Description

Located on the borders of Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire, this delightful holiday property offers a peaceful retreat.


Located next to the borders of Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire, this delightful holiday property, attached to the owners’ home, offers a peaceful retreat with views across rolling countryside. The property has air-conditioning and a delightful lawned garden. The historic and picturesque town of Stamford is close by, and was recently dubbed the ’finest town in England’. It has artisan cafes, shops and restaurants, and has formed the backdrop for television costume dramas including ’Middlemarch’, and the 2005 film ’Pride & Prejudice’. Explore Burghley House, which was built and predominantly designed by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 1587. The house is a splendid example of Elizabethan architecture and offers beautiful gardens to explore. It is, of course, also home to many events throughout the year, including the prestigious Burghley Horse Trials in September.
Offering boat hire on the River Nene, Oundle is close by. Surrounded on three sides by the river, it is a beautiful stone built market town, which has served the surrounding valleys since Saxon times. Peterborough, with its beautiful Norman cathedral is just 20 minutes away, and offers great shopping and eateries. The East of England Showground is just outside of Peterborough, home to shows and exhibitions including The Shire Horse Show, National Motor Home Show and many others.
A little further afield is the university city of Cambridge where you can be inspired by the many beautiful museums and art galleries. To make your trip easier, there’s a great park and ride system available too. For those looking for peaceful walks and unspoilt scenery, Rutland Water is just a 20-minute drive away and offers great leisure activities including a water side stroll, sailing and windsurfing classes, and bike hire. Sacrewell Farm Park is close by and is fantastic for both children and adults, it has many attractions including its majestic Shire horses and Hamerton Zoo Park. For those seeking faster thrills, Silverstone is also within easy reach.

    The name of the cottage proved to be so apt. A really cosy charming abode set in lovely countryside. It was full,of character and was also very well equipped with all necessary equipment for the visitor. Our hosts had really thought of the visitors needs and we wanted for nothing through our stay. The location is a little off the beaten track but nearby villages were available when any additional stocks were required. Particularly noteworthy are the excellent pubs and eateries where not only was outstanding food was available but it was generally very reasonably priced. We enjoyed not only the immediate countryside which is provided with defined walks and beautiful views, but also explored many of the lovely market towns, gardens and great houses and estates that can be reached from the cottage. This is exceedingly comfortable accommodation with on site helpful hosts that will not disappoint, we would recommend it to all. Comfort, Rest and peace are a given in such a charming cottage.
