The Nest is a newly-converted barn with super king bed (or twin beds), large shower room, fabulous kitchen and living area (with double sofa bed). We are two mins from everything Rutland Water has to offer and only 4 or 6 miles respectively from market towns of Oakham and Stamford.

Perfectly suited for an activity break on the Water or just to escape and have a quiet few days. We are happy to provide a select seasonal menu for dinner to save you cooking after an exhausting day exploring.

My husband and I have just returned home from our second stay at The Nest. We loved it so much the first time we had to come back and this time did not disappoint. We'd highly recommend a stay here for couples looking for a lovely little getaway. Alex and Kate are great hosts and the place is lovely. We'll definitely be visiting again!

Response from Kate & Alex:
Hi Ben - I totally understand and appreciate your comment about pricing. We are however listed independently so our prices that much lower when booked direct. If you are interested in coming back, you can find us by searching for The Hide or The Nest in Rutland. The website is rutland cottages dot co dot uk (the system may blank this out!). Best, Alex

We stayed for 4 nights with our 5 month old, beautiful location. Kate & Alex were on hand for local information and recommendations. Its ideally placed to explore Rutland Water and the surrounding areas. The accommodation is superb, we would highly recommend!

Very warm welcome from helpful and friendly hosts. They willingly shared their local knowledge which among other things ensured we cycled round the lake in the best direction! The kitchen was surprisingly well equipped - we always bring our own small sharp knives but didn't really need them. The only extra thing we'd have liked is a few more mugs as there were 3 of us who like frequent hot drinks! The shower was spacious and blissful especially after an energetic day's cycling and the bed was incredibly comfortable.

Alex was a great host, and The Nest where we stayed was beautiful and perfect for a quiet weekend getaway for two. It is a great location, we visited Rutland Water and Burghley House, and there are lots of great places to eat nearby. We would certainly recommend Alex's cooking though if you fancy a quite and intimate evening meal - delicious! We would stay again and recommend to friends.

I can't live without fresh air, my wellies and good glass of red wine - oh and it would be pretty boring without my husband, Alex and puppy, Scamp! Alex and I have a love of food and an active lifestyle.
We have recently moved to Rutland to fulfil our dream of running a small holiday let business - we love it and hope you will too.
