Fly Fishing

Rutland is England's smallest and oldest county. 'Multum in Parvo' 'Much in Little', couldn't be a better motto as you'll see as you discover the delights of this little gem of a county. Easily accessed from all UK towns and just 90 minutes from London, just off the main A1M you'll discover England as it used to be. Thatched cottages, rolling countryside, lovely pubs and picturesque villages 'The Cotswolds without the Crowds' is another justly deserved description.

Our Rutland Bed and Breakfast, a former lodge house to Barnsdale Hall is right on the shores of Rutland Water and on the borders of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northants and close to Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, Yorkshire and easily accessed from London.
