Let the twitching begin…
Rutland has become a hive of activity as the final preparations are made for the British Birdwatching Fair which starts at Rutland Water Nature Reserve tomorrow and runs until Sunday 19th August. All the details on the Bird Fair can be found on their website http://www.birdfair.org.uk/. There are celebrity lectures and cruises on Rutland Water as well as a whole array of exhibitors and trade stands. By all accounts the event gets larger and larger every year so this year’s event is expected to be the biggest and best ever. Even the forecast is looking good!
The British Birdwatching Fair takes place at Rutland Water Nature Reserve in Egleton, which is near to Puddle Cottage (approximately 5 miles). Puddle Cottage is located in Edith Weston on the south shore of Rutland Water and walking distance Rutland Sailing club and Rutland Water Fishing Lodge. The village of Edith Weston has a pub which serves food as well as a small village shop stocking all the essentials.
The cottage itself has been recently refurbished and gained its 4 star Quality in Tourism Award for self-catering, and has one bedroom which can be presented as a super king sized bed or two full sized single beds. The cottage maintains all the charm of an old cottage such as exposed brickwork and timber, but has all the mod cons such as full central heating, a large flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD, free WIFI, a washing machine and a dishwasher.The cottage also welcomes well behaved dogs. All bed linen and towels are provided. The location means that the cottage is also just 8 miles away from the market towns of Oakham, Stamford and Uppingham.
