COVID 19 UPDATE: the cottage is still taking bookings and is completely private and deep cleaned between guests. It’s a great place to escape. Gamekeeper Lodge is a characterful, modern and luxurious self catering cottage; and forms a totally private annexe to our Grade 2 listed thatched cottage in the heart of Rutland. The property was designed in 1795 by John Nash, who also designed Buckingham Palace and overlooks the original thatched game larder. Situated only 2 miles from Rutland Water.
This is a fabulous double room (with own entrance) two mins drive from Rutland Water. Newly renovated and perfectly located for all that the Water and surrounding villages have to offer. Oakham and Stamford (4 and 6 miles away respectively) are wonderful for whiling away a few hours once you've worn yourselves out cycling, sailing, walking or kayaking. A delicious breakfast will be served in our breakfast room. We are more suited to adults but can offer a travel cot if required.
“Alex et Kate étaient de super hôtes. Tout dans notre week-end était de première classe. Le Linney était super confortable, impeccablement propre et privé. Le petit déjeuner, cuit à la perfection et des conseils locaux pratiques nous ont mis en place pour une merveilleuse journée d'exploration du magnifique comté. Je recommanderais certainement et reviendrais !!”
The townhouse is located on a quiet residential one way street. Permit parking is available for one car. Oakham has stunning historical architecture, i.e a castle, quaint independent shops, pubs and restaurants are moments from the door. A short walk from the railway station. It is ideal for couples or families. A short drive is Rutland Water and is the largest man made lake in Europe 26 miles circumference and hosts many outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and bird watching.
