Le logement

Halliday's Folly, named as such by locals a hundred and fifty years ago, is a unique and historic building built in 1850 by Thomas Charity Halliday, a stonemason and corn merchant. Thomas Halliday restored and repaired churches all over the country and was in the habit of returning home with fragments of medieval stonemasonry which with which he decorated his workshop. Back in the day Mr. Halliday was a successful man employing some 47 men and 4 boys. His son, Samuel Fancourt Halliday was a one time mayor of Stamford.
The Folly has been recently restored and converted into two spacious holliday cottages. The first has two bedrooms each with ensuite facilities, a large kitchen, living room with sofa bed creating additional sleeping space which has separate shower room. The second is a spacious studio apartment with fully fitted kitchen, bedroom area, living room with sofa bed, shower room. The outside space makes the best of this iconic building, also providing a private garden, patio areas and adequate off road parking.
Greetham is a working village three miles from Rutland Water, eight miles from Stamford and surrounded by beautiful and interesting places to visit such as Barnsdale Gardens made famous by TV gardener, Geoff Hamilton. The village boasts two award winning pubs, The Wheatsheaf and The Plough. Both offering excellent menus together with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

What a lovely property. And a fantastic location to explore Rutland from. The property caught our eye and didn’t disappoint, it’s beautiful. The village location is very convenient for walking and has some great pubs. Sue was a fantastic host. We’re hoping to return!

The barn was lovely, clean, nicely decorated and in great condition. It felt like home straight away. The barn is near a couple of lovely local pubs and very close to Rutland water and a number of other days out that we plan to go back and explore! Sue was a wonderful host, communication was easy and pleasant, and she added some lovely touches. We always knew she was nearby if we needed anything, but she was not at all intrusive. The barns are a credit to her.

What a fabulous find! Halliday's Folly is a unique old building which just has been restored in a very sympathic way by the host, Sue. The renovation has been done to the highest standard and everything about it and the adjoining "Small Barn" (which we had a look at for future trips) is perfect. Communication was great, and we received a wonderful welcome. The host lives close by so is very accessible if needs be. The village has 2 pubs with food so we were spoiled for choice - however the cooking facilities provided in the accommodation were also very comprehensive. I loved the antique bath and the quirky feeling of the place. I am a host myself and so can appreciate just what goes into making a holiday let special, and, believe me, this is! The village is very close to Stamford, Burleigh and Rutland water.

I live alone on the same site as my holiday accommodation, Halliday's Folly. I have renovated the buildings in order to create the holiday cottages and very much enjoyed doing that. I have been told I'm a good host - around to help but not at all intrusive. I think that what makes me a good host is that I like people coming and going. I'm not so much of a traveller any longer but love visiting friends and having them to stay, cooking good food, wine and conversation.
