About Alex Villa
I can't live without fresh air, my wellies and good glass of red wine - oh and it would be pretty boring without my wife, Kate and puppy, Scamp! Kate and I have a love of food and an active lifestyle. We have recently moved to Rutland to fulfil our dream of running a small holiday let business - we love it and hope you will too.
Alex Villa purchased this Barn in 2016
Why Alex Villa chose Rutland
The Nest is only 200 yards away from Rutland Water, with fantastic access to walking, riding, sailing, birdwatching, fishing as well as some fantastic countryside right on the doorstep.
What makes this Barn unique
The Nest is an oak framed building which has some fantastic detail in it. The beams give it a fantastic snug feel to it. There's nothing nicer than coming back from a lovely walk on the water and relaxing in a lovely, comfortable environment afterwards.

A very fine nest
Lovely short stay at the Nest in Whitwell, excellent location and Alex was a welcoming and helpful host. The Nest itself was clean, modern and well-equipped. No complaints, would return if visiting Rutland.
Gem of accomodation in a gem of an area
This property has been beautifully renovated to an extremely high standard & quality.
The owner, Alex, couldn't be more helpful. He lives in adjoining property so is usually available if needed. Thank you Alex, we enjoyed our stay.
Lots to see & do in the area, we wished we'd had longer so will probably return & would definately return to Alex's properties. There's a bus stop right by the drive to the property.
The only very small criticism is that the web site isn't clear on the entrance - on entering the drive from the road turn immediate right!
Delightful and peaceful
A beatiful barn conversion ideal for a short get away in Rutland, close to the lake. Alex is a great host with helpful recommendations for local eateries.
Peaceful and Enjoyable
Alex, was a welcoming yet not intrusive host, who was very helpful in suggesting places for us to go on our visit to Rutland. The Nest has everything you need a warm open lounge and kitchen space with all the appliances one needs to get by. The toilet was immaculately clean and the shower was wonderfully large and everything you need is provided within. The bedroom was well sized and comfortable. Can't wait to come back.
Truly beautiful cosy nest!!
The Nest is a well equipped property that caters for everything. The high spec accommodation was a real home from home experience and I would recommend it to anyone. The owners were very helpful during my stay
Superb base for exploring Rutland Water
This was our 3rd stay at the Nest. The accommodation is superb and provides an extremely comfortable and relaxing base to enjoy the beautiful Rutland Water. Alex and Kate have done a great job with the barn conversions and have always provided a warm and friendly welcome. I’m sure we will be back for a 4th visit in the not too distant future.
