“Simply perfect ...”
Reviewed 16 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

What a find! Warm welcome, beautiful gardens, spacious and light bedroom with large family bathroom and sitting room. My husband and I wanted a cosy, indulgent weekend away and Manton Lodge Farmhouse was simply perfect. Caroline couldn't have been easier to communicate with or a more helpful host. Fantastic location for visiting Rutland Water and the surrounding countryside. Fabulous walks directly from the door. We would recommend anyone to stay here and will definitely be back! Thank you Caroline for a memorable weekend. What an absolute treat.

“You will not be disappointed”
Reviewed 27 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We absolutely loved Manton Lodge Farm, and a bonus we loved the owner! Such a beautiful place and just as discribed. So quiet and peaceful. Clean, spacious and fully equipped. The pictures do not do this beautiful place justice. Mrs. Burnaby-Atkins is so personable and friendly. We just loved her and her farm and outstanding flower gardens. We could tell much work and love had been woven into the landscape. Manton Farm is very close to so many villages with one within walking distance. Rutland Water is very close as is many castles and historic towns.We would love to return, you can never see enough of England can you?The Gilmores, North Carolina, USA

“Another week in Paradise”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful third (annual) week staying at Manton Lodge Farm. We love the cosy Gardent Apartment with it's splendid views out across the immaculate gardens to which Caroline, the charming owner is devoted. Blessed with better weather this year we were often able to sit out at meal times enjoying the scenery and wildlife before us. Conveniently situated within walking distance of the village with it's excellent pub, the apartment is a great base for a variety of rural and cultural pursuits. Cycling either around the shore of Rutland Water or along beautiful, quiet country lanes (bit hilly), passing through numerous pretty villages, walking with our Flat-coat, bird watching with numerous bird hides around the Water and the Osprey viewing centre all tick our boxes. And then of course there is the superb Trout fishing on Rutland Water which is what initially drew us to Rutland.
For those looking for more leisurely activities there is a wealth of history to explore in the region, a visit to the old coaching town of Stamford should be a must. Whilst a visit to the late Geoff Hamilton's Barnsdale Gardens will be a joy for many.
Already looking forward to next year's visit.

“Almost Faultless”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in the garden appartment. It is in a beautiful location overlooking stunning farmland and within easy walking distance of Rutland Water, ideal for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. Bike hire is available from the waterside only a short drive away and the lovely town of Stamford is 15 minutes drive on country roads, with the nearby Burghley house and gardens well worth a visit.

The owner and family were very friendly.

We have no reservations about recommending the rental.
