Beautiful rural location
Small apartment ideal for two in an excellent location. It was ideal for us enabling us to travel to the Burghley Horse Trials with ease every day. Caroline was very welcoming to us and our Jack Russell who got on very well with her own dog.
A lovely place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Manton Lodge where the views are beautiful. We went for our friends' wedding at Hambleton Hall which was lovely. We also had a great time visiting Rutland Water Nature Reserve and seeing the ospreys. Also, enjoyed going to Barnsdale Gardens. Everything was nearby including the local pub which was just a short walk away.
Even in November when the weather changed this 4 day stay was brilliant. Good venue from which to tour Rutland Water and the lovely surrounding area. The garden was absolutely lovely to stroll around and travelling with 2 dogs the freedom to exercise (with respect for the livestock) was an absolute blessing. The nearby Local Pub was faultless for good food at good prices. I would fully recommend this venue as the lady was so helpful and friendly to chat too. D.V.James
Thank you for your lovely review, you were lovely guests and we enjoyed having you around.....fun meeting you down by the river, you with your dogs and me on the grandchildren's pony!
Wonderfully relaxing holiday
A lovely quite homely apartment with uninterrupted views of the countryside from every window. My wife and I felt thoroughly revived after a week here. There is plenty to see and do around Rutland. We recommend Caroline's place if you want a real wind down from the rigours of everyday life.
Valley View apartment Sep16
Excellent accommodation, we booked the Valley View apartment as it was described as having stunning views. This was true, overlooking the gardens and away into the distance past the horses and sheep we saw some beautiful sunsets.
We were a little concerned that being in the top apartment would involve many steps to climb but this was not the case as the driveway is on split levels, so not much difficulty taking in luggage.
Ideal location for visiting Rutland Water, Stamford, Peterborough, Leicester etc.
After visiting Rutland Water and paying the car park charges there, we recommend a few miles south visiting a place called Stoke Dry next to
Eyebrook Reservoir, so peaceful and tranquil and free to park. Just imagine when the Dambusters Lancaster bombers did their practicing there!
All in all a great holiday, great accommodation, friendly host etc. would highly recommend.
Lovely location if you want peace and quiet
Stayed for one week and immediately felt welcome. Apartment is rather small but views are tremendous. Amazing garden which you are free to explore or just to sit quietly contemplating nature. Very close to Rutland Water and Oakham where there are plenty of places to eat, however village pub is excellent. Perhaps the only negative would be that although provided with most facilities eg microwave,washing machine, felt some of the smaller kitchen equipment needs replacing as showing signs of wear.
I am so glad that on the whole you found your visit satisfactory but was disappointed about your remarks concerning the kitchen equipment.
I ALWAYS ask departing guest "was everything alright, and is there anything I need to know?"..................and you never said anything!
Kerry and I have been up there this morning inspecting the equipment and could find nothing that appeared to warrant such dissatisfaction, 3 stars seems harsh, might you consider changing it to 4?
Manton is on the edge of Rutland Water, the biggest man-made reservoir in Europe, hosting all sorts of activities.
