The showerRutland offers a vast number of attractions and activities to experience such as sailing, fishing, cycling, golfing, bird watching and rambling - all set with the stunning backdrop of Rutland Water. Numerous stately homes, including Rockingham Castle, Burghley House, Belvoir Castle and the late Geoff Hamilton's famous Barnsdale Gardens are all within striking distance. There is a huge choice of traditional country pubs and restaurants as well as the more upmarket Hambleton Hall and Michelin star Olive Branch pub, offering a wide variety of affordable dining.
