The space
The property is in the beautiful Rutland village of Stretton, where the majority of homes are built of local Clipsham stone, and is 2 minutes from the A1. Nearby are Burghley House and Stamford (9 mi), Oakham (8 mi), Rutland Water (7 mi). We are walking distance from George Henry Wood which is ideal for dog walks and the Stretton Lakes, good for fishing. Rutland water offers many amenities including cycling ( hire available), fishing, sailing, walking and great for picnics. Excellent local eating establishments include Hambleton Hall (Michelin Star since 1982), Gastro pub The Olive Branch at nearby Clipsham and our very own village pub The Jackson Stops. We have just over 10 acres of land at the property and have recently acquired Alpacas after having horses for many years.

HI, I’m Helen. I am married to Johnny and we have 2 grown up daughters now married and living away from home. We are a family of singers, both Johnny and I are opera singers and our eldest daughter is a leading lady in the West End singing musical theatre. We moved in to Highfield Farm 15 years ago when we had horses and ponies and desperately needed some land and stables. We haven’t had horses here for some years so I decided to enter in to the world of Alpacas. They are wonderful creatures and keep me busy knitting beautiful things with their fleece. We have only been hosting on Airbnb for a year and I absolutely love it. We have met so many interesting and lovely people. I look forward to welcoming you all to Stretton.
