Whitwell is a village in the rural county of Rutland. It can be found about four miles north east of the town of Oakham, on the northern shores of the large reservoir at Rutland Water. The village of Whitwell makes the somewhat dubious claim of being twinned with Paris. In actual fact, the Mayor of Paris did not actually ever agree to the twinning. The villagers wrote to the Mayor of Paris requesting the twinning and giving only a short deadline. As no response had been received by the deadline, the villagers unilaterally declared the village to be twinned with Paris. They erected wooden road signs showing this and these were later replaced by metal ones by Rutland District Council. Whitwell is actually one of the smallest villages in the county of Rutland, there are only 19 houses! There is, however, a Public House and a Hotel (The Whitwell Hotel). Accommodation in Whitwell can also be found in the form of self catering accommodation at Pear Tree Cottage. Bed and breakfast can be had at The Noel@Whitwell; The Noel@Whitwell is the only place in the village serving food. There are also barbecues in the summer, as well as a Beer Garden & Patio area.
