Rutland England’s most rural county…. In the heart of the East Midlands is a county largely unspoilt by the modern era; a place where sleepy villages nestle amongst rolling hills and where you can still enjoy traditional village fetes in summer complete with cake competitions, maypole dancing and Morris Men. In Rutland, good food is a passion and Rutlanders believe in fully supporting our local producers; pick up a copy of Eat Drink Rutland for the best places to dine and shop for local food. Rutlanders rejoiced when independence was granted from Leicestershire in 1997; and they’ll proudly share this slice of English idyll with you on your next short break.

Renowned for its excellent range of antiques stores, fine art galleries and book shops, visitors are attracted here from far and wide. Uppingham has a character all of its own and those who live in the town are justifiably proud of it. It offers a traditional shopping experience long since lost in larger towns; many of the local shops are still family run and provide a high level of personal service. The majority of Uppingham’s shops can be found on High Street and Market Place but there are lots of other unique retailers hidden away along ancient alleyways which are worth seeking out. This attractive town has an intriguing history and in years gone by it was known as a great centre of entertainment. All manner of spectacles took place including bear baiting and cock fighting, while a car park behind Mercers Yard was once the site of an elephant house and legend has it that an elephant is actually buried beneath it!

Theatre, Heritage & The Arts The arts are thriving in Rutland; whenever you come to visit there will be something going on – whether you prefer fine art, live music, Shakespeare or comedy, you’ll find it all here…

Theatres Rutland offers a choice of indoor and outdoor theatres! The widely renowned Tolethorpe Hall, home of the much loved Stamford Shakespeare Company, offers magical performances of Shakespearean classics and family favourites in an open-air setting, with all the comfort of an indoor theatre. The magic of Tolethorpe begins when you enter the grounds, whether you enjoy a picnic on the lawn or meal in one of the elegant restaurants, it is worth arriving in good time to soak in the atmosphere, before being seated beneath an all-weather canopy to enjoy an enchanting performance on a woodland stage. The three plays for 2014 are As You Like It, The Taming of the Shrew and Alice in Wonderland & Through the looking Glass. Or if you prefer a more traditional theatre experience head to Uppingham Theatre, which has built an enviable reputation for the quality of its live entertainment. From West End shows to top class symphony orchestras and amazing jazz performances, its events diary is packed all year round. Did you know: The chancel of St Andrews Church in  Lyddington, was built with acoustic pots placed in recesses near the tops of the walls in the early 14th century. This amplifies the sound providing splendid acoustics, making it the perfect home for Music in Lyddington,  who provide  fine music in a regular series of high quality concerts for all to enjoy.

Your guide to quality When you decide to visit Rutland, you’ll want to be assured that the accommodation you’ve chosen to stay in meets the standards you would expect. That’s why, in this guide, you’ll find members of the two nationally recognised quality assurance schemes – The AA and Quality in Tourism. These schemes assess accommodation providers against a rigorous set of national criteria and inspect each property every year to ensure standards are being maintained. We also list businesses that have had the basic assessment ensuring they are ‘Clean, Safe & Legal’. Full accommodation listings can be found on the Discover Rutland website.

Accommodation Ratings made easy ★ Simple, practical, no frills ★★ Well presented and well run ★★★ Good level of quality and comfort ★★★★ Excellent service throughout ★★★★★ Exceptional with a degree of luxury

Star Ratings Quality assured accommodation is graded with stars, except the AA assessed camping and caravanning sites which are graded with pennants. Star ratings are designed to meet the expectations of consumers with regards to quality.

A Guide to the awards Awaiting Grading

If you find this next to a property listing, it means that the property has applied to participate in either The AA or Visit England scheme and is waiting to be assessed.

Michelin Star

A hallmark of fine dining quality, the stars are given annually by Michelin’s anonymous and independent reviewers.

AA Dinner Awards

Awards For Hotels, Guest Accommodation and Self-Catering properties. These awards are given to an establishment in addition to the star rating, and reflect the highest standards of quality in bathrooms, bedrooms and service.

AA & Quality in Tourism Breakfast Awards Properties with these awards offer their guests quality and choice at breakfast combined with service and hospitality which exceeds their star rating.

AA Food Rosettes

Holders of AA rosettes demonstrate a high standard of cooking which sets them apart from other restaurants in their area. They create dishes using quality local ingredients put together with care understanding and skill.

The AA pie symbol indicate a very special dinner with an emphasis on freshly prepared local ingredients.

Walkers, Cyclists, Pets & Families Welcome

Properties with the any of the Welcome logos offer facilities to meet the needs of these visitors e.g. drying facilities for clothes and secure areas for bicycles.
