Self Catering in Rutland - Exton
Sleeps a maximum of: 6
Pricing From: £274.13
A home from home canvas-wrapped three bedroom colonial style tent. Exton Estate is located within 500 hectares of beautiful parkland in the centre of the county of Rutland - surrounded by stunning views and at just a short distance from the internationally famous Rutland Water Nature Reserve.
The tent is equipped for practical day-to-day comfort and furnished with a gracious, relaxed elegance. Solid decking floors run throughout the spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance to the rear.
The living area is open-plan with plenty of room for families and friends to enjoy the 'at home' parts of your holiday together. A solid, wood-burning stove is the lodge's warming heart. It makes for a cosy retreat from our seasonal chill. A sofa and array of casual seating circle a large coffee table. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine, or prepare for Monopoly mania or several strenuous sessions of snap.
DINE IN COMFORTYou can sit up for breakfast and supper in the dining area. A pine table and high-backed chairs seat six with ease. From the practical selection of tableware and ornamental dressings in the kitchen, you can decide whether to lay the table for a simple family feast or add those touches of candle-lit elegance that make dinner the highlight of your day.
SLEEP TIGHTAll the bedrooms are roomy and separated for privacy and comfort. The tent has one double; one twin and a bunk bed room. All beds are all in solid pine with comfortable mattresses and plush duvet sets throughout. The tent has ample room to lose holiday clutter and to hang, stack and drawer clothes and toiletries too.
YOUR VERY OWN SHOWER AND WCThe wooden door to the great outdoors here adds to your privacy because this is also where you'll find the shower and WC. The shower runs off an independent hot water system and the spray can be altered to suit with its adjustable head. Both 'rooms' are plumbed in, to drain and flush away from the standing.
NOW YOU'RE COOKINGHome cooking takes on various forms. The kitchen has a butane hob for copious cups of tea - ideal for simple meals or a stir-fried treat. Simmer an all-in casserole on the hob of the wood burning stove or warm up a curry carry out inside.
STEP INTO THE OUTDOORSZip yourself out of the dining area and into the practical nerve centre of your Colonial canvas hideaway. Here, there is room for all those outdoor necessities - muddy wellies, dripping coats, sandy buckets and spades.
You have the option to add on locally sourced breakfast packs, bbq packs etc. during the booking process. A 'Rural Retreats Complimentary Welcome Hamper' will not be included in a glamping booking.
