Cottage
Dick's Cottage is situated in the heart of Rutland in the village of Cottesmore which is near the market towns of Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham & only 5 miles from Rutland Water. A beautiful thatched grade two listed building, awards a 4 * Gold rating by Visit England, sleeps 8 people, the cottage has been refurbished throughout to the highest of standards & would make an ideal place to stay if visiting the area for walking, fishing, birdwatching, cycling, or just a break away on your own or with the family. Please note that the twin bedded room leads on through one of the master bedrooms when making a reservation....Dick's Cottage is situated in the heart of Rutland in the village of Cottesmore which is near the market towns of Stamford, Oakham, Uppingham & only 5 miles from Rutland Water.
