It is more than 100 miles from Heathrow to this hotel, and the journey would take almost 2 hours. A taxi would be extremely expensive.

Other than taxi, is there an alternative mode of transport from Heathrow Airport to Barnsdale Hall Hotel?

You could take a National Express coach from Heathrow to Leicester and take a taxi from there.

Or take the Underground to Kings Cross St Pancras, and catch a train from Kings Cross to Peterborough and change there for a train to Oakham.

If you are interested in either of these options please let us know on what date and time your flight arrives, and which terminal at Heathrow.

Maybe as much as £400 one way for the first option but you might be able to negotiate a fare with a (reputable) mini cab firm.

Heathrow > Leicester > Barnsdale. See National Express website for specific fares but maybe approx £50 return (+ / - depending on date / time) and £50 each way for the taxi.

A dummy booking for Thursday 7th Feb shows that you can go from Heathrow to Kings Cross to Peterborough to Oakham (via underground and rail) for £25.50, one way, depending on the time of the trian you choose. A taxi from Oakham station to Barnsdale Hall would, I'm guessing, be less than £10.00.

Travelling the other way - from Rutland to Heathrow with a local taxi firm - I pay between £100 and £120 each way for two of us.

The best bet is the tube to Kings Cross, train to Peterborough change to Oakham and a taxi from there. Taxis wait outside Oakham Station. I have mentioned this on previous posts to your enquiry.

You will understand - also on earlier posts - that once at Barnsdale you are a bit stuck without a car,

What I and others wrote in early December to you is still true.
