The Hayloft is adjacent to our secluded farmhouse. We are surrounded by rolling fields grazed by sheep and horses. We keep pigs, ducks and hens. The house is down a quiet country lane without passing cars, apart from farm traffic. The light, airy flat has its own private entrance. Park your car and walk into the old Stable Yard where you will find outdoor seating in a quiet sheltered area with room to stretch out and eat out if you want to. You enter the spacious private tiled entrance lobby, then upstairs to an airy double bedroom with sofa, dining table and chairs, Freesat TV and bookshelves. The fully-fitted kitchen is separate, with oven/hob, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. A separate bathroom has a full-size bathtub with shower and loo.

The fully-fitted kitchen is separate, with oven/hob, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. A separate bathroom has a full-size bathtub with shower and loo. It is ideal for two people who want to chill. Cycling is excellent on the local roads, with Café Ventoux just 3 miles away at Tugby. Take time to explore Rutland Water, Oakham, Uppingham and the beautiful unspoilt villages in between. If you want to bring your own horses, we have stabling and grazing for a modest extra cost. If your work brings you to Leicester, Nottingham, Market Harborough or even closer, the Hayloft is perfectly located for commuting, if you don't fancy staying in town. Weekly or monthly guests are very welcome. Local wedding or family celebration? The Hayloft gives you your private space to unwind and relax. Fresh eggs and sausages or bacon from the farm await your arrival in the fridge. We also provide a starter pack of bread, butter, milk, tea and coffee with fresh linen and towels. We can supply delicious ready meals, home cooked here on the farm. Just let us know when you book and we can send you a menu. We can put these in the fridge or freezer to await your arrival. If you want to know which local pub serves the best food, or where to walk, ride or cycle, we are only too happy to share our local knowledge. Parking is secure and there is loads of storage space for bikes, canoes and other clobber. Despite our rural location, we are fortunate enough to be able to offer fast broadband, so streaming of video content and Skype is all possible. We really look forward to welcoming you to The Hayloft.More

About the neighbourhood
“High Leicestershire” has hid its light under a bushel for too long. We have some stunning hilly countryside with stone villages and quiet lanes. Just up the road is Tilton on the Hill, with its village stores and pub. Slightly further afield are Belton in Rutland, Illston and Billesdon. All have great character and pubs to visit. The beautiful country towns of Oakham, Uppingham, Market Harborough and Stamford are all within 20 minutes' drive. Rutland Water, stunning walks and some of the best cycling are all on the doorstep. We can help you plan hikes by bike or on foot. You can even bring a horse. Just let us know in advance! (There will be an additional charge for this).
Getting around
Because we are 1.5 miles from the village, a car is essential. For evenings out when you would rather not drive yourself, we can give you the number of a great local taxi service. Better still, why not order one of our ready meals? Made fresh from locally-sourced ingredients, the food will be waiting for you in the fridge or freezer when you arrive. During your stay, you can also top up with sausages, bacon and eggs from the farm.
