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.
