    Barrowden 0.7 miles. Approached via rural country roads, you will come to a delightful thatched cottage nestled in the linear village of Wakerley, in the East Midlands. The property has a quirky style décor, with old stone walls and exposed beams showcasing the level of character this property has. Stepping inside, you will come to a spacious sitting room where you can look forward to unwinding into the evening with a warming coal-effect gas fire to provide that extra bit of warmth during the evening. Walk through to the kitchen which houses a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily rustle up a delicious meal, to be enjoyed at the dining table over a well-deserved glass of bubbly. Retire to double bedroom where you can get some much needed rest for the day's ahead, with a delightful en-suite bathroom to support. Take a refreshing drink out to the spacious enclosed garden where you can have a spot of alfresco dining whilst your pet stretches its legs. This property is in a fantastic location, surrounded by other very similar 'chocolate-box' style villages in the smallest UK county of Rutland. Within very easy access of Rutland Water, perfect for sailing, walking, running and cycling enthusiasts. Surrounded by a range of pathways for those keen walkers, cyclists and even just nature lovers among you to explore this lovely rural area, with various wildlife attractions. With easy access to a number old market towns such as Uppingham, Stamford, Oakham, even Lincoln and Peterborough with their cathedrals. You are also within very close proximity to Burghley House, famous for its annual Horse Trials. Return to Bumble Bee cottage for a relaxing evening in front of the warming fire with your loved ones.

    Miss Brady – 1 Oct 2020
    " The secure garden was a plus for us as we brought our dog with us. We would recommend for a quiet getaway in the countryside. "
    Mr Cole – 1 Oct 2020
    " It was compact and very warm with lovely views over sheep in the neighbouring field. It is ideally situated for all the lovely villages and Rutland Water. It would have been nice to have some more history of the property. It is on a busy road where traffic travels fast; we suggest parking on the wider path to the west. Unfortunately it is in great need of TLC decoratively and has clear problems with damp / condensation as shown on the cob walls. It also needs much more attention given to cleaning, especially upstairs and particularly in the current situation. We were reluctant to touch certain areas, particularly around the bed and bath. With the many spiders and webs it is obvious that the pest repellents are not working. Furthermore as regular customers we find more and more properties where the owners are content to accept the cleaning of previous occupants withount checking this themselves. "

    " I have spend months trying to communicate with you to cancel the holiday, which you cancelled in March and forced me to lose the money or rebook. I have had no replies to emails, other than a standard we are busy and will get back to you asap. Which you never did. I managed to speak to a very pleasant lady about wanting to cancel the booking but she could not help me as she was reservations and I needed to talk to customer service, this is what she told me. I tried in vain continuously to get through to customer service but this was also unsuccessful. You took final payment from my visa without letting me know you wanted to and you did not, to this day, issue me with a receipt for the payment you took. So I have spoken to Visa and they are dealing with this. I feel your actions and inactions over this time have been inconsiderate and neglectful towards your clients. I would have no future interest in booking with you in the future. "
    Miss Clarke – 1 Aug 2020
    " It's location is ideal for the local towns and villages and to see my sister in Northampton. We visited Stamford and Market Harborough which were well worth it and Geoff Hamilton's garden (on my Mom's wish list) It has several peaceful walks on the door step which are by the river, great for our dogs. As is the enclosed garden which is a bit of a sun trap. The surrounding area and village of Barrowden are very picturesque. "
    Mrs Westen-baugh – 1 Jul 2020
    "Only thing I can mention really. Lovely little cottage, ideal for two and dogs. Great village and pub short walkthrough sheep fields, close to all the historic towns. Recommend."
    Mrs Warwick – 1 Feb 2020
    " Really enjoyed break and cottage - only reason didn't rate top comfort was because I found bed to be a little soft for us - but that's a personal choice. Found information left for us at cottage really useful- and we visited recommended places and were really pleased with out days out. "

    "The heating wasn't working on arrival , which once we raised the issue with the owner of was fixed for a time and only played up once or twice following. The electricity cut out as we were cooking and we soon learned that the main oven trips the mains when on with other appliances. Hate to be that person as well but the wi-fi was incredibly slow!! And as much as we tried both the bed and sofa were just incredibly uncomortable. We flipped the mattress on night 3 which helped a bit but we both ..."
