“Excellent facilities, delightful and charming old cottage with all the mod cons to make you comfortable.” Sharon (Owner) has taken thought and care with the decor of her beautiful cottage to maintain its character and charm but also ensured it is clean and provides all the fascitiies to help you make the most of your stay. Lovely and well equipped kitchen. Having a dishwasher and washing machine is very helpful when you're away from home. Two of the bedrooms have a kingsize/double bed and the third a single bed and ideal for a child with books and it's cheerful decor.
There are plenty of extras in the kitchen, not always provided in self catering, such as dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, salt pepper, tea coffee, herbs, spices etc. I always take my own anyway when staying away as you cannot expect that all places will have so much available but it's worth sending Sharon an email to ask about anything you're not sure of to about bringing as she always replies promptly.
Upstairs bathroom has a deep bath which was very comfortable it also has an overhead shower but we did not use that.
Hambleton itself is lovely and quiet and very easy distance of Rutland Water which is great to cycle, walk or run round.
The bed was much softer than we are used to but very comfortable and we slept well.
Heating and hot water controls, easy to understand and use.
Would recommend this to friends and family and happy to stay here again if we were visiting this area.
“Surprise birthday weekend” We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. Katie met my daughter at the property to show her around. We enjoyed the pool facilities, the cinema room and the large garden. This holiday let would benefit from a deep clean and there are a few snagging issues that need to be sorted out such as shower temperature and power and no handle on the inside of the sauna door. We took our dogs who loved the garden but Paddington the chow chow managed to find a way out through the fence and we had a worrying few minutes locating him. There are also a few old and broken things lying around in the garden which could potentially be a hazard. All in all we had a really lovely family break and enjoyed the house and local area.
“Amazing dog friendly farm style apartment!” Home away from home. Stylish, à la cottage apartment with stunning views and amazing location for long walks just moments from Ruthland Water. Very pleasnat and helpful owner. This farm with animals around would be great fun for kids too. We enjoyed our stay and exploring the area. Very peaceful place to recharge your batteries. Extremely comfortable bed and cute bird feeder outside our window are our favourites!
Thank you Caroline
