The Bee Cottage offers wonderful self catering accommodation in the quaint village of Cottesmore. Our 16th Century thatched cottage near Oakham is only 5 minutes away from Rutland Water and sleeps up to 5 people.


This charming cottage offers high-quality accommodation whilst maintaining original features, including gorgeous exposed beams.

The lounge has 3 cosy seating areas to relax in. The main sofa faces a toasty wood burner and a TV with free Netflix. A second seating area faces a pretty stone fireplace and is a lovely spot for socialising and relaxing. Tucked away into a corner by a window is a third seating area, ideal for reading a good book or enjoying a morning coffee. You can also relax in the beautiful conservatory which is furnished with two large chairs and has space for a tray of coffee. The string of lightbulbs creates a magical atmosphere in the evening, perfect for after-dinner drinks.

A well-equipped and airy kitchen comes with a range of appliances to suit all your needs: fridge freezer, microwave, gas stove, oven and a dishwasher. The elegant dining room is between the kitchen, conservatory and lounge. Large windows from the conservatory bring plenty of natural light in and the dining table seats up to 6 people.

Three bedrooms are available. On the ground floor is a single room which enjoys lovely views and garden access. Upstairs is a master room with a king-size bed including a stunning handmade wooden headboard. A third room comes with twin beds and lavish hotel quality cotton sheets. Upstairs there is also a family bathroom with glossy metro tiles and an electric power shower.

Outside there is a south-facing garden with two seating areas. Ideal for al fresco dining whilst the sun is shining.

A welcome pack including locally baked pastries and locally ground coffee is provided. We also provided 1 bag of wood in the winter for the open fire and a Bee Cottage map of Rutland.
