View across Chater Valley from Manton Lodge Self Catering in Rutland

Manton Lodge Self Catering in Rutland is situated midway between the historic market towns of Oakham and Uppingham, in the heart of rural Rutland, England’s smallest county and one of its best kept secrets.

The historic 18th century ironstone farmhouse sits at the edge of Manton village, overlooking the lovely Chater Valley. The house enjoys magnificent, sweeping views across the valley and sits in more than 100 acres of privately owned rolling grassland.

We offer two comfortable and high quality self-catering apartments in the southern wing of the house. Overlooking the Garden and Valley, both are furnished to a high standard and have separate access from the main house.

The beautiful gardens of Manton Lodge Self Catering Rutland

Guests are invited to enjoy the spectacular gardens that extend to two acres of lawns, shrubberies, flowerbeds, terraces, walkways and kitchen gardens, with features including specimen trees and shrubs, a rose garden and a pretty ornamental pond that lies at the heart of the garden. The gardens have been a labour of love for the present owner who has designed and developed them over the course of forty years and opens them annually for the National Garden Scheme. They were recently featured in Rutland Pride magazine.

There is ample parking available for cars; also for boats and bicycles on request.

The County of Rutland

Manton Lodge makes an ideal base for exploring the ancient county and its many attractions. Rutland Water, Europe’s largest man-made expanse of water, and famous for its trout fishing, bird-watching, wildlife nature reserves and blue-bell woods, well as facilities for sailing and cycling, is within easy walking distance.

The Golf Club is just 5 minutes away with stunning views over Rutland Water. 9 and 18 hole courses, accessible on a pay as you play basis.

Other activities that can be enjoyed locally include horse-riding, clay-pigeon shooting and paragliding.

Uppingham and Oakham, both charming market towns with a wealth of beautiful architecture and abundant bucolic charm, and each famous for its historic public schools, are just three miles away, while the wonderfully preserved and beautiful Georgian town of Stamford, a popular location for period films and TV shows, is just 10 miles away, sitting in the shadow of Burghley House, one of the finest Elizabethan mansions still in existence.

Manton village lies just south of Rutland Water and is a pretty little village with some very charming and quaint ironstone cottages, an unusual and very attractive 12th century church as well as a cosy and thriving pub – the Horse & Jockey – within six minutes’ walk from Manton Lodge.
