Patio and BBQ area

Set in pretty countryside on the banks of the Grantham canal in the beautiful Vale Of Belvoir, the cottage makes a perfect country retreat.



French windows in the lounge open ontoSome friends arriving for tea! decking over the water, where you can sit and feed the ducks and swans and watch the dragonflies as they dart among the rushes.  Or you can  enjoy a glass of wine as you sit and watch the sunset over the Vale.  The canal is now a haven for lovers of wildlife, walkers and cyclists alike.

Places to Visit

Thereís plenty to do and lots to see in the area.  Belvoir Castle, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, is only 4 miles away, and hosts many events throughout the year. If youíre interested in stately homes, there are several National Trust houses in the area, Belton House, Chatsworth House and
 Woolsthorpe Manor to name but a few.

The market towns of Melton Mowbray, Grantham and Newark are half an hourís drive away, as is Nottingham, a must for shopping or a lively night out.

After exploring the Vale, you can go a little further afield and enjoy the Peak District, Sherwood Forest and Rutland Water, all within easy reach, and for the more energetic thereís the National Watersports Centre and the National Ice Centre in Nottingham.
