Whether you're in Rutland for an event, on business or on holiday to discover this still little-known area of rural England, come and stay! We promise warm hospitality for up to 4 people in two lovely bedrooms - one king size, one double - a delicious supper if you decide to stay in and a great breakfast to wake up to! We're on an elegant, residential stretch of Uppingham's historic High Street, a minute's walk from all its amenities and a short stroll from beautiful open countryside.
Your bedroom will be on the second, completely private, floor of our Victorian townhouse. The main bedroom is very large and airy with views over the rooftops to the countryside. It has a king size bed with top of the range mattress. Next door is its own spacious shower room, with overhead, "rain" showerhead. Also on this floor is a pretty double bedroom, with lovely views over the garden. This will ONLY be let if you are travelling with children or friends and wish to share the shower room. Rest assured, you will NEVER share the facilities with strangers and your floor is totally private. You will need to be able to climb two flights of stairs to reach it though!
During British Birdwatching Fair and Burghley Horse Trials, special rates and a minimum stay of 3 nights apply for UP TO FOUR GUESTS.
Disponible para huéspedes
We hope you'll feel at home enough to join us for a chat in the kitchen, or curl up by the fire with a book in our lovely sitting room. And of course our pretty courtyard garden is always at your disposal - hopefully for sunny breakfasts! - or to enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine.
Atención a los huéspedes
We are always on hand with advice to help you make the most of our lovely county. Our maps and guide books are at your disposal. If you would like to join us for supper, we would be delighted, given a day's notice, to cook two delicious courses at a price of £15 per person, taking into consideration any dietary restrictions, allergies or simply dislikes you may have! We are not licensed to sell alcohol, so of course you are most welcome to bring your own! Or we can give you recommendations on local pubs and restaurants.

My husband Bill and I moved from London to a cottage in Rutland in 1981. We both love all things media - I come from a background in magazines, music and film and Bill is still busy making TV commercials and feature films - but we feel really lucky when we consider everything that our country life in the East Midlands offers - from log fires and long walks to cosy pubs and the best rugby team in the country!
When I realised that one of the things I enjoy most about life in Rutland, is preparing my house for friends to come and stay - laying the log fires and lighting the candles, making up their beds with best linens, sparkling the bathroom fittings and deciding what to serve for dinner and breakfast - I came to the conclusion that I should probably be doing this for a living! We were Airbnb hosts for two years in our house in Seaton, Rutland, and felt privileged to welcome wonderful guests from all over the world - they in turn left us dozens of Five Star reviews, many of them returning for more visits. When we moved two miles down the road into Uppingham, it made sense to look for a house where we could carry on the business we enjoy so much, and to offer the warm hospitality our guests have come to expect. We both look forward to welcoming you to The Hollies and to sharing our home, our great little town and our beautiful county with you.
