“A very special getaway”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We are new to this part of England. We found the accommodation charming and the surrounding countryside outstanding. Whether in a car, on foot or on a bicycle, there is plenty to see and do around Rutland Water. Get out and enjoy it. The lanes are quiet for cycling, the lake has amazing birdlife and then there is the fly fishing! Visit this very special corner of Rutland. We can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful, peaceful setting and very comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Booked Valley View apartment for four nights to visit Rutland Water and surrounding area. Very comfortable apartment with wonderful views and so quiet. Caroline very helpful and keen to ensure our comfort and that the heating was suited to our needs. Cooking facilities and equipment basic but perfectly adequate and as described on website. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return. We were self-catering but noted from visitors' comments in guest book that those who had stayed on a b & b basis had left extremely favourable comments about the quality of the breakfast.
