Rutland is England's smallest and
oldest county. 'Multum in Parvo' 'Much in Little', couldn't be a better motto as
you'll see as you discover the delights of this little gem of a county. Easily
accessed from all UK towns and just 90 minutes from London, just off the main
A1M you'll discover England as it used to be. Thatched cottages, rolling
countryside, lovely pubs and picturesque villages 'The Cotswolds without the
Crowds' is another justly deserved description.
Our Rutland Bed and Breakfast, a
former lodge house to Barnsdale Hall is right on the shores of Rutland Water and
on the borders of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northants and
close to Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, Yorkshire and easily
accessed from London.
