“Perfect cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just arrived home after a couple of very restful nights at this delightful cottage. Spotlessly clean with modern furnishings and gorgeous linen on the comfortable beds; even free wifi to keep our teenage boys happy. Took our bikes, cycled round the reservoir, pint in the pub and dinner at the lakeside Italian restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday...as I said perfect cottage in a perfect location. Thank you

“Quite Perfect!”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have had a wonderful week in Postbox Cottage. It is without doubt the best equipped cottage we have ever experienced. I wracked my brains to think of something that Elizabeth might have missed but apart from a Lamborghini and a butler couldn’t think of anything! It is really comfortable, spacious, well designed and stylish and in a very peaceful and pretty situation in the middle of the village.

The pub round the corner has really friendly staff, serves lovely food and great pint of Everard’s Tiger.

We were really happy there, me cycling around the local quiet lanes whilst my husband floated above the countryside in his glider! Thank you so much for a great holiday

“Unwind in 5 star accommodation in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A delightful cottage in an idyllic village location. Lots of extras provided for a comfortable stay. The information book gives details about the area and is most useful. The cottage is walking distance to Rutland Water and a short drive to the historic towns of Stamford and Oakham. Dogs are welcome here and are catered for with dog bowls and towel!! A place to unwind and relax.

Cottage was clean and comfortable with lots of thought put into it by the owner to ensure that guests have a wonderful welcoming and relaxing stay. Village location with pub and lakeside walks minutes away. Owner was very helpful.
