We stayed in Fennel Folly for a couple of nights over New Year. The accommodation was ok, the hosts were friendly but my wife and I were rather underwhelmed, given the stunnig reviews from so many other people. What we experienced was nothing special, it was a rather ordinary self catering apartment.

A group of us stayed over the weekend. I was in the main house and had a wonderful double room looking out over a field of sheep. Colin and Sally(ably assisted by Mary) are wonderful hosts of this top rate B&B and looked after us splendidly. Breakfast was first rate and the location was spot on for our walking weekend....

Go! Stay with Sally and Colin. Their hospitality is second to none - we couldn't have felt more welcome. We were delighted with our cottage - it was cosy and homely - just what we needed for a relaxing trip to beautiful Rutland. Sally's breakfast was delicious - you won't go hungry. Ideally located really close to Rutland Water and...

We were in Fennel Folly, which is on the first floor, up a few easy steps. All windows were velux ceiling but despite no 'view' as such from them Fennel Folly was light and airy. It had large double glass doors so we could see outside to the fields with rabbits munching the grass and from the little balcony level...

We wanted somewhere quiet and within easy reach of the nature reserve. It couldn't have been better. the house was spacious, clean, well maintained and with the sun still warm enough to sit outside we took advantage of the private patio area.

We booked in for two nights in order to attend a wedding nearby. The room was large and although not inexpensive, seemed to be worth the price. Disappointingly, the bed creaked noisily with every movement and was as hard as a board. Oddly, breakfast on the first day had to be taken at 09.00, or not at all. Worse still,...
