In a nutshell: First floor apartment, garden and courtyard, walk to village pubs and shop. These exclusive holiday homes are part of Ranksborough Hall. This grand 19th century house is situated in a delightful village just a couple of miles from Oakham, the pretty county town of Rutland, England's smallest county. Without doubt Rutland Water is the focus for many on holiday in Rutland. At the time of construction it was Europe's largest man-made lake and has established itself as a real tourist attraction. It is the perfect place to enjoy a cycle ride in a safe and family friendly environment with a relatively flat cycle track around the reservoir. The full circuit of nearly 30 miles, including frequent stops to enjoy the scenery or a pub lunch, is a great day out. Rutland Water offers fishing, bike hire, sailing, boat cruises, nature reserves where you can watch the famous Rutland ospreys and even a climbing wall for the kids.
