A lovely stay in this glorious B&B. Cottesmore is a lovely village in rutland, full of chocolate-box thatched cottages, a nice pub, chippy and convenience store/post office.
The owners & staff were all very friendly and helpful, giving ideas and guidance when asked. It was a simple check in, being shown to our room, but very Covid-safe. The room was No.6 in the annexe around the back. This has a huge super-king bed and two comfy tub chairs. There's a "p"-bath with a digital shower over it, adding a fancy twist on the usual. The breakfast was delicious, with local butchers sausages and bacon, and local free range eggs. The mushrooms weren't tinned (an excellent change from other B&Bs), although the tomatoes were. There's a choice of a full monty and a half monty, and the smaller one was more than enough. They have homemade jams or marmalades to enjoy with the toast and the coffee or tea was very good - and they're available to purchase along with some homemade chutneys. Our only niggle - and this is being super critical - was the room had a few cobwebs and we found a sweet wrapper under a chair, but with the Covid problems, this is understandable, but needs addressing. Overall, it was a lovely stay in a lovely village, in a lovely part of the country, and yes, we're already planning for a return next year.
