Lovely rustic accommodation. Very well equipped kitchen. Excellent communication. Comfortable beds. Lovely breakfast and friendly hosts, will be back for lambing season!

– J from England @ The Old Stables Retreat 2022

We could not recommend Jan’s place highly enough. Jan was SO friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. The house itself is gorgeous and absolutely perfect, such a lovely base for our exploration of the area – we wished we could have stayed longer. The beds were so comfortable and the farm shop food was delicious. We were also lucky enough to visit during lambing season, and Jan kindly gave us a tour of the farm and showed us the baby lambs that had just been born! Overall such a treat, and we hope to return soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!!

Great place and location with a lovely farm shop on the doorstep as well

I stayed for a couple of nights to do an online meditation retreat. The accommodation was perfect for that, the living area was so cosy and comfortable. Jan was away when I arrived but was very quick to reply to any messages. I met Jan’s family who were so friendly, welcoming and accommodating (I also fell in love with Fred the dog)

Jan was a wonderful host, welcoming me after my international flight left me bereft of somnolence for far too many hours. The location was ideal for isolation, meditation, and mourning which I very much needed after the loss of my father. The walks from the Old Mill are invigorating and the food from the farm shop next door is delicious. You’ll not find a more rustic and peaceful venue which provides landscape, agricultural noises, and beautiful skies at night and during the day. Power to the Retreat is supplied from solar on one of the barns, indicating how the owner is conscious of the environment. I highly recommend a stay if you have the opportunity.

We absolutely loved this stunning cottage. There isn’t a single bad word I could say about it. We loved it so much that we stayed for an additional week! The surroundings were exceptionally beautiful and also really close to some wonderful old English towns. The cherry on top was that Jan left us some treats in the fridge. We’ll be back for sure 🙂

If you are looking for countryside old farm hose style then this is the place for you. We were given a breakfast pack for 2 with produce straight from the farm. The sausages and bacon were the best I’ve ever tasted. 😊

Beautiful, peaceful, cosy retreat, in the heart of the English countryside! We absolutely loved our stay at The Old Mill Retreat. The little house was warm and cosy, the location was stunning and the hosts were wonderful. We loved nipping to the farm shop right next door for anything we needed to eat and drink + stepping out the door straight into country walks and being just a short drive to beautiful villages and towns like Uppingham, Oakham, Stamford, Rutland Water etc. The breakfast we received from the hosts straight from the farm was absolutely perfect – bread, butter, eggs, bacon and sausages!! The place was so clean and has everything we could need. Would 100% recommend and we have already booked our next stay!

Simply “Perfect” – exactly what it says on the tin, close to both Melton and Oakham, a beautifully quaint property!
