This charming two bedroom farm estate cottage, built in 1873, has been brought right up to date. An open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge with wood burner make it truly a home from home. Super comfy beds, high quality bed linen and a well equipped kitchen mean that you can eat in or go out to enjoy one of the many local eateries. Set in a peaceful location with stunning views, relax in the orchard or walk in local nature reserves and spot deer, foxes, badgers and red kites flying overhead.

A fabulous stay. Highly recommended! We traveled with 2 small children (1.5 and 3.5 year olds) and the space was perfect. The kiddos loved the outdoor space and the kitchen with amenities were everything we needed. Hope to stay again the next time we visit family in England.

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 children and thoroughly enjoyed staying in such a peaceful location. The cottage was very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed and more. A real home from home.

Rest and be thankful is a fantastic place to stay. The house is finished to a very high standard and it is located amongst some beautiful countryside. Kathryn was a wonderful host, always smiling and offering great advice and good conversation. This really was a home from home…

Great house (with downstairs air conditioning for our hot summers!) with breakfast basics a lovely addition. Easy communication. Beautiful setting. Used as a base to explore Burghley House.
