Rutland’s best kept secret!
In 2014, as we celebrate our 40th year in business, we are opening our most ambitious project yet – a retail plant centre called ‘Garden Inspirations’. We hope it will offer just that; focusing on a wide range of plants and core elements of gardening.
We are extremely proud of our brewing expertise at The Grainstore Brewery. But not only do we offer great ales, but great food too!
Fishing, birdwatching, walking, cycling, water sports – you name it – Rutland Water has it! Not only does it bring vital water resources for the surrounding regions, but it also provides a fantastic day out for all the family.
Deene Park is a wonderful eclectic mix of architectural styles, having evolved over six centuries and grew from a substantial quadrangular-plan medieval manor into a Tudor and Georgian mansion, whose main front now faces south across the Park and Lake.
