simple instructions for all the appliances. There is a wide selection of DVDs in the living room, as well as books and CDs plus Sky+, no chance of getting bored if you're staying for a while! The log burner is a great feature especially if you're staying during winter as we did.
It's next door to a pub but we didn't notice at all noise wise. Plus really handy if you want to pop out for a drink without going far.
The owner had thoughtfully left us a pint of milk and a bottle of prosecco which was such a kind touch!
Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.
Thank-you very much for your very kind review. It's always great to know that guests enjoy staying at our cottage and would be happy to recommend it to their family and friends. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Gillian

Thank-you for your lovely feedback - I'm really pleased you all enjoyed your stay. I didn't realise exercise classes were held at the chapel next door, so will definitely post that on to our Facebook page for future guests. Hope to see you all again soon.

"Cosy, warm and well equipped"
Overall very comfortable stay and owners went to great lengths to accommodate our needs. Parking was easy. Only minor issues were that better operating instructions for TV, oven and microwave would have made it a bit easier but nothing to stop us going back again.
