“Home from Home”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A high quality cottage and the best equipped we had ever stayed in. Sticky End felt just like someone's home which can be difficult with holiday rental properties. Martin and Julia achieved this very well. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they had thought of every need their guests may have had. The A - Z covered every topic and question we could possibly have. Eg - We weren't left wondering what to do with the rubbish and when to put the bins out. We had a very relaxing week which was just what we needed.

“Superbly equipped and comfortable cottage in a scenic area”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a delightful week at Sticky End, helping to prepare for our son's wedding at nearby Exton Park. It was a very busy week, but Sticky End was a great base as we knew that anything we needed was there, and would work! We didn't have time to visit as many local pubs as we would have liked, but can recommend the Sun Inn in Cottesmore itself, the Blue Ball in Braunston, and Finch's in Hambleton. Also, whatever you do, visit Hambleton Bakery - it's only about a mile from the cottage, but there are shops in several local towns too. Lovely memories of enjoying a 'Ploughman's Parcel' and coffee at the table in the sunny little courtyard at the cottage. Thanks very much Martin and Julia - I hope we can come back one day.

Liked best: Everything needed for the stay was provided.
Liked least: The lounge was slightly dark - but inevitable with an old thatched cottage!

Many thanks for taking the time to post your positive feedback. Delighted that we could accommodate you & were glad to have the E Type Jaguar parked in our drive! We very much hope to welcome you back to Sticky End, or indeed our other thatched cottage, Little Thatch near Uppingham, in the future when hopefully it will prove a more relaxing break for you.

“Beyond Expectations!”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a truely wonderful find. From the moment you step into the Sticky End cottage you're overwhelmed with the attention to detail with the homely decor & antiques displayed throughout this little gem. We have stayed in some lovely holiday cottages, and this is up there with the best! It is spotlessly clean throughout and everything has been thought of to ensure you have the perfect stay.
Thank you Martin & Julia for sharing this beautiful property with us.

“A superbly equipped cottage in an attractive Rutland village”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We booked Sticky End to be near Rutland Water for Birdfair and were delighted to find such an attractive cottage, full of interesting antiques and decorations. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and this ranks as one of the best appointed.
The village of Cottesmore is ideally situated for visiting Rutland Water, with its many nature reserves. For the keen birdwatcher we'd also recommend making the trip to Frampton Marsh near Boston. But there are many other local places of interest - Burghley House, Barnsdale Gardens, Oakham, Stamford, etc.
We've already booked for next year!
