Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Christmas for the family. This is the second year we have booked carrot cottage for a Family get together. The cottage is 6 bedded with the most comfortable double bed we've ever slept in and 4 beds in the other room. Accomodation is available in the other smaller cottages so anyone wanting more privacy can stay there. The kitchen has plenty of equipment and all you need for Christmas dinner. A 10 minute walk from the reservoir banks and 5 minutes to the pub, what more could you want?

A late review, but wanted to share our fantastic stay at Broccoli Bottom. We rented out all of the cottages: Lettuce Lodge, Fennel Folly, Carrot Cottage, Mangetout Maison, Parsnip Place as well as two rooms in the main house for two nights for ourselves, our family and friends for our Wedding at Normanton Church and Manton Village Hall. We stayed in Lettuce Lodge. Sally was really helpful on the lead up to our stay providing information we needed. The rooms were perfect (loved the vegetable themed curtains!) and a fabulous location for us. The lodges allowed us to all have our own privates spaces as well as give us the opportunity to have a fabulous the night before the wedding meal outside Carrot Cottage over looking the fields. Thank you so much for this stay.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Mange Tout apartment for 2 nights. It was perfect for a family of 4 with 2 bedrooms and a lovely little outside area. The views were great, beds comfy. We visited the local pub, Horse & Jockey, and had a lovely dinner. Also had 2 brilliant breakfasts in Oakham - The Larder & The Hungry Birds. Topped our visit with a day in Stamford and lunch in the coutyard of The George and Rutland Aqua Park. Fab couple of days- thank you.

On our return visit this year to Broccoli Bottom we stayed in Lettuce Lodge & Parsnip Place. Fantastic accommodation again, we could not fault this place in anyway. We had our dogs with us again & we especially loved the grass area around Parsnip Place. We look forward to returning again soon.

Just back from our second visit to Broccoli Bottom this year and it just gets better. We arrived on Monday and stayed until Friday as we were down from Scotland on a fishing trip to Rutland Water. Having phoned Sally our host to say we might arrive late and she let me know she might not be there but the keys would be in the door and everything was ready. The whole booking process was flawless and the accommodation was fabulous. We will be back

We have just returned from a short break staying in Parsnip Place. Lovely one bedroom place ideal for the two of us and our dog. Fab shower! Very quiet setting. Lots of lovely walks from the doorstep. Easy access to all of Rutland Water. Pub in village a short walk away. Highly recommended place to stay.

After being double booked for a place to stay by a bookings company, Broccoli Bottom very kindly accommodated me at extremely late notice. It was a great place to stay and I especially enjoyed the very comfortable bed. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

We had a lovely stay at Parsnip place, ideal for a 5 night stay for 2. We ate out a couple of nights and catered in for 2. Very quiet area and we still have loads to see so may well be back another time.

We stayed as a party of six on a fishing trip to Rutland Water. Our three apartments were perfect, comfortable and well equipped. The grounds are very attractive and Broccoli Bottom is perfectly sited for Oakham and Uppingham. Sally was very helpful with the booking process and any questions we had. As regular visitors to Rutland we would recommend Broccoli Bottom and we will be back.
