We have just stayed at Primrose Hall over the Easter weekend and what a fabulous place it was! The best self catering accommodation we've ever been in. It had everything we needed and more! We couldn't believe it when we walked in to see wine, local beer, fruit, box full of different teas and even an Easter Egg waiting for us! There were plenty of towels, toiletries & kitchen equipment. The owner came round to see us on the first evening and gave us great advice over where to visit locally. Thank you for your wonderful accommodation and hospitality, we will definitely be staying again and recommending it to others! Empingham is beautiful and Rutland is brilliant. Make sure you see the ospreys at Lyndon visitor centre (spring/summer), Normanton church, Barnsdale gardens and Burghley house, gardens & deer park! We also did a fishing experience with Rob Waddington (Rutland fly fishing) and caught trout for tea which was delicious! There's so much to see and do in the area and Primrose Hall is the perfect Base to explore it from!
Fabulous location for our short stay over the New Year 2016/17, for us to see friends in a nearby village.
We are a family of 5, two adults, two kids and our dog. Primrose Cottage looked perfect for us and we weren't disappointed. The cottage looked lovely in the photos, but it's even better in real life with warm, welcoming, cosy decor and furnishings.
We were welcomed by Simon, the owner, who was onsite when we turned up and he gave us a run down of the building's history, explained where everything was and showed us the welcome package...a coffee table laden with info on the local area, a bottle of wine, a large bowl of fruit and even a chocolate cake...fabulous!
Our dog was made to feel very welcome, with towels and blankets for us to use.
Everything has been thought out brilliantly by this wonderful couple, making our stay very comfortable. The shower room is laden with towels and shower gel, which is great and my kids were over-the-moon to discover WiFi in the cottage (very important when you're 12 and 15!!).
The local pub, The White Horse, was also lovely and we ate there on our first evening...its literally 5 mins walk from the cottage.
I would very much recommend this cottage as a great place to stay and I really don't think you'll be disappointed.
We booked Primrose Hall for a Christmas Break. The owners were more than happy to let us bring our ferrets with us too. On arrival the house was extremely well equipped with everything you could need, including lots of information on the surrounding area, places to eat etc..
We spent a wonderful 4 nights here and would throughly recommend it to anyone, and will look to come back here again.
We had a very warm welcome and it was clear that considerable thought had been given to make our stay very comfortable.
The cottage made an ideal base for the run-up to our daughter's wedding. The cottage is spacious and well-located with easy access to Stamford, Rutland Water and the A1. There were helpful guides re local pubs, restaurants, walks and tourist attractions and the cottage was relaxing and homely 24/7
We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Primrose Hall. Catherine the owner was extremely helpful with all of the booking details and enquiries that I made. Although we didn't get to meet her, she seems like a lovely lady.
Everything was beautiful and clean and there were lots of finishing touches such as fresh flowers, plenty of tea and coffee, fresh milk and even a bottle of wine and some dog treats for my dog.
There is a folder with lots of information about the local area and details of walks for all abilities. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy everything this beautiful county has to offer.
Primrose Hall is equipped with everything that you could possibly need - a real home from home. When we come back to this area, we will definately stay here. Thank you Catherine.
