Everything was exactly like the pictures.
We stayed with our very old dog in tow in the Valley View apartment that definitely lived up to its name, rolling country side views from all the windows and a most spectacular well stocked garden that was a pleasure to stroll around.
The apartment was well furnished and very clean. Kitchen was small but functional for a short break, missed not having a full cooker but gave us a good excuse to eat out! The huge comfy bed gave us some good nights sleep too.
Lots to do around Rutland and some great walks. Stamford is definitely worth a visit and not far away.
Fantastic setting to unwind & relax in, Caroline was a great host and would recommend the place to friends & family.
We hope to stay again in the future.
A most attractive property with beautiful gardens very close to Rutland Water. The Garden Room was very comfortable and had all we needed. Views are lovely out to fields with sheep. The little terrace off the bedroom is idyllic - perfect for a glass of wine with a view in the evenings. Definitely recommend.
As we approached the Apartment we could sense the tranquillity of the surrounding area. Everywhere was neat and tidy and suitable, as we had expected for our stay. The garden was awesome; a delight to walk and sit amongst the beautiful blooms. Caroline, the owner was warm and friendly; nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend this apartment to friends or family. We enjoyed Rutland Water; we had a lovely time visiting Oakham, Stamford, Market Harborough and various nature reserves. We enjoyed a meal at The Barn in Oakham; lovely food and good service.
Well worth a stay.
The Garden Room is an apt description for this pretty cottage, being surrounded by wonderful gardens and fantastic rural views beyond. We watched new born lambs in the adjoining fields, ponies grazing and wild birds feeding right outside our window.
We were a couple with two dogs and were all made very welcome by Caroline.The cottage is compact, but we had everything we needed and in early spring we were cosy and warm. There are plenty of lovely walks and Rutland Water is within easy access on foot. There are also lots of cycle routes around the water.We can recommend the Horse and Jockey on your way to the shore side - only 5 minutes away.
Further afield Stamford, Burleigh House and Oakham are all well worth visiting.
All in all a five star experience!
Before booking we told the owner, Caroline, what we were looking for. She assured us that we wouldn't be disappointed if we stayed at the Garden Apparment and she was right.
The location is perfect for anyone looking for countryside, walks, cycling and cosy country pubs. The apartment is well away from busy roads, at the end of a quiet cull-de-sac, only a short walk from the village pub. The views from the appartment are beautiful, with a lovely garden to sit in and enjoy them, along with the sounds of birds and sheep.
Cycle hire is available, one being a couple of miles away beside Rutland Water, which has a cycle track almost entirely away from roads.
We'll definitely be back to stay at Caroline's Garden Apartment!
Manton is on the edge of Rutland Water, the biggest man-made reservoir in Europe, hosting all sorts of activities.
