Situated in the village of Cottesmore & only 5 min away from Rutland Water, is a 17th ct picture perfect thatched and recently refurbished cottage. With original features such as low ceilings and exposed beams, wood burning stove, the cottage provides accommodation for up to 5 people with deceptively large living areas. Free Netflix and WiFi provided. We welcome up to 2 well behaved, extremely cuddly & house trained dogs (please note an extra dog stay of £20 /). New Covid-19 rules added.

The space
The cottage has a deceptively large living area, with separate seating around a second decorative stone fireplace as well as a tucked away reading corner and a conservatory in which to enjoy a cup of tea. The dining room nestles between the kitchen, lounge and conservatory – bright and airy for leisurely breakfasts and perfectly practical for having an evening meal for up to 6 people.

Free parking (on driveway & off-street).

Upstairs, there are two beautifully presented bedrooms with crisp linens and fluffy towels. The third bedroom is situated downstairs with direct access to the garden (not recommended for younger children due to distance to other bedrooms).

The cottage is situated in a quiet lane only a stone’s throw away from the village pub and shops. With plenty of activities to keep visitors of all ages busy around Rutland Water, the Bee cottage is the prefect place where visitors can relax and put their feet up after busy days exploring England’s smallest county.

Dogs are very welcome, and the cottage garden is suitably enclosed. Dog owners of large breeds should note the fence at the back is 3 foot high. An additional charge of £20 will apply for bookings with dogs.
