Nestling in the quiet English countryside, England's smallest county offers Rutland Water, an array of unspoilt villages and two attractive market towns packed with charm. Rich in history, full of character and undiscovered by many; Rutland is an idyllic rural destination offering a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
While being a relatively hidden gem, Rutland is convenient to reach from all directions as it is situated in the heart of the East Midlands, making it the ideal location for getting away from it all. Cambridge, Birmingham, Lincoln and York are all accessible for a day trip from your Rutland Retreat.
Visit Oakham, Uppingham or Stamford to find unique and independent boutique stores, theatres and art galleries. The shops offer quality clothing, unique gifts, along with the renowned Goldmark Gallery in Uppingham and exquisite antique shops.

For those with children interested in having a Retreat as a second home, the area is unique in having not one but three of the top public schools in the United Kingdom - Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle within 20 minutes drive.
