BLOG (Hotels in Rutland)
There are so many reasons to visit the beautiful county of Rutland – this idyllic rural destination offers the ideal antidote to the hustle and bustle of daily life. Situated in the heart of the East Midlands, the smallest county in England is very easy to access from all directions and is the perfect location for short breaks in the UK.
Greetham Valley in Rutland offers a choice of superb accommodation nestling in a lovely rolling landscape, plus an excellent selection of activities on-site and nearby. Guests can choose to stay in our contemporary AA 3* Hotel, which has 35 en-suite bedrooms, or for those who prefer self-catering, in one of our three bedroom VisitBritain 4* Rutland Lodges or our country cottage. All Greetham Valley’s accommodation is just a few minute’s walk from the two 18 hole championship standard golf courses, the Lakes and the Valley, our nine hole par 3 Academy course and Driving Range.
Also on-site, guests will find archery, outdoor bowls, petanque, fishing (coarse, trout and salmon in dedicated lakes), quad biking and 4×4 driving. And if that is not enough, nearby Rutland Water offers a host of amenities including birdwatching (the Osprey Project is an absolute must-see), sailing, windsurfing, flyfishing, cycling – the list goes on! The new Rocks by Rail Living Museum just a few minutes’ drive from Greetham Valley is a superb attraction for all the family, whilst some of the castles and stately homes of Hidden England are close by – Burghley House, Rockingham Castle, Belvoir Castle, Grimsthorpe Castle to name a few. For the gardeners amongst you, Geoff Hamilton’s Barnsdale Gardens, now owned and beautifully extended by his son Nick, are five minutes away, plus Gates’ Nurseries and Ashwell Nursery should both be visited.
