Farmhouse
Manton Lodge Farm is a beautifully-positioned 18th-century stone farmhouse set in more than 100-acres of privately owned rolling grassland in rural Rutland. It nestles in a fold in the landscape and boasts far-reaching views across the Chater valley. The property lies on the edge of Manton village and is a short distance from Rutland Water (1km). We offer two comfortable and modernized apartments. Each is completely self-contained, can be set up with single beds or as a super-king double, and is accessed via a separate entrance at the side of the property.

We offer two comfortable and modernized apartments. Each is completely self-contained, can be set up with single beds or as a super-king double, and is accessed via a separate entrance at the side of the property. The Garden Apartment is located on the ground floor of the modern southern wing of the house, overlooking the garden, and has direct access to the terrace via a French door in the bedroom. It is accessed by a separate entrance at the side of the property. The accommodation comprises: a light and airy Double Master bedroom (available with either super-king double or twin bed set-up) with flat-screen TV; Kitchen-Diner with fully equipped kitchen including four-ring electric hob; microwave, fridge, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, armchairs, dining table and dining chairs; large modern en-suite bathroom with bath and over-bath shower. The Master bedroom has a French door opening directly onto a delightful stone terrace with seating area overlooking the garden and with wide views of the Chater Valley beyond. It is centrally heated throughout. The Valley View Apartment is located on the first floor of the modern southern wing of the house, overlooking the garden, and has unrivalled views. It is accessed by a separate entrance at the side of the property and offers easy access to the garden. The accommodation comprises: Master Bedroom – available as either a super-king double or with twin beds – with flat-screen TV; open plan ‘Suite’ with sofa-bed (available as a bed for an additional guest) and small dining/seating area; En-suite Bathroom with full bath and over-bath shower; Fully-equipped galley Kitchen with combination microwave oven, fridge, 2-ring electric hob, toaster and kettle; and washing machine. It is centrally heated throughout. Free broadband Wi-Fi is included. The Garden Apartment offers wheelchair access. A wonderful feature is the property’s acclaimed garden. Developed over more than 40 years by the current owners, it is open regularly as part of the National Garden Scheme and has been featured in Rutland Pride magazine. It extends to more than an acre of lawns, flowerbeds, York-stone terraces, shrubberies, stepped walkways, and kitchen gardens. Features include specimen trees, stone statues and urns, rose gardens, and an ornamental pond with fountain. With a dazzling array of different blooms it’s a blaze of colour throughout the growing season and of course acts as haven for birdlife. Beyond the gardens the landscape is grass pastureland – filled with lambs in the spring – which rolls away to the little Chater River at the bottom of the valley. Several thousand trees have been planted in the past few decades creating some interesting walks through the various spinneys and copses. The garden is easily accessed from the apartment. For those with longer legs – or a bicycle – Rutland Water is a short distance (1km) away offering a network of trails and a host of other activities and attractions including sailing, fly-fishing, bird-watching etc. The property is within easy walking distance of the Horse & Jockey pub in Manton which serves excellent food and from here you can pick up the trail around the reservoir. Well- behaved dogs may be accommodated on request. More

We had a great mid week break in Manton a good base to explore the area. However please be aware when booking this property that there are 2 apartments. We booked the Garden Apartment based on the the location the detailed information about the apartment and the facilities in the apartment. When we arrived we were allocated the Valley View Apartment upstairs. While this was a nice place it was not what we had booked it did not have the same facilities and on that basis was a bit disappointing . Tripadvisor you should be more open about what is being booked. You confirmed our booking as Garden Apartment but this is not what we got!!!

A great location with easy access to Rutland Water’s walking and cycling circuit. Plenty of walking other routes. Central to Oakham & Uppingham (3 miles) and Stamford 20 minutes by car. Small villages like Brooke with a glorious church that featured in a film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice. The apartment cosy & charming. We stayed for 4 weeks Oct / Nov. The central heating was good with plenty of hot water, the layout was good with adequate cooking facilities and storage spaces though no freezer. Bedroom was perfect to wake to views of the countryside in a super king size bed and a good size bathroom. It was quiet, though I’m not sure if that had anything to do with the upstairs apartment being vacant. Reminds us so much of the Cotswolds with the honey colour stonework, weather excellent. This location and apartment filled all our requirements it was ideal.

We have spent 5 wonderful days in "Garden Apartment": it is very comfortable and beautifully decorated (a home, definitely not the usual Ikea-furnished-impersonal holidays rentals!) . We specially enjoyed the very big bedroom and spacious bathroom , and loved going round the amazing garden ( we could have stayed there all day!), carefully and lovingly created and well-tended by the owner. Watching the horses and sheep in the fields around the house was a pleasure. The owner is very nice and helpful, the area well worth a long visit (specially for bird-watching). We strongly recommend this holiday rental and will come back! Thank you, Caroline, for your hospitality! Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce très bel appartement, confortable et soigneusement décoré, situé dans l'aile d'une très jolie maison ancienne, entourée d'un MAGNIFIQUE jardin anglais, ainsi que de prairies avec chevaux et moutons. La propriété se situe tout à côté du lac de "Rutland Water", célèbre pour ses balbuzards ( rapaces pêcheurs) , et proche de la petite ville d'Oakham, où l'on trouve toutes sortes de commerces alimentaires (excellentes boucheries et boulangeries). La propriétaire est charmante. Une excellente adresse! Patricia et Philippe (Vincennes - France)

Home away from home. Stylish, à la cottage apartment with stunning views and amazing location for long walks just moments from Ruthland Water. Very pleasnat and helpful owner. This farm with animals around would be great fun for kids too. We enjoyed our stay and exploring the area. Very peaceful place to recharge your batteries. Extremely comfortable bed and cute bird feeder outside our window are our favourites! Thank you Caroline

What a find! Warm welcome, beautiful gardens, spacious and light bedroom with large family bathroom and sitting room. My husband and I wanted a cosy, indulgent weekend away and Manton Lodge Farmhouse was simply perfect. Caroline couldn't have been easier to communicate with or a more helpful host. Fantastic location for visiting Rutland Water and the surrounding countryside. Fabulous walks directly from the door. We would recommend anyone to stay here and will definitely be back! Thank you Caroline for a memorable weekend. What an absolute treat.

We absolutely loved Manton Lodge Farm, and a bonus we loved the owner! Such a beautiful place and just as discribed. So quiet and peaceful. Clean, spacious and fully equipped. The pictures do not do this beautiful place justice. Mrs. Burnaby-Atkins is so personable and friendly. We just loved her and her farm and outstanding flower gardens. We could tell much work and love had been woven into the landscape. Manton Farm is very close to so many villages with one within walking distance. Rutland Water is very close as is many castles and historic towns.We would love to return, you can never see enough of England can you?The Gilmores, North Carolina, USA

We had a wonderful third (annual) week staying at Manton Lodge Farm. We love the cosy Gardent Apartment with it's splendid views out across the immaculate gardens to which Caroline, the charming owner is devoted. Blessed with better weather this year we were often able to sit out at meal times enjoying the scenery and wildlife before us. Conveniently situated within walking distance of the village with it's excellent pub, the apartment is a great base for a variety of rural and cultural pursuits. Cycling either around the shore of Rutland Water or along beautiful, quiet country lanes (bit hilly), passing through numerous pretty villages, walking with our Flat-coat, bird watching with numerous bird hides around the Water and the Osprey viewing centre all tick our boxes. And then of course there is the superb Trout fishing on Rutland Water which is what initially drew us to Rutland. For those looking for more leisurely activities there is a wealth of history to explore in the region, a visit to the old coaching town of Stamford should be a must. Whilst a visit to the late Geoff Hamilton's Barnsdale Gardens will be a joy for many. Already looking forward to next year's visit. + +

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in the garden appartment. It is in a beautiful location overlooking stunning farmland and within easy walking distance of Rutland Water, ideal for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. Bike hire is available from the waterside only a short drive away and the lovely town of Stamford is 15 minutes drive on country roads, with the nearby Burghley house and gardens well worth a visit. The owner and family were very friendly. We have no reservations about recommending the rental.
