On our working all pasture farm we are keen to encourage natural wildlife habitats and over the years have created 12 ponds, 4 areas of woodland and cut and layered most of the hedges to create an environment that is beneficial to both farm livestock and the great variety of wildlife living on our farm.
Our farmhouse is situated only half a mile from Oakham with extensive views looking south across the valley. The extensive garden has been opened during 2015 for the National Garden Scheme. There is direct access onto the local rights of way network for riding and walking.
William and Jane wish to provide you with a comfortable place to stay near Oakham and Braunston in Rutland. We have up to four rooms available, sleeping a maximum of seven guests. Each room is decorated and furnished to a very high standard so you will not be disappointed, no matter which room you choose.
We are on hand to make certain that your stay at Hill Top farm is as enjoyable as possible and to give advice on local events and places of interest.
You are invited to wander around the extensive garden to look at the plantings, wild flower areas, tree plantings, ponds and poultry/fruit tree paddock. For those wishing to walk further the farm is all grass with attractive ponds, views, and woodlands.
