Description

Located next to the borders of Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire, this delightful holiday property, attached to the owners’ home, offers a peaceful retreat with views across rolling countryside. The historic and picturesque town of Stamford is close by, and was recently dubbed the ’finest town in England’. It has artisan cafes, shops and restaurants, and has formed the backdrop for television costume dramas including ’Middlemarch’, and the 2005 film ’Pride & Prejudice’. Explore Burghley House, which was built and predominantly designed by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 1587. The house is a splendid example of Elizabethan architecture and offers beautiful gardens to explore. It is, of course, also home to many events throughout the year, including the prestigious Burghley Horse Trials in September.

“Lovely!”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2016

Kathy was a great host and the cottage was lovely! Bread and necessities were provided and it was nice to have a fully equipped kitchen for when we wanted to stay in. Close to city but out in the country, nicely decorated. A lovely home for a few days!

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope all went well with the move and have a great Christmas with your family.
