Many of our guests have returned to us over 12 times during this period, and Trip Adviser have awarded us a 'Certificate of Excellence' Lodge farm dates back to 1635, overlooking the medieval hamlet of Aunby it is located on a hill top with views of rolling countryside, fields and forests to all four aspects. The peace and tranquility that surround the cottages helps you to unwind away from the pressures and stresses of day to day living. Even the wi-fi reaches out into the garden, we have recently had an Electric Charging Point Installed for our guests who have embraced sustainability. It is the ideal location for a 'get away from it all' holiday or short break. We live in the seventeenth century farmhouse on site, and bought Lodge farm in the year 2000 since then have worked tirelessly to create a sanctuary for wildlife, rare birds, butterflies and bee's. We have created a vegetable and herb garden to die for, with herbs also planted in the flower borders for guests to help themselves. Richard is a keen bee keeper looking after the apiary, chickens go about their business ensuring that fresh eggs, vegetables, and honey are almost always available. 2007 saw the addition of the wildlife lake and ponds to the flower meadow. Attracting a variety of regular visitors ranging from ducks, red kites, woodpeckers and damsel and dragon flies, to deer, hares and badgers. (Keen bird and bat enthusiasts are regular guests.) Strategically sited benches and summerhouses are inset into the copse of native trees and around the lake and meadow enabling guests to enjoy the simple pleasures of watching nature at it's finest; whilst sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset on the western horizon. Many guests enjoy an evening stroll along the bridle path nearby. The cottages can be booked as a whole or individually. All properties are fully self contained, and centrally heated making them fully available all year round. Cottage 1 features a fully fitted shaker style kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, double fan oven with extractor fan, microwave and all the utensils to cater for either a light lunch or dinner party during your stay, also a dining area to seat 8, leading off the dining kitchen is the oak beamed lounge with comfy leather sofa's and foot stool also to seat 8, a large flat screened TV and DVD for those nights in and a coal effect log burner sits in the oak fireplace giving the room a cosy focal point. Off the hallway you will find the newly re-furbished fully tiled shower room with high rise toilet, vanity basin and easy access luxury shower, also downstairs is one of the double bedrooms with walk in wardrobe (ideal for elderly guests) and laundry room. Upstairs is the second double bedroom, family bathroom and twin bedroom. The Cottage benefits from dedicated parking areas, and the all important high speed internet (wi-fi) connectivity, (so rare in the countryside,) and mobile phone connectivity is not an issue ensuring that if you need to be in contact with the outside world, you are! To see more please visit our own website for loads of photos and the all important Trip Advisor customer reviews. Clematis Cottages consist of 3 cottages and annex which can accommodate 14 in comfort, or 16 with the use of the sofa bed in cottage 2. (Please call Kaye directly to chat about details on holidays/breaks for larger groups.) We always try to ensure that when parties are sharing the facilities available that their wishes are respected. For our younger guests there are 2 cots and high chair available. Clematis cottages make the ideal venue for those very special family /friends reunions, and there is always a quiet sanctuary for Grandma and Grandpa to retreat to! The award winning town of Stamford, Rutland water, Burghley house and the Elizabethan Tolethorpe hall (venue for the open air Shakespeare productions) are all only a few minutes drive away. Fine dining is on our doorstep with the '6 Bell's' at Witham on the hill, the 'Olive Branch' pub of the year 2013 in nearby Clipsham, and the 'Jackson Stops'country Inn at Stretton. Nearby Ryhall, is home to the local post office and general store, good for the Sunday paper together with the 'Wicked Witch' restaurant and the locals Green Dragon pub serving fresh pizzas. The river Gwash which runs through Ryhall marks the start of many stunning walks, in fact 19th Century poet John Clare is said to have walked his girlfriend from Great Casterton to Ryhall along the banks of the river on summer evening after a day working at the Lime Kilns in nearby Pickworth.
