We just wanted a short break so that we could call on a friend in Market Harborough so booked last minute. What a delightful spot. We parked overlooking a beautiful small valley so could watch the wildlife as well as the farm animals. The site is walking distance from Uppingham so we enjoyed their Heritage trail followed by a country walk and lunch in the brasseries in the Market Square. Rutland Water is not far away but busy whereas there are numerous walks from the many pretty surrounding villages. Lyveden New Bield, a NT property, is well worth a visit and again you can walk from there and see Red Kites overhead. Friendly welcome both from the farmer's wife and the farm dog!
