“Beautiful minibreak”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2016

Gorgeous house and countryside - loads of space, style, and sublime views. All the comfort and conveniences we needed. Fabulous walks, and a nice local county pub - what more could you want?! Alex was a lovely host, replied promptly and all went really smoothly.

“Unusual Building - Comfortable Stay”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2016

Our family really enjoyed our 2 night stay in the converted railway station which was comfortably equipped, sleeping 7 very easily. Surrounding villages very pretty, with welcoming pubs - dinner in Coach House at South Luffenham was excellent. Rutland Water close by and beautiful, also Stamford was a very interesting town to visit.
