We stayed in the 4 poster, lovely room with fantastic views. The guest lounge was also great, with very comfortable sofas and a roaring wood burner. Rob is a charming host, full of useful advice and local knowledge and very helpful in all respects. His breakfasts are superb, we tried both the traditional English and his special with his own smoked trout, which we really recommend. We cycled around Rutland Water on our first day, the Lodge is right on the cycle path and the next went for a long walk in he snow. It is a great location for walking, cycling, exploring lovely villages and towns and there are also good places to eat. We recommend the nearby Fox and Hounds in Exton, a picture perfect village. There are also a couple of places in walking distance - useful in heavy snow. We tried Barnsdale Hall Hotel, just behind the Lodge. Not the best decor or ambiance, but surprisingly great food, good value and very friendly staff.

Room Tip: The 4 poster has great lake views

Huge thanks for such a great review. It's a great pleasure to share this idyllic lakeside location with our guests. This winter we have been maintaining areas such as the newly decorated Lakeview Guest Lounge and the entrance hall, with new, modern colours and pictures reflecting the scenery outside the door; dramatic sunsets etc.
This is all part if our continuous improvement programme. Further improvements are planned for the Spring time.
I have to say a special thanks to everyone's positive reaction to my breakfasts! I am proud to try to serve the 'perfect English breakfast' and have experimented with various types of sausages from different specialists and makers. I think these Lincolnshire sausages are perfect for breakfasts and the special bacon I use which doesn't reduce down to nothing, delicious!
For those choosing the 'Barnsdale Breakfast', of my own rod caught trout, oak-smoked in my own 'cold smoker' with scrambled eggs, you are in for a treat.
The rainbow trout caught from the lake recently have been the best quality I have ever seen. They have been feeding on a new 'bloody red' shrimp which has appeared in Rutland Water over the past season and it has made the fish's flesh an amazing deep red colour and tastes exceptional, see my fishing website for details.
Remember, it's not just fishermen who come here, in fact most of our guests are not fishermen, they come for the fantastic location and the easy access to the lake and cycle track. All our rooms are fresh, modern and comfortable. We try to go out of our way to make your stay a great one, thanks and come again! Rob Waddington owner and fly fishing coach and fishing guide

The Lakeside B&B is literally right on the water, and some of the rooms (ours, the 4 poster) have a truly fantastic view- a great way to wake up on New Year ’s Day. Rob was the most obliging host: he couldn’t be more helpful in the lead up to our stay and throughout, he was very available to help, but equally allowed us to make ourselves at home and treat the B&B as a home from home. The guest lounge in particular is a great feature, with stunning views and a lovely roaring fire. A great breakfast and very comfy bed-if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in the area, this is a very comfy, welcoming and pleasing choice.

Couldn't have been made more welcome by our host, Rob. Clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price within a 2 minute stroll to Rutland water and within easy reach of both Oakham and Stamford.

Highly recommend Rob's Barnsdale Breakfast as a special treat one morning.

All in all a lovely place to stay.
