The Rutland region

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.

"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

"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.

"Great cottage for little people"

Stayed for a 3 night stay with my 2 1/2 year old and 5 month old baby. The cottage was very well equipped for babies and toddlers with 2 travel cots, all cot linen, bath toys and toys/ books baskets and all the kitchen stuff you could want. The peppa pig plate was a great hit with my toddler! The location is excellent as close to Stamford and there is plenty to do in the local area. The tractor ride at Sacrewell was a great hit. Also appreciated that we arrived in very wet weather and were able to check in to the property early. We will definitely be returning.

"Relaxing"

Having stayed at Two Chapel Lane with a friend in May, I would certainly make a return trip. The cottage itself is a very restful place with lovely, quality decor and very good facilities - I particularly liked the varied range of DVD's on offer and the real fire. It's proximity to Stamford and Burghley House was also very handy. Communication with the owner of the cottage was always friendly and helpful - I would thoroughly recommend staying at Two Chapel Lane and hope to do so again.

"Delightful, well equipped and extremely comfortable cottage"

I booked this cottage last minute for a cycling holiday with my wife and children. The owner was most accommodating and provided great communication. On arrival we were met with a friendly welcome and then left in total peace to enjoy our holiday. The cottage was warm and inviting, well equipped and comfortable. We had a fantastic time exploring nearby Rutland Water by bike and also spent some wonderful evenings fishing. Having spent many years self catering throughout the UK I can whole heartily highly recommend Two Chapel Lane as an exceptional residence and value for money. I will have no hesitation in booking this cottage again...and already we are penciling in dates for some short stays in the very near future.

"A cottage with every creature comfort in a part of England well worth exploring"

Four of us - my wife and our two grown-up daughters - spent Christmas at 2 Chapel Lane in 2011. Having packed the car for the stay it was quickly discovered there was going to be no room for passengers! No matter - rail transport to Peterborough with a connection to Stamford worked very well. The car driver had the worst deal getting consumed by Christmas traffic and problems on the A1. Arriving in the pouring rain, the owner was there to greet us and quickly made us feel at home. For the next few days, we went for walks, ate, drank (at the excellent pub at the end of the lane) and generally relaxed and had a really enjoyable Christmas. Would definitely go again - although the space is probably better suited to a couple and one or two smaller children. A five star cottage, very well situated with some really fine eateries a short distance away.

"Blissfully peaceful"

A wonderfull piece of history in a beautiful village.the cottage is full of light and the vaulted ceiling gives a huge scense of space.i cooked a full roast lamb dinner and there were ten adults and two toddlers that evening and it accommodated us all admirably.
