  • Nestled in the undulating hills of Rutland, Rutland Rural Retreats is a small, romantic and secluded, adult only, dog friendly glamping retreat set off the beaten track within 4 acres of beautiful old meadow land. RRR is located just over the Rutland border, 4 miles from the beautiful and historic market town of Uppingham. Rutland is famous for a number of things but perhaps most notably is Rutland Water, a beautiful expanse of water where you can take in the scenery on that romantic stroll, feel the breeze in your hair as you cycle around the lake (taking in the odd refreshment as you go!) or get a little more active at the water sports centre. There are also so many historic houses and gardens to be visited, quaint and cobbled market towns to enjoy and superb eateries to be spoilt from. It really is a beautiful county - not bad for being the smallest county in the country!

    Rutland Rural Retreats blends the healing powers of nature with the magic of seclusion and the comforts of home in three stylishly furnished, heated, en-suite units - two wooden pods and one Shepherds Hut. All three are fully self contained with en-suite and kitchenette and have their own secure garden areas for peace of mind when bringing canine companions. The Rutland Round is also just a few yards up the road with access to miles of off road walking and cycling routes.

  • There are just three stylish accommodation choices at Rutland Rural Retreats - Woodpecker, Bumblebee and Shepherds Rest. Unlike bigger sites, these are set a good distance away from each for maximum privacy. All three are stylishly furnished with rustic charm and have their own en-suites and kitcehnettes for maximum home comforts. No late night dashes to a toilet block here! The en-suites come complete with flushing toilets, electric shower, hand basin and heated towel rail; The kitchenette has a combination microwave oven (full oven in Shepherds rest), fridge freezer, two ring hob and all the utensils needed to make that special meal, whether that be using the kitchenette or the fire pit with BBQ arm outside. Talking of the great outdoors, the pods have their own raised decking area for enjoying that early morning cup of coffee or that late nite tipple; whilst Shepherds Rest takes that touch of luxury that little step further with its very own wood fired hot tub!  Sit back and relax with the sounds of the meadow and its inhabitants whilst the twinkling lights and lantern add magic to the evening affair.

    For those summer days there is a picnic table with seating outside together with sun loungers for relaxing with that book or just catching some rays. The pods have everything you need but should you want to venture out to see the sights and enjoy the vast array of restaurants and pubs, then there is so much to chose from. See our website for a full guide with special mention for dog friendly places!

    The site is accessed via a padlocked gate (code is provided in joining instructions) and then a short drive down a limestone track to the car park. Here you will find luggage trolleys to transport your belongings over the wooden bridge and brook to your glamping pod in the meadow beyond. Along your way, don't be surprised to see our horses happily playing or grazing in nearby paddocks and not forgetting Hamish, Hector and Hugo - our wonderfully friendly Swiss Valais black nose sheep!

  • Prices start at £145 per pod per night for a minimun 2 night stay. Discounts for longer stays.

    Bedding/towels, fire pit packs, Prosecco and early check in can be booked as extras. Dogs stay free - maximum two dogs per pod.

  • Your accommodation choices are stylishly furnished and heated. In the pods a comfy double bed is screened from the main living area and shelving and hanging space is available for your essentials. Shepherds Rest has a king size bed and the bedroom is fully enclosed. En-suites come complete with flushing toilet, electric shower, sink and heated towel rail. The main living areas have a luxurious leather sofa together with dining table. The kitchenette has everything you need for creating your feasts including combination oven/microwave (full oven in Shepherds Rest), two ring hob and fridge with freezer compartment. Underfloor heating ensures you remain toasty for those chillier autumn evenings.

    Outside each units has its own secure 1m high stock fenced garden area overlooking the meadow. Complete peace of mind when it comes to making sure your canine companions are safe and relaxing nearby. The pod gardens have their outside raised decking complete with rattan chairs and side table for enjoying that early morning coffee or late night tipple. Tastefully positioned fairy lights add to that romantic ambience as you sit back and relax with a glass of wine. For dining under the stars there is also a wooden picnic table and fire pit complete with grilling arm. Sun loungers are also provided for those who just want to sit back and relax during those lazy summer afternoons.

    Shepherds Rest has its own wood fired hot tub for guests to enjoy during their stay.
