The cottage was beautiful

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at The Green in Market Overton. The whole family had such a great time, the cottage was beautiful, clean and spacious and a great location for Watersports on Rutland Water and exploring the local area.

We would 100% return in the future.

Lovely property, great location

Very clean, well equipped and maintained property. As a family of 4 we found it spacious and perfect for our stay. Well equipped kitchen and loads of books/DVD's we could have stayed a month. Excellent WiFi. Owner was very helpful and replied promptly to any correspondence - damage deposit returned very quickly. The location is ideal for cycling and visiting Rutland water, we enjoyed a meal in the nearby pub and were only a short drive from Oakham for all necessary amenities. A very enjoyable break at a great property, thanks.

Beautiful cottage, tranquil village, lovely area.

The cottage was beautiful and very well equipped with everything we needed. The owners had thoughtfully provided amongst other things milk, fresh bread, butter, jam and biscuits all of which tasted amazing. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the cottage was warm and the heating was easy to control. Extensive film and book selection as well as some games mean that whatever the weather you will be fully occupied. Rutland water and Oakham are close by and well worth a visit.

A Real Gem

We stayed here for a week whilst moving house, just so we had somewhere as a bit of a 'bolthole' so the decorators and plumbers could do some work on our new purchase. This cottage is so well equipped and comfortable, with such a pretty conservatory/diner to the rear overlooking the garden. We really enjoyed returning in the evening after working on the house, or during the day just for a break. The owner, Pat, is so lovely and friendly. We were treated to a 'welcome pack' of local bread and jam, plus biscuits and a lovely bottle of wine. Everything is provided to ensure your stay is perfect.

Excellent location, comfortable and cosy.

The Rutland area is ideal for friends and family to visit, both from the North and South ( I live overseas and was also attending a wedding at Rockingham Castle ). I have stayed in similar cottages 3 times over the last few years, but The Green certainly was above the others. Great attention to detail with the finishing details and I wanted to bring the kitchen back. Feels much more like a home than a holiday rental. Great "welcome pack" upon arrival, including award winning bread.Pat pre booked my "wedding taxi" for me and after a slight mix up with my dates I stayed an extra night. That,s service and flexibility which is becoming rarer these days. This is an area often overlooked in the UK, gentle walks, great pubs, serving delicious food, interesting gardens and both National Trust and English Heritage sites to visit . I will definitely return as there is nothing not to like.
