Rutland

Situated in the heart of the rural east midlands, Rutland is England’s smallest county and a real hidden gem. It offers a peaceful cottage holiday set amongst beautiful countryside with plenty of activities, things to do and places to see.

One of Rutland’s most popular attractions is The Rutland Water Nature Reserve, with 1,000 acres of wildlife rich habitat. When you visit the reserve you can gain a unique appreciation of how important this nature reserve is with over 30 bird watching hides, nature trails and two visitor centres. Thanks to a varied programme of seasonal events, you’ll find plenty to enjoy all year round including its famous ospreys which visit in the spring.

Along with its varied wildlife and natural beauty, many choose to come here for its historic attractions. Oakham Castle is perhaps the greatest example of Rutland’s heritage. Built in the 12th Century, it offers a fantastic display of Norman architecture and the rather unique sight of hundreds of horseshoes that adorn the wall of the Great Hall!

Oakham itself is a pretty market town and previous winner of Britain in Bloom; it has a lovely market place and regular farmers markets, cafes, restaurants and good pubs.

If you want to go exploring whilst keeping the children entertained, try a trip to Rocks by Rail. Covering 19 acres of reclaimed quarry, railway tracks and nature trails, Rocks by Rail describes itself as a “journey back in time”. Enjoy nature trails, train rides, workshops, diggers and more at this great family-friendly attraction.

Rutland is perfect for those after a little peace and quiet from their holiday. Exploring the tranquil nature around Rutland Water is a fantastic way to pass the time. Similarly, Rutland’s open expanses and nature trails are perfect for those looking for a more active exploration of the region, where all the usual outdoor activities are on hand; the region is perfect for country walks and gentle cycle routes, watersports on one of Europe’s largest reservoirs; Rutland Water. There are enough family-friendly attractions to keep everyone entertained on their break. In short, a break in Rutland is well worth considering and has something for all the family.
