Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This lovely cottage is ideally placed for exploring the historic towns of Stamford, Uppingham and Oakham.

Converted from former stables, these four holiday cottages, Copper Beech Cottage (ref 19603), Mushroom Cottage (ref 23202), Apple Cottage (ref UKC1547) and Game Cottage (ref UKC1548) are situated within a walled garden, adjacent to Normanton Park Hotel. The setting is one of immense beauty overlooking Rutland Water. Normanton Park is set on the south shore of Rutland Water and provides the ideal holiday base to visit all this attractive area has to offer. There are many activities such as fishing, cycling, sailing and windsurfing available locally and the Rutland Belle glides across the water daily.

    Very basic, wouldn’t call it a cottage, felt like we were sitting in a garage, shower was a trickle, no comfort

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I’m sorry that Apple Cottage wasn’t how you envisaged it to be, I’m not quite sure why it wasn’t when the photos and the description on the website are exact, down to the cakes and flowers for your arrival. The majority of people who stay find it to be a charming, sweet little cottage...I hope you managed to explore the area even though the weather wasn’t good, never makes a good holiday with bad weather.

    The gardener was strimming from 7.30 am on a Saturday morning. There were cob webs in the corners of the bathroom with spiders in situ. There was no freezer even though it is advertised as containing a fridge/freezer, no wifi even though it is advertised as having wifi. No sign of any bike shed but is advertised as having them. Welcome pack was not very welcoming with 2 tebags, some doddy homemade cupcakes and some milk in a little bottle. No nearby shop so remember to take your own stuff. No frying pan so had to fry an egg in a saucepan. Beautiful location with the reservoir a short stroll away and the hotel has a nice bar where food is available and they have wifi.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; With regard to your stay, I am pleased that you enjoyed the beautiful location and close proximity to the Rutland Water. I'm sorry that you were disturbed Saturday morning by the Gardener, he usually doesn't work on Saturdays, but due to the bad weather on the Friday he was unable to garden, hence coming on Saturday morning, but not arriving until 8.30, not 7.30. As I understand, when asked to stop he did so and returned later when the cottage was empty so not to disturb. The Wi-Fi unfortunately is intermittent. There are two village shops close by, one in walking distance in the next village, Edith Weston. It is an excellent village store, offering fresh produce, fresh bread, cakes, wines, papers, post office, dry cleaning etc. The other village shop is in Empingham, again well stocked. For large supermarkets, Waitrose, Tesco, M&S, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s etc. there is Oakham and Stamford, both less than 5 miles. I'm sorry the cakes weren't to your taste, others found them delicious, and they had been bought that morning from the Marie Clare fundraiser, as were the fresh flowers. We do have a freezer available for all to use, which is in a communal area. With regards to bikes - the majority of people are happy to stand their bikes next to the cottage in the recess, but we do have a bike store that on request bikes can be stored in. I am always contactable on my mobile, which is the same number that was used previously by you. It’s such a pity a call wasn't made, as the above could have been very instantly resolved. I hope that you will visit again.

    An excellent location and ideal facilities for a short break or longer stay. Everything you need in the cottage to make your holiday free and easy with the bonus of stylish furnishings in spacious yet compact living.
