A Dash of Quaint and a Sprinkle of Cosy at The Bee Cottage in Cottesmore

For those on the hunt for delightful self-catering accommodations that offer a unique blend of historic charm and modern comforts, look no further than The Bee Cottage. This 17th Century thatched cottage, nestled in the picturesque village of Cottesmore near Oakham, is a mere five minutes from the breathtaking Rutland Water and comfortably sleeps up to five guests. 

In the Heart of The Bee Cottage

Stepping into The Bee Cottage, one immediately encounters the seamless blend of its traditional architecture with contemporary conveniences. The beauty of its original features, including exposed beams, is accentuated by the tasteful modern interior.

The lounge beckons with three inviting seating areas, each with its unique charm. The primary spot is equipped with a cosy sofa set against a roaring wood-burning stove and a television equipped with complimentary Netflix. If it's a more intimate setting you crave, the second seating space is the perfect backdrop with its stone fireplace, ideal for relaxed conversations. The third corner, tucked away by a window, is a tranquil spot, perfect for indulging in a good book or savouring your morning brew. Adding to the indoor ambiance, the conservatory, adorned with two large chairs and a soft glow from a string of lightbulbs, presents an enchanting setting for an evening nightcap.

The kitchen, a perfect blend of utility and style, is equipped with everything you need - a fridge freezer, microwave, gas stove, oven, and dishwasher. A conservatory extension floods the dining space with natural light, adding to the ambiance of meals enjoyed at the six-seater dining table.

Sleeping at The Bee Cottage

When it comes to bedtime, The Bee Cottage has three tastefully decorated rooms on offer. The ground floor room, a single, is bathed in beautiful views and provides direct garden access. On the first floor, the master room boasts a king-size bed with a handcrafted wooden headboard. The final room features twin beds adorned with luxurious hotel-quality cotton sheets. Completing the upstairs space is a family bathroom, which beautifully combines modern metro tiles with an electric power shower.
