Description from owner


Clematis cottages have been established for over 15 years and we are continuously improving all aspects of the venue. Many of our guests have returned to us over 12 times during this period, and Trip Adviser have awarded us a 'Certificate of Excellence'

Lodge farm house, built in 1635, overlooking the medieval hamlet of Aunby is located on a hill top with views of rolling countryside, fields and forests to all four aspects The peace and tranquility that surround the cottages helps you to unwind away from the pressures and stresses of day to day living. Even the wi-fi reaches out into the garden so you can book your day return to see a London show whilst enjoying the views. It is the ideal location for a "get away from it all' holiday or short break.Richard and Kaye who live in the seventeenth century farmhouse on site, bought Lodge farm in the year 2000 and since then have worked tirelessly to create a sanctuary for wildlife, rare birds, butterflies and bee's. Jokingly, their friends refer to them as Tom and Barbara (for those who can remember the "Good life!" ) They have created a vegetable and herb garden to die for, with herbs also planted in the flower borders for guests to help themselves. In the springtime lambs are often brought on in the paddock behind the farmhouse, and beside the apiary the ducks and chickens go about their business ensuring that fresh eggs, vegetables, and honey are almost always available.

2007 saw the addition of the wildlife lake and ponds to the flower meadow. Attracting a variety of regular visitors ranging from ducks, red kites, woodpeckers and damsel and dragon flies, to deer, hares and badgers. (Keen bird and bat enthusiasts are regular guests.) Strategically sited benches and summerhouses are inset into the copse of native trees and around the lake and meadow enabling guests to enjoy the simple pleasures of watching nature at it's finest; whilst sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset on the western horizon. Many guests enjoy an evening stroll along the bridle path, and some even bring their fishing rods and visit the local Mary Wood fishing lakes which are only a short walk away. Clematis cottages can be booked as a whole or individually. All properties are fully self contained, and centrally heated making them fully available all year round.

Cottage 1 features a fully fitted shaker style kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, double fan oven with extractor fan, microwave and all the utensils to cater for either a light lunch or dinner party during your stay, also a dining area to seat 8, leading off the dining kitchen is the oak beamed lounge with comfy leather sofa's and foot stool also to seat 8, a large flat screened TV and DVD for those nights in and a coal effect log burner sits in the oak fireplace giving the room a cosy focal point. Off the hallway you will find the newly re-furbished fully tiled shower room with high rise toilet, vanity basin and easy access luxury shower, also downstairs is one of the double bedrooms with walk in wardrobe (ideal for elderly guests) and laundry room. Upstairs is the second double bedroom, family bathroom and twin bedroom.

The Cottage benefits from dedicated parking areas, and the all important high speed internet (wi-fi) connectivity, (so rare in the countryside,) and mobile phone connectivity is not an issue ensuring that if you need to be in contact with the outside world, you are! To see more please visit our own website for loads of photos and the all important Trip Advisor customer reviews. Clematis Cottages consist of 3 cottages and annex which can accommodate 14 in comfort, or 16 with the use of the sofa bed in cottage 2. (Please call Kaye directly to chat about details on holidays/breaks for larger groups.) We always try to ensure that when parties are sharing the facilities available that their wishes are respected. For our younger guests there are 2 cots and high chair available. Clematis cottages make the ideal venue for those very special family /friends reunions, and there is always a quiet sanctuary for Grandma and Grandpa to retreat to!

The award winning town of Stamford, Rutland water, Burghley house and the Elizabethan Tolethorpe hall (venue for the open air Shakespeare productions) are all only a few minutes drive away. Fine dining is on our doorstep with the "6 Bell's" at Witham on the hill, the "Olive Branch" pub of the year 2013 in nearby Clipsham, and the "Jackson Stops"country Inn at Stretton. Nearby Ryhall, is home to the local post office and general store, good for the Sunday paper together with the "Wicked Witch" restaurant and the locals Green Dragon pub serving fresh pizzas. The river Gwash which runs through Ryhall marks the start of many stunning walks, in fact 19th Century poet John Clare is said to have walked his girlfriend from Great Casterton to Ryhall along the banks of the river on summer evening after a day working at the Lime Kilns in nearby Pickworth.

Very Good

“A special place to stay”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2017

It was so peaceful and had wonderful surroundings where you could amble, sit and relax or eat a meal. Everything that you could need had been thought of and provided and the cottage was very comfortable. The owners were particularly friendly and happily chatted about the history of the buildings and how they had developed them. We really enjoyed our stay there and would certainly like to visit again. We would happily recommend it to friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you Eleanor that's so kind of you we would love to welcome you back I'm so glad that you choose us for the wedding accommodation, all the best for the future to the 'Bride and Groom'

“Brilliant weekend at a first class cottage”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2016

We were greeted on arrival by the owners Kaye & Richard and shown round their lovely Clematis Cottage. The property was even more attractive than the photos on the website, warm, welcoming and extremely comfortable. We wanted for nothing, the setting is lovely, pretty gardens, peace and quiet. We were so contented, it was hard to leave the cottage to go out to eat! One of our number has mobility problems and found the downstairs bedroom and bathroom ideal for her needs. We will definitely be back to enjoy Kaye & Richard's lovely property, eggs, honey and hospitality again

Owner's reply: Thank you Helen, I'm so glad that you all enjoyed your weekend in the cottage it was lovely to meet you all as you had driven here from different parts of the country to meet up and so rewarding for us to see your smiley faces, looking forward to your next visit.

“Perfect holiday accomadation”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2014

We are an all adult family who take around 4 long weekends away a year. Clematis cottage No 1 was the cleanest and best equipped we have ever stayed. The grounds were beautiful with a large variety of places to just sit (or eat) both rain or shine. My husband was in heaven viewing the bird life around the cottage grounds and at Rutland Water. We all had the privilege of feeding baby ducklings morning and evening. The owners Kaye and Richard were friendly and helpful but discreet. We felt as if we were the only people there to enjoy the views.

Owner's reply: It was lovely having you all to stay, it is so nice to see our guests enjoying the gardens and wildlife as much as we do, and of course enjoying the comfort of the cottage.
