Perfect for family get togethers whatever the season, this wonderful and spacious property boasts lovely countryside views and a large and delightful garden just 5 minutes' drive from the shores of famous Rutland Water. Fishing, sailing and a host of waterborne activities are all popular here, and make a charmingly picturesque backdrop to gentle waterside rambles. Set on the fringes of the market town of Oakham (1˝ miles), with its fine shopping, galleries, restaurants, coffe shops and inns, Kimbles Cottage lies within easy reach of a wealth of attractions including Uppingham, home to antique shops and secondhand bookstores as well as the famous school (4 miles), and nearby Rockingham Castle, built by William the Conqueror and owned by the same family for the past 450 years. Stamford, whose historic streets are the film location for many a costume drama, Burghley House (setting for the renowned horse trials) and Geoff Hamilton's lovely garden at Barnsdale are also well worth a visit. Farm shop 500 yards, inn 1˝ miles.
