If you are looking for a winter break to tie in with some Christmas shopping then why not consider a stay at Puddle Cottage. The cottage is located within 8 miles of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford, as well as being only a short walk to the banks of Rutland Water. The 4 star, self catering-cottage has recently been renovated and is the perfect base to curl up and relax in front of the open fire after a day exploring the local area. Well behaved dogs are warmly welcomed. For more information, please contact Anna on 07734175291 or e/mail
