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.

Visit Britain rated '5 star' 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 can be booked on it's own to sleep 6 or with the annex for an extra 2 guests).

A newly converted addition to Clematis Cottage is 'The Annex' which has it's own independent entrance around the corner from the cottage but within the same building, this consists of a double bedroom with shower room and lobby area with fridge and tea & coffee making facilities where you can sit and have your early morning cuppa whilst overlooking the Farmhouse court yard.

The Cottage & Annex benefit 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.

Location description from owner

The Lincolnshire region

The medieval hamlet of Aunby, was originally a small village with Church and Monastery unfortunately falling victim to the black death in the mid 1300's. Stamford is located in the south western tip of Lincolnshire bordering onto Rutland, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. Stamford and the surrounding areas are steeped in history, with Burghley House hosting the annual Burghley Horse trials at the beginning of September attracting well over 300,000 visitors over a four day period.

Stamford as a town is also a well known tourist attraction. The first staging post on the great North road from London to Scotland to change the horses at the famous George Hotel, steeped in history and quoted as being "the finest stone town in England."

A favourite with the film buffs as Pride and Prejudice, Middlemarch, The Three Musketeers,and the Da Vinci code were all filmed locally.

Fotheringhay, (Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded here) and the cathedral cities of Peterborough and Lincoln a short drive away.The Knights Templar set forth from the surrounding villages on crusades to Jerusalem and Aunby is actually referenced in the doomsday book.

The area benefits from a host of County houses, golf clubs and wonderful gardens (Geoff Hamilton's Barnsdale gardens for example.)

Aunby

The local area is famous for fine eating (Melton Mobray being the home of Pork pies, and locally produced blue vein Stilton Cheese,) with Stamford being voted the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times.

Although located in rural England London is very easily reached by train (Peterborough station to Kings Cross in less than 50 minutes, making a shopping trip and London show easily available.

Rutland water is a favorite haunt for walkers, birdwatchers, fly fishermen, cyclists etc

“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

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.

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.
