“Book a room... You will be pleased you did!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

What a surprisingly lovely two nights we have just spent at the hilariously names Broccoli Bottom!
We booked both b&b rooms last minute and took the only two nights they had available this week.
What luck! Two lovely rooms, perfectly clean and beautifully decorated. Ample bathroom space with fantastic showers. But best of all was the owner, Sally. Bubbly, happy to have guests, loved our son and our dog from the moment we arrived and simply made a god b&b and excellent one! Great food at breakfast too!
We will be back to try the self catering units sometime soon.

What a fabulous review and thank you for all your kind comments. May I say that Sam made my day when he hugged me as he left. What a great little boy! I was very impressed with the state of the bedroom after an 8 year old had been in it.......he is welcome anytime.......he could be head of housekeeping!!
It is very rewarding to receive such praise......thank you.

What a great location so near Rutland Water yet so far away as well, so very quiet. Stayed in Parsnip Place which was very clean and beautifully furnished with a very well equipped kitchen. The bed was huge and comfortable so slept well every night. Would certainly recommend to friends and family and will hopefully return.

Thank you for your recommendation and taking the time to write a review. It is very peaceful here.....we are lucky to be close enough to enjoy Rutland Water but just a short walk away to peace and tranquility away from it all! We hope to welcome you back soon.

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night break at Broccoli Bottom, staying in the bed and breakfast rooms.
Sally was a fabulous host who greeted us with a friendly welcome and made sure we felt right at home, nothing was too much trouble.
The room was well furnished and spacious with a lovely view over the fields, finished with a nice size ensuite perfect for what we needed.
Breakfast was served with a smile and portions were generous, setting us up well for a day of cycling.
We can't fault Broccoli Bottom, it was excellent value for money and having had a look around the cottages before leaving I am sure we will be back in the future with friends and family.
This was an excellent discovery in a brilliant location, with friendly dogs and an even friendlier hostess.

What a great find. This is a fabulous B&B. The best breakfast I have had in a very long time. Every single item perfectly cooked - what a great treat. The hosts are great fun and they do everything they can to make you feel welcome.
The location is perfect for Rutland Lake, just a short walk away, down some quiet roads. This was our first trip so we wanted to make the most of it. We walked round the whole thing in a day. The next day I cycled (on roads not round the lake). The roads are in very good condition. I'm very impressed by the B&B and Rutland.

Room Tip: We stayed in the twin room in the main house which has a separate bathroom for sole use. Robes are p...

A group of us stayed in Fennel Folly and Mange Toute Maison for a friend's wedding in nearby Oakham. The accommodation was perfect and just wanted we needed. The cottages were nicely furnished and clean and the location was peaceful yet convenient. We found the kitchen to be well equipped and were able to cook several meals there, (not the usual one pan and one wooden spoon you often find in self catering places!). The hosts were delightful and even let us check out late when we were hung over and slow to start the following day. It was great to find somewhere self catering where we could do a short break. I would highly recommend Broccoli Bottom and only wish we had long to explore the surrounding countryside more...beautiful.

Room Tip: I think Fennel Folly was possibly the better of the two cottages we rented as it had a beautiful vie...

We had a fabulous stay for my parent's Golden Wedding celebration with the cousins having lots of space to play badminton and ride their bikes. Cycled around Rutland Water and explored some of the other local areas. Very relaxing and very friendly. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed having all your family stay with us and it was a pleasure to see the children having lots of fun playing outdoor games. For me....rescuing the baby hedgehog was a highlight! We are ideal for family/group get togethers and we are pleased you chose us to have yours. Thank you for your kind comments and taking the time to share your experience.

Had a lovely, relaxing 3 days in Fennel Folly. Watched the sun come up and go down from the balcony as well watching the 2 resident horses get giddy!! Ideally placed to walk to Rutland Water, which is beautiful especially early evening! We did 14 miles on foot but it is also has a well maintained cycle path. The house is only 2 minute walk to the fabulous village pub for a drink or meal. Lots of lovely villages nearby too to stroll around. The hosts were very welcoming and the accommodation was clean, comfortable and very peaceful. Would definitely recommend a stay here, it is really lovely.

I am so pleased you were able to take full advantage of the new balcony at Fennel Folly. It really is a very relaxing place to sit and look out after a busy day! The horses were obviously having a nice time too! It is very kind of you to write a review about your stay and we hope to welcome you back again soon.
