“Gorgeous house, fantastic owners”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

17 of us stayed for three nights as we had a wedding to attend in Oakham on the Saturday and decided to make a mini break out of it.

Katie was incredibly helpful before we got there with arrangements, and whilst I wasn't the first to arrive my friends commented on how lovely she was when then arrived and helpful at pointing things out.

There is a beautiful lake on site, which we sat by reading, having an evening drink and playing French boules - thankfully we stayed during an April heatwave. There is also plenty of walking to do around the area, and with Rutland water only a 15/20 min drive away there's plenty to do and see.

We would love to go back again as it worked perfectly for our needs - and having three dishwashers DEFINITELY helped, and thankfully we're more than welcome :)

Thanks again Katie x

“great house for a large gathering”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

booked this without knowing the area, but because Stamford is roughly in the centre of the country - but we were all very positively surprised. The town is lovely - old stone and easy to wander around, and the countryside is rolling, not flat like the fens, plus you have Rutland Water close by - the house itself is very large - all the rooms are generous - several seemed to have extra beds in them - and the upstairs reception room is a great advantage - plus the children loved all the toys and games about the place. We felt the owners went to great lengths to make sure we were all suitably accommodated - even putting children's books out in relevant rooms - and lots of advice and guidance on the area. We will very much hope to come back - it was a great hit

“Wonderful weekend stay for a large group of 17”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Piper House last weekend for a pre Christmas getaway and were not disappointed. The property was gorgeous and beautifully furnished/decorated (it was very hard to pick which bedroom we wanted to stay in as they were all so lovely!). It was also the perfect size for the 17 of us, there was so much space - even more so than we originally thought from looking at the photographs when booking. The house was extremely well equipped too, with everything we could possibly need to cook for our large group in the kitchens, and lots of extra details like books, DVDs and games in the different rooms.

Katie was extremely friendly and helpful from my very first inquiry and sent lots of useful information about directions, local amenities and restaurant recommendations nearby. I would definitely recommend Piper House and I know that everyone else I stayed with feels the same. None of us wanted to leave at the end of the weekend!

“Halloween in Stanford.... oooooh”

We stayed Piper House over Halloween, Are party of family was 6 couples with toddlers & babies. Matthew & Kate the owners are very friendly, the kids loved the home with horse field next to the property, outdoor stace with couple of pigs down the lane.The house offered space as we had large number of people over 4 days. All rooms are very nice & clean with family feel about the place. The home is about 10 minutes from Stamford town with local market & nice park for the kids. Nene Valley Railway (Wansford Station) is also short drive for dayout with the kids. All I have left to say is thanks very much for great time.

Lovely converted barn - given oodles of space - suitable for family reunions or friends get togethers. Plenty of hot water. House was very toasty even when cold and wet outside. Friendly owner. Relaxed environment. £11 taxi to stamford . Think we will be back ...
