About this property

Barrowden 0.7 miles. Approached via rural country roads, you will come to a delightful thatched cottage nestled in the linear village of Wakerley, in the East Midlands. The property has a quirky style décor, with old stone walls and exposed beams showcasing the level of character this property has. Stepping inside, you will come to a spacious sitting room where you can look forward to unwinding into the evening with a warming electric woodburner to provide that extra bit of warmth during the evening. Walk through to the kitchen which houses a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily rustle up a delicious meal, to be enjoyed at the dining table over a well-deserved glass of bubbly. Retire to double bedroom where you can get some much needed rest for the day's ahead, with a delightful en-suite bathroom to support. Take a refreshing drink out to the spacious enclosed garden where you can have a spot of alfresco dining whilst your pet stretches its legs. This property is in a fantastic location, surrounded by other very similar 'chocolate-box' style villages in the smallest UK county of Rutland. Within very easy access of Rutland Water, perfect for sailing, walking, running and cycling enthusiasts. Surrounded by a range of pathways for those keen walkers, cyclists and even just nature lovers among you to explore this lovely rural area, with various wildlife attractions.

You are also within very close proximity to Burghley House, famous for its annual Horse Trials. Return to Bumble Bee cottage for a relaxing evening in front of the warming fire with your loved ones.

    Beautifully clean when we arrived, the Christmas decorations were truly magical to see when we opened the cottage door. The cottage was warm and cosy and it was the perfect place to eat and relax after a long day exploring rutland with our beagle Bailey, who loved his stay too ! The village is wonderful, very quiet and you really feel like you are away from everything. The homeowners in the village and in Barrowden were all so friendly. The walks and views are breathtaking, from the woods to the fields beyond. We ventured to the Royal Oak in Duddington across the fields and stopped at the old church at Tixsover for a stop along the way. When we returned to the cottage we sat in the cosy lounge, cooked our Christmas Dinner and played party games at the table by the Christmas tree. The weather was blowing a gale outside but you wouldn't know when you were inside the cottage, you could hardly hear the wind. We loved it so much we are hoping we might be in with a chance to spend Christmas and New year in the cottage in 2024. Thank you for making Christmas super special.

    Other thing I was disappointed about was even though it says fridge but usually they have a small freezer part at top. We lost some of our shopping due to this
