Holiday Rental House
This house has been completely modernised to provide quality accommodation in the beautiful town of Uppingham. Its a short drive to Rutland Water, Stamford and all the charming villages and places of interest in picturesque, unspoiled county of Rutland. We have a driveway for one car and there are no parking restrictions here anyway. It is a short walk up the hill to the High Street to visit the historic town's antique shops, independent clothes and gift shops etc and restaurants The interior of the house has just been finished to a very high standard with new boiler, kitchen, bathroom with new shower etc. Downstairs is light, airy and open plan with an additional sun lounge at the rear.

Its a short drive to Rutland Water, Stamford and all the charming villages and places of interest in picturesque, unspoiled county of Rutland. We have a driveway for one car and there are no parking restrictions here anyway. It is a short walk up the hill to the High Street to visit the historic town's antique shops, independent clothes and gift shops etc and restaurants The interior of the house has just been finished to a very high standard with new boiler, kitchen, bathroom with new shower etc. Downstairs is light, airy and open plan with an additional sun lounge at the rear. There are 2 double bedrooms however the 2nd one is on the small side but accommodates a double bed, and a hanging space for clothes. The first bedroom is much larger and has a fitted wardrobe and cupboard. There is an open plan lounge and kitchen and sun room to the rear of the house. The house is in a quiet residential area. The town and all the eateries, wine bar and pubs and independent shops are within walking distance ( up the hill!). Outside a lot of work has been put into terracing and planting out the back garden. It is an ongoing project because the small area behind the beech hedge at the top of the steps is still to do and will be finished in the Spring. In the meantime you can sit on the steps and enjoy the sun when it shines. There is free High Speed WiFiMore

Interaction with guests
As we only live further down the street we are usually on hand to help out in any way. We can be flexible about check in and check out times too. There is a key safe should you be arriving really late! We enjoy meeting our guests to give them keys and show them the house but after that the place is your own unless you need any assistance or local knowledge!

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is just a few yards down from the Town Hall and at this end of the street is largely residential. Open countryside is reached easily in different directions - there is a circular walk via a public footpath to Bisbrook reached at the end of the street by the cricket field.There is now a footpath to the beautiful Ironstone village of Lyddington where medieval Bede House nestles next the church and is an English Heritage site. Rutland water is very close - take a ride on the Rutland belle or hire bikes and cycle round the lake. There is now even a beach and swimming area at Rutland Water in the Summer!
How to get there
We are easy to find on a Sat nav being minute away from Uppingham Market place further down the same street. The Town hall is on the left after the shops and we are a few yards further down but on the opposite side of the road. We often have guests who are using Uppingham as a base to meet up with friends from other parts of the country as it is so central and easy to get to. It is just off the A47 which links Leicester and Peterborough, and on the A6003 which connects Kettering with Oakham. So from the North or South you can use the A1 and the the A47. From the West Midlands on the M6 then the A14 to Kettering is a good route, then up the A6003 following signs to Oakham
