Maggie and I having been living in Germany for the past several years, prior to which we lived in Rutland and remain very fond of our quirky little county. The locals are friendly, the countryside is very attractive and there's plenty to do and see - Multum in Parvo (the county motto -Much in Little). We very much hope you find Waterend Barn a charming place to stay, whatever the weather and season. With best wishes, Colin and Maggie Gordon.

Very clean and well equipped. Beautiful country location.
Lovely cottage in a very rural location. Very close to a public footpath which takes you on a wonderful walk through fields of sheep. The kids loved the walks and equally exploring the three floors of the cottage. Really great size. Charming and well decorated throughout. We cooked and ate in some nights, the kitchen has all the cooking equipment you could need, and ate at nearby pubs the other nights. Very relaxing setting. Constant traffic of horses and dog walkers at the road to the front of the cottage, which was fun, but other than that very quiet and peaceful.Good value for money. We would love to go again. Thank you for a refreshing and nature filled retreat.
Great guests and we are delighted they enjoyed their stay.
