“A perfect base in Rutland”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

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.

Reviewed 25 July 2010

Booked Parsnip Place, which is a one bedroom self catering unit, part of Broccoli Bottom,as a last minute decision for a weekend away. What a good decision that was! The unit was a single storey semi detached bungalow. We had french doors opening from both the living room and the bedroom on to a small patio with table and chairs. The open plan living'dining/kitchen was well appointed with two comfortable chairs and TV, dining table and 2 chairs, full fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc. Bed linen, towels, tea towels provided and included.
The view was of an area used for horse riding.
Quiet location but close to many places of interest. Our main focus was supposed to be cycling around the lake but we were disappointed that many stretches were far from the water and often alongside roads which we did not really enjoy, the circuit of the peninsula was the most enjoyable part. However, this meant that we looked for alternatives and discovered the joys of Stamford, amazing place, and Barnsdale Gardens which we also enjoyed.
Broccoli bottom is a well placed for a few days of sightseeing and the self catering means it need not be an expensive option.
