We stayed in Parsnip Place and 5 other adult "family" members occupied another 2 self catering options. Two other adults and a baby chose the b and b option. All agreed the choice was great for our purpose - proximity to Exton Hall where we attended a wedding reception. However, we received more than mere convenience from this stay. The accommodation was modern, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. In particular the bed was vast and very comfortable. Having access to laundry facilities was a real bonus and 5 minutes walk away the Horse and Jockey provided excellent meals and good beer from an Oakham brewery, amongst other offerings. Wi/fi connection for our ipod touch also worked well. Our hosts "The Udales" were all very friendly and helpful. This is a great spot from which to explore a part of rural England that has retained much of its old world charm and character. There are some really quaint and interesting places to explore around here and a week was just not enough.
