  1. Had an amazing time at Lesley’s farmhouse for a farewell party for a friend! Beautiful and secluded location, close to Rutland water, and Lesley was an ace host. Thanks!

  2. Lesley was kind and responsive and the place was exactly what we were after. A nice quiet farm cottage with the mod cons, the photos of the private garden area do not do it justice. Lesley provides top quality meat and eggs from the farm and the log fires were something the whole party enjoyed. We hope to return and enjoy the wonderful surroundings again

  3. We loved our stay at Lesley’s. Her home was perfectly as described - nothing ‘fancy’, but the perfect home from home. Lesley was really accommodating and friendly, and the house had everything we needed. As a group of 8 guests, there was enough space for socialising but also the perfect setting for some quiet time. The house was clean and fully equipped. We will be back!

  4. Fabulous accommodation in such beautiful countryside. Apart from the attractions of Rutland Water the whole area is so rural and outstanding beauty.

  5. Beautiful and expansive countryside expands the property. It is most definitely a place that describes 'get away from it all' perfectly.
    Thank you very much for having us all. We hope to see you again.

  6. We have just spent a fantastic bank holiday weekend at America Lodge, a comfortable and spacious farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills. The location of the lodge is incredible and we made full use of the garden. There were 8 of us staying (4 adults, 4 kids) and there was ample space for us all. The bedrooms all had plenty of storage and the kitchen table was fantastic to eat and to play games at!! Rutland itself is a beautiful county and we made the most of the incredible weather and spent most of our weekend at rutland water. We ate at The Noel near Whitwell for lunch which was delicious and used the Rutland Balti house in Oakham for a takeaway which was really good (there is a menu in the dresser drawer!!). It was a perfect location for 2 families who live at opposite ends of the country (Leeds and Ipswich) to meet in the middle!! Thank you Lesley!!

  7. We came here 8 years ago pre-kids and always meant to return. This time we had 5 kids between 3 families and it was just as good. The kids loved being able to go outside to play building dens and the parents loved the fact that the tiled area meant that mud in the house wasn't a problem.
    The house is near Oakham, which is worth a visit, and there is a great pub at Braunston which is within walking distance.

  8. A real gem! We have just had a family get together at the lodge which included adults and children. The lodge is perfect being both comfortable and spacious which a huge kitchen. The rural location was perfect for exploring with the children. We all enjoyed ourselves and are talking about visiting again .
    Lesley was very kind and understanding when family arrived late due to a long journey and traffic conditions. She popped by on Saturday morning and had a lovely chat with my mother in law .
    Would definitely recommend the lodge.

  9. Just returned from a family reunion at America Lodge. The rustic farmhouse was warm and comfortable and we really appreciated the log fire and very efficient central heating when the weather was cold and wet. Lesley was an excellent host and was there to welcome us and answer any questions we had.

  10. This was our fifth stay at America Lodge! It's great for families to sit around the huge kitchen table or in front of the open fire in the lounge. Every time we come to Rutland we find new things to do!

  11. Quite a quirky farmhouse and a great place for a multi-generational Christmas holiday. It's very spacious and we loved the log fires - which we really appreciated when the snow fell and the temperatures plummeted. Lovely rural setting. Great quality meat and bacon from Lesley's farm.

  12. We had a lovely weekend relaxing with children and grandparents.
    Kids loved collecting their own eggs for breakfast.
    Will be back...
