The master bedroom has an adjoining wet room. There is a family bathroom with a deep bath and an overhead shower. The entire ground floor boasts a heat pump fuelled underfloor heating system which together with the fine linens and duvets, makes for a perfect place to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.


After a day of “discover Rutland” and for real tranquillity take your favourite read, a blanket and a glass of….down to our lower meadow and listen to the sparkling stream as you relax under the alders and willows. Keep an eye open for a wheeling red kite or the tap of a woodpecker as the birds sing for you and the mallard swim in the stream.

As the summer sun puts its hat on, venture inside the sitting area, recline on the sofas and enjoy the cosy log burner together with a favourite board game or movie to keep all the family entertained.

Travelling on the A1 leave the A1 to the North of Stamford taking the signs for Empingham and Exton at the junction for the Woolfox Depot. Continue for a mile and turn right for Exton at the first crossroads winding down the lane and across the bridge over the brook. After the sharp double bend look for the last telegraph pole on your right and you will find Cuckoo Barn drive (pictured). We are 2.7 miles from the A1.

Traveling from the West leave the Oakham bypass on the A606 to Stamford after a mile you will see a lovely view of Rutland Water on your right. At the top of the first hill turn left at Barnsdale Lodge Hotel and drive down an avenue of mature beech trees. Take the first right down a single track road and continue straight on, the road improves so don’t go into Exton or turn off for Empingham. After two miles look for the first telegraph pole on your left and you are here!
