Rutland is an idyllic rural destination offering a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. While being a relatively hidden gem, Rutland is convenient to reach from all directions as it is situated in the heart of the East Midlands, making it the ideal location for short breaks in the UK. Quietly nestling in the quiet English countryside, England's smallest county has much to share with you; not least, fantastic Rutland Water, an array of unspoilt villages and two attractive market towns (Upingham and Oakham) packed with charm.

Wakerley and Barrowden old railway station was owned by the London and North Western Railway but from 1883 to 1916 was also served by trains of the Great Northern Railway. Wakereley and Barrowden Railway line stopped at Seaton and KingsCliffe. London and North Western Railway, started at Rugby to Peterborough East and the Great Northern Railway, Leicester Belgrave Road to Peterborough North

The station closed in 1966 and remained unused until the convertion into residential use 1992-1996, carried out by the current owners of which has recently been refurbished.
