Kathryn was a perfect host. Rest and be Thankful is a charming cottage. We were welcomed with bread, milk, filter coffee, tea bags and charmingly a bottle of fizz, perhaps because it was New Year, but whatever the reason, it was gratefully received. The accomodation was clean and tidy and the kitchen had everything we needed. Gardens and orchard were great for our dogs and there are plenty of great walks close by. We walked through the woods to The Paper Mill in Wansford for food (highly recommend the fish and chips). The cottage is quite remote so very peaceful. Amazing views and I cannot find fault with the accommodation, the location or the host. Perfect weekend.
Myself and my family had a fantastic time at Rest and Be Thankful. The location was great as it was within easy reach of all the places we wanted to visit. The property itself had everything we needed and more. It is a beautiful property with great views and walks. We felt comfortable and welcome from the second we arrived.
Friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming hosts. Excellent accommodation, communication with the hosts fantastic. Air conditioning was a godsend due to the hot conditions. We’ll definitely be back
What a great place to stay! A welcome home from home while we transition from one country to another. All the amenities anyone would need and the air conditioning was also welcome during the hot day sof summer. Great beds too! thank you so much!
Perfect if you’re looking for a rural country experience. Kathryn provides a very warm and welcoming stay. A very comfortable two bedroom cottage with plenty of space. A true feeling of the English countryside way of life. If this is what you are looking for, you will find it difficult to match.
10/10! Peaceful location, a delightful cottage with everything you need. Helpful, friendly owners. We hope to return in 2018.
Inside, the cottage was of the highest standard, a real home from home. Everything you needed in the kitchen and state of the art Air Con downstairs for cold and hot days. Hosts were absolutely wonderful, couldn’t do enough. I had parents and dogs with us - rules were set out in a pleasant way regarding dogs etc. to ensure everyone keeps the premises beautiful, which I appreciated. The cottage is right next to Sulehay Nature Reserve, so nice to be able to walk out of the gate, walk a short distance and find a great, safe walk. I arrived in need of a holiday and the very first day had relaxed completely in this peaceful, charming cottage. We’ll be back!!!
Really cute cottage, really well fitted out. Thank you so much Kathryn for being the perfect host and making us welcome. We will return.
The surrounding area is blessed with lovely walks, beautiful scenery and a truly restful and peaceful charm. Within easy travelling distance, an abundance of lovely gardens and boundless history are accessible. Great market towns, amazing grand estates, and we were not disappointed with any of the eateries recommended recommended by our helpful hosts. The cottage was well equipped in all respects and the very effective wood burner was much appreciated. Very highly recommended!
Excellent location - have been before and would go again.
Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay, for decorating the cottage so beautifully and providing plenty of firewood.We had everything we needed and more! The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in!Many thanks and a Happy New Year! Maybe we will be back one day and we will certainly recommend you.
“It lived up to it’s name! Very kind welcome and support!
Spotlessly clean, cosy and lovely views. All you need for a break from the huddle and bustle.
A hidden gem, thank you! We will return!
A lovely holiday cottage, very cosy and a homely feeling. The owners a very friendly and really like to help and facilitate! We certainly want to come again.
Comfortable, cosy and just gorgeous! Hosts were brilliant, tranquil surroundings and easy access to everything you could want.
Great cottage with lovely hosts. We had a lovely time, would recommend to anyone. If you are looking for a restful retreat, then this is the place.
Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely property in a great rural location 15 minutes from Peterborough centre. Kathryn was very communicative and gave us a very warm welcome. She kindly left the air conditioning on the day we arrived which happened to be one of the hottest! Accommodation spotless and with everything we needed including bread, butter, milk etc for breakfast. Beds very comfortable, many thanks!
A very comfortable and clean cottage in a wonderful peaceful location. Plenty of places to visit nearby, helpful and friendly owners.
The cottage is very carefully and extremely well equipped and the owners have put a great deal of thought into setting it up to provide everything their guests might need. The owners made us feel welcome , were on hand to answer any questions and offered us their help when we needed it.
Such a lovely quiet spot, but a minute from the A1 so great for exploring the Rutland and Cambridgeshire countryside.
10/10! Excellent quality cottage. Very helpful and friendly owners next door.
Lovely cottage, lovely holiday.
My wife and I had just come back from our honeymoon and wanted to get away with our two dogs. The cottage was a perfect size for what we needed with all the amenities and comfirts of home. The grounds were great for the dogs and there wer plenty of walks as well as dog friendly pubs to eat in. Owners were very helpful and friendly in advising on places to eat and visit in the area both in person and in the form of a welcome folder. Would certainly consider returning in the future.
Lovely, peaceful place with a great view of fields. We relaxed immediately, stars at night and total quiet. We spotted badgers one night. Everything provided including the added touches of toiletries in bathroom and milk, bread and jam in the kitchen, high quality bedding and towels. Hosts are very friendly and happy to take the time to introduce you to the animals. Loved the horses, dogs and glimpse of the cat. Will stay again when next in the area.
A brilliant location for walking, good pubs and Burghley Horse Trials! Thank you for a lovely week spent here in your cosy cottage.
Thank you both for your kindness and hospitality! We’ve enjoyed our stay a lot. Our son will definitely miss Monty and Purdey! Great Place!
We had a wonderful stay. Beautiful setting and property with wonderful hosts. We loved it and will definitely be back.
We stayed here for three nights and thought it was fantastic. It was home from home with everything you could need, in a beautiful area out in the countryside but not far from Peterborough and Stamford. Everything in the cottage is top quality and the beds are so comfortable. We would definitely stay here again when we are visiting family. Can’t speak highly enough of Rest and be Thankful. A big thank you to Kathryn and her husband.
It is a lovely cottage in a peaceful location. Very lovely hosts.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. My daughter was very taken with the ewes and their lambs in the orchard and we were delighted with how immaculate everything was and the comfy beds. Kathryn made us feel very welcome and even provided bread, milk and other essentials. We would love to come and stay again next year please!
Kathryn is a great host and the cottage is beautiful.
A fantastic welcome and the most beautiful surroundings. Everything we needed for a weekend away with the family, dogs and all!
Very quiet and peaceful cottage with virtually everything one could want in the way of equipment. Lovely grounds around the cottage. Ideal location for touring the area and lots of local brochures available in the lobby.
10/10! Fantastic week here, lovely cottage and smashing owners. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage,
Dog and human friendly cottage with lovely walks in the immediate vicinity. Easy access from the A1. Very recently prepared as a holiday let so all very new, clean and well appointed. Charming hosts. Beautifully quiet country location.
