From the owner

Primrose Hall Cottage is a beautifully renovated, Grade 2 listed stone barn conversion. It is ideally situated in the Rutland village of Empingham, within walking distance of Rutland Water’s North Shore.

Check in is contactless, using a key safe at the property, avoiding personal interaction if that is what you would prefer. An enhanced cleaning regime is also now in operation.

The cottage has 2 good-sized bedrooms, sleeping up to 4 people, and a spacious, open plan ground floor. Fully equipped for modern living, it retains many of its original features and character. We welcome all guests, including singles, couples, families and friends. We are also dog friendly.

The cottage includes an open plan kitchen/diner and lounge, a downstairs shower room/cloakroom, two bedrooms (one double, one twin), an upstairs cloakroom and an outside seating area. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, electric oven and hob. The cottage also benefits from a washing machine and tumble dryer (a highchair, stair gate and travel cot are available on request). Don’t worry about packing the cooking essentials, as you will find the kitchen is well equipped for self catering.

The interior has been refurbished and decorated to a high standard whilst maintaining its distinct character, with solid oak doors and stairs, gas central heating throughout and contemporary lighting. The original oak block flooring and stone fireplace which now features a log burner, have also been carefully restored.

In the winter evenings, you can snuggle up on the comfy sofas, in front of the newly installed log burner to chat and relax, listen to music or watch television. There are also games to play and books to read. Outside there is a fully enclosed sun trap with table and chairs, wall hanging planters and kitchen herbs. Enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner out here in the summer months.

Interaction with guest

Shortly before your holiday, we will send you details about your stay and how to find us. This is also an ideal opportunity for us to answer any questions that you may have. We provide a box of breakfast basics, allowing you to have a relaxing first evening without the worry of food shopping straight away. Alternatively, pre-order your supermarket shop, tell us the time of an afternoon delivery slot and we will receive and unpack it for you. We raised our family here, which means we have an extensive knowledge of the area; its geography, attractions, amenities and leisure facilities. Feel free to ask us for recommendations on where to go and what to do.
