About Mrs Dee Hinch

I have lived in this area for over 30 years and simply love it! It's very peaceful and I am always struck by how friendly people are in Rutland. My husband and children are born and bred here (I'm an interloper from Lancashire...) and I can't see any of us wanting to move anywhere else..! Although sometimes some more sunshine would be nice...

Mrs Dee Hinch purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Mrs Dee Hinch chose England

The lodges are Norwegian log cabins erected in 2009. Rutland is a perfect location from which to visit the rest of England. The lodges are hidden away in a valley on Greetham Valley's golf estate, yet with easy access from the A1 dual carriageway. Rutland Water is just a few minutes drive away and many of Hidden England's stately homes are within easy reach. There are fabulous restaurants / pubs in the locale - the only problem you'll have is deciding which one to choose! We'll be happy to suggest our favourites...

What makes this cabin unique

Within a few minutes walk, Lodge guests may enjoy: free golf on Greetham Valley's nine hole par 3 course; free use of the gym@greethamvalley; free coarse fishing (carp, perch, tench, bream and rudd) on our private Meg's Lake and free trout and carp fishing on Katie's Lake. Discounted green fees on our two main 18 hole golf courses at Greetham Valley, The Lakes and The Valley, a warm welcome in the Lounge Bar and snacks or fine dining in the Restaurants, a take away menu prepared by superb chefs and delivered to your door - perfect for arrival night!

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The Lodges have fully equipped kitchens - but why cook all the time on holiday?! Just a few minutes walk away, Greetham Valley offers a very comfortable, welcoming lounge with well stocked bar, wide range of restaurant and snack menus and a take away service. Rutlanders are genuinely welcoming folk and our staff are second to none in this respect! Five of our eight lodges welcome up to two well behaved pets to accompany their owners - please ask for pet friendly Lodge availability (small additional charge). The Lodges enjoy a deck with outdoor furniture, ideal for alfresco dining. The grassed grounds are shared with our other Lodges and two cars may be parked directly outside each Lodge. Near the lodges is the owner's private coarse fishing lake, Meg's Lake. Lodge guests are very welcome to fish this lake for carp, tench, perch and rudd but please bring your own rods etc. Katie's Lake just upstream offers free trout fishing - rainbow and brown - plus some good sized carp. We've had a 30lb carp caught and released again! It's still there, waiting...
