Great holiday cottage. My family and I have had a lovely, relaxing, peaceful stay at the Moo Cow cottage. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy your stay there, including a fully equipped kitchen. The homemade chocolate cake that was left for us was delicious! The host is friendly and helpful but not intrusive. I would recommend this holiday cottage to my friends and family.

Jennifer Shepherd, 

Had a wonderful few days at Moo Cow Cottage. Every little detail was thought of. The beds were lovely and comfortable. Lovely walks through the woods behind the farm. Would definitely love to return sometime. Oh and the home made chocolate cake was the best I’ve ever tasted! A lovely welcome gift. Thank you Jennifer.

Fantastic location close to Rutland Water, Oakham and Stamford. Well presented with everything youd need for a nice stay and lots of nice touches (a cake waiting on arrival and toys for the little ones). Had a fantastic time and would happily stay there again. Jennifer was a welcoming host and happy to help out in any way she could.


Quiet and peaceful location. Spotlessly clean, superbly well equipped and comfortable. The owner has thought of everything guests you might need, providing many useful items, including a delicious cake on arrival. Excellent communication and great support for guests.


The cottage is beautiful, clean and well equipped. Next to the farm where children can see animals. Jennifer is extremely kind and helpful.

The location is superb. The owners are really nice people and the cottage is first class. I really can't fault it and brilliant for a few days away or longer. The equipment provided is plentiful and there is even a cupboard of things to use that you may have forgotten (toothbrush, deodorant, etc etc) So thoughtful. There are three lovely bedrooms with wonderful views and the cottage is immaculately clean and welcoming. There is NOTHING not to like and I have never put that in a review before


We have spent a lovely family weekend in this pretty, spotlessly clean cottage. The lit open fire and delicious chocolate cake made by Jennifer was very welcoming, as was the kind friendly hospitality of Jennifer and her family. The cottage is very well equipped with comfy beds and large rooms, set in a peaceful position on a working farm. Our grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed looking at the cows, playing on the toy ride-on tractors and walking down the lane to the duck pond. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer in this beautiful area of Rutland but we hope to return again in the future.

We had a lovely stay at Moo Cow Cottage. It was the perfect location for a relaxing family getaway. Would definitely recommend! Thank you Jennifer for being a great host.


Jennifer was extremely helpful and accommodating to our group of 4 adults and 3 children. This was our 2nd stay and we are lucky to have amazing weather so enjoyed a lovely BBQ in the garden. The kids loved playing on the toys and rooms where all clean and tidy. Excellent cake on arrival and lovely to have with a cup of tea.... even fresh milk and tea bags supplied!!! Would highly recommend Moo Cow. Good location to explore Rutland Waters.

Wonderful time, cottage beautifully clean, homely and everything we needed. Beds really good quality, beautifully decorated, co-ordinated bedrooms. Open fire was the icing on the cake. Jennifer the owner is a lovely lady, nothing to much trouble.


Having seen the photo's on line of a lovely cottage I can honestly say that it was even better than the photo's. The setting was amazing with fields to look out on and totally peaceful and relaxing setting. We arrived with our friends with home made cake and tea which was beautifully laid out for us. Jennifer was so lovely and made us feel so welcome. It was a total delight to have stayed at Moo Cow Cottage and we will definitely be looking to book again in the future.
