Welcome to Manton Lodge Self-Catering! We offer two tranquil, modern and comfortable self-catering apartments, in the heart of rural Rutland.
Located in the southern wing of an 18th century ironstone farmhouse – and recently updated – the apartments have their own private entrance, are surrounded by NGS gardens and sit in more than 100 acres of privately owned rolling pasture.
The Valley View Apartment on the first floor, sleeps 2 (3) and comprises: a Master suite / sitting area (with sofa-bed); galley kitchen; and en-suite bathroom. It overlooks the gardens and offers sweeping views of the Chater Valley to the south and west.
The Valley View Apartment: £380 – £520 per week
The ground-floor Garden Apartment sleeps 2, and comprises: a Master bedroom; large bathroom; and separate kitchen-diner. The bedroom opens directly onto the southern terrace, and offers wonderful views.
Garden Apartment: £450-£560 per week
The apartments have been recently updated with new fixtures and fittings, and have been renovated throughout. Both can be set up as super-king doubles or as twin bed rooms.
A feature of the house is its delightful garden, developed over more than 40 years by the current owners, and open regularly as part of the National Garden Scheme. Guests are invited to explore the terraces and walkways, or just sit and relax on one of the many benches. With a small ornamental pond, specimen trees and a myriad of flowers it’s an oasis of colour and scent, and of course it acts as a haven for birdlife.
Manton Lodge offers easy access to Rutland Water with all its amenities. The house is walking distance to Manton village and the thriving Horse & Jockey pub. While nearby are the ancient market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford, famous for their public schools and stone architecture, and offering plenty to do and see.
Manton Lodge gardens and surroundings: –
Both apartments look directly onto Manton Lodge’s stepped gardens and guests are invited to relax on the terrace or explore the tranquil setting below. They extend to more than an acre of lawns, shrubberies, flowerbeds, walkways, York-stone terraces and kitchen gardens, with features including specimen trees and shrubs, rose gardens and an ornamental pond with fountain. The gardens have been a labour of love for the present owners, who designed and developed them over the course of more than forty years. They are open regularly for the National Garden Scheme and were recently featured in Rutland Pride magazine.
Beyond the gardens, the house is surrounded by more than 100 acres of private pasture grazed by sheep and horses. The landscape rolls down to the little Chator River, a tributary of the River Welland, with views to the Ridlington ridge beyond. Over the past decade several thousand trees have been planted and guests are invited to explore the spinneys around the house. As well as these walks, Rutland Water is easily accessible from the house, either on foot through Manton Village (15 minute walk) or by bicycle. For those with longer legs – or on two wheels – the Rutland Water Bird Centre, the Lyndon Top Nature Reserve and the Osprey Centre are approximately two miles away along the water’s edge.
There is ample parking available for cars; also for boats and bicycles on request.
