Welcome to Manton Lodge Self-Catering! We offer two tranquil, modern and comfortable self-catering apartments, in the heart of rural Rutland and walking distance from Rutland Water.
Located in the southern wing of an 18th century ironstone farmhouse the modern-built apartments have their own private entrance, are surrounded by NGS gardens and sit in more than 100 acres of privately owned rolling pasture. The property is located on the Rutland Water cycle path and is within walking distance of the south shore.
The Valley View Apartment on the first floor, sleeps 2 (3) and comprises: a Master suite / sitting area (with sofa-bed); galley kitchen; and en-suite bathroom. It overlooks the gardens and offers sweeping views of the Chater Valley to the south and west.
The ground-floor Garden Apartment sleeps 2, and comprises: a Master bedroom; large bathroom; and separate kitchen-diner. The bedroom opens directly onto the southern terrace, and offers wonderful views. The apartments are well furnished and can be set up as super-king doubles or as twin bed rooms.
A feature of the house is its delightful garden, developed over more than 40 years by the current owners, and open regularly as part of the National Garden Scheme. Guests are invited to explore the terraces and walkways, or just sit and relax on one of the many benches. With an ornamental pond, specimen trees and a myriad of flowers it’s an oasis of colour and scent, and of course it acts as a haven for birdlife.
Beyond the garden is the rolling green countryside of the Chater Valley, with a number of private walks around the fields and through the spinneys on the estate.
Manton Lodge makes an ideal base for exploring the ancient county of Rutland and its many attractions. Rutland Water, one of the largest man-made expanses of water in Europe, and famous for its trout fishing, bird-watching, and nature reserves, is within easy walking distance. Manton village is home to the Horse & Jockey pub; while nearby are the ancient market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford.
There is ample parking available for cars; also for boats and bicycles on request.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Rutland – England’s smallest county and best kept secret!
