    Great cottage, very clean with helpful owner. Hot tub and wood burner brilliant, in very peaceful surroundings. Good pubs within walking distance, all dog friendly. Fully equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Having control of the central heating temperature would have been appreciated. Highly recommended.

    The cottage was as described. Spotlessly clean and equipped with all household items. Hot tub was a lovely extra as was the week of good weather. Lovely remote location, very peaceful and relaxing. The flip side being that amenities were a car ride, which was fine for us. We visited the nearby Foxton Locks, Rutland Water, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray. Perfect for a relaxing break, thank you.
